The headline of this article says it all really, but truth be told though. Every time CD Projekt RED has released a new The Witcher title there have been complaints about sexism and misogyny (in one shape or another). So I was just waiting for the sexist and misogyny rants to show up all over the web regarding “The Witcher 3”. And it didn’t take all that long for it to happen either (a new record anyone?). I honestly don´t get it. Does the SJWs have no life? (as they seem to have all the time in the world to whine about everything and nothing).  And why do they always interfere with other people’s lives, hobbies, creations and pleasures? I also wonder why they think that “The Witcher 3´s” game design is sexist? And WHAT is it that makes the games design so sexist? Well, I can´t speak for the SJWs. However, in my opinion, there is a huge difference between beauty, sexiness (physical attraction) and sexism.

Ciri isn´t “just” a playable female protagonist in “The Witcher 3,” but she´s also one out of many strong female characters to be found in the universe of The Witcher.

Nevertheless, it seems like the more beautiful a character (especially female characters) is, the more sexist the game is. And that goes for both the games design and the developers behind it. How does that even add up? So let me see if I get this straight. If a female (or male) character is really ugly, then it´s not sexist game design? That´s the most absurd and bizarre thing I’ve ever heard. Just take Ciri (the female protagonist from “The Witcher 3”) for example. She´s beautiful, strong and independent. What´s wrong with that? And there are plenty of strong female characters in “The Witcher 3” as well (like Triss Merigold and Yennefer of Vengerberg for example).

In my opinion, female beauty is not the same thing as sexist game design nor sexism.

I have to say that it feels like the SJW movement has put the video game industry in a chokehold. As it seems like they’re the ones that set all the game design rules of the industry at the moment (what´s okay and what´s not okay). And I think that we have reached to a point where we have to decide whether or not, a minority group should have more to say (and power) than the majority of people (read “Gamers”) who actually buy, play, support and enjoy the games which the SJWs want to censor, boycott (or what not). Thankfully enough though, CD Projekt RED is from Poland. And Poland still has the balls to put the foot down on things such as this. Because I’m a firm believer who artists and creators should never EVER have to censor or change their creations (within reasonable limits, as in no racism, pedophilia, child porn and so on).

And a footnote before I wrap this up. I have ZERO problems (whatsoever) with strong female characters in video games, movies, books, comics and so on. Just take Charlize Theron from “Mad Max: Fury Road,” or all the awesome females from Taylor Swifts “Bad Blood” (Hayley Williams from Paramore was a part of that video). That´s HOW you create epic female protagonists with style, sexiness and class.

Anyhow, what do you guys/girls think about “The Witcher 3´s” game design? Is it really sexist?
