Possibly the Stupidest Video Game Article Ever: Zelda, OoT is "Sexist, Racist, Classist"...and...Animalist...or Whatever...

Link  (har har)

Wow. This is an incredibly stupid article.

Like, off-the-known-scale, this-dumbassery-goes-to-11, hyperbolically dipshit stupid.

Sadly, is publishing more and more heinous nonsense from the "SJW" left.

This is just a warmed-over rehash of some Anita Sarkeesian nonsense. A.S. has just about one true point, and that point is so obvious that it's hard to believe that anyone needed her to point it out: it's kinda sexist to have the dude save the chick...over and over and over...

Here's my favorite bit of nonsense from this piece of crap:
Some may interpret the fate of the wealthy family, who are transformed into spiderlike creatures, in the House of Skulltulla as a condemnation of an exploitive class system, but that would be a mistake.
“Folks around here tell of a fabulously rich family that once lived in one of the houses in this village,” an elderly character in Kakariko confides. “But they say that the entire family was cursed due to their greed! Who knows what might happen to those who are consumed by greed.”
By focusing on the greed of individuals, the game ignores how private property incentivizes and even mandates such behavior. And with this moralizing focus comes a belief that society’s economic ills are intractable because of humanity’s flawed nature.
Riiiight.... Z:OoT is all pro-greed and shit...buuut...the rich people get massacred because of their greed...but that's not exactly the right theoretical pitch that a certain brand of lefty wanted...sooo...doesn't count...  If you don't explicitly condemn capitalism in your video game, you are an oppressor, Jack. And if there is any hint that personal responsibility is a thing...well, you know we don't cotton to that shit....  JFC. The game is not explicitly Marxist, ergo it's "problematic" (the uber-lefty's favorite word of the moment...) What an unmitigated load of abject horseshit.

Then there's the bit about how Z:OoT is horrible on account of not mentioning animal rights when farms come into the picture...

Seriously...this is approximately the stupidest damn shit I have seen on the internet. And that, my friends, is saying something.

(For more--and more detailed--ridicule of this bullshit, see Reddit/r/TumblrinAction's comments on this crap...)
