Three characters and they're all male. Why is Rockstar afraid of progress?

Look, I'm not really for or against playing as woman, since the issue itself doesn't concern me, however the premise of quite a few of these counter arguments make no sense. We're expecting to play a game where we can shrug off bullet wounds and car crashes, yet the concept of a woman being able to do so is worth taking exception to because of the differences between the sexes in biological reality? What?

If you have a problem with potheads, throw your computer out the window right now. Why should you be able leech off the creativity of those you condemn?

People who use that kind of logic always lived in the suburbs and quiet towns. They cant possible contemplate the concept of a gang banger with ovaries since you know, it was never portrayed in the video games they used to blow their egos and their out look on reality....

There are 4'9 high school girls out there who would have most of the users on this board wetting their pants if they ever encountered them.


LOL I grew up in the s*** areas of town and yes there are some women who are "tough" but I can promise you that they are nowhere near as badass as some of the ghetto dudes. They might be able to beat up the white boys but LOL give them a badass guy to beat and I'll tell you who wins. You watch too many movies of badass chicks showing off their "girl power".

Good job at ignoring the key points in my previous post.

lol sure you have. Sounds like you just grew up in an area full of wannabe thugs who try to be intimidating by starting fist fights with people who dirtied up their white airforces.
Tell me, what gangs were these "Ghetto dudes" running with?

Oh and one more thing before I leave. The badass chicks? They usually are the ugly big ones. Not the little tiny sexy ones.

The "gangs" were unimportant since they kept falling apart but I can tell you this. I know more people from my high school who are in prison than who are out.

look at voilent crime statistics and see how many of the perpetrators are females. Very few. It just wouldn't be believable in this type of role. If there was a female protagonist she'd probably be really manly, like snoop from the wire. No thanks.

So do I, but I live in a friggen suburb, being an idiot and getting arrested doesn't make someone a 'ganster' or badass.
