Stop linking to that crap.

In fact, stop going to those websites, period. They're useless.

Isn't there a woman "playing" the game in the trailer?

I'm offended that there was a woman on the SWAT team. That's completely unrealistic and breaks my immersion.

Calm down, women being something to rescue has been in media for forever. You act like this is a new trend. Put men in a situation where violence is the only solution and the reward is acknowledgment from the woman == nothing new. Just as long as it has good graphics, everything is fine.

Just because it's "nothing new" doesn't mean it's okay. This has indeed been a problem in games for a long, long time, where "rescue the helpless woman" is all the plot the game has, playing into an annoying and uncreative male power fantasy. We're at a point where we really should be past that, in games and in general.

Though in this case, I really don't see anything wrong with it, and I daresay the article is just clickbait. At first I thought it'd say something like "No female playable characters" or something, which would have annoyed me (I always had that lady from Israel as my squad leader in the first two R6 games, seemed more interesting than like, Ding Chavez). Here, it's just rescuing a female hostage. There will be other hostages, and there could be playable female characters in multiplayer. Not a big deal.

I'd consider it more of a problem when people look for excuses to be offended than it is to have yet another stereotypical yet for all intents harmless throwaway storyline. Eventually, if you want actual equality you have to stop pointing out how unequal you are at every last minor provocation.

Some roads you shouldn't go down because maps used to say there'd be dragons there. Now they don't, but that don't mean the dragons aren't there.
