the female player always has to show more skin than the male
the main villain is always a male
only the male main character is ever acknowledged
the cartoon is always focused around a female character being ash's sidekick

Cynthia is the only female to escape this. that anita chick has really got me noticing this stuff in the games.

no i mean on promotional material or sequels. like the video for BW2, it only focused on the male, the female got a quick extra scene

and how even with the remakes, only Red exists, not the female trainer

i like the games but most of the women are just treated like this

Because you like to take non-issues and make a big fuss about them in order to seem like you're such a "foreward thinking morally superior person" ;)

Shut up. The OP doesn't sound angry at all. He/she is just asking a question. Grow up.

Because gamefreak likes to read the posts of boys trying to act like a female and complain about a video game over life
Looking forward on ditching pokemon B & W for X & Y.

Why would you ever listen to her? Her videos are filled with nothing but buzzword stuffed drivel.
