Episode 62 – Damsel in Distress Discussion

Happy Easter everyone! Today we talk about the “damsel in distress” role in video games! It’s a common trope used in video games today, women are seen as frail and weak, and always have to be kidnapped! But today, The Lost Levels take a look at some of these tropes and get into why they aren’t fair or can be a false portrayal of women as a gender! We also talk a little bit about Easter! SpiderStaryu hosts with co-hosts Dark Boo and Toadette!

This podcast’s idea was inspired by pop culture analysis and feminist “Anita Sarkeesian” and her YouTube videos on, “feministfrequency“, as she recently made a video talking about this matter. If you want to go check out her popular video  discussing tropes vs women with the “damsel in distress” role, you can watch the video target=”_blank”>here.
