So um, I think the reason so many protagonists are male is because men have always been in the front line in combat, and that's because it's been proven that (not being sexist) that men are defaultly physically superior... I say again that I'm just saying that from a scientific/medical standpoint... If I sound like a dumbass I'm sorry I just woke up and I saw ur account and saw the earlier post about this and wanted to give my thoughts on this

"Do you believe that my being faster, stronger has anything to do with muscles in this place?"

Video games are entirely abstract constructs, created solely from the rules of our own making. We try to model the game rules after real ones in some amount of similarity, but things like muscular development, or traditional front-line combat fighters mean almost nothing when you’re talking about a fantasy or science fiction world that can choose which laws of physics it wishes to adhere to. There’s really only one reason why the default protagonist in video games is a middle-aged white man - the developers and publishers choose it to be so.

The caption choice for this response was sublime and I felt compelled to share it
