    I've certainly heard of it though I no longer consider myself a feminist.

    This is the phenomenon where feminists complain about video games catering to masculine fantasies, over-sexualiing over simplifying female characters etc.

    And then the push back from female gamers who love them and hate many of the games produced with feminist "guidance".

    And then push back from feminists who say these female gamers are clueless, disloyal and otherwise icky.

    And the female gamers laughing and getting on with their lives.

    Source(s): WAS a feminist until about 4 years ago. I like video games. No, I don't wear a black corset nor do I care if Lara Croft is a good role model. If I was ever offended, I play a different video game
