Kate Cox would like to a play video game where the character resembles her, for a change:
Everyone seems to understand, instinctively, that it's okay to have strong feelings about your Monopoly piece. From a young age, we got passionate about the dog, or the car, or the shoe (but never the iron), and that was all right. So why does similar passion about digital avatars create such a hue and cry? If you say you are tired of the slate of straight white men, you are a whiner. You do not understand that "sex sells." You are a troublemaker. You are a "feminist bitch" and worse.
