Skip to comments.Feminists cry foul over Fat Princess
Posted on 07/29/2008 7:32:20 AM PDT by dead
She's plump, powerful and ready to cause more controversy than "SuperSize Me."
She's Fat Princess, the star of Sony's upcoming video game of the same name. Debuting at last week's E3 expo, the colorful Fat Princess is a capture-the-flag game with a twist: you can thwart capture attempts by locking the once-thin princess in a dungeon and stuffing her full of cake, thereby increasing her girth and making her harder for your enemies to haul back to home base.
According to popular gaming blog Joystiq, two feminist gaming sites have already voiced their displeasure with the weighty issue.
Feminist Gamer's "Mighty Ponygirl" rings in diplomatically, suggesting a new way to play the game altogether.
"Instead of running out into the forest to find cake to fatten up the princess with, why not go out and find gold (which is a lot heavier than cake) to stuff into a treasure chest. The more gold in the chest, the heavier it would be, and the harder it would be to carry," she said, before adding, "Oh, but that's not as "cute" as cake and fat chicks. Right."
Over at Shakesville, however, writer Melissa McEwan cuts to the chase, telling Sony she's "positively thrilled to see such unyielding dedication to creating a new generation of fat-hating, heteronormative ---holes."

Feminist Gamer's "Mighty Ponygirl" rings in diplomatically
Feminist gamer. Theres a title for you. Living in your parents basement, with pimples and no dates is typically a male dominated profession, so she struggles.
unyielding dedication to creating a new generation of fat-hating, heteronormative ---holes
I dont even know what the hell heteronormative is, but I hope I qualify! I got five bucks that says the angry homonormative feminist is fat as a house.
Feminists hate it = fun game for normal people with a sense of humor
Even though the game sounds dumb and not like its that much fun to play the concept is hilarious!
Tough luck feminists; it’ll either sell or it won’t. The market will decide.
femi-nazis complain when sports illustrated comes out with the bathing suit issue, cause ‘real woman’ dont look like that...and then a vid game, which is probably closer to what a lot of out of shape woman do look like, well, that’s bad too..
kiss my ass.
Looks normal from viewing the streets. I have never seen so many overweight humans (both male and female) than now. It must be that they have no money for food.
I'll tell you exactly what it is:
heteronormative - a word, which when used in context in any paper in any socially oriented college class, will get you an "A".
Isaiah 3:12 Youths oppress my people, women rule over them.
The bible includes “feminists” in the same context as rebellious children. Humans who “shake their fists at God” over the role that they were created in.
(Seriously -- "heteronormative" is the idea that normal relationships involve one man and =one woman, as opposed to gay relationships, polyamorous relationships, real dolls or farm animals.)
Hey! I thought that was the definition of "cryptofacist!"
Wimmin Are Evil....here we go again.
you mean skanksville?,what a bunch of hypersentive uptight twits
Back in the early 1990’s, I worked in a video game arcade. A couple of busybody feminists came in with stickers that read “This product supports violence against women”. They managed to tag about 20 machines before the manager caught them and gave them the boot after arguing about the violent content of the games.
Among the games they tagged was Ms. Pac Man, NBA Jam, and the Jokerz pinball machine. After the manager and I removed the stickers (they had a tremendously strong adhesive), we had a good laugh about their mental condition.
This story has nothing to do with the article, but feminists behaving insanely about video games triggered that memory.
The search engine must be heteronormative.
If they have a problem with it, don’t buy it.
Get yourselves a Wii Fit Ladies. Most feminists I know could really use it.
Nothing better than stepping on the Wii board in the mornings and having it announce “That’s Obese!” Really cheers one up in the mornings!
And yes I am addicted to the step aerobics. My kids won’t play that because I rule the leader board.
(If anyone knows how to clear the leader board, I’d appreciate a hint)
Naw, just '60s type radical feminists. ;^)
Let them eat cake!
ha ha ha.....I am a blonde, don’t try to woo me with math big boy...*wink*
Not much going on in the rest of these ... "ladies" lives, is there??
As Barbie so famously said - “Math is Hard!”
>> I dont even know what the hell heteronormative is, but I hope I qualify!
I spend a good bit of time reading feminist blogs (what can I say? They amuse me.) It truly is an educational experience. For starters, I’d suggest feministing.com, iblamethepatriarchy.com, womensspace.org ... funny stuff.
“Heteronormative” is a pejorative word invented by radical feminists and homosexual activists to criticize people whose statements or actions show that they assume that heterosexuality is the normal state of mankind. It truly is a nonsensical concept — as heterosexuality truly is the normal state of being, and homosexuality truly is an outlier (a simple statistical study shows this definitively).
But, they subscribe to a philosophy which insists that normal sexuality is not bifurcated, but a spectrum ranging from the strictly heterosexual to the strictly homosexual — and that most of humanity falls somewhere in between. There is absolutely no evidence of this — but, since when has evidence ever been a hangup for radical feminists?
Perhaps they suffer from “homonormativity”.
HA HA HA HA HA!
Ok, strictly speaking, only evil wimmin are evil.
If it is any consolation, there are evil men, too. I personally know a man who is the embodiment of evil. I know of no redemptive act he has ever performed. To put him into context, he once (that I know of, perhaps more than once) killed a litter of kittens by freezing them to death in a coffee can in a freezer.
Rush featured an NPR Story last Thursday which showed two women who were complaining that a poor economy and high gas prices had forced them to stop purchasing meat.
I think this game sounds hilarious. But what do I know, I’m not a gamer.
About all I ever do is sing at my friends’ house when they play Rock Band. :)
Stupid feminazi cows. Shut up and go braid your armpit hair like a good Bohemian Socialist.
I keep it in the context of those who write the rules always write them in their own favor and always claiming it to be the holy truth.
I want to comment on that pic, but that would be like bobbing for turduckens in a washtub full of mashed potatoes right after Christmas dinner.
They’re outraged... that’s so cute!
Perhaps they suffer from homonormativity.
Or perhaps just pervonormativity, as homosexuality is probably not the only sexual deviancy they endorse.
>> I want to comment on that pic, but that would be like bobbing for turduckens in a washtub full of mashed potatoes right after Christmas dinner.
The look on Rush’s face says it all.
Yeah, I understand - people these days know better than God. I see it all the time.
Tell me, how can someone write, in detail, about an event that was to occur hundreds or thousands of years from the time of the writing? Perhaps it wasn’t “written by a man”?
(Both the dating of the writing and the event written about are historically verified with more supporting evidence than most other “historical facts” that people accept, so don’t go there.)
Isaiah 53 and Psalm 22 are just some examples.
By the way - how is society “progressing” since you folks figured out you’re smarter than God?
I see most of the negative social indicators increasing exponentially since around 1963...
Au contraire, Biker Chick. (BTW, you got a kick-ass name!) 'Wimmin' are not evil. (I happen to hold a deep and fond regard for them myself... with one, ahem, in particular (are your reading this, honey?).
It is 'wimmin' who hate what God has created them to be (and which men need in order to be complete according to His plan)- and thus who hate God- who are evil. And sadly also, their rebellion makes them supremely ugly to the core.
Giving David Beckham a run for his money????? Actually it is a refreshing change to see a real man pose, instead of the usual parade of fake booby-half-naked, white and asian-skinny starlets that are usually posted. I am so sick of seeing, the anime-looking-plastic surgery altered models. A shout-out for me and the women of America who have arses like Jennifer Lopez, and do not look like a surfboard front and back./Just Asking - seoul62.......
Mmmmmm...David Beckham!! As long as he keeps his mouth shut, anyway.
I’m not a fan of the beer belly on a man. Yet these seem to be the VERY same men who yell the loudest about their distaste for “normal sized” (read: size 10, size 12, size 16 vs. size 2) women. And it seems that around here, so many threads end up with pics of either Helen Thomas or some Penthouse Pet in them.
“Im not a fan of the beer belly on a man”
Sigh. I meant, I’m not a big fan of a big beer belly on a man - as in a huge sloppy beer gut. A regular belly on a man is fine within reason. Just wanted to make myself clear here. ;)
Two other notable cuties: Don Draper/Mad Men and the Actor who portrays the lead in the series: Burn Notice - very, very nice. I see beauty in every man: from the beer belly’s of the Larry-Cable Guy Types to the Ultimate Metro-Sexual - David Beckham, as long as their personality is engaging, that is instant charmer for me./Just Asking - seoul62......
hubba hubba about both of them. Veddy nice!
Your welcome. Yes their poses could compete with the usual parade of fake booby-bikini babes that are usually paraded on this forum./Just Asking - seoul62.......
I never said I was smarter than God, just I can see through the smoke and mirrors of those who say they speak for him, that’s all.
As for things getting worse, why wow....
As those who were told to sit on the back of the bus which decade they’d rather live in.
Me? These are far far better days than anything pre-1960 for most of us ‘lower’ beings ;)
