The Representation Project presents a look at how women in the media were treated this year - some high points, yes, but a whole lotta lows. I don’t agree with everything spotlighted as a negative, but overall, it’s a lot to think about.

To spin it in a positive way - I think recently of Steven Universe, with its three diverse female protagonists; Bee and Puppycat, which raised hundreds of thousands; Wendy Davis’ valiant fight for reproductive rights and its international coverage; Catching Fire and Frozen, which did incredibly well at the box office and feature awesome stories of girls rescuing themselves and each other. What were your favourite high points for women in pop culture this year?

Don’t trust the media,.. look further :(

A tough Wyoming cowboy who just happens to like blouses

Sissy Goodwin isn’t gay; he’s been married for 45 years and has two adult children. As a young man, he was a rodeo cowboy who rode bulls bareback, a free spirit who never shied away from a fistfight. The former aircraft mechanic loves to drink beer, play golf, throw steaks on the grill.

What sets him apart, he says, is what he calls gender independence: He just likes to do most things in a dress.

A resilient guy living it out in Wyoming, a state he refers to as “the Mississippi of the West” for its disposition toward him, Goodwin has been beaten, arrested and glared at for years - but he continues his defiant dressing habits to this day.

This is the third installment in our three part mini-series exploring the Damsel in Distress trope in video games. In this episode we examine the rare Dude in Distress role reversal and then take a look at the use of “ironic sexism” in retro inspired indie and mobile games. We conclude with an investigation of some titles that attempt to subvert or deconstruct the traditional damsel narrative.
