I was browsing the nintendo store and was kind of saddened to see that they are dividing their gift ideas by gender.
So out of curiosity I decided to see what they were marketing to me, as a woman. Is it just going to be cutesy games like nintendogs or something?
The signs are not good. Is this going to be a ‘men play consoles women play handhelds’ stereotype or something? Lets scroll down…
Huh. Well Pokemon is the next big handheld release. So lets see what they’re marketing to men?
…the same thing…?
…literally the exact same thing.
They posted the same page twice, and just changed the pronouns in the captions.
Nintendo doesn’t care what gender you are.
They just really, really want you to buy Pokemon.
