Nick re "
Misogyny"

One thing on your site struck me as having a surprising lack of supporting points. In your article on "Misogyny in gaming" you state:

"Since this hypothetical culture's interpretation is as valid as ours, we conclude that there's nothing inherently or essentially misogynistic about the two fictional monsters."

Without giving any reasons that this cultures interpretation is as valid as ours. I don't think that's necessarily something that can be taken as a given. Culturally indoctrinated genocide, for example, is certainly not an equally valid choice. Other examples are the genital mutilation espoused by several cultures and the massive overconsumption of resources espoused by American culture.
