image for Yannick LeJacq has Rocky as a critic

While writing his article on video games technologies, Yannick LeJacq sounded like a dreaded bully and a best friend at the same time.

Sylvester Stallone, also known as Rocky, was pissed off by Yannick's lack of sympathy.

"I was reading an article about my favorite video game 'Warface' when the writer used vile and harsh language to depict my favorite video game," said Stallone, slightly rubbing his nose with his fist.

The disturbing article was written by Yannick LeJacq, a spirited Frenchman, who does work as a technology reporter.

These are two hostile paragraphs written by LeJacq:

"Sexualized portrayals of female characters in video games have always been controversial, as the backlash against Crytek's salacious representations of female soldiers in "Warface" showed this month.

This is the latest example of a common trend of treating female video game characters differently than their male counterparts - relegating women to derogatory supporting roles, giving them inhumanly exaggerated bodily proportions, and generally casting them as little more than sexual objects."

LeJacq's article "Video games' sexual double standards," has upset many people besides Stallone and his article is being hosted on a major news page.

Sylvester Stallone decided to be the first person to come out and challenge LeJacq's argument over females being portrayed as objects. He states that his movie character "Rocky," was also a sex object covered in masculine sweat and body grease.

"I felt that women were looking at my film and they were thinking the wrong things about my body and I saw my character as naked, only wearing boxer briefs with a pair of boots," said Stallone.

He points out that women have breast and men don't, so it's natural that a female video game character on 'Warface,' would have breast.

On many video games, like in "Rambo: The Video Game" by Rear Entertainment, male video game characters sometimes don't have shirts and other times their shirts are torn showing their arms and parts of their chest. They also have torn pants exposing portions of their legs.

Their muscles and size are sometimes over exaggerated making them look too sexy. Nobody complains about the derogatory supporting roles given to those male video game characters.

"It appears there is discrimination against male video game characters since their issues are never addressed," said Stallone.

Make Evil's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)
