For Her Pleasure: An Egalitarian Approach to Pornographic Videogames

An acquaintance of mine recently put together a list of games hacked to have playable female characters in response to this article about the erasure of female game developers hacking games to have female heroes in reporting of stories about fathers doing so for their daughters.

 Miss Rowgoo had to go the vet Thursday, but she is feeling better now, despite this grumpy look she is giving me.  Stretchy cat!
 Had my buttermilk ranch dressing all prepared in advance, but then the CDC was like, "hey, there's an e. coli outbreak in romaine lettuce" so no salad this year. Had Simon pick me up a last minute substitution 'cause the whole point of the salad is that you can't just drink ranch dressing straight and have diginity at the same time. Y'all like my DIY chip 'n dip?  Lush has a Bubble Bar that looks like Rogue.
