Haven't heard of the controversy at all, nor the video poster. The topic, however, came up in a discussion I was reading about the final single-player Mass Effect 3 DLC released three days ago. Some feminists were OUTRAGED that as part of a mission, their female character had to wear a dress to go undercover. "A dress!?" They cried, "How sexist! My Shepard is an ***-kicking biotic who takes crap from no one! How DARE they make her wear a dress! Does this mean even in 200 years woman are pigeon-holed into sexist clothing?"
I read the comments with astonishment. Not only is the mission about being undercover, Fem-Shepard even snidely remarks on how dumb it is to wear a dress, but she does so for the sake of the mission. If you play a Renegade Shepard that's pretty much her entire persona: snark, but does whatever it takes for the mission. Is this really what you're getting offended about? There's sexism in games, no doubt. But sometimes I feel like folks just want to be offended. The reverse of that situation was when heterosexual men were freaking out that in ME3, a male Shepard has several *** pairings possible, and they felt like it was forcing homosexuality into their game. What the **** folks, calm down. Don't want a *** Shepard? Romance one of the females. Sheesh.
TL;DR While there is some legitimate cause for concern, a lot of times people are looking to be offended and get off on getting angry.
