Florence And The Machine Dog Days Are Over
Very dumb idiot

So a cool thing happened. Like, a really cool thing. 

EA, which has put out FIFA as an expressly male game with male football league teams for 22 years, has finally made a big leap toward gender parity by introducing women into the game.  

For the first time ever, FIFA 16 will include female football play, outstripping competitors like Ubisoft who have previously claimed that female characters were too hard to animate and produce in gameplay. 

The trailer is unbelievably cool, shows behind the scenes looks at the development, and includes women from teams all over the world. You could almost say that a serious effort has been made on the part of EA to be inclusive of women's league play. 

And yet… 

Very dumb idiot

As with most cool things that sort of involve women, certain internet comedians are taking the news kind of hard. Thankfully, these comedians have their winning and unique sense of humour to keep them warm at night. 

This guy summed it all up in one succinct tweet

@Salmanh90 is right, guys. Women's is not good \: 


Watch the trailer for FIFA 16's women's national teams and try to forget the fact that women's is not good 


Have your say
