    Why does feminism view video games as "bad" but not porn?

    This is something I have tried to figure out myself and I just can't. I always hear about feminists complaining about oversexualizing female characters in video games but they seldom talk about porn being a problem. The porn industry is VERY abusive to women (and men) and often times people get very mistreated. They are honestly just treated like objects. It not only harms the people involved but there are very real negative effects for men who watch too much of it which in turn can cause them to treat women very poorly.

    How is a virtual female character who isn't even real valued more than women trapped in that industry?

    A virtual woman isn't getting money for being hot & is usually (at least in the past, idk about game dev office demographics nowadays) created by a bunch of guys to be fap fuel. A pornstar/camgirl/instagram hoe/snapchat THOT is a real human making money. I think diehard feminists are having trouble with the moral quandary of going after a real woman and her money, which is ironic because she's getting paid for doing something they likely disagree with. They'll set aside their convictions just to support women, even if it is contradictory.

    A woman in a game has a nice ass or some generous anime tiddies? RACIST BIGOT HOMOPHOBE SEXIST PIGS
    A woman in real life has 75 guys decorate her face with baby gravy for men's enjoyment? STRONG EMPOWERED INDEPENDENT

    I support people having any opinion they want to have, but it needs to be consistent if you're going to attack people over it. Modern feminists are anything but consistent.

    But you know, there is feminist porn, believe it or not. Not that I'm about to allow trading porn links, but I'm just saying that feminists have tried to politicise pornography. Hell, SJWs will politicise anything so it complies with their agenda. I always find it funny when I see feminists having flame wars with escorts online. (Not sure how that would go down offline.) Feminists are mad at women for having freedom to express themselves with their bodies? I'm not talking about sex slaves which is obviously an issue. There are prostitutes (or sex workers as they prefer to be called) who are happy to do what they do, contrary to popular belief.

    I got into a debate with some SJW about this. He got really furious and vitriolic, stating that it is impossible that any woman could be positive about it, that if they say they are they're lying, and that prostitution solely exists to serve the patriarchy. A real character, he was. It's kind of ironic how feminists (be it men or women) get so mad over women living independently, self-employed, and likely literally having men grovelling and begging them to whip their asses... and earning a pretty penny from it! I just don't get it. (Not talking about BDSM, but I don't get that either.)

    So yeah, back to the main point, feminists actually do view porn as terrible fairly often. It varies from feminist to feminist, but it is very much a thing. More feminists (or SJWs in general) are mad at video games because video games are an easy target. Like Zem said, women in video games themselves are virtual. On the other hand, a lot of SJW women are conflicted about prostitution because it's reality and they're infighting. (Ever watched SJWs destroying each other online? It's top-class entertainment.)

    I think that the sex-negative feminists' disdain for porn and women exercising sexual autonomy is to some degree motivated by a shallow jealousy. Woman A is more attractive than Woman B, ergo Women A is bad. A "she can't be prettier than me" mentality like what you'd see between cliques of girls in a high-school drama.
