‘Battlefield V’ Embraces Social Justice Revisionism, Bombs Miserably

Published

on

One of this year’s most discussed World War II first-person shooting games, Electronic Arts’ Battlefield V, now appears to be destined towards commercial failure after its developers chose to include a theme of social-justice related historical revisionism in the game’s content.

Fans of the historically themed first-person shooter Battlefield series reacted with disapproval when the initial trailer for the new game was released. Many were given the impression that the series had abandoned any pretense of historical realism with the bizarre trailer was seen, featuring anachronistic elements such as prosthetic limbs and women as frontline combat soldiers.

Certainly, many women served in various militaries in World War II. But Battlefield V‘s depiction of women as frontline combat personnel has raised accusations of whitewashing history to fit a politically correct narrative, lacking resemblance to reality. The backlash against Battlefield V‘s creative decision to prioritize a faux depiction of gender diversity was made clear by fans, who swarmed the trailer on YouTube with dislikes and negative comments.

The refusal of EA and DICE(Battlefield‘s developer) to listen to the concerns of their own consumer base became even more obvious when the latter seemed to passive-aggressively mock the historical objections at a launch party for the game, flashing quotes across a screen such as “Feminazies are trying to ruin Battlefield” and a monotonous display of “White men! White men! White men!”

Any pretense of historical realism was completely abandoned in an element of the game’s single player component, when the player plays as a female Norwegian resistance fighter in a real life sabotage operation which was undertaken by men, exclusively. The de facto writing out of the men who participated in a plot to cripple Germany’s nuclear development program raised accusations of blatant disrespect.

Another point critics raised in regards to Battlefield V’s absence of historical realism was the complete lack of any content featuring either the Soviet Union or the United States at the game’s launch.

It seems the negative response has extended to the commercial release of the game so far. EA has already offered Battlefield V for sale at a discounted price- a poor sign for a game released just last month. It’s being heavily outperformed in sales by its closest competitor, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and sources indicate that early sales of Battlefield V lag well behind those of its predecessor, the World War I-themed Battlefield 1.

HMM: Actress Rosario Dawson Comes Out as Lesbian Just One Month After She ‘Dated’ Cory Booker

Was she his beard?

Published

on

Actress Rosario Dawson has officially come out as lesbian, just a month after “dating” Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) during his dismal presidential campaign.

“People kept saying that I [came out]… I didn’t do that,” she said during a recent interview with Bustle. “I mean, it’s not inaccurate, but I never did come out come out. I mean, I guess I am now.”

Dawson claims she has only been in relationships with men up until this point, so she didn’t feel comfortable coming out of the closet officially until now.

“I’ve never had a relationship in that space, so it’s never felt like an authentic calling to me,” she said.

She said that her time with Booker forced her to be introspective and discover the truth about her sexuality, which made her comfortable about coming out as a lesbian.

“It’s the first time I felt like I had to be responsible about my choice of love, which is a challenging thing to do,” Dawson said. “If you fall in love, you fall in love. But there’s another aspect I had to consider: what this meant in [putting] a microscope on my family and particularly on my daughter.”

Just last month, Dawson was still keeping up the facade with Booker after he announced that he suspended his presidential campaign.

“Cory, you continue to inspire me everyday,” Dawson tweeted at Booker after he announced his campaign was finished. “On this journey you and your remarkable team have represented the best in us and I know you will continue to. Thank you. I see you. I love you.”

Dawson and Booker began their relationship in early 2019 conveniently before presidential primary season was scheduled to begin, which fueled rumors that Dawson was Booker’s “beard,” a slang term for a woman who poses as a phony girlfriend or wife for a closeted homosexual. She kept awkwardly professing her love for Booker as “beard” rumors were persisting wildly over the internet and social media.

“I’m in love! I am absolutely in love, and it is so exciting,” Dawson said of Booker last year.

“Look, both of us, you know, we’ve had relationships,” Booker said of his lesbian Hollywood girlfriend, “but I’m not sure if I’ve ever fully given myself over to a relationship as much as I have with her and allowed myself to be as vulnerable.”

“I mean, gosh, that night we talked for hours and hours,” he added. “I had trouble asking for her phone number… I think I said something really stupid like, ‘Uh, how would I get in touch with you?’ And she mercifully said something like, ‘Oh, you want my phone number?’ And my insides were like, ‘Hell, yeah!'”

Twitter users were not convinced by the show that the supposed lovers were putting on.

The fact that Dawson has come out as a lesbian, and presumably ended her reported relationship with Booker, shortly after the end of his presidential campaign will only add additional fuel to the rumors that have plagued Booker for decades.
