Study finds that sexualization of female characters in video games does not harm gamers
A recent study published in Computers in Human Bevior argues that the sexualization of characters in video games does not harm gamers. The results show that even playing with overly sexual heroines does not lead to the formation of misogynistic attitudes or harmful consequences for the psyche.
Many believe that attractive heroines in games can make male players sexist, and gamers are made to envy virtual beauties.
A team of researchers led by psychology professor Christopher J. Ferguson of Stetson University reviewed 18 previous studies on the subject and concluded that this was not the case. No connection was found between video games and sexist attitudes or psychological comfort.
In studies, participants played sexualized video games and were then measured for levels of aggression towards women, as well as levels of anxiety and depression. The researchers did not find any relationship between these phenomena.
Ferguson explained that there are many myths in society about the impact of video games on people, but very few facts that would confirm this.
