    WOuldn't the Companion Cube more symbolize how a man comes to have no depth outside of being friends with the woman, and she uses him to reach goals that she would have no way of reaching without his help, and is then encouraged by another female (representing the feminist movement) to destroy him, despite how much she relied on him before and the fact that he's done nothing to her? In all seriousness though, i think this is a good article. Normally this would fall under over-analyzation, but in the end I think Portal is a very strange game, and analyzing it is a good thing.

    It scares me. How easily feminist rants, reminiscent of Fox News, are so easily accepted within the gaming world. Men are evil; it's a proven fact. Whenever they play a game with a female character, it is because they feel the need to control women, out of their cowardice towards the opposite sex. Women, however, always have much more benevolent intentions; to play a game with a male character is to feel equal to the gender that has persecuted and belittled them for centuries. There is nothing a man can do to right his wrongs. He must be destroyed, and women must be freed from their bonds. Sometimes, you just can't please people. Why bother...

    Dude, I think you're taking Portal too literally and too seriously. Can't we just say it's a great game and leave it at that?
