    With so many games releasing every day, it can be surprising to see what titles manage to find a large audience. Take, for example, Escape From Tarkov. The PC shooter recently found a massive audience thanks to Twitch, but the increased focus has resulted in some increased scrutiny, as well. The title's open beta released in 2015, and since then, developer Battlestate Games has participated in a number of interviews. In a 2016 interview with WCC Tech, Pavel Dyatlov of Battlestate Games was asked why the game only allows for male playable characters, to which the developer had a rather surprising answer.

    "...we discussed it for a very long time, but we came to the conclusion that women can't handle that amount of stress. There's only place for hardened men in this place."

    What an idiot.
    Plenty of examples of women who can handle war, in this country alone over the last couple of centuries.

    This is a seriously wrong thing to say out loud.

    to be fair, while i don't consider the statement remotely true for justifying the reason for not including it...

    In the context of war, majority of women generally can't take it... a good portion of men can't handle it either. There are a hell of a lot of accumulated data points in which tend to coincide with the overall demographic. Just like only a small percentage of women are able to go physically/mentally with the majority of men, a similar percentage tend to be able to handle obviously those things as well. The "tom girl/tom boy" profiling isn't inaccurate.

    So while in the "majority" of cases, the statement is usually quite likely more true than false.... the decisive statement that in general overall that it is, would be wrong.
