Not just the Tomb Raider bit, but the Hitman trailer with the sexy nuns, as well as Anita Sarkeesian trying to do a video series on sexism in video games and getting harrassed by a small group of defensive people. It has sort of been a perfect storm of sexism just recently.
And I don't know... maybe we needed that before things can finally change.

i know it's so hard being a straight white cisgendered male these days what with like almost everything ever being catered to you these days and all the many many days and months and years and centuries before that
let me tell you personally, as a black woman, in response to you feeling bad for being a straight while male: welcome to the club. but at least you just get to kind of feel bad and not idk feel like a worthless thing, not even a human being, that has to constantly worry if someone's going to hurt them because they're not straight/white/cisgendered/male.
and even then you still don't have much to whine about because again most games these days are still catered to you, so the few games that try to appeal to a broader audience is in no way a threat to you, nor are they out to make you "feel bad". They're trying to make other people feel included. But I guess that's a horrible threat to straight white guys they're the only ones who deserve to feel included so whatevs.
