No Mercy.

/No Mercy.

I recognize that some characters are easier to pick up than others but I don’t consider that a bad thing. You can play Mercy in competitive without spending 20 hours with her in quick play and do well. Same with Soldier 76 honestly and he isn’t considered a no-skill character. I don’t know, “skill” just seems to be a word that gets thrown around to enforce some characters as being better than others based only on what makes men comfortable. They depend on Mercy and discredit her at the same time.

Toxic masculinity is using teamwork to win then immediately turning around and declaring you didn’t need anyone else’s help. Misogyny is when all the people you’re kicking off the podium just-so-happen to be the women (or the people in roles perceived to be feminine).
