Feminists have been saying that The Legend of Zelda series is sexist which when looked at is laughable and they also wrongly accuse Link's main objective is "always" to save the princess. Im going debunk the "sexist" thing using the Hero of Time timeline; if I went into every game it would take too long. I will attempt to keep it short enough for the people that get bored easy.
the first thing the three goddesses Din Nayru Farore created everything " Before time began, before spirits and life existed... Three golden goddesses descended upon the chaos that was Hyrule... Din, the goddess of power... Nayru, the goddess of wisdom... Farore, the goddess of courage... Din... With her strong flaming arms, she cultivated the land and created the red earth. Nayru... Poured her wisdom onto the earth and gave the spirit of law to the world. Farore... With her rich soul, produced all life forms who would uphold the law. The three great goddesses, their labors completed, departed for the heavens. And golden sacred triangles remained at the point where the goddesses left the world. Since then, the sacred triangles have become the basis of our world's providence. And, the resting place of the triangles has become the Sacred Realm" -Deku Tree.
Three women creating everything. The goddesses gave the triforce to the goddess Hylia to keep safe until she and the humans were attacked by an army. She saved the humans by defying gravity and sending land with all the humans on it into the sky where it floated. She and her army sealed the former army's leader demon king Demise in the sealed grounds. She selflessly relinquished her immortality and powers as a goddess to be reborn in Skyloft where Impa was entrusted to care for her reincarnation and all reincarnations who are Zelda(s). Even though Zelda is the reincarnation of of a goddess she is still mortal and is usually, as in skyward sword, awakened to her past and as a mortal goddess (and the holder of the triforce of wisdom) cannot afford to do anything risky whereas Link (the holder of the triforce of courage) cannot help but do what is risky. Link the first holder of the Goddess Sword and it's physical manifestation Fi who provides Link with wisdom and information much needed to progress and defense from the watchers she is just as instrumental as link is, they both work in unison. The Goddess' sword is improved using the flames of the goddesses imbuing the sword with the power of the goddesses, the instrument that is key to many games' plot and key to Link's quests. After they finish their first quest Fi gives her consciousness so the Hero Of Time may use the Goddess' power in the Master sword again to save everyone. The sword is again drawn by the reincarnation of Link who was raised by the kokiri who's main objective from the beginning was not to save Zelda but to kill "the wicked man of the desert" before he enslaves hyrule which he does, Also Zelda escapes and helps link along on his quest secretly since being found is not an option not without the power of both the sages and the three goddeses; with the power of the goddesses' frees the sages power that were bound by the temples the seal must be broken to awaken the sage(excluding two) the sages are: Princess Zelda, Leader of the Sages(she did not need to be awakened and has no medalian associated with her) Rauru, Sage of Light (second exception he did not need to be awakened) Saria, Sage of Forest, Darunia, Sage of Fire, Princess Ruto, Sage of Water, Impa, Sage of Shadow, Nabooru, Sage of Spirit. Most of which are women.
Link would go nowhere without the women that always help. In-fact without the women that world wouldn't have existed.
[end notes]I kept this short, also sorry about the punctuation grammar nazis. This is just quickly and shortly debunking "sexism" in the Legend Of Zelda world not videogames in general.
