Abstract

The purpose of this research is to analyze the portrayal of Lara Croft character in Tomb Raider video game developed by Crystal Dynamics. Lara is biologically a woman but she is seen as more masculine than feminine. As a woman, she can do what men usually do. Therefore, there are two problems in this research, (1) How aspects of femininity of Lara Croft are portrayed in Tomb Raider, (2) How aspects of female masculinity of Lara Croft are portrayed in Tomb Raider. To analyze the data, the writer uses female masculinity theory from Judith Halberstam (1998). Female masculinity has been produced by female bodies. It means not all masculine people identify as men. Women can also have attributes of masculinity. This research used qualitative method to analyze the data. The data are the conversation from the screenshot images taken from Tomb Raider game. The steps of collecting data are: 1) The writer bought Tomb Raider game from the steam store. 2) The writer got the data by pressing screenshot button (Ctrl + V + Print Screen SysRq) in keyboard while playing the game. 3) The writer selected any word in the screenshot images that contain the conversation in the game that portrayed the aspects of femininity and female masculinity of Lara Croft in Tomb Raider. The writer found three aspects of femininity of Lara Croft, they are motherhood, emotional and dependent on men. Other than that, the writer also found four aspects of female masculinity of Lara Croft, they are self-confident, dominant, rational, and brave. As the result, the writer can conclude that masculinities are not just about men. Masculinity is related to gender and since gender can be exchanged, it means the term “masculinity can also be found in women’s bodies.
