An awful week to care about video games

What an awful week for the culture that surrounds and influences video games.

That’s putting it very mildly. The people responsible for all of this – like the people who threatened a critic of the portrayal of women in games with physical/sexual violence – should be sent to jail. Especially the ‘Kevin Dobson’ character should probably be locked up in a mental institution for life.

Especially the treatment of women in the gaming industry – whether on-screen or off-screen – is absolutely horrible. As an n=1 social experiment, I often pretend to be female in my League of Legends matches, and the kind of shit you get thrown at you when you do so is disgusting.

I can shake it off because I’m actually not female – but I shudder at the thought of not being able to do so.
