For the Gentleman who Doesn't Care about Women Gamers
Becky Chambers at The Mary Sue has written another strong and smart post about the attitude of certain men toward women in gaming. In the same way that Friday Night Lights isn't really about football, Becky's post isn't really about gaming. One point she made is,
I could ask you to imagine that you have a daughter (maybe you already do, though I kind of doubt it). Presumably, as a parent, you’d like to share your favorite activities with your progeny. Which games of yours would you be comfortable with handing over to her? Are you going to be okay with the armor sets she has to wear? Are you savvy enough to avoid the dearth of loathsome “games for girls” that are going to be marketed towards her?
