No skin thick enough: The daily harassment of women in the game industry

This article is heartbreaking. And true.

There is a reason I throttled back on doing a lot of creative gaming content a few years ago. And why I still avoid taking some jobs in the gaming world when they’re offered to me. And why, when we have a female host on any of our Geek and Sundry gaming shows, we have to monitor the comments on YouTube extra, to remove the many comments that are offensive and pollute our community’s spirit of equality. Because I hate that shit. 

There is an endemic acceptance in the gamer world that “well, it comes with the territory” when a woman receives threats and harassment and the hateful anonymous internet dialogue is focused on her body and whether they would “do” her or not. I don’t know why this became okay. It’s a vocal minority that has been given way too much power over the industry dialogue, and I am so happy to see more and more articles like this shining the light on what reasonable gamer men and women have been conned into accepting as a given.

NOTHING is a given in this world. And frankly, it taints the art form we so love and keeps it back from becoming more respected and more diverse to not at least TRY to fight it. Gaming deserves more than complacency in this area.

Even posting this link will cause me to receive hateful Tumblr PMs. I can always tell when something I write gets linked on certain places on the internet (like 4 Chan or a few other forums of troll-hood), because I’ll immediately get dozens of hate mails along the veins of what is posted in this article. 

Well, I’m a lucky one to be prominent enough to have 10 supporters for every hater. I mostly feel sorry for girls and women who aren’t in my position, who may just give up on gaming when they’re too beaten down to fight anymore.

We have to change that. For the good of what we love doing, gamers! Okay, back to work :)

This is infuriating.  Where do these haters get this idea?  If they’re so offended by female players and female creators and female writers, perhaps they should found their own hater wank universe, where they’ll be happy.  Surely it should be sinking through their brain-swamps that women aren’t going away.

They are cowards.  Gutless, whining playground bullies who still think that girls have cooties, who have never learned to share their toys, who yap at the ears of their betters without one whit of understanding what it is like to live in their shoes.  Forced to live as women for so much as a week, they would wet their pants and whine for their daddies, only to find themselves thrust away by their father-phalluses, dismissed for the crime of being a guuuuurrrrl.  Heckled on the street, fondled on the bus, ignored in a meeting, they would collapse, unable to find the courage women have to find to get through a work week.  Why?  Because they never learned courage in their own forms.  They thought it came with their dicks.

Oh, dear.  I was away for a moment.  I’m back now.

i think we all have that one piece of media we like that’s basically “i love this thing, but i dont think everyone should watch this thing and would not categorically recommend it to other people i know, this thing has a lot of problems and i am the first person you should ask if you want to know a long list of criticisms, but i REALLY ENJOY THIS THING” its like holding up a can of trash to everyone else and saying ”you are a reasonable person and you would not enjoy touching this garbage and i value that about you” and then pouring it out on the ground and rolling around in it yourself
