sexism in gaming
If you’ve been on the internet, you’ve seen the work of a keyboard warrior. Being insensitive is the main ammunition of the typical keyboard warrior - with terms like 'rape' even part of gamer parlance. But one that is frequently overseen is the harassment of women in gaming and the games industry alike.
Gaming is full of idiots. Yes, all gamers are dumb in their own special way. We’re all products of all-too-passionate competition with faceless others over the internet, fearsome loyalty to duller-by-the-sequel franchises and crude immaturity. A manifestation of this is the disgusting use of the word ‘rape’ in online gaming.
