Today I simply wanted to leave any and all who read this blog and are passionate about gaming with the following video from Feminist Frequency’s “Playing with Privilege” series. The video is not to express that male gamers are free from harassment, but to push the fact that if and when such harassment is leveled upon them, it is not because of their gender. Sadly, for female gamers, the vicious cycle of abuse and harassment leveled upon them simply because they are women is all too real. While we are in the golden age of gaming, it also feels at times like we are in the dark ages of gaming culture. It is a cycle that many within the gaming community want to break, but due to some tragic outliers who monopolize the conversation, we are unable to press forward on the all too important issue of equality in gaming. This video contains some of the most well-respected male figures withing the gaming community coming together to reinforce the need for change, and I hope it is a message that will resonate with the majority of people out there who care about what we do and want it to be a safe environment for all to enjoy.
