If you play games online or post about games online and you’ve received misogynistic comments or sexual harassment for doing that, would you maybe want to participate in a video project I’m working on? We don’t have to be in the same city, etc. I can send you the information back channel. I would just need you to make a short video with a webcam (or iPad or phone or video camera or whatever).

Anyhow, if you might be interested, please drop me a line. A colleague and I are doing a thing, and we need a few more collaborators.

Anyone, please?

Y’all, I’m approaching 100% desperate for participants on this. So, please? Please please?

If this doesn’t apply to you, boost the signal! C’mon! Help an awesome person out with a project that sounds really cool! 

It didn’t occur to me until playing inFamous Second Son that the main character is actually Native American. Totally awesome!

are you ever a bit impressed by how completely wrong an argument manages to be

its really sad that some guys are actually like that

Yup.  That’s pretty much how it goes.

I love the “YOU’RE the REAL racist/sexist/transphobe/homophobe/etc” for criticizing how marginalized groups we’re a part of are portrayed by people like them (the dominant, privileged group in society who are the ones deciding how we’re “marked” in media, how we’re defined, what roles we’re in, and what our uses are in the story) and for people like them.  It’s like if somebody drew a picture of me as some over-the-top racist, sexist, transphobic stereotype of a Chinese trans woman, and if I complain I’m told I hate myself since I’m not okay with this particular depiction that they chose for me that they made for themselves and their consumption.

certain fandoms complaining about having to wait 2 years for a season

meanwhile video game fans sitting over here not uttering a word about how their favorite series’ update like once every 4 years or in some cases, not at all any more

your fandom game is weak sit down

For the longest thing I’ve ever posted, I decided to give my two-cents on what makes one a gamer.
