Anon: specialsnowflakesyndrome. tumblr. com/post/20354624027/steam-gamer-girls-the-master-post <- why people often get mad when a girl mentions she is a gamer. Not saying all girl gamers are like this, just explaining away the guys who say “IM A GURL GAMER DONT HIT ON ME SILLY BOIZ.”
Reply: I…actually see nothing wrong with the people featured in that post.
So what if a woman wants to tell the gaming community who she is?
Lord knows they don’t get enough exposure as is, when the stereotype is that men play games and women don’t, when a woman is vilely attacked for daring to point out sexism in games, when the worst insults thrown around on XBL relate to stereotypically female anatomy.
I have no problem with women calling themselves “girl gamers” and trumpeting the fact that they are a girl and play video games. Because you know what? Most of the gaming industry DOES seem to have a problem with it.
