Friendly reminder that groups like this exist
I feel like the issues of gaming and gender really clash the most in videogames vs. other forms of media. It’s a medium of entertainment historically used and catered to mostly men, actively in strife as more women begin to enter the hobby. Both sides of this debate are fairly retarded, but many gamers would rather argue over pointless inane shit like this with the same ferocity as 12 year olds argue in console wars. No matter what you believe, you’re either going to get called a “sperglord basement dweller” for rejecting the new awkward push for inclusion of more women in games, or a “white knight faggot” for siding with what people assume to be a population you want your penis inside.
By getting sucked up in the debate, you’re equally as cancerous as the “GAMER GURLS XDDDDD” because meta-debate over people playing the game or enjoying the culture in a way you don’t approve of (STOP LIKING WHAT I DON’T LIKE) is fucking pointless. There are people at different stages of activity, experience, and skill in both sexes, and weighing heavily on this debate only contributes to the fragmentation of the community. It’s hypocritical to point out mainly women when there’s tons of guys who are equally shitty and cancerous.
The guy in the last picture is Phil Burnell, arguably one of the worst Youtube gamers and runs DSP Gaming.
