Where My Ladies At? Why Women Are Underrepresented in the Gaming World

Default Prime: "I cannot convey enough how much I hate the term “girl gamer.” My friends and family bestowed me with this hasty nickname when I was just a kid, but after I grew into adulthood, the name really started to get under my skin. To this day, I can’t understand why the name “gamer” wouldn’t suffice. Is it just a natural assumption that all gamers are men, or is the gaming world so saturated with testosterone that it’s out of this world and extraordinary to have a woman join in?" (Culture)
