Women in Gaming, Friend or Foes?

Today, DM Agony looks down from his tower of dark obsidian and pontificates on the position that women seem to be at in our gaming culture. (Anita Sarkeesian, Culture, Felicia Day)

even though I agree with the premise of this article (not with the theory) I just can't help it! And what do I mean by it? I mean this: http://www.rantgaming.com/w...

But I think that happens because usually being a geek is seen as a "+" for women bur a "-" for men. So when you see a man with a shirt related to a comic/gaming/something other men don't even question it but then you see a woman with the same shirt and the first thing that comes to mind is: is she that desperate or does she really likes that stuff?

But who's to blame here? Probably the men since we are the desperate ones that gave so much control to the women over us. Just go to Youtube and compare some of the most famous gaming related channels and you'll find that most of them are just from some random girl that is a gamer. The content is garbage but she's hot.

An example: http://www.youtube.com/user...

I know, I know...I just blew your brain.

My response to that though is that why is any of their opinions less valid? There are plenty of guy youtube reviewers that are crap out there, but most people don't care or ignore them. Whereas when a girl does it, she immediately comes under intense scrutiny and inspection.

Foes. All foes.

I would just say human beings like any other gamer, minus those who simply do it for attention.

No one really cares if you're guy, girl, black or white. You're not unique.

So long as they don't go on a mic and say "hey I'm a girl give me attention" I don't care. Play the game. Just more competition to have fun with.
