Bullying in Video Games: Let’s make online gaming safe and enjoyable for everybody

Sounds a bit boring, “Preventing online bullying”. You might be thinking that you have no obligation to help others, since you’ve never been a victim of it yourself. That’s perfectly reasonable, but the truth is online bullying causes depression, suicide and social anxiety. Four in 10 teens have experienced online harassment. Video games are just another platform for it. Sure, games aren’t the social powerhouses that ask.fm or facebook are – but there’s a lot of bullying here. Stuff we don’t know about. Why? Because it’s normal. Most people just don’t see it as bullying. (Culture)
