Keeping Cooties out of the Club House: Why Dividing Esports by Gender Makes No Sense at All

8CN: Gender issues continue to plague gaming, most recently stirring up controversy in the world of esports. The International e-Sports Federation, a league based in South Korea, has a policy of dividing their tournaments along gender lines.

Due to the fact that participants would be qualifiying for an IeSF event, and the IeSF has no women's Hearthstone division, female gamers were being barred from entering.

The story is too old to be commented.
