Are Video Games Sexist?

Are video games rife with sexism? And have you heard that most video gamers are now adult women—not teenage boys in the basement? A new study says so. Feminist tech writers have seized on the study as proof that the video industry has fallen behind the times: too many games, they say, perpetuate a culture of sexism and misogyny.

This is the woman that everyone in the industry should be listening to and paying attention. Not Anita Sarkeesian and literally who.

She speaks sense and backs ups her claims. Christina Sommers fights for real feminism, not this 3rd wave feminism BS that we are all getting tired of.

Yet, Anita Sarkeesian gets awarded for her biased views and "studies".

She doesn't generate "hits" for Polygon so they won't mention her.

I love how she's actually done her research for not being a gamer herself. Plus she even states that the last time she played on one was arcade Pacman, in a bar years ago.

I mean she even states and proves how despite what some "studies" show, males are still the highest percentage of the gaming audience.

She's like a super Mom

'Well said' Fox - except the... super mum bit?

This is the kind of feminism I think we can all get behind.

It's about time we heard from more women who are striving for equality by presenting facts and common sense, instead of trying to domination others with lies and deceit.

Still sick of this crap either way...

I'm sick of feminism, in the literal sense of the word not the accepted definition. But she's not for that, she's for equality, which I really hope you're not sick of.
