In the past year or so, ‘gamer’ has become synonymous with sexist. It’s a sad fact. Sure, there were always elements in games that weren’t representative of reality, and I’m glad that these were highlighted so that developers could be pushed to make better games. Unfortunately, many jumped onto this and the topic of women or sexism in gaming has become a ridiculously messy topic. However, research into this subject started way before these problems, and the findings exonerate the maligned gamers of the world.
