Why Gaming Journalism Should Stop Treating Women Like Meat

Gawker writes

I'm not saying gaming news should become as mature a genre of journalism as politics, business, and world news. It's still a new field and will always be as subjective as covering music or film, with the accompanying celebrity culture. But now that women outnumber men in online gaming, party games like Rock Band appeal to both sexes, and casual games (popular among women and adults) are the fastest-growing segment of the gaming industry, gaming journalism should be an all-inclusive genre.

The story is too old to be commented.

But the majority of gamers are male, and as long as that's the case most facets of the industry will focus on what that segment enjoys: boobies.

BTW, I love that one of the sites the article links to in reference has the attached image as an ad. Which industry is it that has the problem with treating women like objects again?
