Op Ed

1Reason - In The Base Case by Kim Swift (thanks GamesIndustry International)
So, I have a secret wish. Whenever Im in the public eye, whether its doing PR or giving a talk and this is going to sound amazingly corny I hope that theres a little girl out there that sees me and thinks to herself, Oh look! Girls make games too. I say this because this problem isnt going to change on a dime. A grown adult isnt going to change their mind about their inherent beliefs or their personality because someone gave them the stink eye (or an Internet reaming).

Stop it. Someone is saying "there's a problem" and you're taking it as "it's your fault."

Stop making yourself a victim when someone else is. This isn't about you.

Oh, so, because it's about women and I'm not a woman, then nothing's wrong, right? What kind of bullshit is that?! That's saying that she (or any other woman that jumps on the soapbox from here to eternity, including the multitudes of others before her) has every right to bitch and moan about being treated as a lesser sex but if I do the same, 'it's not my fight'? I have no right to take the spotlight from her? Whatever. I stated my reasons and said what I wanted to say. You say she's a 'victim'? Really? Wow, ok, man...

No, the issue is that she's complaining about a problem in society and you're taking it to mean a problem with you, then making all kind of "I shouldn't be a victim" arguments.

When have you ever been treated as a lesser sex in which to complain about? Call me when you make 70 cents on the dollar, or any time you make a point someone says to you "that's nice, now go make a sandwich," even if just a joke...
