Op Ed

1Reason - In The Base Case by Kim Swift (thanks GamesIndustry International)
So, I have a secret wish. Whenever Iím in the public eye, whether itís doing PR or giving a talk Ė and this is going to sound amazingly corny ó I hope that thereís a little girl out there that sees me and thinks to herself, ďOh look! Girls make games too.Ē I say this because this problem isnít going to change on a dime. A grown adult isnít 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...
