Op Ed

Polygon - No skin thick enough- The daily harassment of women in the game industry.
The problem with sharing these stories in broad terms is that people think men and women receive the same harassment online. They do not. I’m not writing this piece to evoke your sympathy. I’m writing to share with you what prominent, successful women in the industry experience, in their own words.

Rock, Paper, Shotgun - Game Names Are Almost Universally Terrible.
Seriously it’s not that hard why are you all so bad at this aauuugh.

Let me just say, I've worked in female dominated industries that includes medium and heavy manufacturing where women are mainly harness assemblers; and men do receive the same type of harassment.

Exactly, I work at a female dominated place, and there's plenty of harassment and discrimination against men. It would be nice if people could just treat everyone the same, but it's not likely.

This so much... women who think they are unique peaches (with their problems ,p) may really be that in their specific industry.. but by the gods, you walk out of the games industry into any female dominated industry (in a public position) and you are constantly harassed too.

The thing is, men don't talk about it.

And no, this does not mean I do not see that as a problem, but what do these women expect us to do? The way this entire debate goes ostracizes men as a whole and this is why the entire debate leads to even HARSHER backlash.

That Internet toxicity is increasing is also false. There are just communities that are extremely toxic (youtube and any MOBA comes to mind...) and women get hit by that more because the same kind of retards that are toxic against noobs are often also toxic against women specifically.

I really think there is some truth that criticism by females is somehow processed in a different part of the brain in a male, and that this part in the brain makes males instantly feel attacked.. wonder if I am the same in that regard. But if you try to fight nature as your agenda you are on a losing track if there ever was one...!
