1960s: Those people that write about racial inequality should just shut up already. Constantly writing about it won't do anything.
Are people burning symbols on women's lawns? How many games have "men only" sections, and will beat up women if they try to play? Are there parades in city streets promoting the superiority of men over women? How many women have been literally hung for gaming?
Ridiculous comparisons only succeed in turning off those who might actually support a cause.
First, gender discrimination was just as deadly and ingrained as racial discrimination, and still is in many countries.
Second, while gender harassment in games
is not as deadly as the fight for civil rights back in the 1960s, the same methods for mitigating it apply.
