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.

I don't think many women would have a problem with getting men to condemn their stalkers, their abusers, and their harassers. When they start generalizing, accusing all men of being victimizers, the moral high-ground becomes very shaky. This article borders on that...

Great points Eirik, thanks for a good read. That is how I feel about womens issues now, they have gone too far the other way and almost alienate people with it now. I've worked in several female dominated fields and its no picnic for men either. Maybe I should write a post on Tumblr about not feeling safe.

OTOH, there's a -lot- of comments in this thread that go way past bordering on supporting the claims in the article. How many here were saying "suck it up, it happens to everyone"? How many boiled down to "it's not that big a deal"?

Over half, at a rough count. That's pretty damned telling, in my view.
