Here's what I'm hearing:"Men have it hard too."
Predicted response by the author. If you're making this defense, you're making the author's point for her, or you didn't read the article. Either way, great job. Here's the difference, though. When someone on the internet says they're going to find you and fucking kill you, you don't give two shits. Being a man, you know you can pretty much can take care of yourself. When they say that to her, she stops going out at night. Also, too: rape threats and kitchen comments."When people say too much about this topic, people stop listening."
Because shutting up is going to fix this issue? Both people and the news industry have serious ADD. The only way to move forward is to keep it in the public eye. And it's like Gandhi said, "First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win." I'm seeing all three in this thread, so that's progress at least. "I worked in the game industry, and I never saw this."
Good for you. You got lucky. That hardly means this isn't an issue. I don't even go looking for stories like this, yet come across them on a monthly basis. It's an issue, it exists, and the gaming industry is poorer for it. Tired of CoD clones? More women in the industry can help fix that."This is a first world problem. There are bigger issues out there."
The problem of sexism in the gaming industry is emblematic of the violence against and suppression of women worldwide. It's a major issue. There isn't a country in the world
where women have equality to men. This despite women outnumbering men worldwide, and in industrialized nations having greater education. The USA, where most of these stories are focused, doesn't even break the top 10. Women in the US make 77% the salary of men in the same position, for example.
