Op Ed

  • Eurogamer.net - Sexism and harassment in the games industry isn't just about big names- the entire culture must change.
    "The accounts are often shocking, but for many working in games - particularly women and non-binary people - the revelations come as little surprise. Sexism and harassment is rife in the industry, and the cases being publicly discussed are merely the tip of the iceberg. I've been awed by the bravery of survivors who have named their high-profile abusers, risking online harassment, friendships, or their entire careers to do so. Removing powerful abusers remains essential in making the industry safer, and it's important that this vital work continues. There is a tendency, however, for the media to focus on big-name predators while failing to address the underlying culture that enables them. These incidents are not a rarity: they are endemic. Every young woman in games has a story."

I 100% agree. Everyone is innocent until proven guilty. Things can change for the better but its better-done person by person rather than feel-good statements and "promises" of change. Usually, those who broadcast the loudest that they are great and nice and better than thou are the ones with most to hide.

Hate to be a downer but I've seen it my entire life. I don't expect it to change much, If at all.
