Gaming while Being a Cooties-Carrier


I’m not a gamer. I don’t have the time to be one, which makes me sad sometimes. Then I read things like this and I’m suddenly glad I’ve got time constraints.

You’re clicking on a tumblr entry that documents the abuse one woman gets for expressing (rather mild) disappointment at the lack of female protagonists in new games. (If I were a gamer, that’d piss me off, too.)

It’s weird that women are often accused of being thin-skinned and over-emotional: look at all the shrieky, hysterical reactions one tiny, harmless critique gets. Doubly funny are the shrieky, hysterical men imploring the mean feminist to calm down.
