I really liked the "No Girls Allowed" article. Lien seems to be making the point that I constantly try to get across only to fall on deaf ears. Which is that basically the recent focus on sexism in games journalism is actually furthering the false divide between male and female gamers that was established by marketing in the 90s. Millions of girls have, do, and always will love video games, and shaming devs for not focusing on them has the adverse effect of reinforcing the notion that games are for boys only and girls need to struggle to get their "pink aisle", disregarding the girls that play those exact same games that boys do.
And its exactly how we get terrible games like Barbie Dream House Party that try to pander to the idea that there are no games specifically for girls, as if girls can only play games with "girly" subjects.
