I will continue to subscribe to Giant Bomb just to see the writhing squirming masses of angry pasty white dudes that apparently make up most of the commenting populace dragged kicking and screaming into the sunlight like ants whose nest just got trampled.

This might be my favorite post in this thread. The fact that it's right beside a smilin' Bob Ross makes it even better.

love it

Look at US LIBERALS mocking the white dudes, aren't we cool hating on white people and males. So edgy.

@ZeForgotten: ... I think I'm done trying to answer your nonsense.

I'm a white male also, stop being so sensitive, being a liberal or a conservative doesn't mean you can't recognize how shitty the minority of angry white males act to things like this. Just saying that you are offended doesn't change anything, it doesn't even help you in whatever point you're trying to make.

@aceofspudz: okay I'm going to respond in my way to these tweets. I apologize but I think what you said as responses was really horrible and very linear. You were just reading the words and criticizing them, there is a certain amount of inference and understanding needed to understand what's happening in these tweets.

------#1reasonwhy b/c when my desk was nr the door, most clients thought I was the receptionist. This didn't happen to male dev after desk swap

This woman was hired as a dev. Because of her desk arrangement everyone assumed she was a receptionist. When they do that they completely overlook any of the work she has done or effort and involvement she has in her job. When her male colleague sat there they didn't suspect him to be less than a dev.

--------#1reasonwhy because when I tell people I'm a designer, I without fail get "Really? You don't look like you play games. Guys must love you."

I think saying this is the worst thing you could say to a woman gamer. We all take pride in our gamer heritage and when this is said and its said a whole lot it completely disallows a woman from being apart of the industry or just gamer culture at all.

--------I'm hesitant to do PR for the game I'm working on, for fear of backlash. #1reasonwhy

You can't say that this a general fear for all PR workers because this is referring to the fact that people don't assume women can be PR people for games. Of course this happens to most people who have to do PR for anything but the reason its tagged with a 1reasonwhy hash is because it is about women doing PR work in the game industry.

---------#1reasonwhy Because I still have to keep saying: “But what if the player is female?”

this is a complete thought and we shouldn't just roll or eyes at this. Most of all games are made with the idea that a man will be playing the game, not that a man or a woman could be the player. Imagine a woman playing Duke Nukem. Its weird right. That's a game made just for men, now think of games that are made just for women...

---------Because our lead designer used to yell about there being "a vagina in the room" and nobody called him on it, boss included. #1reasonwhy

this guy is super unprofessional and definitely sexist.

--------- I'm ashamed to admit I've also been conditioned to be critical of my fellow females in the industry just because of their sex #1reasonwhy

Her work environment is conditioning her to look down on her colleagues based on their sex.

----------#1reasonwhy: Because gamers assumed I was a 'booth babe' at a games convention, and always asked my male colleague the "serious" questions.

You can't just chalk this up to gamers being an awkward bunch. That's a wild generalization and a big reason why these sexism problems exist. Its incredibly horrible to say "hey you're being mistaken for a model! That's cool! You should like that!" This women was hired to do a job and now people aren't allowing her to do so because she is a woman and they are thinking "That lady can't possibly be a person trying to sell this game, women don't do that they are only booth babes."

-----------#1reasonwhy Because at a games networking event, someone asked for my business card and proceeded to flirt via text the next morning.

I don't know about this one. It could just be this one guy that did that, I haven't heard a lot of stories like this but it must of sucked for this woman to think that she was being recognized for her work but was only being seen as a piece of ass by this guy.

-----------BC when, females in the game industry are really made visible by the media it's bc of this and not bc of the games they make. #1Reasonwhy

Jade Raymond was made visible because people thought she was just there because of her looks not because was an active part of Assassin's Creed.

-----------When every female character I want to include "has to make sense" but making everybody a dude needs no explanation #1reasonwhy

Female characters are constantly put in sexual roles or supporting roles or they're just replacing a male role with a woman so people won't get upset. Faith from ME and Shell from Portal are great, they aren't sexualized, they aren't insignificant characters, they aren't just male personas in female bodies. There is a complete lack of female representation in media as a whole. There has to be an outside reason for a woman to be a main character, it's never seen as just "this woman is just the main fucking character because she is."
