Gaming and sexism, with a happy ending! The only part my Feminist Critique Brain balks at is that it takes a man to mediate the problem to another man. Sure, he was the Moderator. Sure, he was ultimately kick-ass helpful. And I don't begrudge a word he said; he did right. But that he needed to, and that she couldn't and/or didn't and wanted/needed to still remains. I will always cheer when someone stands up for the disenfranchised of the world, but I will also always hold my breath and bend an ear to hear if the voiceless will at last speak on their own behalf. Which she did, after the fact by documenting and sharing her experience; a step in the right direction. Battle on friends, vanquish ignorance and over-ripe cultural brutishness!
 
Hey, stumbled on this women in games post that was actually happy, so figured that needed to be shared if yall haven't seen it yet.

It's a worthy thing to wish for.  I'm just thrilled that a developer who worked on the game directly stepped in and let the community know in no uncertain terms, and without hestitation, that this completely common behavior is unacceptable.  I cannot sufficiently stress how much this is needed in the industry, how rare it is.  Hats off.

I guess I would think that if a pile of money showed up earmarked for only this project, they'd be able to dedicate people to the task.

Yeah, this story.  Completely disproportionate response that should obviously be overturned, but there is a certain element of Punk romance here that is so compelling.  Rock and roll should forever get you in trouble with the Man, or you're not doing it right, right?

Also. Swoon for swooning. A new song from an ever-favorite group of mine.

I have branched out in the internets! I have two tumblr sites on which to keep track of two separate storylines.
