Girls and Gaming

I subscribe to a feed called Gamer Grrlz, and I wanted to direct any fellow gamers out there to her topic about girls and gaming today.  As a gamer girl myself, I run into a lot of obstacles she spoke about in her blog, from rudeness in forums to blatant sexist trolls.  And I'm not just talking about the average boob size in games (which, to put a random number, I swear is probably JJJ).  There's also the problem of female characters in games, which apparently only have the range of useless Healer/love interest to (which actually pisses me off more) "strong" female characters, who have no social skills or otherwise act like a romping, stomping bee-otch. 

Anyway, check her blog out.  I could go on for quite awhile, but I'm cranky enough today.  I think I'll have some tea....


  1. Birthday is coming up... do you have any wishes, wants, or desires?

  2. I want a horse (not a pony), a goose that lays golden eggs, and .... wait, this is still reality, isn't it? Shoot. Well, more knitting stuff would be nice, I'm quite taken by the cotton yarn. Or you can always go to my wish list on, which I shared on my facebook page. There's a lot of books I would like, and I'm sure you can find them at a powell's or anywhere. I've also been dropping hints to Mike for the last two weeks.

  3. Tell me about it, sexism sucks whichever field it is in.
    I guess all you can do is keep going strong!
