Maybe it’s just in the environment I grew up in, since I always had a good number of female friends, but it baffles me how sexism in the world can still exist. I mean, when I first really started becoming an internet dweller it was pretty rare but then I started seeing it everywhere.
It’s also weird that people still deny it.
Anyways, just to prove that it does still exist Emily Matthew has done a study to discuss the issue and Gamasutra has an interview with her about the study. It’s a good read and if you don’t believe that sexism in video game culture doesn’t exist, maybe this can change your mind and encourage you to try and stand up against it.
