The biggest issue in the gaming industry has recently come to light over the past week or so and it’s revealing a very dark history surrounding the entire gaming industry which absolutely needs to be talked about.
For those of you that aren’t aware, many women are finally speaking out about the horrible misconduct and abuse that they were subjected to by many representatives in the video game industry and the streaming scene, some of which I previously thought were good people and their work which I respected greatly. This all seems to surround a culture of treating women like lesser beings or at least not taking them as seriously which for an industry that focuses upon appealing to nerds and the outcasts of society it’s almost no surprise that it attracts these kinds of people.
Things absolutely need to change so that everyone can feel equal and not consider the possibility that theyh may have to leave their job due to being harrassed purely on their gender. It’s great to see so many women speaking up and exposing those that would seek to hide their dark truths. These things need to be rooted out and ripped from the core of this culture so that we can get back to doing the things we came here to do, make great video games and have fun doing so. For the moment, if you have ever experienced sexual misconduct or mistreatment while in your workplace, hell even if it’s in any industry, not just the gaming one, then please do speak out so that these kind of men don’t get away with what they have done.
That’s all for now, and as always. It’s not just a game, It’s a Life.
