Just a Game:
A 7 minute documentary about female gamers, and misogyny in the gaming community.
This could not have been made without the videos that were submitted, and without many wonderful articles written.
The aspect ratio is a little off unfortunately, but I hope you all still enjoy it, and can take something from it.
Warning for strong language use, mentions of rape, general dude-bro douche-baggery.
Please share and spread :)
you know I’m all for girl gamers and everything like they have every right to game. But let’s be honest they aren’t as good as guys and it’s a fact. when was the last time you saw a girl in a national tournament or anything of that sort? It just doesn’t happen so yes girls can game but their skill level will never be as good
OH man, you’re such a NICE GUY! So we’re allowed to play games, even though we should never expect to be as good as you wonderful strong men? WOW, thank you SO much for your permission!
Take a step back and have a look at what you just said. Thank you for being a shining example of everything wrong with the gaming community. Let girls play but they’re not as good as us. They never will be.
Biologically, there are NO advantages that men have over women that translate to gaming. None at all. But what DO men have going for them? Well for starters, their presence isn’t highly criticized from the moment they enter a tournament. Either she’s there because they want a token girl (she’s not a ‘real gamer’) or she hasn’t got a life, is ugly or fat right?
And if a guy joins a team I can bet you a lot of money HIS couch won’t spend their entire training session making him uncomfortable by trying to guess his bra size, or ask him to take his shirt off while focusing the webcam streaming the training session solely on his legs.
And heaven forbid women try to avoid this and dare to make an all female team. No, if they do that, they’re either being part of the problem (they won’t let guys play with them it’s unfair to us) or they’re doing it for attention (just because they have tits and play games they want us to watch). Either way, they’re fucked before they begin, because people like you have decided they shouldn’t be there.
The minute a woman starts trying to become an competitive gamer, the odds are stacked against her. It’s all by your terms, and your rules.
It’s not about skill levels, because the playing field isn’t level to begin with. We don’t want to be harassed, or belittled, or have to deal with ignorant people like you who assume that because you have a dick you’re going to be better than we will ever be before we’ve even started playing.
Guys are not always going to be better than girls at gaming. Guys are not better than girls at gaming now. They’ve just made sure it’s really fucking hard for a woman to reach a point where she can prove it in a way that you can’t pretend never happened.
Ok see this little outburst of yours isn’t helping your case. Let me illustrate my point based upon my experience in my game league if legends. The world championships, North American championships, European championships, and Korean didn’t have a single female. Now this is a game strictly online where they only see your username and take the top teams and put them against each other. There is no sexism in this game just gameplay. The top solo player in the world holds 4 of the top 50 spots in the world and he’s a male. Facts are facts babe.
Do not call me babe. You’re not my friend, my boyfriend, or anyone who I would allow to call me something like that.
I did not have a little outburst. I addressed your assumption with several articles and examples as to why classifying women as substandard gamers based on the competitive arena is flawed at best. You replied with one example of a leader board and your own deductions based on LoL, which demonstrated pretty clearly you’re going to stick to what you see as the facts.
Sure, to me it seems like saying ‘the reason we don’t see as many women in higher level corporate/government/anything is because women are not as good' rather than admitting that the society we live in makes it much harder for someone identifying as female to get there, but sadly a lot of people refuse to see the forest for the trees. Especially when they think they have a point to prove.
But the end, you have the right to disagree with me. You do not have the right to patronise me.
Oh look a relevant article.
Also the lack of women at a competitive level in a single game ≠ WOMEN AREN’T AS GOOD AS MEN AT DOING THE VIDEO GAMESES.
