I realize I’m again late to the party here, but there’s a good reason for that. When I first heard about the mindblowingly inane Gamergate, I didn’t believe it was real at first. With my head buried in the sand, I thought there was no possible way a movement started by the vicious ravings of an ex could possibly come to anything in this day and age. I laugh sadly at my own naivete. Then, my horror ever growing I realized it wasn’t going away.
It could be said that I like vampires quite a bit. It could also be said that the sky is a very nice shade of blue today, zebras generally have stripes, and for the most part fish like to be in water. Are you picking up what I'm laying down, here? Vampires are pretty much my favorite fictional creature after dragons. I've tried to pin down why that is, and I've got two possible reasons.
I can't really call this a Starcraft Diaries entry because I'll only be talking about the game briefly. I mentioned I wanted to talk about sexism in gaming and nerd culture, but I don't want to parrot all the opinions flying back and forth across the internet.
