Aaaaaargh I can’t deal with this sexist bullshit. You want to know why I didn’t play videogames when I was younger? Because I’d been told my whole life that it was something guys did. When I met my husband, who was very much into videogames, I watched him play a lot, and saw for the first time how much fun they are. Still at that point I actually thought that I might not be any good at videogames, because I’m a woman. Because that’s what I’d been told my whole god damn life. Now, I play more than my husband does (At the moment: Borderlands 2, Assassin’s Creed 3, Skyrim & Dishonored), and I STILL get the whole “Oh, buying a game for your boyfriend? No? So you’re just playing this to make your boyfriend happy?” bullshit speech every time I buy a game. A lot of women are into “nerdy” things now because they are in the mainstream for the first time, and a lot of us didn’t pursue them as interests before because they weren’t “for us”. LET PEOPLE LIKE WHAT THEY WANT TO LIKE, TO WHATEVER EXTENT AND DEPTH THEY WANT TO LIKE IT.
