Join GameRevolution in the Fight to #BanBabesFromE3

Video games have a problem and it's not resolution or frames per second. It's how our industry caters heavily toward one single demographic. While video games impart a great deal of personal ownership over an experience, we've ignored the very real responsibility we have to creating an open and welcoming medium for all people.
It's time to take control. It's time to #BanBabesFromE3.
As a kid, I always dreamed of attending the Electronic Entertainment Expo. I wanted to cover the show as part of the media or debut my own game, but now I feel like staying at home.
It's terrible that gamers default to the same names that probably hurt them badly in school and it's horrifying that the people behind your favorite video games continue a practice that has no real benefit to their business, because why? Tradition?! These two negative trends are more deeply connected than we think.
