FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

Tell GR: How Would You Fix Sexism in Video Games?

Posted on Tuesday, January 28 @ 16:30:00 Eastern by

Last week, when a member of the enthusiast press sexually harassed a female colleague via Facebook, many of you were naturally angry. Many of you expressed disappointment in the exchange, that it could have ever happened in this day and age. Many of you also offered your own take on David Jaffe's horrifyingly insensitive and uninformed remarks.

The onus of ending sexual harassment should not be on the victim of that exchange. It should be on the entire culture and audience around it. We'd love to tackle sexual harassment and the unique and changing role women have in our every day lives....

but this is a video game site, so let's keep it to the medium. Everyone agrees this incident was unacceptable, so how can we change the culture of video games to be more inclusive and less harmful? Gaming as a market must accept all people as equal opportunities for growth, so why do some groups get such a shitty deal?

How would you fix sexism in video games?

On a side note, I realize this is a mature question for the level of immaturity we encourage here at GameRevolution. Hopefully we can use this opportunity to grow Tell GR, instead of close it forever and never speak of it again.
