Before you read, do your best to shed your own ideals, experiences, morals, opinions, whatever... All that stuff that makes you a unique person is great in some respects, but terrible in others, like trying to understand just how oppressive and unfriendly the gaming industry can be to female professionals.
The kinds of interactions depicted in the comic below aren't the kind you'd see on the front pages of enthusiast press websites everywhere. As a fan of video games, this probably seems impossible, but these types of interactions happen on a day-to-day basis in corporate lobbies or trade shows or even on Facebook.
Take a second, shed the male ego you've been curating all your life, and then check this out:
