    smashsurvey:

    Now think of how many of those female characters and protagonists are oversexed, created for the male gaze, or put in an inactive damsel role for the plot of the game. Representation matters. A Study last year proved that exposure to tv shows increased the self esteem of young white boys and markedly decreased the confidence and self esteem of girls across the board (and we haven’t even started on the representation of characters of color and the effect it has on children’s self perception). 

    Video games are a different media, and even more concerning if representation metrics are changing how our kids think of themselves. Especially knowing that 67% of American Households have video game consoles and 91% of Children play video games regularlyhow do you think the portrayal (and lack of portrayals) of women and girls in these games is affecting little girls – or influencing how little boys view their importance and/or influence over them? 

    Comics. Movies. Lit. Pop Culture. The Smash Survey is an upcoming podcast project that will critically explore the representation of race, gender, and queer identity in media and pop culture in a fun and engaging format.

    Some Dude Told Her He Doesn’t Want To Hear Her Feminist Rants

    If you want someone to stop talking about a problem, maybe it’s a better idea to help address that problem rather than telling them you don’t want to hear about it anymore. Just maybe.

Woman: Even though the Magic community has made progess in recent years, there are still problem swith sexism and stores that aren’t friendly to women.
But as players we can make a big difference by letting people know what’s not okay, and calling out questionable behavior.
Man: Jeez! Can’t I just have fun playing a game without having to deal with these social issues?!
Woman: That’s the same thing I’m asking for.]
