"The video game community is dominated by men and rampant with sexism. Women who express an interest in the subject are known by the pejorative ‘gamer girl’ which implies that women deserve some sort of special treatment because they take an interest in the same hobby as men. Urban dictionary even defines the term as: a girl who plays video games in order to get attention. I chose "PC Master Race because it’s what the PC gaming community proudly refers to themselves as and that’s how I see myself, a member of a close community that includes men and women alike. Women usually don’t get to even make the distinction between what type of gamers they are because they’re automatically lumped into the category "gamer girl" regardless of their particular interests. Furthermore, actually expressing which video games you enjoy as a woman puts you at risk of gender-related criticisms because your authenticity as a gamer is negated if you play "girl games" like Pokemon or The Sims. I enjoy those games, but I’ll also kick your ass on Team Fortress 2 and I cannot wait for the release of Fallout 4 (for PC of course). With all this being said, I shouldn’t have to fight for male approval over something I am passionate about simply because of my gender.”
If you don’t have a massive alternative universe in your head with developed people and stories you’re lying.
