One of my favorite Mako ‘Hallelujah’ moments is when she imitate a character. 

Mako is the BEST.

I got Pokemon Y several months ago and I finally started playing it this month.  I’m currently working on getting all the eeveelutions.  I just need Leafeon and Umbreon.  I have a particular fondness for Espeon after working so hard to get one on Pokemon Crystal many years ago.  X)

Just a Game:

A 7 minute documentary about female gamers, and misogyny in the gaming community.

This could not have been made without the videos that were submitted, and without many wonderful articles written.

The aspect ratio is a little off unfortunately, but I hope you all still enjoy it, and can take something from it.

Warning for strong language use, mentions of rape, general dude-bro douche-baggery.  

Please share and spread :)

you know I’m all for girl gamers and everything like they have every right to game.  But let’s be honest they aren’t as good as guys and it’s a fact.  when was the last time you saw a girl in a national tournament or anything of that sort? It just doesn’t happen so yes girls can game but their skill level will never be as good

OH man, you’re such a NICE GUY! So we’re allowed to play games, even though we should never expect to be as good as you wonderful strong men? WOW, thank you SO much for your permission!

Take a step back and have a look at what you just said. Thank you for being a shining example of everything wrong with the gaming community. Let girls play but they’re not as good as us. They never will be.

Biologically, there are NO advantages that men have over women that translate to gaming. None at all. But what DO men have going for them? Well for starters, their presence isn’t highly criticized from the moment they enter a tournament. Either she’s there because they want a token girl (she’s not a ‘real gamer’) or she hasn’t got a life, is ugly or fat right?

And if a guy joins a team I can bet you a lot of money HIS couch won’t spend their entire training session making him uncomfortable by trying to guess his bra size, or ask him to take his shirt off while focusing the webcam streaming the training session solely on his legs. 

And heaven forbid women try to avoid this and dare to make an all female team. No, if they do that, they’re either being part of the problem (they won’t let guys play with them it’s unfair to us) or they’re doing it for attention (just because they have tits and play games they want us to watch). Either way, they’re fucked before they begin, because people like you have decided they shouldn’t be there.

The minute a woman starts trying to become an competitive gamer, the odds are stacked against her. It’s all by your terms, and your rules.

It’s not about skill levels, because the playing field isn’t level to begin with. We don’t want to be harassed, or belittled, or have to deal with ignorant people like you who assume that because you have a dick you’re going to be better than we will ever be before we’ve even started playing.

Guys are not always going to be better than girls at gaming. Guys are not better than girls at gaming now. They’ve just made sure it’s really fucking hard for a woman to reach a point where she can prove it in a way that you can’t pretend never happened. 

Guys always assume girls can’t play and laugh when we want to go a few rounds. Until we beat them at their very favorite game and then they get upset - must be beginner’s luck. So we beat them with random character selection. Then they don’t want to play anymore.

Sounds like somebody’s butthurt after being pwn’d by a girl one too many times.

As a female “ex-progamer” I can relate to this somehow. I was playing Counter-Strike 1.6 and Painkiller back in the days in the Electronic Sports League (better known as ESL). We had an all female Counter-Strike 1.6 team and when people saw our ESL page, we received tons of messages with “Don’t you want to surrender now? You can’t win, you’re girls, girls can’t play.” and similar things. Even sexual harrassment like “Show us your boobies if you lose!”. This was the daily flood of messages. Good thing is: we were really good. But our wins were belittled by “fellow” male gamers with messages like “We let you win, because, you know, you have to be gentlemen sometimes!” or “We were nice to you, now show us some skin.” … Btw, at least in Germany, the female counter-strike pro-gaming scene was quite big compared to a lot of other games.

My Painkiller ‘career’ wasn’t as bad, because I didn’t upload any profile pic on the ESL page. But of course, some player still found out because we talked in teamspeak, first told me they will report me because I “sound like a 12 year old boy”. Until I sent them proof I’m actually female, then the usual harassment of the “noob gender” continued.

Gaming isn’t biologically implanted in males, neither in females, there’s no biological difference so don’t give me that bs. I’ve been a gamer ever since I was 11 years old and I am proud to be a gamer. I am good at some games and bad at a lot other games, just like every other gamer.

Another story from another genre, not professional gaming but… let’s call it idling: MMORPGs. A lot of males actually build female characters and be like “omg look at me I’m female, give me some free stuff for nudes!” … Female gamers would never do that tbh, yet most males treat most females just like this. Which is why I usually build male characters and don’t even go to teamspeak with other people anymore because I have to be ASHAMED at how OTHER FEMALES (males in disguise) act in these games and I just want free items when I’m female.

There are some exceptions though, like a guildcolleague of mine whom I talked to about exactly this issue. I told him the reasons why I choose a male character and he understood. I don’t want to generalize that ALL of the males act like immatures on the internet, but in my experience, a lot of them do.

Let’s just enjoy gaming, regardless of gender, sexuality, race or whatever else. We are all GAMERS, so let’s act like gamers, let’s act like a team.

Reblogging for something else: Female Game Developers:

Did you know that Assassin’s Creed and Assassin’s Creed 2 were produced by a woman ? A game mostly everyone acknowledges as one of the best in its genre. Jade Raymond was the producer for AC1 and executive producer for AC2. She has to be ugly, no? This is her:

(Source … and this is just one of the examples. A really famous one.

Yeah, and the first big argument I got into over sexism in gaming was after an artist I followed on dA drew a pornographic comic of Ms. Raymond fellating fans to “buy her game!” because he was convinced - as were a shitload of his fans - that she didn’t actually have a hand in it, and had just been picked by Ubisoft to do interviews for her sex appeal. And after I got furious and spoke up, everything I said was dismissed as ‘white-knighting.’ I love games but man oh man do I loathe most of these gamers.
