“I think that it would be worth your time to make something that has a real contribution to the world. I don’t mean to hurt your feelings but when I see women who have anything to do with a masculine activity like gaming, it’s disappointing because it doesn’t do anything for anyone but themselves. Keep that in mind when you’re on your coding journey.”

Wow I think this is gross mis-understanding the cultural impact of entertainment. She also mis-understands how deep games are related to human development. Whenever people tell me “I’m sorry, I just don’t like games” — I always say, “there hasn’t been a game made for you”. How can you be human and not like games?

Games are how humans develop. One of the first things a baby learns (object permanences) is through a game: peek-a-boo. When learning new things, it is objective, progression, achievement, completion, all things games have.

This is the very reason why we need diverse voices in gaming. So, thank you.

P.S. I do not understand how working in a masculine industry is selfish. No one would say that about a man working in a feminine industry.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
