I think it is really interesting to bring a gendered analysis into this topic, because like you wrote, there is a huge difference in treatment. Do you plan on interviewing or observing women gamers for your project? I think it would be important to get different women’s perspectives on gaming online. It seems in terms of the discourse around girl gamers, you can’t win. Take the game seriously and try to be “one of the guys,” you’re harassed, not taken seriously, and objectified. Turn that into your own capital advantage/power? You are at fault for any harassment directed at you.
