These are all of the reasons I mostly stopped gaming. They are why I don’t go alone to conventions when I cosplay. This is why I buy my games online or ask a friend to get them for me. I wish I was built to take on the attitudes myself, once upon a time I thought I was, but it’s hard and it is exhausting. So thank you for writing this. Men like you are why I have been willing to get back into gaming lately. Men who back me up when I say “Dude, that’s not cool and it kind of freaks me out” when someone makes a rape joke instead of telling me I am too sensitive. So seriously, thank you for this.
