Male Toxicity in Video Games
Video games – and gamers in general – often receive a bad reputation that is largely unwarranted. As being violent – easily counterracted with such games as Thief, which espouses a non-violent approach, or Mario Kart, or Final Fantasy, which is often characterized with more video than actual game play these days .
But perhaps the worst aspect of video games comes in the form of online play – and the hatred and bile spewed forth by many members of the gaming community.
Many male members of the gaming community.
Popular discourse would have you believing that this discourse is exclusively targeted at women, however. That the male portion of the gaming community presents a united front against women, and women alone.
And this is simply not true.
