my actual writing, if you're curious

It’s also worth remembering that the gaming community is an emotionally charged one - we’re defensive because we’re used to being vilified by mainstream media, we’re loyal to games, characters and developers who have brought us so much pleasure and we, like all humans, fear what we do not immediately understand. I feel as though these aspects of the person who self-identifies as a gamer, as I do, probably act as an accelerant for the deep-seated, unresolved negative attitudes to women that are part of our social heritage, and to say this all plays a part in the tone and intensity of the negative reaction to people who write the sorts of things I’m writing today is an understatement.
