    Lots of girls and woman play games, but the myth that “all” gamers are male persists. It really boggles my mind. Making female gamers invisible by denying their existence won’t help anything. Games should be more marketed to women and girls and some of the ridiculous sexist content (e.g. bikini-sized ‘armour’ on female characters) needs to go away… but even before all this happens, we’re playing the games. Don’t worry.
