Not Comics: Andrew Todd On Gaming Culture Misogyny

I know almost nothing about gaming culture and care about games basically not at all, but I found this survey-the-recent-landscape article by Andrew Todd an interesting one for its ruthless focus on misogyny, abuse and acting out within that larger community. It might help some folks that have a hard time processing the awful behavior that takes place in comics culture to see the same kinds of things taking place to another group of people coalesced around an entertainment medium. There's a lot about it that's familiar, and nearly all of it is distressing.
