Straight White Male Gamer-Checklist

Jonathan McIntosh, einer der Produzenten der Tropes vs Women in Video Games-Webserie, schreibt auf Polygon eine Privilegien-Checkliste für Straight White Male-Zocker. Ich bin die Liste mal durchgegangen, stimmt komplett alles. Sollte man so einigen Leuten an die Stirn tackern.

- Complete strangers generally do not send me unsolicited images of their genitalia or demand to see me naked on the basis of being a male gamer.
- In multiplayer games I can be pretty sure that conversations between other players will not focus on speculation about my "attractiveness" or "sexual availability" in real-life.
- If I choose to point out sexism in gaming, my observations will not be seen as self-serving, and will therefore be perceived as more credible and worthy of respect than those of my female counterparts, even if they are saying the exact same thing.
