I made this post strictly to say to fellow bloggers/vloggers/gamers: your voices matter, especially when it comes to the social issues that affect gaming.
I especially want to direct that statement at men in the community who brave the topic of sexism and sexualization in games, or who are […]
Heart of the Swarm, the latest installment in the Starcraft 2 story, has been both mildly entertaining and mildly disappointing. I enjoyed the campaign, but I was left bored with the artists’ efforts to make Kerrigan sexy for the traditional male audience.
Sarah Kerrigan, the main character in this chapter, was once a babe and […]
Don’t let the title fool you: this is not intended strictly for men. It is, however, a question or two guys ask on the subject of sexism in gaming. Maybe I can make a trend of this by periodically publishing those questions and getting readers and bloggers to help answer them.
Today, here’s my inspirational […]
Well, I guess that article I recently published on ethics has some relevance to the terrible news of late. Right now in the U.S. we are asking ourselves what went wrong, and what continues to go wrong, to make massacres like the one in Connecticut occur. We must be doing something […]
Malcanis over at The Mittani wrote a brilliant article last week about how the player community in EVE interacts. In it, he invoked the ideas of Hitler’s Big Lie to explain how the community deceives itself into taking sides and demonizing others. Malcanis gave a very eloquent summary of the principles […]

But fantasy is not created from nothing; at least in a limited sense, fantasy is a “recollection” of a world we have lost. It is a psychoanalytic truism […]
Editor’s Note: I have divided this post into pages, hopefully to make it more digestible. Some topics just can’t be compressed and summed up in a few sweeping statements and paragraphs, so I’ve attempted to back up every point I intended to make. I do apologize this couldn’t be shorter, but hopefully the read will […]
Before I give my own thoughts on this, I want to prompt the any and all of you in the community on what this […]
This article is a guest post by one of my dearest friends, Maligma. A person of color, she offered me her impressions and thoughts on Tyrael during a game session of Diablo 3. I was so struck by her impressions I asked her to write them down so I could share them with […]
