If You Have A Son Who Plays Video Games, You Better Make Sure He Doesn’t Do Any Of This

Statistics show that the ratio of male to female gamers is actually pretty evenly split. But despite those trusty ol' facts, anonymous gamers are often assumed to be male. So yeah, video games may be easier to play if you're a dude ... but not because you're better at them.

A wee little note about this comic: Nope, it is not saying that all male gamers are inconsiderate, assuming jerks, with no exceptions. But it is offering a personal perspective for folks to consider. Are you a male gamer? Maybe you're one of the good ones. But this shitty culture of assumed male superiority in gaming is definitely something to keep in mind when you're doin' your thing — and, hopefully, even something to actively work against.
