I’m not a gamer. I play The Sims and occasionally Super Mario Bros. And Tetris. I love me some Tetris.
But even though I’m not a hardcore gamer, I hardcore love the recent rant by reviewer Bob “MovieBob” Chipman about sexism in gaming and nerd culture.
(BTW, I found this thanks to Rusty’s twitter feed. I hardcore love him too.)
MovieBob’s land-speed record dialogue and series of quick cuts are light, occasionally humourous and SO BANG ON, I want to applaud at my computer screen. In five-minutes he’s managed to cover the salient points of:
- Why sexual and other forms of harassment sucks.
- Why deflecting/defending harassment is the height of douchebaggery.
Check it! (You’ll have to sit through an ad beginning, but it’s short and kind of funny).
Are you a gamer? A nerd ? Both? What do you think of MovieBob’s criticisms? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments!
