I’ve always felt a bit self conscious about wearing any game related clothing or accessories because I think too much of what others think. I’ve heard of awful things happening to girls and women who have worn e.g. a Kirby hat or an assassin’s Creed school bag. For example “I bet you haven’t even played that game you attention whore!” Or some muttering about being a show off gamer girl in desperate need for recognition. And that fucking sucks! Boys have much less or no problems like these and that’s just wrong. Not that boys should receive such sucky comments either of course.
But as I am getting dangerously older I’m caring less and less about some asshat’s ignorant blathering, and wearing more and more game stuff regardless. I just wish the younger and especially the more shy and tender gals wouldn’t have to worry if someone is or is not going to say something mean to them just because they wear a Fallout t-shirt and have the audacity of being a girl gamer. I’m sure the said phenomenon is getting rarer all the time but this still happens so yeah, shut the fuck up if you got nothing nice to say. Or off with your heads it is!
With love, your queen.
