Notes from PAX Panels: Gender in Video Games

I didn’t write anything down on “You Game Like a Girl: Tales of Trolls & White Knights” because I was too busy raising my hand or shouting my assent with the panelists when they asked things like “Do you go to conventions wearing nerdy t-shirts or cosplay to get the attention of men?”


The number of men in the audience was reassuring. One doesn’t often see male feminists, unfortunately, but a great many of them attended this panel rather than doing any of the other things they could’ve been doing during the time slot. It’s a start.
