deal with it

"Big boobs, long legs, slaughters armies single-handedly" *ahem*

It all started when John Walker of Rock, Paper, Shotgun wrote an article on why they won't be shutting up about sexism in gaming any time soon. Now, I haven't read the article completely - being a woman and a gamer I'm *cough* somewhat familiar with the topic and figure that it's more aimed at those less familiar. However I did skim it, and it does acknowledge that in an environment where sexism is the norm, chances are a male voice is more likely to be listened to. This may be somewhat problematic, but it encourages more men to speak up. The article in general seems pretty on the mark, and I'd recommend reading it if you are interested in such topics.
