PostSubject: New Study debunks Feminist claims by Gamers   Sun Dec 20, 2015 5:03 pm



Quote :
Persuading the world that video games are sexist and misogynistic has been a defining goal of western feminists over the past few years.

new data on gaming and gamers indicates that these arguments have not been embraced by gamers or the general public. 46 per cent of self-described gamers do not believe that games portray minorities poorly. Minorities who played video games were also disinclined to buy into the progressive games media’s race-baiting. 39 per cent of Hispanic video game players disagreed that games portray minorities poorly, compared to 12 per cent who agreed. 24 per cent of black video game players also disagreed, compared to 15 per cent who agreed.

(...)

Arguments that video games are sexist have also failed to convince a majority of gamers. 35 per cent of gamers disagree that video games portray women poorly, compared to 24 per cent who agree. The general public were found to be mostly undecided on the issue, with 40 per cent saying they weren’t sure and 18 per cent saying that women were not portrayed poorly. Only 14 per cent of the non-gaming public said video games did portray women poorly. Given the non-stop media blitz about video game sexism that occurred in the wake of GamerGate, these are disappointing numbers for the gender warriors.

A final point of interest: Pew found that self-described “gamers” were more likely to be poor and non-white than people who played video games but did not identify as gamers. Just 7 per cent of white respondents used the label “gamer,” compared to 11 per cent of black and 19 per cent of Hispanic respondents. Those who made less than $30,000 per year (the lowest income bracket in the survey) were also most likely to describe themselves as gamers.

When progressive outlets like Polygon and Shitaku – dominated by affluent white males – attack gamers as bigoted, it’s worth remembering that they’re attacking a community that is considerably more diverse, and considerably less privileged, than they are.

Also, if you have any interests, there's also this piece:

On idea of a connection between gaming and sexism in gamers' attitude. The study is focused on German gamers, but that doesn't make it any less relevant.
