Today gamers had a new talking point. On a couple of fora, gamers have expressed their outrage at why the MSSA should hold leagues and championships just for female gamers.
So it is true for gaming!
The achievements of female gamers are often attacked by various male gamers in an attempt to diminish their achievements in what seems to be a puerile display of jealousy.
Not only that, but the games being promoted often do not express the female gamer's story.
Most of the games are written using the male experience, designed by men and programmed by men.
As a result, the game that comes out does not reflect the female gamer's life experiences.
So with so much still being unknown about the differences between males and females, how can one claim that both genders are the same?
But more than that, why are there male gamers who have taken such affront to separate leagues and championships for women.
Is it not great that double the amount of people can benefit from the advantages?
Is it not great that both males and females have the opportunity to equally represent South Africa?
Why would any man want to deny a female the opportunities that representing South Africa affords them?
What could be the possible reason for one half of the population to deny the other half the opportunity to represent South Africa?
The heated outrage by a few gamers certainly makes you question their motives, does it not?
Could it just be that those that are upset just do not want to share?
