I appreciate the level headedness in this article. The whole debate has merit and gaming does have a way to go to be an equal place for everyone but I don't know if it's disproportionally different than the rest of society. Instead of negativity about the lack of female characters, let's celebrate and encourage more developers to have female characters. Demonizing a whole group of people (gamers), most of whom have no idea any of this is going on, does little to further the discussion. Thank you for the article.
