My friend, Titpinions and I were talking about this very subject while we were watching SNL. Not only is this gruesome fact self-replicating but it also uses those same lines of connection (male dominated hiring, networking, and stories) to hide itself. When men look around them and see other men working with them, see older men leaving the workforce only to be replaced by younger men it sets a precedent.
Stepping beyond my reach as a artist, a writer, and a designer for a moment, I want to state my commitment to creating games that help embody and educate players on themes of civic intelligence, many of which are centered around Gender and Sex equality. I also want to encourage any and all of my readers to point out when I overstep my lines.
