    Default Gaming With Women - Less Debauchery???

    Good read.

    I think the "We need more nudes" post (found in the Queen Miela loading screen thread) which was highlighted by Ronin's comment that nudists are offended by the lack of nudity in this game could benefit from reading this.

    These two comments stand out for me:

    "I've been leery about transitioning into video games because the culture over there is a lot more blatant and active in how many sex trolls they have," she said.
    "I was discussing a potential contract with somebody and the guy right next to me is talking about -- to quote him -- 'the **** and ***' on this particular model. And he's going on and on and on about this," she said. "This is wrong."

    [...] while they comprise just 30 percent of those who play hard-core violent games like Microsoft's "Halo 4" on game consoles.
    Yahoo. Never disappointing when you expect full snowflake quality.

    Old news.

    Despite gaming being seen as a male activity, female players now make up about 40% of the gaming population.The study looked at gender differences in more than 2,400 gamers playing EverQuest II.
