1reasonwhy

W odpo­wie­dzi na pro­ste pyta­nie Luke’a Crane’a „Dla­cze­go tak nie­wie­le kobiet two­rzy gry?” na twit­te­rze poja­wił się hash­tag #1reasonwhy, pod któ­rym ogrom­na licz­ba kobiet pisze o sek­si­zmie w prze­my­śle zwią­za­nym z gra­mi (i wideo, i plan­szo­we, i fabu­lar­ne).

Na ten temat TU,TUTU.

Wypo­wie­dzi twór­czyń gier fabu­lar­nych i nar­ra­cyj­nych oraz gra­czek.

Poszło falą.

#1reasonwhy — bo muszę się oba­wiać nagon­ki za każ­dym razem, gdy piszę na dowol­ny erpe­go­wy temat.

  • Becau­se conven­tions, whe­re desi­gners are cele­bra­ted, are unsa­fe pla­ces for me. Real­ly. I’ve been gro­ped. #1reasonwhy
  • Becau­se I don’t want to make ano­ther game abo­ut kil­ling and war. Dark is the same as impor­tant to many. Joy­ful is »lame« #1reasonwhy
  • If 1 reason why sca­res you or sur­pri­ses you, fol­low more women who design games. Listen to them. Hire them. Pay atten­tion. Be respect­ful.
  • Also #1reasonwhy is the reason I blog abo­ut games, but am never bra­ve eno­ugh to make and post things I want to make for games
  • Becau­se I’m sexu­al­ly haras­sed as a games jour­na­list, and get­ting it as a games desi­gner com­po­unds the mise­ry. #1reasonwhy
  • Becau­se I was told women women are shit­ty desi­gners. #1reasonwhy
  • Becau­se I’m told women only make „emo­tio­nal” games and „don’t know how to wri­te [insert gen­re here.]” #1reasonwhy
  • Becau­se cri­ti­ci­zing the cul­tu­re and asking for chan­ge makes me „aga­inst eve­ry­one else” and „a divi­si­ve per­son.”#1reasonwhy
  • Eve­ry post‐release posi­ti­ve review I’ve seen of games I’ve designed/published has couched pra­ise for it/me in sexu­al innu­en­do. #1reasonwhy
  • I don’t talk abo­ut the crap I’ve gone thro­ugh in the indie RPG com­mu­ni­ty so new women desi­gners think they’re alo­ne. So I’m #1reasonwhy.
  • Becau­se I’m tired of hearing sim­ple mecha­nics are for girls when they’re writ­ten by a woman, but pra­ised when writ­ten by a dude. #1reasonwhy
  • Becau­se if I make it main­stre­am, my game will get half the pro­mo­tio­nal effort as if it was writ­ten by my boy­friend inste­ad. #1reasonwhy
  • Becau­se if I suc­ce­ed, I’m excep­tio­nal. And if I fail, I’m pro­of that women shouldn’t be in the indu­stry. #1reasonwhy
  • Becau­se men with a tenth of my expe­rien­ce and exper­ti­se feel they can con­de­scend to me. #1reasonwhy
  • Becau­se the moment I’m any­thing less than patient, gene­ro­us, and kind, I’m an angry and unre­aso­na­ble bitch. #1reasonwhy
  • Becau­se if I as a women wri­te a game it will be jud­ge as a „game by women” not just as game. #1reasonwhy
  • Becau­se the air is thick with man­spla­ining. #1reasonwhy
  • If 1 reason why sca­res you or sur­pri­ses you, fol­low more women who design games. Listen to them. Hire them. Pay atten­tion. Be respect­ful.
