you, like everyone else need to feel important.

I remember the days when games were about worlds you could explore and about being good, and not about who's got representation and gender this and sexuality that. I miss those days. from Anonymous

Those days miss you, too. I recently found a yellowed letter under one of the floorboards, and it was addressed to you and signed by those days with a tear-stained kiss of lipstick.

Meanwhile, in the present, those of us who work in the industry and who are—amazingly—able to consider more than one idea at the same time, will continue to create good games about worlds you can explore AND occasionally talk about inclusivity.

If you are feeling compassion fatigue, I think it might be okay to sit out those discussions, at least until you get your strength back. While it will be tough not having you available for close consultation, somehow we will soldier on.

Imagine Mulder and Scully at a restaurant. Someone starts to have an allergic reaction to something. The person they’re with says, “IS THERE A DOCTOR HERE?!”

Mulder looks over at Scully in slow motion. The music swells. Scully rises.

Her time has come.

She is a medical doctor.


  • Friend:So how do you think you've changed since high school?
  • Me:Well I became aware of oppressive power structures and how we are complicit in them and now seek to dismantle them.
  • Friend:...
  • Me:I also think I got hotter.

I want support for ugly girls and lazy girls and girls that can’t ever get their eyeliner right. I want feminism that includes girls who are too big or too black to be on body positive blogs. 

I want girls with acne scars and girls who don’t “pass” and girls with facial hair. I want girls who are, in fact, man hating lesbians. I want poor girls.

I need the girls who never took a course in gender studies but who still know the way that society treats them is bullshit. 

It doesn’t feel like a revolution when we’re only showing more of the same, when we only raise up the voices of some women.

I need to do better. We all need to do better.
