It’s time to flush your stereotypes down the drain.
Congratulations, gamer girls—you’re officially at the top of the food chain when it comes to games. A new study released by the Entertainment Software Association has revealed that adult women now occupy the largest demographic in the gaming industry. Women over 18 made up a whopping 36 percent of the gaming population, followed by adult men at 35 percent.
I cannot wait for men to cry about this
now let’s get more women in development
I’m waiting for some asshole to say “oh but that’s only casuaaaaal phone games.”
I’m going on holiday on weds morn to Copenhagen/Berlin for a few days and I paid for the flights out of my own (very limited) pocket and as my 21st is coming up in a little over a month I decided to ask for spending money from family instead of anything on the day.
Now I get very anxious/embarrassed/shy about asking for anything let alone money. My household had a lot of money issues until recently and I guess that plays a part in it. Anyway I asked my mum to put out the word for me (to my many siblings) over a month ago. She basically sort of forgot and so I spent the last week having to push the issue with her, and it must have seemed really rude on my part to be like ‘I’m going on holiday next week, give me money’ and not even do it myself. But as I said, I feel so so uncomfortable asking I thought it would be okay to get my mum to do so. Last year I did the EXACT same thing and nobody had any issue with it, though it was much more in advance (though as I said, I thought they had been told a long time ago).
But yeah it turns out my mum had mentioned NOTHING to my older sister who on being reminded by my mum today got really angry at my ‘rudeness’. Which has only added to my already existing anxiety about asking for anything and now I feel really upset that she thinks of me behaving that way.
So now I’m all teary and I don’t even want to go on holiday anymore. Like I feel as if I don’t deserve it. I’ve sent her a text apologising but she hasn’t even replied…
I feel awful.
suddenly feeling really upset and panicky
