Why I need……

Gaia LogoMy name is Crymson Pleasure of Real Women of Gaming and I need feminism. I’ve been an avid gamer since I was a child and I am sick and tired of being told to prove myself. As a gamer, as a geek, I am more hardcore and passionate about my D&D characters than most people are about anything.

I need it so men will stop asking me if my breasts look as nice as my avatars. So I stop getting asked to send pictures to prove I’m not a guy playing a girl character in World of Warcraft. That is not my husband whooping someone’s ass in Halo with me on the headset. Bitch, I’m just that good. That I don’t play trading card games because my husband asked me to. Goddess forbid I actually enjoy something on my own or have my own thoughts, opinions, ideas or *GASP* interest.

Because I’m not some 400 lbs hermit with 50 cats playing a game, who has never had a boyfriend or sex. Nor am I a whore/slut that will date/have sex with you just because I happen to be female and playing a game. Also, saying no doesn’t make me a cold frigid hateful bitch; it makes me a human being with a choice. I didn’t pick up my boyfriend/husband/brother/friend’s controller and, no sir, I’m buying this video game for me, not the man of the house. Promptly and quickly shove it up your ass.

I’m not a man hater. I’m a troll hater. I want the same praise that you’d give anyone for doing well. I want to not fear talking over the headset because I know the second I am recognized as being a women, I am instantly a target for sexism/hatred/some weird fantasy. I also expect the same shit talk without my gender being brought into play.

I want to play without fear of being outed or targeted. I want to play.

So shut up and play.

About Crymson Pleasure

I am one geeky woman filled with the knowledge of role playing systems and video games long forgotten. Also known as, Your Vampire Goddess. (There is even a drink named after me) I am the Head Goddess of Real Women of Gaming. I play video games, trading card games, board games, role playing games/table top games. I don't even have an inner geek, I wear it loud and proud. I'm attached to several fandoms (Doctor Who; Sherlock; Supernatural; Harry Potter; Hunger Games; Firefly; Star Trek; Star Wars) And that doesn't include my anime obsessions (Deathnote; Ouran High school Host Club; Black Butler; Bleach; Inuyasha; Blood+) to name a few, how much I am into Cosplay, Renaissance festivals, Tinker Bell, Tattoos (I have several), Goth/Steampunk anything. You name it and I seriously obsess over it.
