It’s no secret that it’s difficult to be a woman in the gaming industry; it’s become a meta circle jerk to even talk about sexism and how it applies to the culture.

Thumbstick Mafia is a partial solution; yes, things have gotten better but we’ve got a long ways to go – in the mean time, what are we going to do about it? I envision TM as a support system and network for women in gaming, particularly black and woc.

No, you don’t have to be black or a poc of color to join and the “requirements” are pretty simple;

  1. Be a woman who identifies as a gamer.
  2. Be open to connecting with more women gamers and fostering relationships on and offline; this includes talking about everything from gaming to streaming strategy. We want this to be a safe space to encourage and motivate each other.
  3. Age does not matter.
  4. All levels of skill welcome and all game genres welcome.

I’m putting together an all woman stream team list and I’m looking for folks who maybe interested. I look forward to talking and playing with you.
