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;
- Be a woman who identifies as a gamer.
- 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.
- Age does not matter.
- 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.
