#1ReasonWhy: Twitter speaks out against gaming sexism
First, the creators of Halo 4 announced a zero-tolerance policy for sexism and other offensive language and behavior on their servers. Then, a loving dad gender-swapped Zelda and Link so his 4-year-old daughter could be the hero, and he shared the code with the Internet.
And yesterday, when a clueless Luke Crane took to Twitter to ask, “why are there so few lady game creators?” Twitter responded, first with, “seriously?” and then with a list of reasons that turned into a literal overnight phenomenon—and led to the creation of a mentorship project.
