With the start of February upon us, I’d like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank each and everyone one of you for your support these past two months. It’s been one hell of a ride for such a short amount of time, but without your enthusiastic rallying, FemHype wouldn’t exist right now. I’m humbled by the response and more determined than ever to see this little project grow. When I asked if this was a space you wanted, you responded with a resounding YES!
FemHype is yours as much as it’s mine. Let’s continue building this incredibly diverse, supportive community of gamers, okay? Cool. Now on to our weekly Twitter roundup!

suddenly occurs to me: gamers who hate politics in their games see gaming as a bubble that needs to stay unaffected by progress in society

Reminder: Coding use to be "women's work" and men only became interested once it was profitable. They let us build it then stole it from us.

Male characters: described by what they do.
Female characters: described by who they're connected to (wife/mother/girlfriend).

I'd say SJWs are the true gamers: Asking society to fix the imbalances in the game is what a gamer applying gaming to life would look like.

There's no losing when it comes to adding diversity to the art of gaming. It's not a zero sum game, no matter what some ppl think.

Worth remembering: The reason I've received 43 death threats in 4 months is my advocacy for women in the game industry.
