Time flies when you’re gaming! Literally. I just sank 8 hours into Mass Effect 2. With another week gone, I’d like to take a moment to warmly welcome all of our new readers. It’s with your help that we’re slowly but surely building this little community, and I’m so excited to see where the journey takes us! If you haven’t already, pop on over to our new FAQ page and drop a comment here if you have any questions that weren’t answered.
Without further ado, here are the 140-word quips and rallying calls that defined the gaming industry this week. Never forget that you’re not alone in this fight. More and more incredible people are joining, lending their voices to a wide-reaching, industry-shaking cause. FemHype stands with you!

Misogyny shouldnt be "safe" anywhere. They shouldn't get to feel any place is "theirs". Not games, not comics, not sports, not tech

If it’s extreme to think women and minorities should feel welcome in spaces they helped build, then I’ll gladly take the title of extremist.

I think it's important to note that GG wasn't born from nothing. Games culture allows these ways of thinking, always has, still does.

Sometimes I think the "solidarity" of rallying against harassment has crowded out our ability to support talent & new voices. This is v. bad

@mechapoetic a healthy attitude would be them just playing the games they like. Instead: FURY that a mom on an iphone gets to be a "gamer"

Pro tip: if you support a hate and harassment campaign, good people don’t want to play your game. That’s not blacklisting. That’s ETHICS.
