- There is little evidence linking video games to "toxic #masculinity" or #sexism toward women.
- Moral panics and prejudice toward #gaming communities remain common.
- A new report repeats familiar patterns of #MoralPanic and misinformation about games and gamers.
- Advocating for egalitarian representations of women in games is a worthwhile cause, but it must be undertaken honestly.
I disagree slightly on the point about sexualization of clothes. I know that this author was just reporting the data on that particular point, rather than addressing it, but I think it's worth pointing out that the clothes that are considered sexy on a man aren't generally referred to as "sexualized." I think it would be hard to argue that a shirtless man wearing combat pants and boots would be considered very sexually appealing to most straight women.
