The story about a gym’s sign has reinvigorated me and caused me to go back to a well that really needs to be looked at again, the idea that there’s a lot of fit shaming in video gaming that goes completely unchecked.

The long answer…is yeeeeeeeeeesssssssssssss.
This is by no means a shot at Twitch streamers or various eSports leagues and tournaments. It’s just that for whatever reason, I can’t seem to get into that scene…

One side is arguing about historical accuracy, the other is arguing about equality, sexism and all that lovely stuff. Alas, artistic freedom once again is taking a back seat to another pointless war being fought on social media.
An interesting question was posed to me when I was browsing online one day. What gender do I play as when playing video games? It’s actually a little more complex than you’d think.
Apparently “cost per hour” is becoming a problem to some people in the gaming community. The reality? There’s nothing wrong, of course.
