Foul language and harassment in the games industry? I'm shocked. Perhaps it's just due to white male privilege that I've never been called a "gaaaayyyy nig faggz" while playing online games?

[edit: sarcasm. Like anyone who's ever delivered a headshot, I've been told "fu homo chink".]

The games industry does not refer to anybody who plays games but refers to the development of games; in the same way the automobile industry does not refer to anybody who drives a car.

No, I'm white, male, and straight, and I get that about once every ten frags or so, more so if I shut out the round.
