    About wundergeek

    I’m an occasional game illustrator, and game designer, long-time LARPer, and player of tabletop roleplaying games (mostly indie games). I have a terminal addiction to board games. I also play both PC and console games – mainly RPGs of all stripes, but I do enjoy puzzle games like Katamari as well. My main source of gaming notoriety, however, is the feminist gaming blog Go Make Me a Sandwich. In addition to being a cranky feminist blogger, I am a photographer and somewhat half-assed writer living in the wilds of Canada with a wonderful spouse and two slightly broken cats.

    I am tired.

    by  • March 7, 2013 • Essays • Comments Off on I am tired.

    I am tired of rape culture in the gaming world. I am tired of having men be the arbiters of who gets to be a “real” gamer. I am tired of sometimes remaining silent because I don’t want to be dismissed as “that feminist who only talks about rape culture”. I am tired of...
