Tabletop Gaming and Personal Identity

I wrote a piece of the rad website FemHype on my experience at the Nexus Game Fair outside Milwaukee at the end of June, and my experiences at conventions in general. There’s a lot more to be said about my experiences as a woman that grew up gaming and going to cons, but I don’t have the time to focus on that right now. Until then, the article will suffice in place of more in depth explorations- Gamemastering Tabletop Sexism: When Conventions Require Defense Tactics.

I will not be returning to Nexus until they have a policy on harassment and a posted stance on what kinds of products are featured at their convention.
