I’ve been getting pretty frustrated recently because I’m finding that online, tech related things seem to be only targeted at men.
I’m not sexist – the problem is that I want those things too. Things advertised for women are the stereotypical jewellery, perfume, knick knacks that, while sometimes useful, make for boring gifts for others, and boring things to browse for myself.
The straw that broke the camel’s back….I complained about this on Facebook and a friend responded along the lines… “are you talking about MYER, because I saw that and it pissed me off too”. No, I wasn’t talking about one of our largest department stores, I hadn’t realised how widespread this sexism is! I hate the assumption that women aren’t interested in gadgets. Why do guys get the cool stuff?
So the purpose of this blog is to write about things that I care about, specifically games and tech, and relate them to women. This blog is for girls who like to game, girls who don’t really understand gaming but are interested, awesome guys who have female friends and partners who they want to share this stuff with.
