Adult women are now the largest demographic in gaming →

Congratulations, gamer girls—you’re officially at the top of the food chain when it comes to games. A new study released by the Entertainment Software Association has revealed that adult women now occupy the largest demographic in the gaming industry. Women over 18 made up a whopping 36 percent of the gaming population, followed by adult men at 35 percent. 

….You know, as a Literature student I find the way the commentary written for this absolutely hilarious. It uses hyperbolic language such as “whopping” to accentuate the figures in the article to make it appear that “adult female gamers” are a massive majority.

Then you look at the statistics. It may debunk stereotypes slightly, but having a margin of 1% is not “whopping” - it’s not even “great”. Especially when you consider than male gamers as a whole are still a majority (52%). This article also doesn’t give numbers, nor the size of the study pools. For all we know, they only had a pool of 1000 people which isn’t a proper scientific study when assessing a national census. It’s nice to see that female gamers are equalling out to male gamers, but let’s not arbitarily make this a war of the sexes. xD

The language in the article is not an “arbitrary war of the sexes.” There is a war of the sexes in gaming, but it’s one that male gamers (as a group) have been waging against women for quite some time, with harassment, death threats, rape threats.  (Please read this in particular. You’ll notice they were forced to disable comments. Can you guess why?) Gamers and game companies have been long claiming that women flat out don’t play games at all, and thus don’t count as gamers, are not part of the audience, don’t deserve input, don’t deserve safe gaming spaces, don’t deserve more games that are made with women in mind (or at the very least, games that have more playable women characters and less overall sexualized violence towards women). This has been going on for years. Women who speak out about sexism in games, again, receive rape and death threats. 

This study doesn’t prove women are a huge majority over men, but when women are completely dismissed in general, a 1% margin IS a huge deal. It shows numbers well high enough to counter the “girls don’t game” myth. It shows that adult women outnumber teenage males, so gaming companies can no longer act like teen males are the only demographic worth pursuing. When half the overall audience is women, even though male gamers have long insisted that women gamers don’t count at all, that’s huge. That’s a whopping great big huge deal.

Here’s a thing I’ve had around in my head for a while!

Okay, so I’m pretty sure that by now everyone at least is aware of Steampunk, with it’s completely awesome Victorian sci-fi aesthetic. But what I want to see is Solarpunk – a plausible near-future sci-fi genre, which I like to imagine as based on updated Art Nouveau, Victorian, and Edwardian aesthetics, combined with a green and renewable energy movement to create a world in which children grow up being taught about building electronic tech as well as food gardening and other skills, and people have come back around to appreciating artisans and craftspeople, from stonemasons and smithies, to dress makers and jewelers, and everyone in between. A balance of sustainable energy-powered tech, environmental cities, and wicked cool aesthetics. 

A lot of people seem to share a vision of futuristic tech and architecture that looks a lot like an ipod – smooth and geometrical and white. Which imo is a little boring and sterile, which is why I picked out an Art Nouveau aesthetic for this.

With energy costs at a low, I like to imagine people being more inclined to focus their expendable income on the arts!

Aesthetically my vision of solarpunk is very similar to steampunk, but with electronic technology, and an Art Nouveau veneer.

So here are some buzz words~

Natural colors!
Art Nouveau!
Handcrafted wares!
Tailors and dressmakers!
Streetcars!
Airships!
Stained glass window solar panels!!!
Education in tech and food growing!
Less corporate capitalism, and more small businesses!
Solar rooftops and roadways!
Communal greenhouses on top of apartments!
Electric cars with old-fashioned looks!
No-cars-allowed walkways lined with independent shops!
Renewable energy-powered Art Nouveau-styled tech life!

Can you imagine how pretty it would be to have stained glass windows everywhere that are actually solar panels? The tech is already headed in that direction!  Or how about wide-brim hats, or parasols that are topped with discreet solar panel tech incorporated into the design, with ports you can stick your phone charger in to?

JOINTS IN MOTION

As said by IFL science

Cameron Drake of San Francisco has created a collection of magnificent images showing joints in motion. He was aided by orthopedic physician Dr. Noah Weiss and the finished product is completely amazing. If you’d like to know more about the project, please check out Drake’s blog.
