A little under a year ago, I was throwing around the idea of writing about sexism in games. Just sexism. Eventually, this idea evolved into the much broader topic of discrimination and under-representation in games—not a small subject, by any means. Over the course of the months since, I wrote, scrapped, rewrote, edited, cut, re-edited, recut, rewrote, and finally completed an article that is now known as The Straight White Guy Industry, which critiques the widespread racism, sexism, homophobia, and other forms of discrimination, objectification, and ignorance within the video game industry and community.
