Normally I would be covering one of my favorite events: pre-release. It’s everything I love about Magic. You crack packs, play with new cards and get excited about what changes are in store. While searching the tweets for stories of victory and defeat, I came across a conversation that I couldn’t overlook even on pre-release weekend. Women in gaming has been a hot button topic recently–especially with the backlash and harassment towards Anita Sarkeesian. I have been lucky during my years of gaming to only encounter a few real “charmers.” Some of my other girl gamer friends have not been so lucky. This issue surfaced again when Brian Kibler tweeted a photo of a girl at his pre-release. He was immediately bombarded with sexual comments about the girl in the photo. Much ado about nothing or an issue in need of fixing?
