GenCon article

I just finished reading this article on gamers and GenCon. I am not amused. While overall the article was positive, the author put a lot of focus on the gay angle of the group he was following, making it sound like gamer guys are gay or so afraid of women that they are asexual.

I really don't know what bearing the subject's sexual orientation had to do with GenCon, but the author mentioned it repeatedly, implying GenCon is a pimply unwashed gay orgy. Okay, maybe that's oversimplifying, but that's what a "normal" non-gamer would probably take from the article.

As if I'm not having enough of a challenge in ever having a date again, I really don't need the "gamers are gay" stereotype circulating.
