This post is two-fold. First, for all the real gaming girls out there I will say that I respect the ever-loving hell out of you. This society may be run by nerds now, but I am sure some of you get plenty of flak from other groups of women sometimes for what you love to do. Nothing beats having a good video game conversation with a lady that knows her shit.
Second, this goes out to the guys who walk around and make fun of women who have video game themed t-shirts or other apparel and you question if they are just wearing it to be “cool” in today’s nerd world. Be careful what you speak out of your mouth.
Rae Johnston is the lifestyle editor at Techlife.net and someone made the mistake of questioning her gaming knowledge one fateful day while waiting for coffee.
Snarky guy in coffee queue eyes off my Bioshock Infinite t-shirt, suggests I “probably haven’t even played it”. So I told him the ending.

For those asking: His face showed confusion, sadness & defeat. I then collected my coffee & walked away smiling. Needed a killer soundtrack.
