TABLETOP GAMING ALSO HAS A HARASSMENT PROBLEM

From Vox:

Tabletop gaming is the gaming community’s older but not necessarily wiser sibling. From Dungeons & Dragons to Munchkin, Magic: The Gathering, Settlers of Catan, and countless other “titles,” board games, role-playing games, and card games have spawned an entire adjacent subculture of geekdom ranging from casual local game nights to intense convention tournaments.

The tabletop gaming community doesn’t necessarily overlap with the massive, amorphous communities that make up online video game culture. Because of the separation between the two, tabletop gaming has largely sidestepped the discussions of misogyny and sexism that have contributed to the ongoing controversy surrounding the Gamergate movement.

Until now.
