Men backlash at women-only gaming event, canceled because of it
Gaming Ladies, a Spanish gaming event, was announced yesterday to highlight the greatest female members of the gaming industry. And, unsurprisingly, some dudes on the internet complained enough to cancel it.
Members of a website called Forocoches threatened to occupy the event, some going as far as to threaten dressing up as trans women to gain entry.
After enough pressure was put on, the event was canceled.
Unfortunate, really. The event was set to take place in Barcelona in King’s offices. Four panels were set, each of them celebrating women in the industry.
Pro-tip gentlemen, bite your tongue next time.
