Episode 10 – Role Player Jerry: Identifying with Drag Play Embassy

Check out this week’s episode of Game On Girl where we talk to Jerry about his experiences as a role player and a male gamer who plays female avatars. Jerry is an Anthropology student and a writer at P4. – Gain Experience. Jerry is a role player and an artist, all aspects of his offline life that impact how he approaches gaming.

Along with a great conversation about role play characters, we share some feedback from episode 9, Happily After End Game, and a fantastic Twitter conversation about sexualized female and male avatars that evolved out of our short episode on the contrasting female images that were seen at E3.

We’d love to hear your feedback about this episode and Jerry’s character creation process. Drop us a Tweet @game_on_girl or leave a comment here.

Studying and writing about geeks and geek culture is Regina’s favorite thing to do when she’s not reading student papers, dancing an excessive amount of calories away, or chasing after her daughter. Inclined towards mobile and social gaming online, Regina also loves a good round of 7 Wonders, Qwirkle, Small World, or Lords of Waterdeep. Someday, she hopes to actually take part in a D&D campaign so she can officially “roll” a character and role play her as a devious, highly intelligent mischief maker, which would be nothing like she is in real life.

  1. The proposed show topic of girl on girl hate/how girls effect gaming for other girls sounds like a rich subject. I'll definitely be listening for that discussion!

  2. Thanks for listening and taking the time to comment, carpswamp! It was certainly a surprise for me that it came out of a discussion about sexualized avatars but I am delighted that the issue arose. I think there is a lot to be said about it. It's an issue for gamer girls and girls in general, I think. We need to stop hating on each other and supporting each other more.

  3. Hey, forgot to mention that I listened to this. XD Thanks again for the opportunity! I suppose I should submit Karah for your avatar project! 🙂

  4. You absolutely should! I thought you would have been the first to submit. Hey you could even submit one of your drawings and one avatar of the same character. That would be really interesting!

    Thanks, again, for being on the show. 🙂
