In episode 11, Rhonda and I talk to writer, mother, gamer, and Ph.D. candidate Sandi Glahn. We discuss the evolution and origins of gender stereotypes and gender roles.
We talk in depth in this episode about the cultural differences of gender stereotypes, how they’ve changed and not changed over many years, and about our own experiences (all three of us) bucking against gendered expectations. We also touch some more on the use of female images in the marketing of E3 and some of the topics we will cover in upcoming episodes, including casual vs hardcore definitions and gamer girl on gamer girl hate.
We also share listener feedback from our cyber-mailbag about avatar names and website feedback on Episode 8 – Endorphin Dude.
