Women Who Play Games Shun ‘Gamer’ Label

How did the term "gamer" turn into a bad thing? I mean, I know how it all started but it just seems so unbelievable that people would take the word and twist it into something people "shun."

That’s according to a new Pew Research Center survey that found 48 percent of women play video games, just shy of the 50 percent of men who play. The gamer identity was far less attractive to women, however, with 6 percent of them adopting the label compared with 15 percent of men.
