More like 1 in 3, I suspect.

trism has some words of wisdom for (male) gamers who casually throw around words like "violated" and "rape" when they don't like something the GM, or another player, has done.


I, personally, would like to say - to try to call on the attention and compassion due to victims of sexual violence, for emotional pains coming from the failure of voluntary hobby activities and those who design and play them to live up to your high standards of expectation, is severely inappropriate.

The odds are that if you know five female gamers, one of them has been raped or sexually abused in some way. With a penis. Not by making rulings that make no sense, or having their deck shuffled roughly in a card game tournament.

Suck on that statistic for a minute, and then thank God that even 5% of gamers are women.
