Do you like games? Video Games specifically. Yes? A bit? Well let’s pretend you are a hardcore gamer. When you’re trying to find video games you go down the boys aisle of Target because the people who put them there think boys will enjoy them more than girls.

Well, that’s not true! Forty-eight percent of gamers are Women! Hmmmmmm!

Since the games are down the boys aisle people think that video games are for boys. That’s just sexist!

Girls just don’t converse about it as much as boys do. When video games started coming out for kids on DVD, a lot of the games were about “Destruction,” which people thought boys liked. But girls also took interest in that, not just boys.

Some colleges are considering if video games should be considered a sport. Do you think we should make video games a sport? Tell me in the comments! <:3

    Dash, you are so right! It is extremely sexist that all video games including action or violence are in only boy’s aisle. Since I myself am a HUGE gamer and love playing video games, it is a huge offense toward me! To be honest, I have no shame in walking down boy’s aisles looking for video games. Overall, great job!!!!

    If 48% of gamers are women that means there are still less female gamers then there are male gamers. Male gamers are 52% percent of all gamers and that is why people at stores put video games down the mens aisle at stores.

    Lonnie, you are true about there being a bigger percent of male gamers, but that doesn’t mean that video games with action should be in the men’s aisle, because some females still love to game, such as myself. Just because more men play videogames then women is definitely not a reason for videogames with violence to be in men’s aisles. I agree with Dash completely!!

    WOW! You did a great job on saying that girls can be just like boys. Great review.

    My cousin and I play video games all the time. Also the difference between women gamers and men gamers is only 4 percent so there should be lots of video games in the girls aisles too!!!
