A new study published by University of Idaho professor Robin Johnson argues that men who work in video game development, play video games, or who are simply passionate about gaming may in fact be perpetuating “technomasculinity.”


he discovered that “technomasculnity” is rampant in the gaming industry, hurting women and LGBTQ people in the process.


In his study, Johnson traces the development of technomasculinity in men from an early age. One man’s technomasculinity allegedly started when “his father [took] him to his government job and [allowed] him to play simple computer games.”

While fathers are implicated as the catalyst for most men’s technomasculinity, not all are.


Johnson argues that technomasculinity hurts women.

“Gender is socially organized in the West in a hierarchized binary differentiating men and women along supposedly natural or biological masculine and feminine traits,” said Johnson.

“The association between technology, masculinity, and what we think of as skilled work is still fundamental to the gendered division of labor,” and thus, the oppression of women and the gender pay gap, he added.


Yeh yall here arse sexist now and don't you dare think about getting your kind into games and teaching them to play or you're perpetuating the oppression of women.

Imagine spending hours digging through stuff to try and find trash like this to support your worldview. Someone sure has a lot of free time on their hands.

“In popular culture this type of masculinity is often associated with individuals who are highly competent with computers but typically lacking in social or physical skills,” Johnson explained.

Because being technically skilled is seen as masculine, you end up with the following associations: men = masculine = technically skilled, while women women = feminine = not technically skilled... that is a negative consequence.

And what is to be done about this? The combined lack of social skills and social inclusion that leads to to a dependence on technology is predominately experienced by men.
