Go listen!

September 20, 2009

Finally got a chance to listen to Theory From the Closet’s Podcast on Homesexuality & RPGs, which was fun. It’s a slow start but once Alexander starts in full snark rant, it’s quite entertaining.

I like the fact that he points out the connection of issues of representation, norm vs. othering, tying in both to gender & race as well (and stuff like whitewashing book covers to movies) as well as the ways in which “edgy” is kind of a red flag for how backwards people are at. (I remember a conversation a couple years back where someone asked what I was expecting, and I said, “If gaming could be ONLY as messed up as Hollywood, that’s be a step forward…”)

A damn good show worth listening to.
