Gentlemen Exclude Women From Gaming For Their Own Protection

One news story doing the rounds is a Battlefield 3 launch event in Texas that has banned women from attending. Initially it was on the grounds of not wanting to expose women to “immature, misogynistic male-gamers” before unashamedly backpedalling revising their position to the event being a “gentleman’s retreat“.

Others have addressed the matter more seriously, but this is now my vision of Battlefield 3 players in action:
