Again Let Us Contemplate Why There Are Not More Girl Gamers

The print version of the well-known gaming magazine EGM (Electronic Gaming Monthly) folded earlier this year, and rather than a refund for their subscriptions, its readers have just begun receiving issues of Maxim instead.

It seems that this first replacement issue comes with a note letting subscribers know they can opt for a prorated refund instead of more issues of the not-completely-nude-but-still-smutty men's mag, but this option means little, since they've already sent a message to each and every one of their female subscribers that their only important readers were dudes who like boobies.
Also not wanted: Gay male gamers and feminist straight dudez. But the industry isn't rife with misogyny and homophobia, we SWEARS it!
