you might be a teabagger if...

Have you ever wondered why “tea bagger” is an insult, yet “tea bagging” as an insult is entirely contextual? Although it is still weird to have it happen to my avatar when she dies in the fashion of a clumsy n00b because someone took BR and made her use the stupid needler. There are many unexplored ideas of gender assumption and construction there. Does the color of one’s body armor signify gender? Or are all Halo warriors male by nature, even when women are playing? Is there a difference to how gender plays out in MMORPGs?

Should I teach a class on gender and video gaming?
