To an outsider, the video game community may appear to consist of childish and immature antics involving sexism, racism, homophobia, transphobia and the like. To a certain extent, that is true, and probably always will be, but for those who care to give their attention may notice how the gaming community has in fact matured over the years in regard to these subjects. While these various forms of unacceptance are still prominent within the community, they are not, by any means, widely accepted. Video game critics, Youtube commentators, and journalists alike have all stepped up to the plate to voice their concerns and defend those who are all too often targeted by those unwilling to accept people outside of their social comfort zones. Critiques of race and gender equality, as well as LGBT acceptance have since risen to prominence, not only in regards to gamers, but developers and other industry figures as well. This can be seen as one of the positive ways in which the video games industry has matured as a whole (or in the process of maturing, rather). However, these social justice viewpoints do not come without their negative aspects.
