Stop Calling Yourself A “Gamer”

Athletes have the prestige of being athletic (at least if they’re worth anything on the field) while people good enough can go onto be professional athletes. Good for them.

So-called “gamers” have the prestige of…gaming? It doesn’t really carry the same tune to it and there’s no reason to fight for change on this so let’s just drop it. Uh, yes, playing is fun and it can easily get competitive without going professional but it’s not a way to describe yourself. Play all you want, but you’ve got a lot more going for you than to be defined by “gaming.”
