In The UK, More Girls Aged 13-15 Are Watching Esports Than Boys

A survey has revealed that a whopping 84% of teen girls located in the UK spend some of their time playing video games, and within the 13-15 age range, more girls watch esports than boys.

In shocking news for sexists, video games have overtaken shopping in the list of leisure activities enjoyed by girls. Meanwhile, in other sexist new, this:

“Not only are the gender results revealed by this survey very striking, what’s clear is that the very idea of online gaming needs to be thought about differently, said The Insights People CEO Nick Richardson.

“There’s a clear difference between what boys are into, such as Fortnite and Call of Duty, and what girls are doing online, which is much more about collaboration and co-creation.”

Er, no mate, lots of girls play Fortnite and Call of Duty.

    When they say ‘video games’ do they mean traditional console games or social media games like FarmVille? I’m not disputing the claims but it would be interesting to know what subcategories of ‘video gaming’ these studies relate to.
