POKIMANE EXPLAINS HOW “LEGIT” FEMALE TWITCH STREAMERS HAVE HELPED THE INDUSTRY

WHAT HAPPENED?

Pokimane reflected on a time where female streamers were subject to even more misogyny than they experience today.

She described an incident where she caught one fuelling the stereotype by boosting her League of Legends account.

Poki revealed she had the streamer on her friend’s list and noticed there was a “95% chance” she was being boosted to diamond.

While it started off relatively light-hearted, it led Poki to the realization that she was grateful for how far female gamers and streamers have come.

I’m glad there is much less of this kind of thing and there are so many really, really legit female streamers and gamers.

Poki explained that she still experiences hardships from time to time, and there’s a long way to go.
