*Slutwalk: Virtual worlds are frequently designed with the male gaze in mind and the female avatars are represented in very sexualized forms. Marching within the environment is a call to awareness from both the players and the hosting service that the forms represent people, and that misogyny is unwelcome even and especially in the virtual space.
