The Brief: Gamers words are discriminatory words that are said during virtual gaming specifically to troll or get a reaction from another online gamer.  


Commonly used between male gamers, gamer words are insensitive remarks towards other gamers while using slurs as ‘playful banter.’ Slang terms rooted in racism, sexism, or homophobia are perfect examples of gamer words that show prejudices towards certain demographics. Most online gaming conversations that use gamer words are extremely offensive.
