Gamer/girl. Strategies for negotiating femininity in the gaming field of Twitch Italy Video game culture developed as a male territory, where female presence has always created strife. The present article offers a reconstruction in four phases of the conflicts surrounding female gamers in order to frame the current situation. Twitch represents a privileged space to observe transformations in gaming culture as it reintroduces corporeality into gaming, seen as a spectator activity. The research explores the negotiation strategies deployed by female streamers to assert their right to a full citizenship in the field, focusing on two dimensions: managing femininity and contrasting toxicity.
Keywords: digital boyhood, Twitch.tv, geek culture, online communities, gaming capital, erotic capital.
