Meet Scarlett

image

Sasha Hostyn, or more commonly known in Starcraft 2 as her alias “Scarlett”, is a transgender professional gamer. (x)

While Scarlett has acknowledged that she is transgender, she hopes esports fans will focus on her play rather than her gender

“Okay, to stop all this speculation — it is true I am MtF transgender, and I kind of expected this reaction. I have never tried to bring attention to myself for anything other than my play, so I don’t feel like this should be a big deal,” she said last April.

“I have always tried to make it a complete non-issue,” she wrote, “and including this [in my player page] is subverting that and akin to mentioning someone is the best gay/black/etc player; something that has absolutely no relevance on how they play.” (x)

Her entrance into the world of professional Starcraft 2 is a perfect case study to reveal many of the problems still plaguing our society. Initial reactions were negative. Name calling and derogatory comments quickly populated the Starcraft 2 stream chat.

But now, Scarlett has asserted herself as a dominant force in the game. A member of Team Acer, she is now also a champion. These days, the trolls are silent as she establishes herself as a permanent fixture in esports and a true threat to the top players in the world, Korea and elsewhere. (x)
