In my 40ish years of wargaming I’ve seen very little diversity. Just a couple women, occasionally, over the years. I can think of only two other non-white male gamers that played regularly. But I suspect that is true in most hobbies, too. I suspect that in white-male society, hobbies, while perhaps considered eccentric, are not unacceptable behavior. I think there is more of a bias against spending time and money and effort on such silliness in other segments of society.
But then I may be falling prey to my own stereotypes. I think there’s a bit more of a gaming culture in Japan, isn’t there?
