My dad just made his FB status "Videogames are for little boys...

"Videogames are for little boys...why does my 28 year old son want a Xbox for christmas?"

He got 10 likes and 5 comments all saying something like "Lol bill I cant believe he still games, my son is 12 and games"

This is so embarrassing. I feel sick. I dont even want to get out of bed right now.

You do know the average gamer age is like 32 right?
It may have changed, but yeah...

Yup. Its actually more embarrassing for the people making the comments. They don't realize how popular gaming is for people of all ages.

Wow - that's pretty crummy of your dad to publicly embarrass you like that.

The average age was 37 a year or two ago. It's gone down (likely due to tablet/phone games counting as gaming) to 30, but still. No reason to be ashamed, tc. Everyone needs a hobby. As long as you don't let gaming stop you from life's obligations, you're fine.

Whatever the age and gender demographic is for using Facebook status updates to passive-aggressively insult family members, I'm sure your Dad isn't suppose to be part of it.

TC the best thing you can do it the next time your Dad's in the bathroom having his period or making himself throw-up, you should sneak into his bedroom and take a look in his diary for some juicy gossip to use against him... and while you're there perhaps swap his birth control pills for aspirin.

Your dad sounds like a douche to be honest. Respond to his post with this: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/news/10159917/Average-video-game-fan-is-35-years-old.html

Gaming ageism should be layed off, but why still ask for gifts for Christmas at an old age?
