Should Teabagging Be A Punishable Offense in Esports?

Never in a billion years would I think that I would be writing about this topic. But it is my duty as a video game journalist to bring this topic to the light. It was a normal day for me. Woke up a little too late, drank coffee until my anxiety shot through the roof, and checked the morning newspaper (Twitter). And what is there right in front of my face? My fat, crusty eyed face? This.

Once again a compassion between esports and traditional sports. Arguing that if teabagging isn’t allowed in traditional sports, why should it be allowed in esports. I’ll tell you why. It’s part of the culture. Teabagging has existed before mankind. Death, taxes, and getting teabagged in Halo. It’s how we were raised. There is no other way to command presence and dominance than a good ol dip dip after taking out your enemy. You want me to floss after killing you? Or spray a little laughing face at the ground? Absolutely not. I’m going to dip it low and let you know what just went down.

You don’t see esports pros jumping into the audience and throwing down with fans and other pros after a big win or loss. But you do in traditional sports. And while I think that would be electric in esports, it’s not the place for it and it’ll never happen. Maybe just the one off scuffle. And then yes, that should be a punishable offense. As well as completely out of line chirping and interviews.
