My problem with the word “gamer.”

In which I probably offend some of you. I’m sorry if I do, but keep in mind that these are just opinions and I’m just a random person on the internet. My issues with being called a gamer stem from many planted roots. Like, the negative stigma that follows it. The stereotyping, too. Generally, how little I like to label myself or when others label themselves over something they simply happen to love. The article that sparked this debate with myself can be found here. I feel that if we truly want to find good representations of gamers, we should start acting like good representations of people that love to play video games.
