Mikey Suchomel Never think in terms of black and white. Even if I phrase it black and white, always assume extenuating circumstances. They exist; but they are far and few between. It's not being sexist either; go watch any pro tourney for a game and you'll find that most, if not everybody, competing is male.
So yes. Precisely what Chris said. Most are whoring, but a few are legit.
Out of respect for the people who really are avid video game enthusiasts, I would never call myself a gamer. With that in mind, I play a larger variety of games than your typical "girl gamer" so when I hear "girl gamer", I don't think of falling madly in love with a girl. I think attention whore.
Give it time, it'll go back to normal soon, the fact remains women are view as sexual objects by not just men but women aswell, while men are viewed at as "whole". Eventully there will be a single standard of maturity, or there wont be a future.
tl;dr women have the minds of children, cat beat them so they don't growup.
If a girl enters a mens toilet (by mistake or otherwise) she's even welcomed! Come in! Join the fun! We do not care! Sure, you can use our toilet because the ladies room is too busy! Something to drink?
If a man enters a ladies room, all hell breaks loose. Full body armour will not help to survive. How dare you! Nails will be sharpened, high heels will be sunk!
I have to say all the girl gamers I know are actual hard core gamers, who don't refer to themselves as girl gamers nor do other people refer to them as girl gamers. The girls who call themselves girl gamers are generally attention whores
Violence isn't good to begin with but no gender is above ass-whooping. I've known girls who talk down on their guy and dare them to hit her for an hour straight and have the nerve to act surprise when he does it and calls him crazy. He wasn't crazy, he's tired of her talking shit all day long. But as usual when this occurs to a female, on TV, they are always the victims. It's not like the woman had it coming ever.
So here's the thing-- the people who think it's okay for women to do these things are probably not the same ones who are trying to stop violence and sexual abuse and fighting for equal treatment for everyone. The people who thing it's funny for a woman to hit a man, or grab his crotch, are making it harder for everyone who wants to end these things. Equal rights should mean nobody gets hit, raped, treated unfairly, not open season on smacking women (Yes I'm talking to you Dylan, what an asinine comment!).
