Any other girls get harassed for liking Smash?

It's more like, "omg a girl"
Surely there's no problem with them putting me in Brawl, right?
It's ****ing satire, damnit. In NGE, Doritos are perishable goods.

The women on both sides of my family play videogames, and I often saw women hang out at the local arcade

I only found out that this was taboo after I discovered the internet.
Parenthetical remarks (however relevant) are (usually) unnecessary.

i've dated guys who've wanted to learn to play smash and they pick up the basics after like 3 hours

i've dated girls who've wanted to learn to play smash and they never pick up the basics

I wish my girlfriend would play Smash. I try to get her to play, but she doesn't like playing video games much unless it's Nintendo Land or something.

On top of that...she's terrible at Smash*. >_<

*(That was not meant to be sexist or a generalization that women aren't good at Smash Bros/video games. My sister plays Smash and she is actually pretty good.)

Same exact situation I'm in with my gf XD

I feel like this is somewhat common. My gf loves Mario Party and New Super Mario Bros. but won't play much else and certainly not SSB
King Boo for Super Smash Bros.

As I guy, I find it a bit of a turn on if girls play video games :P

But when Brawl came out, most of my friends who played it were girls. They were great!

I'm sad to say that the west-coast competitive scene can be somewhat sexist. Not necessarily like "Girls can't play REAL games bro!" but more like they are hit on relentlessly and all do the "SWAGSWAG, hit up that **tch, girl can I get yo number?" horse crap that's been going on since I don't even know how long.

It's not everybody of course, but the amount of people who behave this way are enough to discourage a large amount of girls.

I don't know though, it's probably the same everywhere else too, and it's the same thing in a lot of other non-gaming situations. It sucks.

@mrpants_again: I know you weren't generalizing, you just said that your girlfriend -as an individual- is bad at Smash.
