I got my GF an Xbox for christmas two years ago so she could play with me.
She basically can never open her mouth in a COD lobby without a response like, "Why don't you play once your balls have dropped little boy?", "Where are your parents?" and "Wow look at that heart emblem, that's so gay."
It's seriously ****ing embarrassing. The COD community is disgusting.

I used to play tons of Counter Strike. Girls tended to get trolled hard whenever one spoke on a mic. However, from my experience, the overwhelming majority of these girls seemed to enjoy it. Engaging in banter or even playing the submissive to some guy's misogynistic rant. These girls make it much more difficult for the women who detest that kind of reaction from online communities. --- Like my favorite show The O'Reilly Factor when I post the spin stops here.

It really depends on the type of game. I don't play shooters that much, so I can't say much about them.
On MMORPGs, it's not uncommon to run into female gamers. This is especially true in more casual guilds, clans, etc.

It might be because I'm gay, but I never understand when all of my friends/randoms freak the hell out whenever a girl gets in the lobby.
One of my friends: Hey, you seem nice, do you wanna hang out some time? Girl online: No thanks dude. Him: Ok, well I bet you're a whore! My other friend: Don't listen to him he's a douche bag, I'm not though, do you wanna hang out some time??
I just don't get it.. --- I like tacos more than burritos. I'm going to eat a taco, then a burrito. Get it right people...

Guys definitely go over the top and start s*** sometimes. But guys aren't the only ones to blame. Guys don't go out of their way to leave clues as to what sex they are on their profile. Attention seeking seems to be a huge thing for "gamer" girls these days. --- Xbox Live: Eighth Element || PSN: Echo_Resonance ~TL;DR? Don't care.~
