Why is gaming a predominantly male hobby?

LOL at "girl gamers"
They are the ones who chew on cords seductively and say "I'm such a nerd XD" right?

What a joke.

And feminism and gaming? Don't even get me started.

This is why. Because misogynists like this out women off.


QFT ^

I sometimes wonder about players with no mic. How many are female? To be honest, with all the pubescents and sexist halfwits, I wouldn't use one. It's a real shame. The few female players on my friends list are among the best I know. I wish there were more.


White-knighting to the extreme.

I never said I hate women, but growing up where my hobby was looked down upon even ridiculed by the majority of the opposite sex [fast forward] to what it has become now is like a slap in the goddamn face.

Aye. Some of the most hardcore and best gamers I know are women. One of my mates, who will probably read this and not admit to it, is liable to get owned by his wife in battlefield. Yet he says she often gets accused of having her boyfriend play over mic by the noobcaek menchildren she owns.

The woman I'm 'pursuing' down in Laaaaaandun is a properly hardcore Skyrim player, but her gaming history includes the likes of half life 2 and diablo. She doesn't use her gender for attention, despite being utterly gorgeous. She even plays Warhammer. I thought I was a nerd, then I met her.

And myself? I stopped online gaming years back and now only do it if I'm playing with real life friends. Because I just got sick of the community. If I'm doing it on my own I pretty much turn all communication off. I'm tired of having racial slurs and other such nonsense shouted at me, or hearing some 12 year old American blaring his gangsta rap down the mic.

Gaming rocks. Gamers suck.

You Ser, are a sad, sad little individual. As evidenced by your use of the term white-knighting. Tell me, as a white person when I call a racist out, am I black-knighting? No? So why is it a bad thing when, as a man, I call you out on your sexism? Oh it isn't? You were just using a tired old derailment tactic? Ah, that explains it.

You guys are too much. You "assume" just as much as I do so in retrospect you're no better, but it's always cool being a hypocrite.

This is what women becoming "gamers" creates.
