I really hope this time around they ask if you're a girl first

With the increase of female gamers, one would hope for some equality in the gaming scene. Sure they ask if we are female or male, but why must they ask if we're male first. In many games, not just pokemon, there are choices for your gender and 100% of the time it will ask if you're male first, but female as the second option. That's not fair. I'm just hoping they become aware of this problem and actually do something about it.

This is the most petty thing I have ever heard. There are just... "normal" ways round they go. "Diamond and Pearl" "Black and White". If you say "White and Black" it sounds weird. "Male or female" and "Female or male" is exactly the same as that.

I don't know. I think sexism against women happens more than most people realise, but things used to be a lot worse. I'm not saying things are okay now, they definitely aren't imo, but I do think things are moving in the right direction, even if it's slowly.

On topic (heh), if it's sexist to ask if you're a boy first, isn't it sexist to ask if you're a girl first? Maybe it should be randomised. Maybe.

Thank you, gentlemen! Someday, I will repay you. Unless, of course, I can't find you or if I forget.
