I’M SORRY BUT THIS REALLY PISSED ME OFF AND I NEEDED TO VENT.
So I liked this page last year for the shits and gigs, as you do. I found it funny, and let slide the few sexist posts.
Only recently- and after I got a tumblr- did I really start to notice the abundance of rape, sexist and racist jokes appearing on my news feed. And it pissed me off.
I said nothing, however, because what could I do? Send in a message to the page and get labelled a whore and a slut by the Admins as I’ve seen so many people do?
Then this motherfucking gem popped up.
I usually don’t get involved in these sorts of things; if I do my comment gets lost more often than not and goes unnoticed. But I had to comment, I really had to.
I thought my argument was valid and whole, and I was actually rather happy when he admin directly replied to my comment.
I narrowed down my five favourite games ever and posted them.
Of course, I got beaten and labeled down once again.
When I asked for a rational clarification of his definitions of “casual” and “core” he did not reply. It was only when I directly insinuated the bias of his claim did I get a response.
“A feminist I see. No arguments need to be made. Good luck with getting them eggs fertilized”
Note the use of “feminist” as an insult.
I have had my fair share of gender specific hate regarding gaming. I get told I am a fake and a bitch if I get a high score; I get told to “suck a dick because you are better at that, bitch” if I get a low score; I get told to “get back in the kitchen, slut” without any prompt at all, simply because I have a vagina.
I am beyond sick of this. I hate the fact that if a male who hypothetically plays a few hours of CoD can be easily called a gamer by the wider community but I if were to say that I was a level 34 on Skyrim I would immediately be called a fake geek girl, a casual gamer and a liar.
I hate the fact that, even though 45% of gaming consumers are female, developers and publishers still believe that there is not a large enough demographic for female protagonists.
I hate the fact that most women in video games are no more than sexulised objects in skimpy clothing.
I hate the fact that I cannot enjoy a game without being labeled and branded because of the fact that I posses a vagina and not a penis.
~sorry about the long post clogging up your dash. I needed to vent~
Off-topic somewhat, but important.
Every one is angry or sad or both because of all this hurtfull words guy/man give to use gamer girls.
Well I´m happy non of my guy friends are like that, they see me as a true gamer and I even made most of them play Psychonauts, rayman and more.
Never have I ever been call a fake gamer by a friends and I ignore every person who dos.
I think more female character will be seen in games and some new have alredy come.
Don´t care that Gamex don´t wanna put up some better game or that xbox players are sometimes dicks “that why I don´t play online there.”
Yeah just ignore and see the light, guy love heroic women and they would like to see more of them .
A true gamers don´t care what the gender person has as long the game is fun to play.

So it’s summer and Con season is coming up, it’s going to be a cracking time! But what’s this? Something has just gone a bit dodgy, and now you need someone’s help. First I’ll run through a list of things that can happen in summer conventions and how to solve them, then provide a means of…
The most beautifully designed subway tunnels in the world are found in Stockholm, Sweden. The grand architecture reminds its travelers that they are deep underground. Featuring painted cave walls and ceilings, the design is more like an art gallery than a subway.
