IDK if it's just me but the OP's post doesn't make a whole lot of sense. Who ever wrote it is....IDK what to say.

He is from Evans Mills, NY. That's a pretty depressed area where it seems the women are pretty bitchy. At least they were when I was up at Fort Drum back in 02.

I have to say, this really made me laugh out loud ( i like to spell it out when i actually do it), and i am not sexist in any way.

I've played with women gamers all my life, they don't like to voice their presence usually because people make a big deal about it.

Jezebel isn't home to sharp edge journalism but this piece was well written. You guys must be dumber than I thought

All joking aside, he has a point: the decorum has taken a nosedive in the past decade. Just take a look at the LoL or WoW community: is there something more repulsive? Except a herpes infected penis? I don't think so.

Most women do not game.

Welcome to 1982 I guess? I'd better let the GF and my sister know, they'll be heartbroken. Last stat numbers I saw they made up between 25-40% of the market depending on the genre and the system.

Trashtalk is part of any competition. If the grrrrls can't take it, they can always form their own collective, where they can be supportive and blow rosy sunshine up each others' ass. Then when that gets old, they can ridicule their hair, weight, handbags, and fingernail glitter, until the weakest start cutting themselves.

I don't even get your idea that women can't handle trash talk. You obviously have never played with real women (where the girls aren't just whoring out their sexuality for special favors in game).

Having had relatives deal with eating disorders and cutting, you obviously have very little real life experience. You're a bad troll--you don't go after fair game (like Archivis See Profile does in many of these forums) such as the hypocrites and ignorant who try and pass themselves off as wise, you like picking on the truly weak.

That's sad.

I think Louis CK nails the definition of both a woman and a man:

"...you’re not a woman ‘til you’ve got long, chewed-up nipples. And you’re not a man ‘til you’ve sucked one of those fuckin’ things either, by the way.”

Umm...Farmville and smart phones do not count. I'm talking about gaming on consoles and PC's.

I read about 2 paragraphs before I stopped and thought "Really? This shit again?".

Fuck that! When are morons going to realize that you need to stop treating the symptom (the children) and actually cure the problem (the parents!).

Then there is the other angle. Online gaming is a public venue, if you have problems dealing with the public, then stay out of the pubic. Which one is worse? People misbehaving in public or people who can't coexist with their fellow man?

How did the world get filled up with so many pussies these days?

Well, if we are going into a debate on that one.....

I have met more women gaming than I have ever did in some public place and this is coming from someone who has been gaming online since it was possible on a PC. So you can only imagine how many actually do play consoles too.

Just because the player you trying to kill or stand with looks like a dude, doesn't mean the person behind it is always a dude.

Got it dude?

EDIT:

Come to think about it, before online gaming was even possible, it was women who got me addicted to gaming in the first place. Hhmm interesting...

I'm not saying women do not game. I will say a majority of women do not game. If you are meeting women in games that's probably because you are spending a majority of your times playing games (not judging you or you personal life). If you are out on the town trying to meet women you will probably say most women you meet are not in video games. If you're into cars and go to car meets and meet women there you will say you meet women at car meets. Typically video games, cars and stuff like that are a "man" thing with a minority of women being into those areas as well. There's probably a reason why most of us int his sub forum have wife aggro issues and only a select few have their wives that game with them.

That's true too. But the ratio of men gaming is greater than women who do. Though as I said I'm not considering smart phone games and farmville as games.

Do golfers consider minature golf, golf? I'm no pro at gaming but those are just not games in the realm of pc games or console gamers.

Perhaps they aren't 'real' enough for your definition, but I don't know of a different term you could use to describe what they are.

Sure. So could watching paint dry for some people.

And 2 kids running around playing tag is also considered a game.

Anyway, it's better to just split it into casual games vs (video? hardcore? console/PC?/something something) games.

They're all games but there's still some difference.

Exactly. PC games, console games, handheld games, social networking games, casual games, etc. They're all games, and anyone who plays them is a gamer.
