Sexisim and reform among gamers.

Recommended Posts

That's not sexism, you shouldn't be bothered by it. If someone calls me a bigot or a tard I don't get offended, it's just verbal nothing physical. Don't respond to their messages and "Let it be, let it be! Let it be yeah let it beee!"

Neither of those are specifically because someone is male or female.

Isn't it mainly little kids who think they are being funny that say crap like that?

As a PC gamer, I haven't really witnessed anybody sh*t talk girls/women in games in years. I did see it happen YEARS ago(10+) but even there it was mostly the "omg a gurl i luv u" type of "harassment" from a few select idiots.

But these days, women are a lot more present in games, so that doesn't happen as much from what I can see. Then again, I mostly play MMO and I don't hang around communities of little kids, so I dunno. I generally treat them as equals in games, especially since when a mic isn't an option, you never know if the other person truly is female or not anyway. (The Internet: where men are men, women are men, and children are FBI agents)

Heck, I often roleplay a female character in games(they look better IMO) and haven't had any form of harassment done to me.. except that one time a couple years ago where some dumbo tried to hit on me, but even that was clearly not anything serious.

We don't see it because it isn't done in public. It definitely still happens.

All I know is that my sister gets creeped on at a hugely unacceptable rate when she plays games online because she's a girl. The closest I've experienced is people messaging me out of the blue asking if I'm a girl because I play a girl in an mmo. If I say yes they continue to message and get real creepy real fast. It's literally never happened when playing a male character.

If that's not sexism among gamers I don't know what is.

 

You enabled them, and then get confused it gets akward. I literally can't even... have you people no self-awareness?

 

And you're saying that guys don't tell eachother they fucked their mom? And call them faggots or to kill themselves for being terrible?

Women just get different insults, but the interaction is nothing different.

 

And yeah, this isn't sexism..

What difference does it make?  I get bashed when I speak out against feminism!  I get called "Typical white male" or "White dick"  seriously?  How does adding a gender tag make any sort of difference?  Pull yourself together!  It's merely name calling!  Not physical abuse, and yest it's typically with the MMO players because they usually sit there and click, then click again and wait for their moves to recharge.  It's a joke you're being #Triggered way too easily.

Oh I'm sure it still happen, wouldn't surprise me if it happened in games like DotA, LoL, TF2, etc.., where playing with a Mic is a near necessity. The fact that it's free to play doesn't help either, as anybody can make an account, mostly kids with no money....

That's not the point, I said the types of comments may vary, but the interaction and competitive/insulting nature doesn't. 

 

I've been shat on by many gamers over my playtime over the years. I just never fucking cared what some 12 year old twat on the internet thought of me.

Nor is it particularly intimidating if some keyboard warrior threatens you. You know they never will.

 

 

I am ignoring what are you talking about?  :D

It still happens but it's super duper rare!  I play warface(Laugh all you want) and my clan is full of females!  Almost no one on warface calls someone out for being a girl.  And if they taunt you for being a girl it's because their afraid of their ego being hurt by being beat by a girl so take it as a compliment for christs sake!  Also you don't know what sexism is.

Take a gender studies course and you'll see what third-wave feminism is.

Feminism is not equality, you're thinking egalitarianism.

Well, that brings up a question. Why aren't more people egalitarians as opposed to feminists?

Because then more women want to play the game? I tried the game story sucked and the online was lame so not worth my money so I did not buy their POS game and wont buy it again on next gen console or PC, and will not buy again until they fix it...

That is an interesting thing that I'd never thought about from the point of view of gender. I mean, I've thought  about it from my point of view as a gaymer, but never thought, even though it's sorta obvious that women would want to play women in the same way I want to play gay guys.

Also, if a game isn't marketed towards women why do you get offended?  Go make a feminist RPG with Hiliary Clinton and Anita Sarkeesian trying to make it to Lesbian Love hotel while trying to make life harder.  The more people you hurt or bitch at in the game means more points and more points means more dollars to spend more nights at the hotel!

In story driven games you're not supposed to identify as the character. That's the whole point of story-driven games. It's a protagonist, with a fixed story that only makes sense within certain boundaries and fixed characters.

 

It makes no sense making it a female character if it was supposed to be a story about a man. And a female player could just as easily idenfity with (not as) that character as a male would. Just like the opposite is true. Every man could identify with Jade, or Zoë or Samus or Lara Croft.

They will then realize that nobody will buy it. But that's ofcourse not because nobody is interested in playing that tosh, but because of toxic masculinity that has brainwashed everyone. Projection set to 11.

No offence but I'd appreciate it if you read the whole thread before replying as you'd see that I actually addressed the very thing you stated here.

 

None taken .  Did you?  Pity I wasn't 'talking' to you (well strictly speaking I was 'talking' to the whole forum but not you in particular) or about anything you'd said.  I was replying to Nena's post saying it wasn't fair picking on people because of their gender. I was saying people will always pick on others whether it is for being female, small, overweight, Latvian -  whatever.

What you said, is not stereotyping, it isn't oppression, it isn't discrimination and it's not exactly prejudice.  Sexism would be more like not letting you join a forum because your a girl or not permitting you partake in a clan because you're a girl.  This is more of what sexism is.
