This topic has come up a few times in the community here, but I'm just baffled as to how often this happens in reality! >.<
As someone who doesn't even play that many multiplayer games, I've still gotten similar messages on Steam and LoL. It's as if finding a girl playing games is similar to finding an alien on Earth. I understand that there might not be as many girls playing video games, but that does not mean they should be treated differently.
Here are some of the most common things female gamers hear online:
"Girls belong in the kitchen. Go make me a sandwich." NO.
"You sound hot! I bet you’re hot. Are you hot?" STOP.
"Are you a girl? Be my friend! Accept my friend request!" NOPE.
"Hey baby. How you doing?" GET OUT! SMH
It's 2016 and I think like it's about time this stops. One can certainly hope~
Have you ever experienced this or seen this happen? Let me know in the comments~
