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鈥檙e 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~

Tagging some video game homies!
(Let me know if you don't want to be tagged in future cards) :)
@CreeTheOtaku I get ya! I've almost stopped playing multiplayer just to avoid this entirely. @Straightshooter @OctoberHymns @CalebOrr @in4mtoxic006 I'm glad you guys understand and it's good to still have a bunch of guys who don't treat girl gamers that way! @ZoilaObregon @Melodicballoon That sucks. The only solutions I found are to either never reveal that you're a girl or to stop playing multiplayer entirely. :/
Plus honestly the best way to be cool with a girl gamer. Is to be nice, and talk to the them like humans. It's 2016 it's almost weird if your girl and don't game in some way.
I once played tomb raider online and this girl was on my team and all these guys were hitting on her so I told them to leave her alone and I kept losing our matches so they could stop bothering her and yell at me.
Guys I might be a guy but you shouldn't never do that when there's a gamer girl because most people play video games to except reality but instead Welcome them make friends don't be a dick
with me being male I have never experienced this, but my one of my friends likes gets it all the time and then she proceeds to kick their butts in 1 v 1 matches lol
