Get your undies out your butt and simmer down. The days where men don’t take female gamers seriously are slowly coming to an end. So you don’t have to stand up in your swivel chair and protest to the gaming world that you’re a female with working and very coördinated opposable thumbs. No one cares. I don’t care, the next gamer don’t care, the universe don’t care. Feel comfortable in your skin for once. The gaming world isn’t out to get you and people can care less what gender you are; just don’t suck, cheat, use trainers unnecessarily [same as cheating-doh!], troll, or rage quit.
Just take this into consideration, there are some really good female gamers out there and sadly most of them associate themselves with the overrated and over-hyped up Halo franchise. Something I would have to be paid to play because then, I’ll be able to bear it knowing it’ll all be over soon.
We’re no longer “rare”, we’re no longer “special” and people no longer care. Don’t be offended by this blog, I’m just telling it like it is. This a female gamers heart to heart moment so bear with me.
Let me just point one thing out. Although I haven’t seen this yet but I’m sure it’s happening as I type. Please don’t be a console fan girl. It won’t do you any favors. All three consoles have major flaws, one is better is than the other in some places and worse in others. If you’re going to go into a long drawn out debate about why you feel why the console of your choice is the dominant console, please I beg of you, make sense and know what you’re saying. Be factual, not opinionated. That’s hard to do isn’t it? I mean because you can’t necessarily say that one console is superior to the others if you’re using facts. Honestly, you can just simply say one has less flaws than the others and that’s not really a stretch either. Besides, PC’s will always win that argument but you would have to see it from a PC gamer‘s perspective such as myself to understand why. The Wii, the PS3, the Xbox 360 can have all those motion sensors, but the graphic pull and the red rings and all the other nasty things that come with consoles? It’s not worth it. I can build a decent gaming rig with the amount of money people wasted on a console [the ps3].
I say know what you’re talking about because people don’t even know what chip-sets are inside of their consoles and yet, they’re saying one is better than the other. Get to know your consoles, become one with them if you will. Well that’s my two cents on that subject. Back to the matter at hand…
Shouldn’t feel threatened in any way by your male counterparts, a lot of them suck anyway. Just enjoy gaming and being a gamer. Gaming shouldn’t be divided by gender, there shouldn’t be a war among gamers because of gender. It’s ridiculous. Don’t get me wrong, there are some sexist bastards out there. All I have to say about that is, they’re jealous, insecure, or suffer from the lack of attention they was deprived of as a child. Either way, they want you to get upset because that gets them off. Brush that bullshit off and kick some ass.
I love that saying “I can show you better than I can tell you”. So don’t get on the mic menstruating because that’s what they want. Get them where it hurts them the most, in their pride. If you suck though, I would just stick to menstruating on the mic.
