Results from an Ohio University study reveal females are much more likely to deal with negative, aggressive chatter than their male counterparts.
Research published on Gamasutra shows players identified as women during Halo 3 multiplayer matches received three unfriendly reactions for every standard interaction, compared to male or unidentified players.

Frankly, it's been my experience that female gamers give three times the trash talk.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

You may think you're cool, but you'll never be as cool as Peter Capaldi with an electric guitar, on a tank, playing the Doctor Who theme.

And a lot of them like to make a big deal out of it.

My ex developed a popular game . It's on line. I joined just to see if I could get into it . It's not quite my taste ,and I tried,but he told me specifically not to ID myself as a female ,ever.
He said any woman that had ever joined ,was eithr hacked harrassed or stalked .

Miss me?

Young men can be really stupid.

Maybe that's why I'm not into multi player games over the internet.

I am another anonymous face in the crowd. I am just another tiny wheel in the machinery of the world I live in.

RIFT has/had  a good female to male population. And it has been very friendly in the mmo industry to the lady gamers out there.

Really depends on the game.

In DayZ, people who identify as female get more liberal responses in side chat, and more offers of assistance.

Guys on there argue and harass eachother constantly.

The medicine for my suffering I had within me from the very beginning, but I did not take it. My ailment came from within myself, But I did not observe it until this moment. Now I see that I will never find the light.  Unless, like the candle, I am my own fuel, Consuming myself. "

Girls get more attention online because a lot of male gamer's are idiotic enough to think they'll get some Tits if they're kind.

What a nobhead.

That being said, I hate the term: GamerGirl; it makes no sense and just makes it sound taboo that a girl would play video games and some attention whores love to use it to their advantage.

"Look at me, I'm a girl who can play video games!"

"Yeah , I'm sure you love playing with joy sticks, alright"

Games are for everyone on equal terms, same as Movies and books, and Tv etc.

(P.S) I'd still tap that with the force of a thousand suns, not because she's a gamer but because I'm a teenage boy...ya dig? ^
