Dear Gamer Gurls, GTFO

Jessica Winkler writes:

"I have been playing video games since I was old enough to hold a controller. There are few (and I mean VERY few) things in the gaming community that disgust me more than “Gamer Gurls”. Before you come at me with your torches and pitchforks, let me explain to you the difference between a female gamer and a “gamer gurl”. Since I already know some of you are putting on your troll hats as we speak, I’m going to lay this out as simply as I can."

I don't think that picture is accurate... The guy should be fat, have zits, and a bag of chips next to him... Also, empty cans of soda on the desk are a bonus lol.

RIPSKATEDESTROY1444d ago

you know thats a girl right?

Snookies121444d ago

Whaa, the one on the bottom looks like a guy. D:

RIPSKATEDESTROY1444d ago

it says "this is a gamer girl"

WeskerChildReborned1444d ago

Guy? Also how does being a gamer make us look fat or have zits? lol i think that's just stereotyping.

TheModernKamikaze1444d ago

You're stereotyping a guy. This is a girl.

I agree with this article. A gamer is a gamer, I treat them all the same (Which generally is like crap) I have played games with males and females, and its still the same game, I am not so desperate that I want to try to sweet talk some random girl in a random online game.

Really, it's kind of sad to see it happen, and I have cussed out people for doing that... it detracts from the game, and that's not why we are playing the game. We play it for fun not to find girls, you want that? Go outside or something!

Though I agree that girls who go online looking for attention piss me off more then the idiots fawning over her.

Nice article, good read.

Yeah. I could have done without calling them sluts. Couldn't we go with poseur or idiot or something a little less "omg! girls wanting sex is teh bads!" (which is what slut means).

Dear girls who feel the need to insult other girls as sluts, GTFO. We don't need you any more than we need the weirdos posing with game controllers.

Wanting sex isn't bad, putting yourself on display like a sex object simply to grab at attention then bitching about people treating you like 1 is.

These girls are seriously sluts. They're looking for attention by debasing themselves.

Shadowstar1444d ago

They can look for attention however they want. Slut shaming is still NOT ok. If they want sex, what's the problem? Some women do, some women don't.

Me? I don't, and I don't want men to treat me like a sex object. But that doesn't make me a better person or a better gamer than a woman who wants that stuff.

Sadly, some women have YET to understand this.

@ JAMurida

Indeed. They been brainwashed for decades into thinking freedom and rights comes with no strings attached. Well this is the result of society being too accomodating to fringe groups and malcontents.

Lord_Sloth1444d ago

Slut is describing the way they're acting. Freedom of speech. If they wanna call some1 acting like a slut a slut, what's the problem? There isn't 1 and I'm not arguing about it. They act like sluts, they're gonna get treated like a slut. End of story.

I treat men the same way too so don't try a double standard routine.

jeeves861444d ago

Okay. Let's not call em sluts then.

Let's just call them slutty.

Come on now. If you're going to act slutty, be prepared to be called a slut. Women and girls who do that should know better.

Great read. A gamer girl is exactly what it should be a gamer that happens to be a girl nothing more or less.......
