The First Ladies of Halo 4 and 343i Speak Out on Sexism on Xbox Live

Halo 4 Executive Producer, Kiki Wolfkill, and 343i's General Manager, Bonnie Ross, spoke out against the rampant sexism on Xbox Live. However, as noble as their intentions were, it takes more than the threat of a ban to rid of over the top Xbox Live behavior--it's also up to the gamer and gamer community itself to change and assist in change. (Culture, Halo 4, Xbox, Xbox LIVE)

sexism or not, why are people so "bothered" that ladies/guys look a little more human?

It's online what do you expect, I've heard a lot of girls be right b****es to guys aswell so it works both ways. Besides online is like a boys club, what do you expect, someone calls your mother you call theres back, if someone calls you a British Asshole you call them an American prick and if someone on your team decides to friendly fire because they think it's "funny" then you kill that son of a b****.

Seriously no offense to girls but consoles are kind of a guys thing, always have been always will be, they were always targeted at guys and that "geek" stereotype when they first came out so you either get with the program and man up or stop playing. No ones gonna change online, it's impossible.

I am not going to agree or disagree with your comment. I am a male gamer, but calling someone an Asshole is a whole lot different than calling a female a lot of that dirty crap guys say.

Think about it, we all have mothers, sisters, daughters etc, so would you want some A-Hole spewing that revolting crap at them? If you get beaten at a game, suck it up. Some of the things my sister has been called online is disgusting. I think it really shows what sex are the real girls when it comes to insults.

I agree it is mainly a male audience, but it is by no means a boys club. Anyone can join. The way I see it, the female gamers I know generally swing towards the games I like (Heavy rain, alan wake, Halo etc.). Which makes me more toward their side, rather than the pre-teen geeky boy who blasts people online with immature, empty insults.

At the end of the day, people need to decide for themselves when to grow up. If I was spoken to like that face-to-face, I'd flatten them. To bad this anonymity of the internet makes it so easy for people to get away with this crap.
