"We need to do more than just “be nice” to female gamers, we need to actively find ways of making female gamers, game journalists, and game developers feel more welcome."

I liked this article. It's not about entitlement or about special treatment, simply about treating women as they and every human should be treated; equal.

The gaming community is toxic towards everybody. It needs to change, but lets not pretend only girls get flak. Just about anything you say/do can and likely will be turned against you because people don't care about some person they don't know about and likely will never meet again. I hear more people getting shit for their voices or mic quality than I have heard people give a female friend shit for being a girl.

Regardless, yes it needs to change. It's a very caustic community.

Yeah this is true. But I don't like fake girl gamers.
I've actually played games with girls that are better than me at some games.

Never once have I judged another player's skills in an online game based on sex.

It's a preposterous way of thinking.

I have in the past taken offense at MMO playing females using their gender to garner favor for gear drops, etc. with easily-led raid leaders, but that seems to have gone by the wayside in recent years.

i find it weird that girl gamers are still a thing.

gender is totally irrelevant
