An opinion column via eGamer in which the author expresses his confusion at the contradicting nature of a lonely gamer stereotype and the assumption that 'geek girls' only exist as attention-seekers.
Quote: "Why is the female gamer so unrealistically attractive when all she really is, is a female who play games, the same way a male plays games. I’ve not known many males to go, “Yeah, I play games,” and then be covered by women in a fraction of a second. (If you can picture that, then congratulations on having an awesome imagination.) Or for that matter, be questioned by everyone on the history of gaming because it’s obviously just a ploy for attention. So why is it this way with women? "
