It would be cool to see guys and girls competing against each other in gaming.

Women compete in fighting game tournaments all the time(sometimes they even have dedicated side tournaments just for the women). You think that a video game would be the perfect bridge for women to compete on level terms with men but it really hasn't been the case so far.

I think women psychologically tend to not be as competitive so in turn there seems to be a disproportionate amount of female competitors in tournaments like these. A good number of women do play cod and halo but not very many compete.

I've met 1 "Pro" Gamer in person before, and watched him hit on my female coworkrs at gamestop for about a good 20 minutes straight. Once they got fed up and went into the back he asked me to get him "hooked up" with her... yea, not a very female friendly league if you ask me.
