It's common knowledge that the gaming industry and all things game related is a mans world. But GirlGamers have written about how being a girl gamer can sometimes cause problems when playing online.
"I started to find it more and more amusing when people started asking me to be their girlfriend, asking me to meet up with them to go to the cinema and I also got tired of people trying to hump my Spartan on Halo 2! I sometimes played games without saying a word so nobody would know I was female and it's amazing how much my death rate would decrease so nobody could shout "I killed the girl! I'm going to teabag her body!""
