lol, while reading this, all I could think of is my time playing Left 4 Dead. Jeez, ANY time a girl would join the game, the other dudes in the game take way more risk with tanks and/or end up being total jerks to the rest of us (me and the other male player). Oh, and the female user always got priority in healing... always!

I'm not even going to mention some of the things these other guys say to her... >.>

I remember speaking to a good friend of mine who would spend anywhere from 4-12 hours in Guild Wars a day, and his primary character was a female. Everyone in the guild knew he was a guy and no one ever made a big deal out of it. But, whenever anyone would ask him, he would respond with this: "I figured, I'm going to spend hundreds of hours looking at the backside of my character. If that's going to be the case, I'd rather it be a backside I find attractive."

Wow, haven't heard that 50 million times...that's just the excuse that closet trannies use when they are too ashamed of playing dress up in fantasy clothes as a chick. Keep in mind, games like Guild Wars are ROLEPLAYING games. Many men roleplay as females, flirt with men in game, etc. It is a known fact. Trust me, there is WAY more going on than just "looking at an attractive backside". Honestly, I don't know what's more pathetic...a dude roleplaying as a chick, or a guy finding a bunch of polygons and pixels attractive.

Homophobic much? So, if you play Tomb Raider, does that mean you're actually a different kind of raider as well? You sound like you're either very insecure, or just trolling. Either way, it's pathetic

This is funny, I normaly ignore female gamers because I know every single guy hits on them and if you even try to talk to them they think your going to hit on them as well so I normaly don't bother, When im on a game im there to play not pick up women. I always hear girl gamers on their mics trash talking like a bitchy little sluts and talking about small penises, hardly the type of women I want to get to know anyway.

I think this story is realy creepy and the sole reason I consider every internet user a male even if they use a female avatar.
