Geek feminism and relational aggression: Are we the real “Mean Girls”?

Geek women and gamer girls are ruthless and occasionally woman-hating - but only as a result of the culture that spawned us. What can we do to stop the hate?

This is the first in a series.

♥ Great article. Im not a female geek but im also not a mean girl. Im kinda stuck in the middle. I admit I used to look down on guys who were basically nerds but I regret doing that. After I started to watch anime and get into games. I found them to be fun and cool. I wish i could go back and take back what i said about those types of guys.
Also I hate that guys think that cute girls can't play videogames. It really insulting when I hear that. You guys need to wake up. Us Girlgamers are here and we are ready to take over :) ♥

Something makes me think you have a beard.........

being female on here should be secondary to being a gamer.

the fact that you are commenting means you are thru and thru a geek, just embrace it ;)

Gaming angels ftw.

@ dipsetboy17

I see why you have one bubble!

@ pork_chop_express

Well I want to show that their are girls on this site! Most of you guys think girls don't exist or insult us by making kitching jokes. So im gone to be very out there with my feminine ways. I just want to show that girls can be hardcore gamers ♥

On the contrary Vixen. I imagine that most of us fully realize that there are girls on this site. I suspect that at least 1 in 4 people on this site are female, if not 1 in 3. I also suspect that any females that frequent this site are likely among the more mature commenters. Females tend to mature faster than males.

Needlessly filling your comments with hearts does not exactly scream maturity. That is why I suspect that you are not what you claim to be.

Let me say this however, if I am wrong (and I am a man so it is entirely plausible) then I sincerely apologize.

that way of fake typing is not really cute nor feminine , just bordeline silly and creepy , and usually strong hints that you are a guy having fun .

If true ? Then apologies in advances , Then my issues , not being about "girlzgamerz" ,kinda shift back to you .

Most gaming women or girls , i know act normally and dont need to put up a silly "hey i'm a girlz and Ai game!!" ads show . They just are themselves

Ok I believe you, but as assasin said there are LOADS of female gamers on N4G.

geek chic ftw.

There are many different kinds of strength, a female character can be strong emotionally and have depth without neccesarily having to be tough or sassy.

candybeans2982d ago

Very true, in the case of characters. Non-character women, though, are a very diverse group that show strength in lots of ways.

Interesting read, and it definitely falls in the "sad but true" category that we can undermine one another without batting an eyelash.

(since cb posted this I'm almost certain this isn't girl-gamer-bait to lure us into a trap, tag us, and release us back into the wild. *Almost* certain, cb ;) )

Ignore the cages in the corner.
