Pretty big assumption about Xbox Live, I have hardly seen or witnessed a girl getting trashed talked or anything of the sort on any gaming network and the guys who let other guys do such things have no spine anyways.

P.S. It happens on any network

"Pretty big assumption about Xbox Live" I was having a laugh mostly poking fun at my sons and their xbot friends no doubt it happens on other networks as well, but I would say only on Xbox live lol only kidding : )

Trash talk is part of gaming. If someone can get something specific about you, they are going to use it. When they have nothing, it's just a bunch of cussing since a white guy isn't going to call another white guy a cracker.

I won't disagree with your comment, I just want to say I would totally call another white guy a cracker. It would be funny

Another one?

Nobody complains when guys make fun of other guys on here. But if it's a girl, it's sexism?

IT'S GAMING. Trash talking will exist regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, or anything else. Yeah, it's annoying to hear people tossing out the "n" word when they realize me and my friends are black. But all it REALLY means is that they're bothered enough by our gameplay that they resort to childish insults.

Women SHOULD take such things with as much importance. But they're so busy (and here I refer to the ones who complain, like this article would imply) trying to make it known that they're women who are gamers that they all but subject themselves to it.

I don't care if you're male or female, black, white, or Hispanic. If you can play, you can play.
