I have to mute about half the women I play with online. Some of them talk too much. It almost seems like they do it to remind all the guys that there is a girl playing with them. And when they successfully get some of the guys into reacting to them it can get so ridiculous I just join a different server.

Girls go to places where men are to pick them up? IMPOSSIBLE! This is UNACCEPTABLE. And companies use women to advertise to men? This is unheard of!

On a more serious note, a lot of the arguments given in the article don't hold up too well. Sex sells, and women go where men are to pick them up. These are just simple facts of the way culture and society works, and saying it should be different in games is just silly. I agree we shouldn't differentiate between women and men in games, but when it comes down to it, we are different, and the human mind simply needs to put layers of abstraction onto large groups of people to be able to comprehend it. Layers of abstraction are:

- Gender
- Race (Black, White, Asian)
- Nationality

All of these are applied to understand what type of person we're dealing with, and it will always be this way, because as I said before, that's the way our minds work. Get used to it.

Besides, people know gamer girls don't look like the ones in advertisements. In fact, most people believe that they look something like this:

its a sad undeniable fact that sex sells. Nobody really believes that these girls play games. Its just a way to advertise and promote their game. Its like motorsport- why oh why is there pretty girls dressed to next to nothing before a race starts prancing around?! I can not see the relevance in cars and the girls? But they are there.

Because races are boring when the cars are not moving but with hot chicks its another story.

sex sells because we live in a man´s world most of the times.

guys wise up, quit being retarded
