Girls Gone WoW - The New Battle of the Sexes

GameAlmighty's Trina Williams writes, "If a girl walks into a classroom or a store in America she's not likely to hear guys yelling about how hot she is or ask her about her bra size.

perseus4571d ago's just that the world is full of socially retarded cowards who use the internet (and multiplayer games) as places to say things they would never have the courage to say in real life.

Wow is just a game like any other game, so calling people who play it losers is kinda like calling yourself a loser, isn't it? Behavior in WoW is typical of all Online games, like Halo, when women are present. There is a fraction of people who only behave because they fear reprisal or punishment. Unlike the real world there is infinitely less risk acting like this online, so the people who were inhibited are now free to act out how they really feel. This isn't typical behavior of all people who chat or play online.

They sound like a bunch of geeks and losers to me,instead of feeling hurt or insulted by them,you should feel sorry for them really.

It happens in real life as well. Only it's rather rare because it takes one to be single minded and reckless as well as feeling absolutely secure about the social consequences. What does that show us? There are a way more single minded and reckless males that act like that when social consequences in online gaming are almost non existent.
