Rest In Peace, World of Warcraft. Subscriber count doesn't matter, WoW has been dead in spirit for a while
Rest In Peace, Star Wars the Old Republic. SWTOR is a fun RPG, but a bad MMO
If the gm was white knighting her or something well I wouldn't be in a guild that bad in the first place.
This thread is about hardcore guilds specificly and in hardcore guilds the gm actually gives a shit about whats going on and what negatively affects the purpose of the guild (killing bosses) and will deal with it.
…our results do not support the stereotype that women are better at multitasking. Women suffer as much as men when forced to multitask and are actually less inclined to multitask when being free to choose.
Humans in general are bad at multitasking. All they do is switch between tasks very fast. Real multitasking is nearly impossible for humans.
Because that involves them talking to a girl..
Everyone would stop talking in vent after hearing your voice and that isn't good for raiding since well.. you need to talk.

That's a disgrace if a guild has that has a requirement. The gamer should be recruited based on skills not gender.

perfect example why girls are most likely to cause drama:
I was 5min ago on my low lvl shaman(83), then i joined lfd and called insta, i entered in a group from the same guild with 2 hunters, 1 warrior and 1 dk tank.
first pull, all the mobs turned to me and we wiped, i got into rage cuz the "tank" died with 3 hits, so i said: "you get hit like a girl".. we ran back, 1 hunter waited for rez, i reszed him...
second pull the tank died again, and i was like "dafuq" then i realized he was on unholy presence the whole time (they had already downed 2 bosses when i joined)
i got into rage again, then the warrior said to me: "why are you so mad at the tank when you are bad..."
and then the hunter said: "he is mad cause he can't heal stacy, shamans suck" (guess is the tank name, a girl)
then i said she was on unholy presence, and they said it was my fault and she is starting in the game now, i should have warned her...
do you know what was this? if the tank was a guy their friends would said he was bad and make him into blood presence, just cause she was a girl they didn't said anything, and blamed me because SHE was wrong..
girls always cause drama, directly or indirectly, you can easily say to a dude "fuck off", in their face on vent, but most guys don't have the balls to do the same if the player is a girl (not my case)
although in my guild we have 1 female who do her job pretty well, our best healer is a female (but she is like 36++ years old) but then again she is an exception, all the other females i met in the game, caused some type of drama, or was the main cause of male drama (defending her)
The only "real" (yet to me not valid) reason could be that they fear that the women get prioritised because... well, they're girls. Some raid leaders do that, or some member who got benched could say "she only got the spot before me because she's a girl", true or not, that could lead to irritation in a guild.
Maybe they had bad experiences with that.
But I say, it's pretty low to reject someone for being female alone. If someone, m or f, doesn't fit into your group, don't accept them, period.
No point mentioning these bats, I thought. The poor bastard will see them soon enough.
Mature/Socially Adjusted Males interacting with Mature/Socially Adjust Females = No Problems
Immature/Socially unadjusted Males/Females interacting with anyone = Problems
Guess which there is more of in WoW? It isn't that females cause drama necessarily, it is that immature/socially unadjusted males/females don't know how to handle situations appropriately, which leads to drama. You can have a guild that is 100% male explode in drama, keeping the women out is only going to delay the inevitable.
Because for the most part, females playing an MMO are attention whores who will drag your guild down and expect preferential treatment based on their chest and other miscellaneous lady parts.
I may pay my subscription every month, but I don't lose sight of the fact that the other 4/9/24/39 people I'm grouped with pay too.
And also, isn't the whole point of your story that the male friend defended the girl? Isn't it the case that the male friend was in fact the one causing the 'drama' then?
Bad players come in both genders, and it's ridiculous to say that guys don't defend their bad male guildies. There's literally thousands of stories if you search of people trolling the pugs on behalf of their guildies. It happens all the time. It's not because they're female, it's your own sexism that's leading you to make that assumption. I've died as a tank because I didn't get heals for over a minute and the healers guildmates screamed and raged at me for being a baddie and it being my fault etc etc, it happens, it is sadly normal, you aren't a speacial snowflake being persecuted.

Most of the guys don't realize that actually males causes the drama, because they like to defend female friends. It's not actually girls fault.
And I know lot of guys who do defend their male friends too. Friends are friends even they are bad players.
