Some of the best pvp'ers in the game are women and stream. So while your story may in fact be true, of the 3+ years that I've played and having gotten Hero of the Horde and done a LOT of rbg's and arena, I find your story hard to believe.
Here's what's going on. With the anonymity of the internet, guys can say what they're always wanting to say anyways. They've just been trained like dogs to keep it bottled up inside because society is ashamed of it. No guy thinks a girl is their equal, except when mob mentality makes him think they''ll be punished for saying otherwise. I wish I had better news for you, but that's the reality.
The same could be said for guys.
But since there are more guys than girls playing the game (exact figures I am not aware of, but I am using some common sense on this one), than you're likely to run into more "meh" guys players, even IF the female meh players are more memorable because they're female.
I can't post that in caps
Having said that... PuG PvE is lame enough, PuG PvP is all a massive epeen fest mostly anyway; so probably the worst in-game environment for that behaviour
She doesn't have to prove anything just because it's a girl/woman. She should play with normal people and not with idiots. Don't pug.
bullshit imo, if u have glad and shits, then they know u're good
2nd u fucked up and well ofc they gonna insult you/kick etc, happens in every rbg pug..
"We live in a world where a style of play that uses posession and passing to try and make spaces is made fun of.
While a style of play where a team sits back for 90 minutes and breaks away in 1v1 situations is respected."
- Ronald Koeman.
Look at the members of the best guilds in the world or great guilds, almost all male.
Stop turning this into a male bashing thread, really, you're digressing the thread, you clearly have issues with men based on your anecdotal evidence.
Significantly more males play this game than females, and there are significantly more top ranking male players and male players in general. That also means there are going to be more male asshats, some will be average, bad, or decent, but they're all male players, so the ratio is significantly larger.
I'm not saying that to bash women, I'm just pointing out your incredibly flawed comparison.

I know most of my friends that are girls think I'm a bit of a nut for playing as much as I do. Top end raiders can literally pretty much say WoW is a part time job with some weeks over near FT hours.
