Sounds like you need a better caliber of friends
People only talk shit over the internet because they know nothing is going to happen to them so they feel all high and mighty
if you approched someone like that something to their face IRL they'd either apologize or get offended/pissed.

The people you play the game with is like a bag of grapes. Do you stop eating the grapes just because a few of them were really small and sour?
People always talk shit about how bad the wow community is. Been playing since BC and there are very few incidents that were just absolutely as ridiculous as some people make them out to be. Sure, they were bad experiences, but I've had more fun playing the game and interacting with other players than not. People just get this illusion because they read too much shit posted by forum warriors or people who are just /b/tards.
Get yourself a thicker skin, crack that whip at those nerds with their monitor tans. Get all snippy and be like "really? fucking seriously?" prattle on about some shit about how they probably live with their mom and can't get a job and suck ass at everything in life including video games, and are taking out their frustration on you because getting laid is the most difficult boss encounter they have ever attempted.
On topic though, were they wrong? Probably, can't really get full context though but most likely. But you did fuck up after and get called out on it, shouldn't let it happen and/or when it does, just shit talk back.

That's kind of surprising, I mean not really but I would have thought they would try to flirt with you instead.
This is why I pretend I'm a guy and why I don't pvp with randoms, sadly. <- girl too. You guys guilty of this should be ashamed.
Like on my server, a guy and his girlfriend would occasionally pop up in trade chat... and all the guy would do is constantly smack-talk her in trade chat.
As for how to respond... I dunno. Smack talk 'em right back? "I'll be using your scrotum as a decorative change holder by the end of the match if you don't shut your trap and get back to playing!"

Jokes will be made and I've made fun of pretty much everyone, including females during raids of BGs I'm in vent with. The trick is when you're joking around to actually do it jokingly and not actually mean it, it's also something you shouldn't constantly repeat either as with everything.
Sounds like the OP just really had a bunch of douche bags. Most of the girls I play with don't mind mild sexist comments as long as it's not really meant and isn't something that you just constantly repeat over the course of the event. Being uptight about everything is bad too. The girls I play with will sling mud too, but it's all in good fun, so they aren't necessarily taken back when someone chimes back with "I can't hear you from the kitchen", which ironically is something they will say more than any male we play with lol.
As a whole I find the PvP community really awful and I've been gladiator multiple times over the years. There are some really good people who like the competition and also are actually good people. I find it worst at the bottom to mid level and at the very top. There are loads of ignorant males doing PvP and label themselves as "PvPers" who are just fucking god awful. Most of them lash out like this because they have really low self esteem and making somebody else feel bad is basically the only real joy they get out of the game.
Most of these people really do label themselves as "PvPers" and that PvE is for noobs. They usually trash talk pretty much everything and they typically have less than 1600 rating in 2s or 3s with hundreds of games played.
Sorry you had a bad experience in RBGs. RBGs are cancers anyways.

Unfortunately your performance kind of substantiated their initial concerns. I mean you admittedly played poorly that match and even went so far as to abandon the team.
Assholes or not, the fact that they find victims is more upsetting. I mean most of the girls I've know who fit in this cathegory are one step above totally stupid, what does that make the guys they screw over.
Then again this is WoW (refuge from Real Life for some people)...
People bashing other people on the internet is nothing new so whats the thread for?
The reason why a lot of people are so harsh towards girls is because still a large amount of the girls playing games are kinda attention whores... some in a very direct way, some a little bit more "discrete". In the end its also a fault of guys because lots of them actually WANT the girls to be attention whores, they want them to act the way they do and encourage them to do so by giving them the attention.
I personally really dont care wheather i play with girls or guys, but unfortunately you wont every get of group with 5 girls and 5 guys and all are ok... instead it will always be something like 2 girls and 8 guys and chances are quite high that at least one of the girls wants attention and then it really is annoying (at least if you want to play competitively). Of course its not only the girls fault but the guys who get an errection as soon as they hear a girl on vent and want to talk to her at all costs... but you cant kick 5 guys because of this, its easier to just noch invite the 1 girl.
Sadly the majority of WoW players are antisocial little shits. I encounter sexism, homophobia and racism on a daily basis and they seem to think it's OK. At the end of the day though you know in your mind that you are a good person and they are scum, that's all that counts.
The behaviour they showed is wrong, but can be explained also.
First you need to know that the average male wow player (not saying all, but average) is a single guy, usually in his early to late twenties. On average these guys are a bit of the nerdy, socially limited people. Now, this kind of guy does not communicate with females very often, if at all, therefore they are totally unsure about what to say or do when they get the attention of a female.
Now imagine a bunch of these guys playing together, sititng on skype, and a female joins them. None of them knows something nice to say to a female, so they resolve to making jokes about it, to hide the fact that they don't know any better and to impress the other nerds (nerds, like all other type of male, want to impress their fellow males, nerds in this case).
You totally should not be bothered by this, keep playing cause like i said this type of nerd is just the average male wow player, not all players are like them and if you keep joining pugs you will find a nice group eventually, stick around with them
If you want to observe / learn more about the nerd-type i described above, there is a golden chance for this, check the internet for a "friday night magic" close to your town, this is a gathering of MTG players and the exact type of nerd i described above flock there like bees to honey If you do go there, bring some deo to use on them because the smell is unbearable otherwise
