    Lets just say I play... elsewhere. Doesn't really exist there and would not be tolerated (which makes it kinda pathetic that it can just keep happening where you are)... I do not envy people who have to put up with that crap.

    I mean really, gonna lose because a girl is there?? How rude. I suppose you could have informed them that of course they are absolutely right you all would lose, but only because they're so concerend over you being a girl and can't stop acting stupid!

I am sick to death of people trying to equalize everyone. People are not all equal. They excel in some areas and underperform in others its just the way it goes. Having said that I don't condone bullying of any sort. Those people in the rbg talking shit might be right but they don't need to belittle someone in a public forum.

    Please don't make huge generalizations based on sex.

    They were all probably just jerks with commitment issues and decide to drive every girl away because they know they don't have a chance at ending up with one.

    Stereotyping in a thread about dealing with female gamer stereotypes. Nice.

    This wasn't the point of the thread. I never denied that there are gender differences. There are gender differences, and yes, girls tend to be more sensitive in general than guys. I am also quite shy and so I can't take being yelled at like that. The point of the thread was to discuss and share opinions on how this can be dealt with better and whether or not it is a common issue.

    The point is, sometimes girls get verbally abused due to pure gender alone on games. People may not be equal, but that doesn't make it right to stereotype an entire gender and then abuse them based on the stereotype. It's very frustrating because there ARE great female players. We don't have to accept that shit like this happens. Having randoms abuse you based on gender ALONE is NOT acceptable. It still isn't acceptable for someone to abuse a 'bad player' no matter what gender but at least it's understandable.

    Ironically that's exactly what she tried to do and it went terribly wrong.

    Personally if I was in such a situation (I'm not a chick, but there are still times in my life when groups of people have ganged up on me for no good reason) I'd just leave immediately. It's a lose/lose imo. If you do really poorly they jump down your throat, if you do really well then you just helped a bunch of douchenozzles win a RBG. In fact, what would have been epic is if you just started trolling them hardcore. Just fucking up everything and causing them to lose. They'd definitely think twice before giving a chick the business next time.

    But yea, It's just not worth it. Now you know how this scenario plays out and you can better avoid it in the future.

    They had a stereotype and you reinforced it. Next time either quit at the get go or don't fail by choosing to not paying attention. Right or wrong, it is what it is.

    Sometimes stereotypes simply are true. Those three groups of people are much more likely to be aggressive and verbally abusive in online multiplayer games.

    Not condoning the behavior, but it likely stems from the fact PvPers tend to be a very curious group. They treat the game more like an FPS than an MMORPG. And in the FPS community, well in keeping with most of the barrel-bottom internet communities, see females as a lesser species who are only good at cooking.
    You don't create "justice" by destroying. That includes buildings, cars, or the careers of the people you want "justice" for.

When both are in peak condition the slate is even. Men have a larger sample size than women when it comes to athletic statistics as well, mostly because women are fed inaccurate rubbish that their biology limits them from competing.
    There are women who try to be as big as men regardless of the shit telling them they can't but literally a women and men when working as hard as they can will never be equal in a physical related way. There is a reason men are only special forces in the military. I'm not being sexist, this is actual biology, in fact some men actually have it much easier than other men when it comes to building bulky muscle because they have a certain chemical that some men have more of than others (forget what the chemical is called).

    I know girls in high school that ran as much, if not even more than guys and still could never keep up with them in cross country. They have to work a lot harder and even then... It's difficult.

    Well, retards can be found anywhere. : / I don't see how the gender matter in a game really. I have played with many females in WoW, many really great but some are completely retarded, as is it for guys. When I did RBG in Cata, it was a woman that led the team, she was fucking awesome, we won most matches with her there.

    I have never joined a pug RBG, but will probably never do, prefer to just run with a guild. Just ignore that bunch of monkeys and hope you get to join some good teams instead. : )

    Sure they might have made some comments but really that should make you strive to do better.

    I have a feeling, a very strong feeling in fact, that OP left something out, as someone who always hates to hear about this sort of thing in WoW, it rarely, if ever, happens like this. I have a strong feeling something else happened and its being led into this kind of story.

    Honestly, I left nothing out. The only thing I can think of that I left out was that when I first spoke I took so long to answer and they were getting mad, because they said my name wrong and I didn't understand; I mentioned that they said my name wrong to which one of them mimicked "you said my name wrong" in the nastiest tone ever. Nothing of importance at all unless something so small and unrelated can make them all mad. I suppose I was just extremely unlucky to run into this bunch, and they were really serious for only being 1800-2k rated.

    I wish I thought of recording it so I could show everyone how vile it was and hopefully it wouldn't happen to anyone again.

    Of course there is sexism in game, it is played by real people. It is not a good thing, but look around at people's transmogs. If the character is female and 'dressed' like a whore do you think that is a balanced adult playing or someone with his own views on what women are for? And in the EU there are players from nations that have no respect for women, you think they have a balanced view? Accept that some males are pathetic and unsure about themselves, and some are very young and trying to be 'clever' and treat them with the contempt they deserve.

    Ah, except that initially they weren't because I messed up! The comments were because I'm a girl!
