Eh I'd argue that hiding from it only perpetuates the problem.
Take it, handle it, and show them that you're here for good. Bonus points if you can play just as good as they can. You have to face stereotypes head-on and build a new trend such that when people bring up the stereotype, people eventually just start saying "well that's not always the case" and slowly they fade out and only fragments of that idea are left behind.
I think another problem with it is that boys don't want to be beat by a girl. Brings up painful childhood teasing memories. YOU THROW LIKE A GIRL etc.
Sexism on both sides, all around.
Girls are mean to girls
Guys are mean to guys
Girls are mean to guys
Guys are mean to girls.
Conclusion: Humans are mean to one another.
Solution: Give less fucks.
