    Why do gamer girls often hide it?

    Edit: So I just wanted to know why alot of gamer girls IRL hide that they like gaming ?

    Don't think too much about this, it's just my curiosity!

    Its just not a huge fuss, whats the big deal? Its rather annoying when a girl shoves in your face the fact that shes a girl who plays video games, truth is, so what? Welcome to this century where girls can do what guys can, too.

    For the same reasons many male gamers hide that they're gaming? People in general still have pretty bad preconceptions of gamers and gaming culture in general, not to mention gaming isn't something you really can discuss with non-gamers anyway.

    Probably because they think it's nerdy or a guy thing which aint true at all

    Part of it is some girls flaunt it, creating a bad rep for those who don't rely on their tits, so they become more reserved
    There are creepers online as well, which have actually stalked friends for years cross server

    The vast majority just doesn't seem to care however

    I know it's not a big deal, I was just interested so I thought I'd make a thread cause gamer girls are cool and imo they shouldn't hide it:P but that's just my take on it

    Usually because of the bad reception that gamers in general get, and the fact that anything men are looked down upon for, women are looked down upon twice as hard.

    Because they are ashamed what people will think of them (Fat, nerdy, ugly girl), and its vice versa with alot of men too, personally i don't care what people think when i tell them i play WoW.

    Yeah I don't think most girls consider it a big deal that they have to announce to the world. Just the opposite, most girls I know in game roll their eyes and talk smack when there's someone in trade or a pug who does make a big deal out of being a girl. They don't want special treatment for being a girl, and it bothers them when other girls do -- because inevitably some people start acting and talking differently when they know or think a girl is present.

    I think the appropriate question is:

    "Why do the GOOD gamer girls hide the fact that they're female? And why do the horrible gamer girls promote the fact that they're female in any situation regardless of how off topic or relevant it is?"

    because they don't want asshole guys to stalk them.
    This games filled up with people of the mentality of a 12 year old.
    Honestly, I have no interests in girls on WoW nor do I see why anyone else does...

    Thats just how I view the situation, I wouldn't say girl gamers are ashamed, some are, but not all.

    And yes, creepy guys are creepy. Do not want.

    So the terrible ones can be attention whores and get free loots. They thrive on the attention... they're mentally unstable.
