Why do people especially girls generalize gamer girls NEGATIVELY?

I don't understand? If a girl plays actual video games then that's that. Why be like ew she whoring in the lobby to get guys? Or girls shouldn't play because... Sexism? Jealousy?

  • Because why is there a gender in there? Why do girls feel the need to distinct themselves from other gamers by placing their gender in there? You are just a gamer, no need to put the 'girl' in there. It implies you try to get attention by putting emphasis on your gender thinking it gives you a special status since gamers are typically male and you are female. Fuck this attention grabbing bullshit, it has no place in gaming.

  • I play video games myself and know other girls who do too, we usually play in parties on Call of Duty, haha... but there are some girls that are wanting to get guys through playing these games, which is somewhat smart because there aren't that many girls that play video games but overall dumb. Then there are the girls that are just the living definition of "video-game slut", they have no idea how the controls even work, flirts with the players via mic, and/or asks to "meet up". The girls like this amuse me and disgust me.

  • Eh, I like it. I like gaming and would love to find a girl I could play MMOs or RTSes or whatever other type of game with.

    I don't like the girls that get all crazy about games and start yelling and stuff, but I don't like guys that do that either. Obnoxious is obnoxious.

  • I don't get that mindset. I think girls who play videogames are cool.

    Like fart said: gammer girls > party girls.

  • I think it's cute a girl is a gamer , honestly i think some guys get jealous cause they will get beat by the girl. I saw some where on Television this father gave
    his son hell for getting rude with this girl while they were gaming. Some guys
    are immature is why these things happen why they get rude with gamer girls.

  • I've never generalized them in that way, they're fun to play with and decent change from the kids that are normally online. Though I'd be lying if I did say it was to make the troll kids cry.

  • I don't understand it. I guess it probably just comes from gaming industry being so male-dominated for the majority of it's existence.

    For me, a girl MUST be a gamer to be date-able!

    I don't even use the term "gamer girl", I just refer to "gamer".

  • My best friend is a gamer girl XD I love games too, playing them since i was a child... I was labeled negatively as well like being called a nerd , geek , kid who plays games etc,, But i do agree girls get even more hate.
    Nothing to do about it , just do what you like to do and ignore people who calls you lets say a nolifer but in same time they spend 24/7 on facebook or something smh.

  • I'm a big gamer myself and I don't think it's wrong for girls to be gamers, in fact I respect every girls and yes even if she is a real whore sleep with men for money I don't find her less than other woman or any person but that's not the case, I think that everything that guys are allowed to do so girls allowed too, if video games is wrong for girls then it should be wrong for guys too...
    I actually want my dream girl to be gamer as me.

  • To many of us guys, many gamer girls come off as trying too hard to be "one of the guys" so it put's us off.

    To other guys, gaming is a "boys only" thing. It's sad.

      what's wrong with playing passionately or trying hard lol?

    • 1mo

      It leaves many guys thinking; "Okay we get it, you wish you could trade your vagina for a dick. Just please shut up."

  • It'd be like me basing my entire identity on being British. It's annoying.
    ... Wait...

  • People like that aren't worth worrying about. They are the types who have their head in their butt. So most of what they have to say is going to be crap.

    Ignore the occasional craps ya encounter and life will be all the better.

      I don't understand why another human being would criticize a female for playing games. It's just a hobby.

    • 1mo

      Some human beings like to talk a lot. Attend to your hobby with no fucks given.

  • I don't think bad about gamer girls, instead I love them. Also my friends love them, don't think they are playing to get guys.

  • Often times, it's probably a generalization that the girls only "play" games to attract attention from guys.

      what do you mean? Are you saying the stupid stereotype of slutty girls fucking a controller or the youtubers?

    • 1mo

      no most of the gamer girls show titty and dress a certain way
      and the dumbass 12 year olds actually give them money cause there dumb
      the older guys don't give them crap

      its so stupid

  • I really don't know. Every guy I've ever dated thinks gamer girls are awesome and I've even had to compete with gamer chicks for guys before. But I think a lot of our parents' generation has a view that women need to be pretty, delicate little creatures who spend their time primping and reading chick lit.

  • It's similar to whoring, that's why. They aren't attractive enough to get a guy, so they spread their legs/play video games to get the attention of desperate losers. It's pathetic.
