Most Helpful Girl
No. The social construct is a culmination of 2 major factors:
1) gaming is viewed as a primarily male centric pass time
2) gaming is very informal.
Would you rather they called you "Madame [username]"?
Chances are most of the time they are male, gotta hedge your bets.
Besides I bet the number of women who wished guys thought they were guys online, greatly outnumber the ones who want to be noticed as a girl
I call everyone dude online I never had anyone (male or female) say they had a problem with it I'd like to know what girls would prefer so I don't offend anyone later on
Lol too funny I see it happen too.
I don't care enough to get upset over something like that. Usually if they refer to their whole group as if they were all male and I were in it. I'd react more like "Oh ok, leaving me out is always nice" sarcastically.
Nah. Most gamers are guys so it would be normal to refer to everyone as a dude. I don't see a problem with it
Brother, yes. Dude, no, since I call everyone dude anyway and don't mind it being used for me.
nope. because I use the word Dude with everyone. not brother though. brother is kinda weird I think
No I don't really care, I call girls dude and bro so I think it's fine and I'd rather that then rude names
Lol it is annoying but I use the opposite when they call me "dude" or "brother" i. e sister and girl lol and they don't say anything tho, we just talk as normal.
Eh, I don't care as long as they aren't calling me baby and all that.
They think you are a guy, and that's better anyways, less if your team shooting you in the back and trying to make it look like they are tag teaming your corpse 👍
No not really, especially since it’s become a relatively general term to address someone. Gender not really mattering.
No, dude is a universal term. As for brother... That wouldn’t be the ideal
I actually don't mind it. I get really into the game either way and I joke around with them.
Oh god yes
Yeah dude. Fucking hate that.
I know people do that to me
Meh I don’t really care. I call people “man” or “dude” all the time, even my girl friends. The same way I call everyone “girl”... example:
“You’re right, man!”
“GIRL what are you doing”
No one really comments on it
The only thing I don’t like is if people start flirting with me. Also I have my name jess in my username and they all assume I’m Jesse (guy way of spelling) instead of Jessica.
