This is quite literally the dumbest ****ing thread ever created on mobafire. This easily tops half the ******ed **** jhoijhoi posts and complains about. The majority of gamers are male, it's appealing to a demographic, it has nothing to do with being sexist or discriminating against girl gamers.

I literally lost brain cells and intelligence reading this thread
Thanks for the Signature MissMaw!

Did you even do anything besides read the original post? Yes, the original article/video is stupid, I already said that and and I disagreed with at least half the points in it. A few of the points ARE true though.

I was asking for the opinions of people being described by the article though, since obviously I am not male, so thanks. ^^

So you just assumed I was agreeing with the concept (I don't particularly, which was half the point and that's why there's a "?" at the end of the title) without bothering to even look. Great excuse to spam a thread with rude comments that absolutely do not further any discussion going on, good job.

sadly i have no source because apparently ese completely ****ed up their site or something

but according to some studies/surveys 47% of gamers are female in the USA, up from 42% in 2013

if true, that would sort of lend credence to the whole "this is sexist" thing

i won't bother with your comment searz since not only is that incredibly off base and has literally nothing to do with this, but you haven't the slightest idea what the situation between her and me is right now, so yeah.

i agree 100% with what nameless has said in this thread

and i'd advise you to do the same, because she actually is a girl

Is it actually that difficult to not be completely biased and harsh? In certain situations or I can even call out in nearly every situation being kind and polite is the way to deal with everything in my honest opinion especially if you haven't got experience with the topic.
Thanks to Aquilegia for this sig!

Take your **** comments elsewhere please. Or better yet, learn to stop posting ****.
Nameless and most people in this thread are actually quite negative towards the article posted in the OP.
"I sexually Identify as an Attack Helicopter. Ever since I was a boy I dreamed of soaring over the oilfields dropping hot sticky loads on disgusting foreigners. People say to me that a person being a helicopter is Impossible and I’m ****ing ******ed but I don’t care, I’m beautiful. I’m having a plastic surgeon install rotary blades, 30 mm cannons and AMG-114 Hellfire missiles on my body. From now on I want you guys to call me “Apache” and respect my right to kill from above and kill needlessly. If you can’t accept me you’re a heliphobe and need to check your vehicle privilege. Thank you for being so understanding." - Guuse

"uh, I identify as counterstrike and I find this globally offensive" - ???

I only wanted to say, that you can't fix it by going directly against in-game harassment, you'd only cut of a single tree branch.
Indeed, but it's a start, no?

I don't expect anyone to just agree with me because I happen to have a vagina and therefore can insist men have some sort of privilege, that's not what this is about.

I hope that wasn't directed at me.

And we're never gonna forget the stupid things you did :)
They were just way too spectacular :D

Good attitude. +1
