15 Things You Should Never Say To A Girl Gamer

Basically, don't be a jerk.

Posted on

5. "Did your boyfriend get you into gaming?"

I'm not saying that every girl gets into gaming on her own, but I promise that we don't just do things because our significant others wants us to.

7. "If you don't want to be called out as a female, don't use such a 'girly' tag!"

Some people actually enjoy the RP factor of games. Also, what about the guys that have 'girly' tags or vice versa?

8. "If you don't like the female character option, just play a male."

Again, some of us like the RP factor of games. I'm not saying that there shouldn't be options for the bikini style armor or anything like that… I'm just saying that I should get to have more options than just the bikini armor.

9. "Shouldn't you be in the kitchen?"

The sexist clichés category really gets under my skin. You may think it's funny but in reality, it's not. It paints you as a chauvinist and it instantaneously makes me like you less.

10. "You must be a fat/ugly [insert rude adjective] [expletive]."

Why? Because I play games and automatically any girl that plays video games is fat and/or ugly? Don't start name calling because you're insecure.

11. "Do you need help?" "Do you want me to level all your characters for you?" "Here is half of my gold!" "Marry me!!"

This one seems like a weird thing to complain about but, it's condescending. If I need help, I'll ask for help. Please stop treating me differently because I'm a woman!

15. "I heard you're an epic mount." "Nice skirt you're wearing, what's the drop rate?" "If I was a NES cartridge, would you blow me?"

Gaming pick-up lines just make me want to vomit. There is nothing appealing or clever about them… most of the time it'll just end with us laughing at you.
