Loads of us around.

I'll probably get flamed for saying it like this.. but the 'REAL' girl-gamers don't tend to make themselves known... I mean the one's that actually play games because they like games and not male attention.

My game play and how good I can play has always been judged on what I have between my legs. But I've played in alot of top guilds in the past in many games and mainly that's because I let them see me play and shizzle before I made my gender known.

agree wholeheartedly with you, almost never make my gender known for the same reason.

Plenty. Don't know why people still seem to think there are no girls in the games, I find that there's usually a good deal of us.

Edit: Am I the only one who is bothered by the fact that as a girl gamer, it sometimes seem like you have to almost hide your gender to avoid getting accused of using it for attention? I don't usually go around advertising my gender, but I've had people tell me that I was "just trying to get their attention for being a girl" when I asked if my husband could join our group. Yeah, cause I was so trying to use that as a pick-up line <.<

Or if a girl dare to correct someone calling her "him", both guy and girl gamers often react like if the girl is trying to flaunt just being a girl, however, who would ever look at a guy like that if he corrected someone calling him "she"?


Once again, I usually don't go around advertising my gender, I just get tired of the hypocrisy and having to actively lie, just to hide the fact that I'm a girl, or people will blame me for just trying to get attention.

Gamergirls are not that special anymore, but it only changes once people start treating it as being normal <.<

As a male, I ONLY play female characters in the game. Why? Well why would I want to spend god knows how many hours staring male toon when I could be doing the exact same thing with a female toon?

Hell, half of my guild, who are males, play female toons for the same reason.

So why would it be weird at all if a female played a male toon?

However, the better question would be, why should anyone care what gender the player is? And if you do care, I can pretty much guarantee that you are a sexist piece of ****.

My mom plays game :I Yes I know lol. She plays female toons. everyone has their own preference. But thats the only female I know who plays. I like female toons because they usually have better attack animations, but I quickly figured out all animations are the same except for the run animations and voices. disappointed but meh...

I'm female.

I play both male and female toons, why? Because I want to and I don't think the gender of my pixels should matter to anyone else. I also almost never inform anyone in game that I'm female, there is no reason to I don't want free credits, or creeper "male" attention so there is no reason to let them know. When I'm on my male toons I respond to him comments, when I'm on my female toons I respond to her comments. My guild in WOW knows I'm a girl, I don't have a guild in SWTOR yet and when I do get in one there will come a time when I will tell them but I won't use it to try to get into the guild.

I think that people pay for this game with their money and should play this and any other game the way THEY want to if that means they are male and play females, females that play males then fine it's their game why should it matter?

As for the OP's problem most of the real girl players won't run around start zones yelling I'm a girl who else is and most of the real girl players also won't respond to those that are doing that either.
