@25: At the same time though, I'd argue there are a lot of casual female gamers who don't see a need to say hey, I'm a gamer and I'm a girl' types. There's a lot of reasons for this. That being said, yes, I agree females do get intimidation on games, but it is absolutely not a one way street at all. Women can, in some cases be just as vindictive and as intimidating as men for various reasons. Men can be just as intimidating to other men as well, and women can be just as intimidating to other women.
@1: Think before you post.
Don't go after a whole group and not expect resistance or people debunking your arguments....which have zero evidence you've presented at all. You've simply made a wild claim. Just like your history of wild claims, the highlight probably being threatening to report Microsoft for ADA violations.
I don't care if you're blac, white, Asian, Somali, Mexican, Russian, CHinese or whatever. I only care you're the best hire for a job. Does that hurt minorities? Yes and no. It hurts them in the sense that they miss out on a job. But it helps in the sense that companies can hire the best candidate for a position.
