Gender Equality in Pseudo-Cyber-Warfare


If I may use the parlance of the communities in question:

NO FUCKING SHIT, BBC.

Do you know why women are verbally abused and sexually harassed while gaming online? It's because men are verbally abused and sexually harassed while gaming online. Or during high school sporting matches. Cheerleader? "Kill the other team" and all that jazz? It's to get in your opponents heads and hurt them emotionally. You're trying to crush their spirit. It's Tokyo Rose and antisemitic leaflets dropped over the Ardennes. Break the fighting spirit and you break the army.

Ladies, please, play the online games. We love "gamer grrlz," because they are essentially men wrapped in sexy, sexy lady parts. They'll not only get our CoD references, they'll laugh at them and then call in a nuclear strike on our wing-wangs. We're okay with this.

But, Jesus, get with the program. They let you into the army. This is the same emotional toll. No one's going to baby you when you get called an "Ass-faced sperm-dumpniggerfaggotkikespic" by an eleven year-old with ADHD who took the day off from gym class to eat Cheetos and play Modern Warfare in bed all morning.

We've all been there.

His name is Chris and we've all agreed to kick his ass when he turns 17. Just deal with it and sign your RSVP card to The Gathering.
