9354.) I wish I was friends with the people I follow and the people who follow me on Tumblr in real life. I wish they lived down the street. I wish they went to school with me, had the same classes. I wish they were real. I wish they were my real friends.
9 months in her stomach is suffocating. That's not the ending. When after 9 months, the pain will be unbearable, she forces us to come out. Although she yells at times, it's for our own good. You might have a big argument or maybe a fight with her but at the end of the day she stills buy you ice cream.
My day in gamerland…
Was not fun. As a matter of fact, it was downright depressing.
The first incident came when someone posted to a YouTube video I had uploaded about a game glitch that I am “the nerdiest, wordiest bitch this side of shut the fuck up”.
From there it went downhill. From people sending me ‘questionable’ private messages in one game (you wanna put your “Richard” WHERE on my Necromancer?) to having someone say “hay baby” to me over mic in another while chasing me around the lobby (and then proceed to blow me up with dynamite when I proceeded to beat the fuck out of his score), I have been continually reminded of the bullfuckery my gender has to put up with in a field where thumbs should reign supreme. Not dangly bits.
Well you know what, guys? Girl gamers aren’t a fad. We’re here to stay. And wether your fragile egos will admit it or not, we’re just as good, or better in some cases, as you are. Now if you’d get your dicks out of your asses and treat us like just another gamer we’d get along fine.
Until that happens, however, I’ll kindly request that the next time I put a bullet between your characters eyes/thighs you say “Thank you ma’am”.
And go make me a sandwich. Don’t forget the cheese.
The Debate: Girl Gamers
Okay, so I’ve never done a Tumblr text blog post before and I’ve never written a proper gaming related article, so forgive me if this post sounds a little lame.
The issue of the sterotypes of girls gamers has just poped into my head, because I myself is one. Now, I’m not going to rant and tell you how individual I am, and how ‘neglected I feel from gaming sociey’ because people do sometimes judge me.
I am just honestly sick of people asking me the same questions over and over again: “What’s it like to beat a guy in an XBox Live Game?” “Do you feel different by being into a ‘guy thing” To be honest, no. I feel like the rest of the gaming community, gaming to have fun and most importanlty, gaming because I love it.
In my opinion, female gamers are NOT neglected in society. Gaming has become a part of what I would call culture, where all type of individuals are getting involved, from different types of genders, religion, race ect. whether it be Angry Birds on the i-pod touch or Marvel Vs Capcom 3 on the next gen consoles. You will notice now that there are more games which feature lead female characters who are kick ass, which can attract women and men. Women are not used as damsels in distress as much as they were back in the 80s and early 90s. These are women that some girls aspire to be. Women who can handle a tough situation and women who have goals and motives, just like majority of the male characters seen in video games. Also, women who can fend for themselves without male assistance can be very appealing for gamers; such as Lara Croft in the lateset Tomb Raider installment (TBA)
I’m kind of getting off topic, but hopefully, with game companies recognizing the more broader audience in gaming, hopefully the uproar about ‘Being A Female Gamer’ will die down, with games these days being attracted to both male and female audiences.
