Assholes play games online

Last night was my first time witnessing the horror of a gal revealing her gender in an online game.

I was playing Halo 3 last night waiting for my wife to finish up whatever she was doing on the computer...

when during my last match, a gal expressed her feelings to being taken out... a normal smack talk kind of thing.

Immediately followed up with about 3-5 guys saying something like "Girl?" "is that a girl!?" "Wait a minute we've got a lady!" etc...

She quickly announces that this is the point where she shuts her microphone off because she doesn't want to deal with it.

Then, one person... who [censored] about someone on his own team (same as me) killed him. Swearing and cussing about someone doing it... just keeps one about this girl.

I am annoyed to say the least... I repeatedly tell him to shut it and play. But this guy wouldn't take shut up... he just kept going on and on and on about this girl...

What the hell? Seriously? But, I can figure who that player was... and his gamertag didn't lead me to believe he was all that mature to begin with...

but damn... how do people seriously think that kind of treatment will get them a phone number, email address or whatever? Really?!

I can understand why some ladies stay away from online gaming like that because of stupid stupid people who can't treat a female with respect (like anyone else)... but then again, these are the people who can't treat anyone with respect... **rolls eyes**

Too bad I didn't figure out for sure who that person was, I would give them a terrible review of their gameplay attitude.



little bit of a Monday rant... sorry....

there is a lot more to the story, but its not really relevant.

It's a dang shame when some people can't get over the concept of ladies being able to play games like Halo as well. It's amusing when these people can't get over the concept of a female mopping the virtual floor with them either. I've read some articles about the female gaming community. There's even some girl only guilds out there and they dominate.

Ah well.. the men that need it can get their egos crushed and obliterated, then make way for the rest of us who just want to frag as much as the next person, regardless of who's on the other end of the connection.

This is where I wondered how those "Gamer Chix" nights go on Xbox live....
