Raider: Are you a girl or a 14 year old boy?
Girl gamer: I’m a 14 year old boy.
Girl gamer is left alone for the rest of the pug.
When someone unironically says “haha girls don’t play WoW!” what they’re really saying is, “I make all the women I encounter in-game so uncomfortable they prefer to remain invisible to me and don’t even know it.”
I’ve never had anyone harass me after speaking in vent. I’ve also never had anyone tell me (not counting sarcastically) that girls don’t play WoW. I don’t want to say it doesn’t happen (because I’m sure it does every now and then), but shit, I sincerely doubt it’s a common occurrence.
