In the current era, nobody really cares if you're a woman or a man playing a game, as long as you're having fun while playing, that's what matters.
All I have to say is you go girls. I always wondered why there wasn't more girls playing video games out there. But I've really enjoyed playing a lot of online games with people and randomly finding out one day that they were a girl. It didn't matter to me what gender they were. But it made me happy to know that my orc Barbarian friend was actually a 5 ft two girl.
The idea of female gamers being harassed simply due to gender is abhorrent and yet it still continues in some communities. They are seen as lesser by some male gamers, which, in my opinion, is ridiculous. Gender is irrelevant when it comes to video games, everyone can have fun and get better as they play.
Female gamers have every right to game as guys do, and can be just as skilled, or even more skilled at it than guys. Sharing the same passion and enjoyment of games. The harassment and stereotyping of female gamers, or even some going so far as to say they are not true female gamers, is something that has to stop. As it is abhorrent and sexist, there should be no place for misogyny in gaming. Inclusivity and respect are what gaming needs. I hope I see the change needed as time goes on, and hopefully, I have the chance to game with some awesome female gamers.
