Can I just play my games in freaking peace? Seriously, all of this "gamer" ******** leaves me bitter towards the gaming culture. It's a hobby. People do it for a good time. That's it.

Knew a girl who liked to play games a lot.
She used to sort of babysit me when i was over.

Boy did she ******* rage when playing Mario.
Blamed me for breathing when she lost her last life on the boss lvl,smashed the console and walked out swearing.

Ay,she was cool.

I've played games my whole life.

But I won't ever say I'm a "gamer". I just call it playing games.

Everyone does it sometimes.

I do it for 12 hours in a row, someone else does it for 30 minutes. Doesn't make me special. Doesn't make them special. It's just something you do with your free time.

I wouldnt call it that, i think i have this thing called, "pride" and my no life, had sex once, waistless life for videogames makes me think that, if you sacrifice your time to be dominant on those games, then its pride, and im not buff, nor good looking, i sacrificed ALL of that to become a Gamer, THOSE GIRLS DONT!

If you play video games every once in a while or all the time it all boils down to being a gamer.
If you have a console or machine with any type of interactive digital entertainment properties, I would consider you to be a gamer.
Trust me, I'm Wario.

In a sense, if they are playing a game on iPhone, yes.

playing flash games does not make you a gamer..

In its own way, yes, you are simply a different type of gamer.

Most competitive video games revolve around asserting your superiority through force. Which is inherently a male thing.

Women, however, assertain their superiority in different ways, mostly through subterfuge.

Thus, most women have an aversion to competitive games, because when someone asserts their superioirty over a woman through force, she feels violated. Because they are not used to that - no one will ever try to do that to them in real life, because it's against social norms. Men, however, deal with that almost every day, it's just a normal part of male interaction.

That's where the "They beat me, I feel raped!" thing comes from - someone asserted their superioirty over them through force, and they don't know how to feel about that since that just doesn't happen to them. So they equate it to the most simmilar thing they can think of - rape.

I'm not really trying to justify that - yelling rape because someone beat you in a videogame is rather dumb, but I'm just trying to give a bit of an insight on why such a dumb thing even happens.
User avatar #365 to #20 - cabbagemayhem ONLINE (08/09/2013) [-]
1. Women don't show superiority through subterfuge. When they are in conflict, they try to damage their enemy's reputation or self-esteem through words.
2. If asserting your superiority over men through force is a normal part of male interaction, then asserting your superiority over women through force is a normal part of male-female interaction.
3. I know of at least two women who enjoy asserting their superiority through force in video games, and don't cry when they lose. Although, I'm sure this is the minority. Most girls have never experienced real opposition, and have an over-inflated sense of strength
User avatar #37 to #20 - amegaara (08/09/2013) [-]
the "they beat me i feel raped" is form an article from kotaku (might be a fictional one which 4chan made but i dont know)
#130 to #20 - anon (08/09/2013) [-]
well those are some broad generalizations of entire genders you got there buddy.
#150 to #130 - delivering (08/09/2013) [-]
The harsh truth is that, yes, whole genders can be generalized on some things. General differences in upbringing between genders, social expectations, inherent differences in brain structure, different influence of hormones, all of which forms certain patterns of behaviour etc,
In this case, the generalization pertains mostly to genders in western countries, but still some things can be generalized. Differences from that generalization are the outlires, rather than the norm.
Of course, I'm not saying that what I said pertains to all memebers of the male and female gender, even in western countries, but it still holds somewhat true for the majority.
#204 to #20 - anon (08/09/2013) [-]
I'm a female, and I'm only stating that because it's relevant.

I don't mind playing competitive games because I play to have fun - I don't have to win to have fun. However, I also think it's because I grew up with three brothers. Growing up, I could either sit and cry about losing, or just play the game and have fun. I feel embarrassed when there are other girls playing a game and they whine about losing or the game being too hard. I think it really comes down to how someone was raised; if someone was raised a spoiled princess, they will always be a spoiled princess.

Ahhh the obligatory making fun of women front page post. Maybe the next post will be about how all girls friendzone nice guys (the FJ community) and date assholes!

Who says I'm making fun of women?
User avatar #373 to #368 - psychosamm (08/09/2013) [-]
The title is literally "Feminism and Video Games" and the content is made to laugh at how women supposedly treat video games over the years. The point is to laugh at them and their stupidity, hence MAKE FUN of them. Was this actually a serious question? lol
User avatar #375 to #373 - ThePhysGun (08/09/2013) [-]
Saying I'm making fun of them implies any of what I said is wrong.
#378 to #375 - psychosamm (08/09/2013) [-]
That's because it is wrong. This post is just joining the bandwagon on this site of  "Hurr durr women are stupid because they don't go out with me, and here's why! Look how dumb! Hurr durr"   
   
Whether or not its because you want to join the bandwagon, want thumbs, or actually think this is funny i don't care. This 			****		 is getting old, along with all the friendzone BS.

Notice there are a total of two genders, now go ahead and look at which one is responsible for this.
User avatar #381 to #380 - psychosamm (08/09/2013) [-]
I have no idea what you're trying to point out, just say what you're trying to say.
User avatar #384 to #381 - ThePhysGun (08/09/2013) [-]
Women did it. I said so. You can stop talking on their behalf now.

I didn't say women were stupid. you did.

I didn't say make fun of women for such, you did.

I didn't say women don't go out with me, you did.

And I most certainly didn't say "hurr durr" because I couldn't think of a way to make my opposition sound stupid. Now quit defending feminism ******** with evidence you yourself made up and subsequently projected on to me.
#387 to #384 - anon (08/09/2013) [-]
Wait I'm confused too... are you saying that because she pointed out how the post has the "women are stupid messsage" she is the one saying that women are stupid and not the one who posted the message?
And you also said that she should stop talking on women's behalf because that's what your doing ("I said so")?
#389 to #387 - anon (08/09/2013) [-]
No, it's that they are projecting. Nobody claimed that women are stupid, but she accused him of such when she was the one to bring it up in the first place.
User avatar #385 to #384 - psychosamm (08/09/2013) [-]
I never said you personally said all those things, that's just the general bandwagon on FJ, and you joined in on it. I don't care why you hopped on the train, i'm saying i think the train should've left a long time ago and yet it's still sitting at the station. It was funny at one point, its good to poke fun at all kinds of people/ things occasionally, but now it's just redundant and old, yet it keeps getting front page because of the forever alone fags on this site.
User avatar #386 to #385 - ThePhysGun (08/09/2013) [-]
Well gee, I wonder if people are still posting this topic because this topic is still relevant? For ***** sake, you're acting like feminism was one small thing that happened years ago. It wasn't, it's still going on.

People talked about it a while ago because it did something a while ago, and people talk about it now because it did something now. It's not a damn bandwagon just because a lot of people are on the same subject.
#388 to #386 - psychosamm (08/09/2013) [-]
Sure it's still going on, that's obvious. But jesus the **** doesn't need to be posted about and made fun of every single day, come up with something original that's actually new and funny. It's just the same **** over and over, and it's getting old and not funny. It's not being thumbed up because its "relevant" they're thumbing it up because they're bitter because they can't get some hot chick, and making fun of them makes them feel better about themselves. Like i said, its funny occasionally, but now it's just pathetic.

It's like you listen to a song you mildly like on the radio, then it becomes popular and the stations start playing it constantly, you like it at first, but then it starts to get under your skin and you begin disliking the song, maybe even hating it. You try to change the station, but it ends up playing on that station too. But unlike songs that go away after a fad, this dumb **** just won't go away.

Congratulations, you just described this whole place.

I've made my point, I'm saying this because it's worth saying, and now I'm ******* off.

I find new and funny things on here every time a log on. Sorry sir, but your post just ins't funny, to me at least. It's an old bandwagon, whether you want to admit it or not. But i'm glad you're going to take that attitude elsewhere.

I'm tired of seeing these kind of posts.  It reminds me that there are girls out there that are actually like this.  It just drags me down and makes me not want to talk about video games outside of the internet out of fear of being treated like one of these "gurl gamers."    Why can't we just play our games and have fun?
