    On the Topic of Female Gamers/Personalities

    Since I have joined IC, one of my biggest pet peeves is how female gamers are viewed in and around this game. Frankly it is just annoying how immature a lot of you guys are. Any remotely attractive female goes on Twitch, and you just lose it. I would love it if more bans would come down to take care off this both in-game, and on the Twitch channel. I am tired of seeing the negativity that gets directed towards them, and how little is done to bring to a sure end.

    This video created by iLL WiLL PrEss hits the nail on the head (Warning: NSFW): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q65f...8vMxg_dC1AI_fA

    And just as a reminder, those "bad" things you say count as sexual harassment. Say it in real life, or where someone can track you, and you can head up with a nice set of shiny bracelets, and a lawsuit. Why don't you start changing your ways today? It will save you a lot of trouble down the road.

    P.S. I have seen too much harassment at this point, and it bothers me more than anything else in the community at the moment. Most of us are of age here so act like it. It is not the worst in the gaming world, but it is still annoying.

    Re: On the Topic of Female Gamers/Personalities

    A game with predominantly young teens having an immature audience?

    Say it isn't so!

    You have the demographic of the community wrong. Nearly everyone I have met in this game is college age or older. That means you are of age, and should act so. In fact, I have found a lot are late 20s or early 30s, and many even older. Please stop making comments like that, I have seen it elsewhere too. You will find yourself not sticking your foot in your mouth as often when you pay attention to the facts.

    Can you prove any of this or is it purely anecdotal?

    I'm going with the latter.

    It's as if they've never talked to a girl before.

    As of last night when I logged off, I had 434 people on my friends' list. I believe that to be the largest out there on any IC server right now. With that said most of the people on there (I communicate with them all at some time) are in, or have just finished college. I can gather this just from what you say to me. You have the next smaller population being those ho are just getting married, getting set in their long term careers, and/or starting to have kids. You have the next very small population of those who have established families, kids coming of age, and so on. Then you have the even smaller population that is under 18. You can tell that right away when talking to someone in-game, or them asking me for advice (and then I have to ask for their age to continue). Finally we have the even smaller population of people over 50 (I have found 5 or 6 of them so far).

    Now we can use that "small" population and use it to create the population map of the IC player base. In fact due to the laws of statistics you can take an even smaller sample size and do it. In the end, the demographic this game is attracting is different than what many of you have been suggesting.

    And on another note, I have run into many females in this game. Many don't come out, and say it for many good reasons, but it shouldn't have to be that way.

    Can you prove that most of the players are teenagers? What is your assumption based on?

    It's of little importance though. Even if they are teenagers, they're not toddlers: they should be able to understand what harassment is and get some sort of corrective measure applied for it.

    What makes it alright for a teenager to make a girl/woman feel uncomfortable while playing a game she likes?

    Dycer hit the nail in the head here (and this applies not only to the treatment of female players, although this tends to bring out the most disgusting part of what is seen as the typical male gamer behavior): Why is it that online we accept as normal behavior that gets people in real trouble if displayed in "the real life"?

    Re: On the Topic of Female Gamers/Personalities

    I have been around online since the early days of Everquest. Then if you said anything negative about anyone, you would be shunned. I have ran many guilds in online games since then and we've never had an issue with people regarding the female player base. Here, even though it is better than elsewhere from what I gather, it is still horrible. So after 14-15 years online, I come here and see what is accepted.

    How do you think the rest of us feel? The decent people, the professionals who enjoy gaming, or even the females being targeted?

    I would love it if Turbine came forth and was the first to do something drastic about this. Female players on a few servers in their other games outnumber the males it seems. So they do have a major stake in this discussion whether you want to believe it or not.

    Valafar of all the trolling you have done on the forums, you are willing to make sexual harassment towards females acceptable too? How would you feel if you were targeted by this harassment as a female.

    I may be a male, but I am not a dumb one. I have a wife, and 3 daughters. My wife won't play this game (she does play some with me) because the attitude towards females in games like this.
