Why is it always the woman who is not only a non-gamer but despises the stereotypical male gamer? I know lots of women who are gamers, most game more than I do, yet every cartoon, every video, every commentary portrays women as laundry-washing, vacuum cleaning, dish washing anti-gamers who constantly scowl at men who are too obsessed to look away from their screens.
Why can’t women have some fun in these comics?
My exact thoughts when i saw this!
I’m with you, as a chick gamer who hates to clean this is always the case! D:
Agreed, instead of making me laugh, it just annoyed me that I’m apparently supposed to be doing chores and being a bitch rather than playing games.
Also, as far as I know, men aren’t usually like that, either. I’m dating a man-gamer and we pretty much take care of the outside duties of cleaning and all that stuff TOGETHER. Not all man-gamers are obsessed, lazy bums.
im so glad my soon-to-be-husband is as big of a gamer as i am! wouldn’t have it any other way! <3
I don’t get why the dudes ignore awesome food or their girl in lingerie. I don’t care if it’s multiplayer and I can’t pause. I’ll d/c for good food or my lady. And if I can pause the game…you bet I’m pausing it
While I find this kind of mean and sad that people think that this is the story of all gamers. I have to admit that as a woman in geek culture who games but doesn’t consider ones self a gamer I have had a boyfriend who regularly ignored me lying naked on his bed to play games.
should have baked some cookies….
on a serious note, its on all a case-by-case scenario. some people are just too immersed into the gaming, especially now with it being “acceptable” to be a gamer(when i was in school, it was kind of bad/unattractive, like being a “nerd loser”, now its changed…)
Are you… um… single? You know, I mean “available?” Just asking…
