Girls seem to be too emotional for things like these. They get too offended easily, and they might focus on how they like to play and not what is strategically viable. There are exceptions, but most females are too sensitive to handle too much competition.

That's just a sub. Will not be playing unless one of TPA's players get a seizure or something.

It's not that women aren't allowed to play. It's just that women don't play.
Pretty sure plenty of women play those sports competitively, lol.

I think it's because built males are a little bit stronger than built females.

Esports is non-athletic, so I guess the point of this thread is asking why are there no professional female e-sports players, despite plenty of girls online denying the stereotype that chicks are bad at video games?

Is it physical reasons, like athletic sports? Or is it because of the social stigma that people who take video games seriously are creepy/losers.

Girls lack consistency but they would make good junglers and supports due to their multitasking abilities. As players they would crack under pressure and do poorly during periods.

If any girls out there were good enough to compete with tsm, azubu, m5 or even sk then they would be here. It's not like the teams have a "no girls allowed" policy.

Social stigma and norms from early ages which restrict the development of familiarity in the field. Girls play with ponies. Boys play with cars. Girls play tea parties. Boys play with video games. Thankfully this **** is slowly changing. Just wait another 10 years, you'll see quite a bit of girls in e-sports and whatnot, albeit probably still not as much. It all takes time.

Why are the top 60 League of Legends players in the world all male?

So no, men are not just naturally better at video games. Get that out of your head right now.
Why the fuck is that a contest?
