Chances are though, you aren't.

I don't recall ever telling anyone that I'm male, so why should girls care if we know that they are female? At what point while playing the game is it necessary to reveal that?

This isn't about alienation of women - it's about women deliberately separating themselves from the faceless crowd of players, and then being surprised when they get flamed. It's the internet; give anyone a reason to mouth off, whether it's revealing your gender or saying your favorite color, and they will.

That is not a good solution. It shouldn't matter whether a player is male or female, and it shouldn't matter whether they say they're male or female. The people who are too immature to share a game with an acknowledged female player should not be given a pass on their unacceptable behavior.

You're bending the argument away from what the whole point is. The point is that Riot is making it seem like that's okay because of how they approach the female champs and how they react to reports of that nature.

You're also victim blaming which renders any argument to the contrary of the obnoxious amounts of misogyny in the game irrelevant.

Read what I was responding to, I wasn't even responding to the OT. Just the women who said she was in game having guys making sexist remarks against her, and I just gave her two options to avoid needing to read what every jackass in game says.

Actually, our female champs have huge breasts.
They're probably fake.
So it promotes either fertility or fakeness.
Real women typically aren't fake, and they know this. As do most men.

but like, if you have larger breasts, even if you're not wearing a 'revealing' top so to speak, you're probably going to be showing off cleavage. it happens. it doesn't have to be a sexual thing at all

I'm sorry but I'm not going to run around dressed like a nun because some dudes think by me wearing clothes that I like I'm catering to the masses or trying to get something out of my figure

butts

Pretty sure caps lock denote emphasis which is more protest than was required. Maybe a part of you likes fuzzy things that purr a little more than you are comfortable with and its confusing you?
