I'm not pretending I'm a boy. I'm simply not telling them I'm NOT a boy. Why do I need/want that attention when I only want to play the game. ;\

Then what are you trying to imply? That you should be able to tell everyone and expected to be treated better?

There's no double standards. If you played as standard and wanted to frag just as much as anyone else, you can be a valued (valued used loosely here) part of the community.

Why do you even NEED or WANT to tell anyone you're a girl?

Because as the saying goes, "There are no girl gamers"
What? Even in TF2 I haven't had this kind of harassment, and we had plenty of 13 year olds in our server. (WHY DID THEY RUIN IT WITH HATS? :C) It isn't the worst game specifically for it, but I must admit it does have a very bad community. Not just for sexism, a lot of people are just racist and nasty towards other players in general for no reason. Even when you're winning.

I love feminists. Serious question here: How many feminists does it take to screw in a lightbulb? 2. 1 for the lightbulb and 1 to suck my ****.

Welcome to the internet, and trust me .. LoL isn't the only game.

As I've said before I play almost all of my games with my friends. They are female as well. We use the in-game chat system and call each other by name.
I'm trying to imply that I shouldn't have to be treated differently because of your gender in game. If you're going to ***** at me for being a terrible player, do it. Just don't do it because of my gender.

The analogy is being used to explain why victim blaming is incredibly stupid. I'm sorry you don't understand that.
