Sexism and abuse isn't only on Twitter: one woman's gaming experience | Technology | theguardian.com
In my whole life of playing games, whenever there's someone people think are a female, or say that they're a female, they'll get praised more than jesus himself. Lots of compliments, people hitting on them, free items and/or services, people will rush to their beck and call.
So tell me, do any of you have any stories or experiences at all about a female actually getting harassed like this, instead of worshiped? At this point, I'm unsure whether the media is just churning out standard bullshit, it's just a vocal minority, they're not telling the other side of the story, or they are specifically cherry picking the one out of hundreds or thousands that get treated like this.
