No offense to all the girls that follow this blog though. I am a girl.. and coming across another girl in the game with an entitlement complex is very annoying and insulting.
Unpopular opinion probably, but I really don’t give 2 fucks about this kinda stuff. I wanna kill shit and get loot, if someone expects ‘special treatment’ for their gender or any other reason, whatever, not my problem or anything to concern myself with it.
I’ve honestly never met a girl on wow who expected special treatment because they were a girl.
Me neither. And if any are out there, guess what, that sort of thing is the product of our misogynistic culture that makes it seem like being a woman and playing video games are things that just don’t happen, so uh.
I wish that there wasn’t this need to pit women against each other in pretty much everything ever.
I’ve literally never seen another girl get special treatment on WoW, let alone myself. In fact, I’ve been harassed in dungeons and raids and had so many rape jokes/kitchen jokes/etc etc thrown at me. (Keep in mind I’m 15)
I’ve been harassed on rp servers, and I’ve been asked questions about my sexual activity by creepy adult men.
the only sort of special treatment that I have seen happen or had happen to me is that guy players out of their own volition decide to “dote” on girl players either because they assume “oh they’re a girl so they must not know what they’re doing” or even better, for ulterior motives that come to light after said girl “friendzones” them lmao
i played WoW for years and years and years and the only “entitlement complex” i ever came across in all my experience raiding was asshole guy players who would whine to the RL endlessly if he didn’t win the roll till someone gave him shit to shut him the fuck up.
Never saw a female or nb player get any special treatment (besides constant harassment) unless it was some sad-faced weasel trying to push gold and armor onto a girl in some misguided attempt at flirting, making literally everyone else uncomfortable.
lbr here that whole “girls get treated better in MMOs” is a fucking myth perpetuated by the same misogynistic assholes who kick girls out of guilds/raid teams as soon as they talk on vent.
this video sums up what I think about this
Literally the only times I’ve EVER seen ~a girl~ ask for special treatment is when MALE PLAYERS roll busty female characters and pretend to be ~hapless women teehee~ so they can get free shit from other male players… think about that.
The idea that female players ask for special treatment in games, particularly MMOs, is so prevalent but there’s almost no basis for it. It’s something threatened male players conjure up to explain why A GIRL is as good OR BETTER than them at [GAME].
It’s easier to think “she only has those achievements/ gear/ mounts because she sent nudes or sucked e-dick or her bf played her char for her” than to imagine she got all those things on her own merit.
"If she did ALL those things herself then that means I, Man Dudebro, am not as good at [GAME] as I thought!? IMPOSSIBLE!!!"
I know so many female players who are better at the game than most of the dudes I know… yet the girls are the ones held up to FAR higher standards for the exact same roles/content and are CONSTANTLY under fire to PROVE THEMSELVES, as if doing do will earn them enough respect to stop getting harassed (it doesn’t).
Male players fuck up ohh that sucks bro but if a girl makes the exact same mistake OHH U SHOULDA STAYED IN TEH KITCHEN LOL WHOSE DICK DID U SUCK LOLL
This all ties in with the myth, “women don’t play WoW/games!” They do, they always have, but damn it’s a different world for them.
