Why does it irritate me so much when this gets said in /2, besides the obvious, that I am a girl and I play WoW?
I think what gets to me the most is the fear of sticking up for myself and saying that I am a girl. I shouldn’t have to feel afraid of that. I should be able to say it and people should be able to accept it.
Instead, I typically don’t say a thing and sit and steam about it.
Why, you might ask?
Because if I come out and say I’m a girl then I will be barraged with either “No you’re not. Pics or its not true. Get on vent and prove it.” Or, I’ll get barraged with, “You’re only making it a point to say you’re a girl to get attention. You probably play worth a shit and get handed all your epics. Drama queen!” Or, even worse, “A/S/L? Wanna cyber?”
Now, one could argue that the initial person who made the statement “Girls don’t play WoW,” was only saying it to stir shit up. Perhaps that is true, and in that case, I guess I shouldn’t be offended. Strangely enough, I still do feel offended.
Girls of WoW, what do you do when this happens? Do you act like me and just keep it inside? Does it even bother you?
