You can't ever let on that you're a female if you want to play Halo or Gears of War live.

Have you ever tried playing multiplayer with games that aren't dominated by 12 year-olds? Of course you're going to find rampant sexism, your mom jokes, and other such things in those communities.

My sister-in-law loves Halo, although why anyone would want to chat with anyone who plays these games is beyond me. She leaves the mic off, and the other players muted. Halo isn't counterstrike, there really isn't any planning going on.

Counterstrike? Voice chat there isn't as cancerous as Xbox live, but you still get colourful people like the guy who plays pokemon battle music for entire rounds.

I was one of those people. I also had various Duke Nukem quotes.

When I used to play counterstrike, it was very important that you co-ordinated with your team, or you were almost guaranteed to lose. With Halo, it's mostly just a bunch of people running around shooting eachother.

Well, it really depends on the game mode. I spent most of my time playing gungame.

"The recent 4chan celebrity nude leaks in past 2 months have been an invasion of privacy and is also clear indication that the internet need to be censored."

Censor the internet? What a bunch of fools.

And now the government is involved.

I think Zoe Quinn paid for that hearing though. Anybody can speak to congress if they have the money.

I think there were something like six Literally Whos at one point.

If you play Gears of War, Halo, Call of Duty, or any other online  game with a volatile community, the 12 year olds there will find anything they perceive in you to be a weakness and try to exploit it. It has nothing to do with gender.
