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.

Were you beat up by some 12 year olds recently?

You must have a strange definition of "nothing."

There's a general tendency for gamers to e-bully. But it has created a special snowflake movement for people with no backbone. I remember once I was playing Gears of War and I had apparently trounced someone so hard he sent me a voice message saying he was going to "fuck my grandmother". If you put yourself in a public space, but can't handle criticism, you shouldn't be there. If you play games online, you are going to be personally insulted. Personally, I think it's hilarious a lot of the time.

If you were a journalist, that line would have been plucked out of context, arranged in a dumb image with other out-of-context quotes from journalists about gaming or gamers, and circulated around reddit or Breitbart or whatever other websites haven't washed their hands of the GiggleGoobers as evidence of the great SJW conspiracy against good old red-blooded gamers.  I know that has nothing to do with anything, but the similarities amused me.

At least you're self-aware. That will come in handy.

Does anyone else remember how wrong Saddam was about this? Oh well, he's gone now so there's no use in beating that dead horse.

Actually, he was right. And several years later, video game journalism is largely the same, AAA game development is only marginally more inclusive (and considerably more douchey in terms of business practices), and people are still mad about both issues. Well done, everybody.

Just like a privileged gamer, doxing someone who disagrees with you.
You don't get races of anything ... accept people.

I'm only silver league because fucking SJWs keep making games for MINORITIES and WOMEN and I, the victimized gamer, am being discriminated against.

Maybe you can talk to Parsifal about setting up a special sub-forum with strict rules against e-bullying so our members can discuss carefully vetted topics without worry of confrontation.
