I have a degree on System Engineer and most of my partenrs which have also degree on Computational Sciences, MIC Programming, Control System Design, Telecommunications can't be cataloged as "Gamers" most of them just have NEVER played Call of duty, Battlefield, Assasins Creed on their entire life, and some of them never have heard about titles as Bioshock, World of Warcraft, L4D. They are not old guys, they are 25 - 30 years old like me, but they never really liked video games, considering it pointless and time wasters, and if they play something is facebook games.
Among my partners field, there a LOT of women, and they have equal, worst or better skills than men. I can't really stablish a difference, however something i can see is that girls and women in general tend to have better oportunitys and ease for professional growth, because there are always bunch of guys dispossed to help her or teach her, but not dispossed to help another man. Then if a woman really put some effort to learn and progress become a very smart and professional engineer very easy. To men tend to be more difficult. Of course always exist dumb girls that don't take advance of this situation and stay living from her daddy then from her husband.
Anyway, the "GAMER" concept is totally different, many gamers doesn't even know how to assemble their own computer, let alone mathematics, physix, chemical, etc. I have many game partners in my own country Lawyers, Journalists, cookers and stupids kiddos. They don't know nothing about sciences but they are HARD CORE gamers. Play facebook games is to be a GAMER? Yes, but is like the first step not a serious GAMER: Sims, Guitar heroe, Super Mario, it is gaming. On this matter, i never knew a serious Girl Gamer in flesh just casual gamers on dress the barbie, facebook games, you can't consider it gaming. Online i knew a few hardcore gamers most from First Worldists Countrys, but absolutly non here in South-America.
As anecdote, Years ago i knew a girl which worked as tecnical support on a computer store, and she was actually assembling the PC (she was really good looking) while her partner, a man, was the payment reciever and customer attention. I said OMG how can this be posible but yes.
And respect if a girl gamer is hot good looking or not, is not the matter here, ANY woman is beautiful to my eyes. A girl is that one who was born with a VAGINA and a man is that one who was born with a PENIS, can you freaking transexuals understand that ?? I don't care what you decided to be, or what your doctor accepted to make into your body with scalpel and needles, you always will be a MAN or a WOMAN
Now we have 673 men and 38 "not sure" because rainbow guys and trans decided to vote wrong.
now we will never know exactly how many actuall girls there are on this forum.
