sooo, you trying to pull same thing here... taking a very specific pool for your "survey" and declare outcome that is obvious... mkay.
e.g. same as going to starbucks and asking what computer they use to later declare that 97% of population uses macs..

Reeks of sarkeesian so I shall ignore your last sentence.

This is easy.... Dude the average woman don't play video games lol.

Im 30... Wish in my life I met one who enjoyed games as much as I do, but I have never found one. I use Twitch as a reference because its the easiest way to to ask. What you think Im just gonna walk up to women and ask if they play Max Payne 3 ? Lol

Not to mention other aspects that really boil down to "owning" vs "using".

I mean I own 2 tablets and a laptop, but I *HARDLY* use them (maybe 4 hours a month).

Ok, so therefore you declare they do not play games at all because you have not met anyone. OK seems legit.
I have not met a single Korean person therefore Korea does not exist!

btw wrong game to ask.
The ones I meet usually are hardcore addicts of Sims. Some play RPG and/or MMO's. Extremely small number of CS, few are even in sim-racing.

I'm more of a broad thinker than you know. I'm very opened minded.

But I would rather a woman correct me than a man. In thise case.

You're not worng in your defence you are perfectly on point with what you said.

This does not seem that surprising to me to be honest. I do not know if my experience is an outlier, but I have met many girls that liked to play video games. Games like Sims, Civilization, Diablo, Rock Band, Pokemon, Mario, Sonic, League of Legends, WoW, and even Counter-Strike. And there are of course casual games on phones as well.

I do not really follow anything about the Gamergate controversy since it is not interesting to me. I just know that women do play video games. Nothing about video games is masculine exclusive to me.

No I don't mean it like that. I was being very general with the application to various types of groups in America. Yeah UK isn't much different, but it is different enough to notice how not segregated America is by class, race, sex, gender and etc. Over in UK it's mostly class warfare.

The worst thing of it all is that this segregation in America is done by it's own population. Not by government! By it's own population! So terrible! You can fix a government for the most part, you can't fix the people because there will always be some sort of civil unrest.

Hmmm, I do know of some other gals who game, but not many compared to guys I know that game.

I know I am extreme outlier for being a woman. Considering I got two computers, two laptops, two PS3, two PS2, Gamecube, Wii, Wii U, DS lite, and a 3DS. I have played a Dreamcast, Xbox, and one point had a Xbox 360. I love my video games, darn it. tongue.gif

Anyway, off to try finish Demon Souls.

Odd thing is, I also wind up being the troubleshooter for my Dad and Uncle's computer, or have guys straight up ask me for advice on computers when they find out that I know how to build computers. Heck, just finish my tech school and had one teacher that I had help out to explain some of the newer hardware specs that are out there. (The tech books only get updated every three years)
