I was taught a gender equality lesson..
I responded to someone begging for gold in trade chat by saying "dude..."

Then this happened.

I scoff when you guys (oh god, I'm doing it!) tell me to apologize for my gender but this makes me rethink it...

Bitches be crazy.

pretty much the average social justice feminazi from tumblr. I like how she recites that "51% of gamers are female" while playing an MMO, which is heavily dominated by males.

I also find it hilarious she freaks out over a simple word, and goes on to call you a "nut".

+1 to Baki's post

Also I'm pretty sure that 51% that I read somewhere on /r/tumblrinaction also included Farmville and phone games.

There's no way people can be this sensitive. e_e

Fuck that crazy cunt.

I say the less female gamers the better!

Just gotta find the non-psychotic, non-ewhores!

+1 for going on a ridiculous diatribe about gender shit for no real reason and ending with "Women would prefer no big deal was made about gender".

"Dude" is pretty much a gender-neutral word nowadays. It really has nothing to do with feminism. Men and women use it to refer to both men and women.

I feel like women like her only serve to take away from the actual legitimacy of feminist issues like rape culture and general pervasive sexism. She's part of the reason SJW Tumblr gets such a bad rap.

(The percentage of MMO players who are female is also closer to 40% not 51%, and that figure was taken from a BBC study on players of Everquest II.)

I lol'd.
nice title Jack. Beach Patrol is still the best though.

(what Sylv said +1)

I also agree with Sylv. All of the effort and suffering women have made over the years to obtain equality by idiots that freak out over using a fairly gender neutral word in the case where you don't know (or care) about their gender. I'm sure the women that struggled for the right to vote, or are trying to reach equal pay for equal work really appreciate some over sensitive moron is defending their "rights" in a fucking general channel conversation in an online game, especially when the gender isn't even part of the conversation. It just makes people turn off from the whole debate when it IS something important. Lily Ledbetter should punch this person right square in the mouth.
