"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.)
