I am going to shake the next person who asks me if I'm scared as a female gamer/if it sucks/how I bear all the objectification/why I even bother.

And if anyone else tells me that I must be relieved that Anita Sarkeesian has brought all these issues to light I may be forced to commit an act of violence.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go recruit help to beat a giant werewolf...

Wandering into forums after E3 has been fun in the past. :(

Heh. I got a lot of that same sort of stuff regarding being female in the military after the push a couple years back to overhaul the sexual assault prevention program. I was like "Eh?"

I've been threatened with castration more than rape, tbh. Although I've been told that I should be offended by the fact they presumed I was a man. Usually I simply get a gender-neutral "rip off your head and (insert body fluid) down your neck". Absolutely none of them are appropriate, but anonimity is the most powerful tool there is for encouraging assholes. Take that away and they're usually cowards, so it doesn't make me feel unsafe in the slightest.

The one time someone propsitioned me was a joke after the entire group was soundly and thoroughly thrashed. Now, I'm not saying that my experiences are what everyone has, but the assumption that I am miserable every time I game or enter a forum is baffling to me.
