    Well done video, really. Reminds me a bit of the NHL`s "If you can play, you can play" campaign.

    TruTenrMan - Precisely. I get more annoyed with girls who have "I`m a gamer girl!" on their profiles, as if it means something other than posing. I wouldn`t say there are gamer girls, just like there aren`t gamer guys, there are just gamers. Said gamers may be male or female, but that means almost nothing.

    "Online, we`re all on the same team." This sentence seems to throw back the female gaming movement methinks.

    The sentiment behind it is a good one, but the video isn`t going to do a damn thing. The only people who will sit through and watch this are people who already agree. They`ll hear the dramatic music, nod at the right parts, and maybe even get a little choked up toward the end. They eat this stuff up on a daily basis.

    The people whose minds they`re looking to change, if they even watch for more than five seconds, will head directly to the comments section to flame. They are utter trash, immature and made fearless by their anonymity. They will spew horrible, foul things to anyone and everyone. And they don`t care about your impassioned pleas for a more humane environment.

    They are gamers.

    If you don`t want to be labeled, why are you labeling yourselves as girl gamers? And if you really want to be girl gamers, then just trash talk like everyone else, that includes sexist, racist, and utterly ridiculous comments. My favorite is to chastise other players for being/playing like an orphan, for some reason a lot of players react to that one. Really gets in their head if you keep making fun of them for it for like 15 mins.

    They could always just play with gender neutral/male usernames and male avatars if they have such a huge issue with getting all that attention.. It`d be easier than making a video just to complain about it.

    PizzaPits - I fully agree. Get a gender neutral nickname, and nobody`s the wiser unless you have a voice mic. Mind you, I use this nick on several websites (which don`t include your gender info) and they all think I`m female. I look like your stereotypical rugby prop.

    These are some conceded people. If you don`t care what others think, then keep it to yourself and just keep playing. Kinda hypocritical to complain about people talking trash and to do the same back.

    YANK, what trash talk? Are you referring when they said they could talk trash? Talking trash doesn`t have to include remarks that specifically target your gender. Telling a female gamer that she sucks when they mess up in game is one thing, but it`s something else entirely when you`re only trash talking them because they are a female. I`m fairly certain that is the point to the whole video. Stop targeting female players because they are female players. Why is it so wrong of them to ask for that?

    astoundingly... I quite enjoyed that. It`s a nice ideal that gamers are somehow better people than the average human dip$hit. Logically though.. if something like this needs to be said then it`s evidence that gamers are even bigger a$$hats than the average male in the population.

    If you don`t want to be labeled, why are you labeling yourselves as girl gamers?

    Because they`re fools or hypocrites. Or both. I`d go with both.

    Blithering idiots who I care nothing about unless they bother me (either directly or through gaining political power and bothering me that way).

    I agree that gamer girls are my equals however... when I yell at them for being on their period or for being a weak little woman, it`s for the same reason I insult and slander the men... to psych them out, troll them, push their buttons, etc.

    It`s not my fault it works.

    "judge me on my ability to talk trash."

    Isn`t that what this video is trying to stop? Sure, there are levels, but for the most part someone who is trash talking you will find a nerve and if you`re a girl, it`s easiest to pick on some subtle sexualized stereotypes to get a rise out of someone.

    Not necessarily the behavior of an actual sexist, rather someone being cheap, same applies to picking on someone due to their age old/young or speech impediment.

    I`m a lady gamer and I really wanted to like this video.....nope. The crap they`re bitching about doesn`t actually happen when you`re a real gamer. If you act like one of the boys you get treated like one of the boys. Simple as that. Yes people say dumb crap as a joke but they fully expect that you`ll dish it right back.

    I`m a video gamer, but I don`t respect video gaming as a talent since very, very little of it applies to life in the real world. "Judge me on my ability to pwn a noob" really translates to "judge me on my ability to sit on my ass and press keys really quick". Good for you; you can type. So can secretaries. Oops... did that sound sexist?
