tbh this wasn't as cringey as a I expected it to be. they actually just showed some fellas who genuinely enjoy gaming and that's how it should be. although, the 'female gamer' title was a lil bit unnecessary.

BuzzFeed, now you're just being sexist. There is no such thing as female- and male gamers. In our world, we are just called GAMERS. Gender has nothing to do. Geez just post unsolved mysteries

Everyone is mad commenting that it's same if you're a female or a male gamer, but I can assure you as a girl who's played videogames all her life I haven't been treated "the same". Is not even a feminism thing, this is just another reminder for people who still don't get it (cause trust me there are tons) that videogames are for everyone and that there are female players and even pro ones.

Lucas Sch.
'Lucas Sch.' 11 months ago
Ok? This team is absolutely TRASH and buzz feed is just describing what a professional team does for example G2 just won the pro league finals for CS in Dallas not that long ago. They had to go through a lot more than this team did because they actually won. They knew their opponents and were able to practice harder and much longer than any other team so they won. Just because they're female and they practice for many hours and don't get anywhere doesn't mean it's hard to be a female gamer it just means lots of teams are better than you. The only reason buzz feed talked about this team is because they're female and don't see their family much because of gaming

I don't really know why esports teams don't include both genders on any team , cuz there are even girl gamers that can beat really good guy gamers , this is really annoying cuz gaming is not a physical sport so guys are not going to be more powerful here.

I can't stand people who are like "They're just gamers. There's no girl gamers or guy gamers. It's just gamers." Cause it fucking isn't. Do you know how flipping hard it is to get any recognition as a "Gamer" when you're a girl?? No one takes you seriously until you whoop their asses in every game they got. And even then it's sometimes, "Oh well I was just going easy on you". AND sometimes even other "Girl Gamers" don't take you seriously!! And I'm speaking from experience as a "Girl Gamer".

I haven't even started the fucking video and I can give you an answer: EXACTLY THE FUCKING SAME. For people who supposedly hate sexism, Buzzfeed sure loves dividing people up into these ridiculous categories. There's just gamers. That's it.

Can i join? I have 17 years of experience? I do really wish that more girls were brought up with gaming and "boy-like" hobbies. Girls are a minority in this field, and it is actually pretty lonely for those minorities to be gaming only with guys. Also even when I do bump into girls on games, it seems to turn into some sort of bitching session on who's better and this and that, instead of wanting to make friends...

Thanks for trying to bring attention to the female gaming community. We are smaller, underestimated and misrepresented compared to the male dominated community. Its annoying when some male gamers either avoid you, hate you for territorial reasons or assume you only play the sims and are not able to play anything else.

The reason male gamers get more attention in terms of cs at least is because almost any female pro other than Juliano would get stomped by almost any male pro

'ChildOfTheSun32' 1 year ago
I pretty much dislike the games that professional gamers tend to play. Maybe it's just because I'm not very good at those games, but also, more than that, I can actively describe (objectively, I feel) what makes those games lame and therefore justify why I don't like them.

All these people complaining about there being no difference between girl and guy gamers. There's a difference between the number of guy gamers from girl gamers so stop acting like this is a sexist thing.

Jasmin Winter
'Jasmin Winter' 1 year ago
I don't get why so many people are down with this "gender-blindness" either... It's no stretch to hypothesize that women might experience professional gaming differently, considering the fact that the field has historically been male-oriented. This video does nothing except explore that. The simplistic push for equality amongst men and women (in terms of sameness) instead of equity for all genders (in terms of embracing and understanding differences) is more troubling than anything. The best displays of feminism embody the latter, and encourages innovation through diversity and complexity, not reductionism!
