its like being a male gamer... but with a vagina

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...

CSGO is cancer, much like buzzshit
That random fangirl
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.

I feel so bad for girl gamers, they either show their voice and are treated like fucking gods online and given no personal respect or just make sure to hide who they really are.

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

Jesus, this comment section is sexist. "Guys are better gamers than girls, look at the leaderboards." Uh, no. That just means that those particular pro gamer teams are better than other ones. Guys aren't magically more dexterous and able to visually track better than girls. It's called being "allowed" to play something, because it's accepted for your gender.

Jesus Christ, if buzzfeed changed "female gamer" to "gamer" y'all would be complaining about this video having a hidden agenda and about why it's only on females. My god. just fucking get over it
'ChildOfTheSun32' 1 week 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.

'Wintography' 1 week 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!

Julia Richardson

I play counter strike and it does get exhausting playing when you're losing or even just playing in general. you need to have/learn strategies and work together so although they aren't physically getting up and going to a "normal" job it is still difficult. you shouldn't discriminate just because they're doing a job considered "taboo".

There are no female specific tournaments, they end up getting tac'd to a big ESL event (Major CSGO event) or another big event. Most of the time after the top male teams are done, the viewer count for the female part is sub 30K. Men and women can compete together, they choose not to because they want their exclusivity. Also most of the female pros aren't nearly as good as the males.
The Pirc
'The Pirc' 1 week ago
To all you that are asking why we call girls playing games "girl gamers" and not "gamers", because theyre a joke. They cant compete with male counterparts as in any other sport. Thats why they make all female teams so they can compete among themselves. Same in football, basketball, etc. They play like girls, which makes them boring to watch. When there will be an all female team capable of beating a male pro team, great, but untill then let them have their little female leagues lmao

The people who are laughing at gamers, calling it fun. There's a thumb rule that you need to practice something for more than 10,000 hrs to become good at it. Try playing a game again & again for 10,000 hrs and see how mundane it becomes. But you've to simultaneously keep learning & improvising. Most of the pros have played double those hours & been playing since 10 yrs daily.

why should it matter? guys do the exact same thing. and when people say they try to encourage other girls nothing helps. not every girl likes to game. some are into more "girly" things. and its only gamer no "guy gamer" or "girl gamer."

So much bitching going on in the comment section. Does it really "trigger" you that much when they put "Female Professional Gamer". Its 2017 and people are still acting like spineless wimps.

I don't think you people understand that guys are physically better at video games then girls are. Most of you probably won't understand because this is buzzfeed but the 2 genders that exist aren't 100% equal physically
