    If this thread was prompted by this post, he was just being a goof and echoing a meme. I can't speak for anywhere else you have been, and I know most of the internet is full of idiots, but we've had/have girls around here, and we don't really make a big deal out of it beyond the occasional stupid comment like what Loc did. For the most part, people around TF2M are of a higher grade than elsewhere.

    From what I can tell from the previous thread where this arose, it was a joke and that you mistranslated/misinterpreted it.

    Well unfortunately that is because of people not liking quakeman, and has nothing to do with you. Just ignore them and I'm sure everything will settle down.

    Well to me I had the suspicion of that on my own (I don't participate in their chat) because you both post in the same style (which could be due to translation from the same language, to be fair), both tend to post in the same threads, and even in a video you linked HE had commented in the comments section.

    So I would say you are both either the same person or really good friends. But originally when you first started posting you acted as if you didn't know each other. So at the very least there is something fishy about. My guess is Quakeman had you come on so he had someone else to chat with on here.

    But yeah, the whole thing is pretty hilarious to me anyway.

    it's the ellipses that make her sound like quakeman but it doesn't necessarily mean they're the same person.

    Ow come on, I know you're not really a girl ! :p

    Meh, it was just a (poor) joke, don't take it to heart. The fact is that there is (apparently at least) many more men than women on the internet. Not all women make it clear what their gender is either, in some cases with good reasons.

    Why do you have to be "a girl on the internet"? Just post some shit and talk about it, don't bring your gender up.

    For example, if I logged in and my name was "SchwaMAN" and was like "Hey, I have a big ol' dick. I like the ladies. What do you think of my map?" I wouldn't be surprised if people gave me shit. Frankly, most people don't give a shit about your gender. Yet you bring it up.

    Here's from your intro post
    Who does this? Really? If a guy did this we would all give him shit. If a girl did this we would give her shit. You did it, so we are going to give you shit.

    The internet is one of the few places you can actually be treated completely impartially. We all start with a clean slate of anonymity and are treated based upon our actions and words. It completely baffles me why some girls feel it necessary to instantly announce their gender. Truthfully, I think they expect that somehow this will get them special treatment. When they don't get special treatment they are offended.

    It is too late here, but I suggest in the future you simply omit your gender until people have learned a bit about your personality. This isn't a meat market and people get annoyed when either gender treats it like one.

    If you're talking about how last night I said you two where similar, well, yes, I was. And that's because of what I quoted above. It's kinda hard to miss. It just voiced how odd it was you both misspell "with" to "whit". Nothing more.

    As for girl games, you're reading from one right now. It's a part of what we have to put up with, but it's really not all that bad. The people here are really nice about it, i've found in the past year or more I've been here.

    What the above post said is true too. After a while you learn to not care what people think about your gender. Whether they think you're not a girl because "girls don't exist on the internet" or they give you crap for it, you just ignore it. people usually get over it anyway.

    Both my sisters play TF2. In reality, gender does not matter in an online game. We all might as well be genderless since everyone games on a proxy identity anyways.

    Orrrr somehow you can jump to that irrational thought even though above has been explained well to defuse the situation.

    Irrational thought...

    THEY DO EXIST!

    You understand the difference between these two introductions right?

    1) Hi I'm Schwa. I like Lego and am studying biology. I spent last summer doing research on Japanese Beetles. I map because it is a creative outlet and I enjoy that idea that other people will also enjoy my work.

    2) Hi I'm Schwa. I'm a dude. I am 5'9 with curly blond hair. I like to have fun. Tee hee!

    You decide what information to provide to us. You decide what personality traits you want to portray to us. It is the only way we have to judge you. Try putting your best foot forward.

    The internet is a true meritocracy: we only care about what you can do, not what you are. You are a girl, and no one gives a fuck about that. However, if you think being a girl is something special you will get mocked for it.
