Pocket. You seem to be missing the point. I have no need to see the source material for the comments and I never said I needed them to make any determinations on their motivations. To look at these comments and think that they are put out there with the intent to score points with a woman is a huge jump to conclusions. They are born of resentment because you were graced with an advantage not shared by all.
You seem keenly aware of your own desireability by the fact that you chose to frame the article in this light. But now you argue that your being an attractive female has nothing to do with your position {which sad to say as others have pointed out is clearly the case however also not necessarily your fault}.
The truth is you are what many consider attractive and that alone is enough to make some people hate you. When you make articles like this, it only reinforces their reason for doing so and just makes you come off vain. Despite your protestations to the contrary, it just comes off like an article elaborating on your first world problem of being too desireable to the mases of the undesired. I can apreciate the humourous tone you tried to set but for some people this is just more kindling to light your reputation as a genuine gamer on fire with.

Folks, its called "satirical writing".  Google it.  Then you can come back and troll Pokket some more, but at least you might impress her with your newfound knowledge.

 

(Protip: she's actually been trolling all of you. :-D  )

Yet you write articles like this lambasting those males who help put you where you are.

 Bite, hand and feeds spring to mind...  

I write an article "lambasting" males that behave like this because it is incorrect to relate my "success" on the "lack of" in between my legs. Unlike yourself, others take this one step further and actually hate on women like me for being female.

 

So I am left to conclude that because I am female, that is the only reason I am successful. So basically I should feel ashamed because of my gender... something that I cannot control. Something I was born as. Should I feel ashamed and wish I were male? That way at least my "success" would be "real".

 

You are sadly mistaken. I am successful for many other reasons beyond being a female. If you can't look past my gender, then you'll never see this, but despite people like you it really hasn't stopped me in my tracks or slowed me down. I stream, write columns, record, edit, and upload gameplay videos, guides, and vlogs, go to game conventions and interview developers, can have a real discussion about games (sometimes to the point of argument lol), and I even worked in the industry as QA for over a year.

 

I don't show off my "goods" and I don't make reference to my gender ever being a bonus. Women like me have the problem of everyone pre-judging them based on their gender. Automatically discrediting them and linking their "success" to the fact that they have boobs (even if they aren't ones to EVER take advantage of their assets - and yes there are plenty of girls out there like that).  

 

Guys just have a different problem: there are more to compete with so it is harder to get noticed.

 

I'm sorry, but men like you just sound bitter.

 

I'm sorry but you obviously aren't very sincere about yourself.

Basically your personality on this site bases on the fact that you write about how it is to be a female gamer. Part of it bases on the fact you are attractive and you get attention all while playing games/writing about them/etc.

Nobody is disrespecting your skills or talent when they say that, sadly, you either don't recognise how much of views you get for being an attractive female, or blatantly lie you don't take it into consideration. Because I believe in your inteligence I suspect the second option to be true.

You blatantly take advantage of your situation (avatar, column). It doesn't have to be as obvious as you state with "showing off goods".

So please, don't be a hypocrite, because it's not about you being female but about you using your advantages and not admitting you do.

Or are you really as blind as the girl that got help fro a guy when she broke a car and she thinks he did it because he's nice?

Attractive people get more attention, people are nicer to them and thats a FACT.

So nobody really says you don't have the talent. But really, stating it's not a factor you take into consideration all while flaunting your pretty face and writing about female perspective in your column...

Can I smell hypocrisy?

Plus all this article tells me is "all the creeps want to get into my pants so lets have a laugh at them".

This wasn't meant to be a dating article. I used satire to get across the rediculousness of the way a lot of people behave on the internet and the fact that they think this behave is okay simply because of anonymity. It's not okay to hate on someone for their race or gender in real life, so why do we tolerate it on the internet? 

 

I find that writing a nice article filled with fairies, sparkles, and sunshine sauce would have completely ruined the point. The point isn't a nice one, it is a negative one. It is one that I feel needs to be changed. Not for me, but for all women. Go to ANY female's youtube channel and check out some of her comments. She's bound to get crap just for being a female.

And you really think getting angry over angry people will make any impact. Aggression breeds aggression and only thing you will score with what you did is getting more trolling.

As a journalist I believe you have a purpose of making a change. I just don't really see how THIS would do any good.

If you don't want to educate people - fine with me, fine with anyone I guess. But please don't say stirring the nest will make bees sting less.

This is funny and not funny at the same time. Funny because Hillary is making it fun. Not funny because women have to put up with this crap.
Regardless, this obviously affects people and needs to be addressed.

 I thought your article was funny, and I enjoy a lot of your videos as well.  I wouldn't let guys like this get to you.

The important thing is that you know that you are a qualified professional and you are working in a field that you really love.  So who cares what some idiots say.

My wife is a doctor so I completely believe that woman are completely capable of everything men can do...I would be an idiot if I didn't believe that in my relationship lol :).

It gets it out there. Has us discussing it.Will it change anything? No...neither would a piece on how if a person is feeling the need to lash out at someone they should pull a Stuart Smalley instead.

1. For god's sake mmo gamers, enough with the analogies. They're unnecessary and your comparisons are terrible, dissimilar, and illogical.

2. To posters feeling the need to state how f2p really isn't f2p: Players understand the concept. You aren't privy to some secret the rest are missing. You're embarrassing yourself.

3. Yes, Cpt. Obvious, we're not industry experts. Now run along and let the big people use the forums for their purpose.

I got an elusive "hot gaming chick" by inviting her to PoFire as a part of my server controlling god group (I was a bad ass bard and anyone I didn't approve of who entered the zone was trained immediately).

 

I had a titan grip on the entire market of powerleving AA's in EQ1.  I felt like a meth dealer peddling out free AA candy via full castle camps and shaker spawns.  I allowed her into my elite group and made an effort not to drool over her like everyone else in the group did (I was too busy being a fucking bad ass to do that).

 

Morale of the story is:  If you want hot gamer chicks, be a bad ass and deal meth.  Also be a man and play on Zek, you can only rule a server with an iron fist when there are no rules, and Kings get all the bitches.

Some of you have a serious case of vagina envy. Yes women tend to get more attention than men.

We tend to get more attention, but this is not attention we always want.  We have to deal with sexist morons and people who think soley with their penis. But to say our successes are soley due to our gender is disgusting and stupid. It's personality that gets views, whether you have a penis or a vagina, or both. If  people find you fun to be around you'll get good attention.

But if you really think women only achieve success because of their sex appeal, then maybe you should look into starting your sex change and find out how things really are.

 It's funny because there are actually a bunch of movies about this very topic.  Off the top of my head...

Tootsie

Mrs. Doubtfire

Ladybugs

and of course, the classic, White Chicks

And actually on a more serious note, there are both men and women who use sex appeal to drive their careers.  But this does not necessarily mean they are lazy people or not good at what they do.  I mean, look at models...do you think it's easy to maintain their figures?  I honestly would not want to do it.

A couple of questions:

  • How much control do you have over what you write?
  • Who chooses the topic that you will discuss for the week?

Well. Judging by some of the reactions I think we can safely chalk one up for Pokket.

Hey can I write for mmorpg.com aswell? I can also talk about stuff in life and I even have a hot girlfriend so if I post pics of her once in a while I'm sure I can get a few people to attempt to read what I type :)

 

Nah seriously, gamer girls are just people. But give me the job she does and I'm sure I can do it aswell. I somewhat think (and I know this is probably WHY she typed all of this) that she gets the job because she's a girl. And even better, put a big girl in her place and she probably never got the job. So many guys want her job and yet none of us get it though we MIGHT be better or more experienced. Sorry if I offended you.

Then what will you do when those same internet fools won't even give you the time of day?

Thank you for proving my point ~.^

 Please, I'm not one of "those" guys. I'm basing my opnion strictly on the fact that I don't like you. I've never seen your tweets, blogs, or anything other than what you've written here and one youtube video. I don't like your smug little attitude and I don't like the fact you appear to be getting somewhere based on your popularity with the same audience you are apparently lambasting. Like I said in a previous post if you were 300lbs and ugly we wouldn't even be having this discussion because talented or not your face and name wouldn't be all over mmorpg.com.

Aemi. No one always gets the type of attention they want. Do you honestly believe anyone actually buys that statement? Its a cop out. The difference between women and men isn't negative attention. Its positive attention. There are a lot of men who have never once rec'd any positive attention from women ever. They wil probably never admit it but its not an abnormal male experience for a guy to go his whole life without a single woman ever so much as hitting on him.
I remember hearing a theory that we are all descendant of 40% of all the men who ever lived but also 80% of all women who have ever lived. I don't have a source for that but I don't find it hard to believe. Men who are desired are the minority. For men it is seen as the ultimate luxury to be desired.
We all receive abuse. It's just a question of where from.

What is "real"? How do you define "real"?

8/06/12 6:41:44 PM#79

Thanks for the laugh, Pokket!

 

Unfortunately for you, it sounds like you are writing from experience.  :(

 

BTW, what was your email address again?

 

 

 

HAHAHAHA!  Just kidding!

 

 

 

 

BTW Pokket, don't sweat the "small stuff".  That's what the guys you're talking about usually have.....small stuff.

You want me to pay to play a game I already paid for???

Be afraid.....The dragons are HERE!
