oatmeal:

*update from the author*

A lot of people seem grumpy about my latest comic about online gaming as a girl.

I wasn’t implying that girls suck at games. I was implying two things:

  • When girls play, often times no one takes them seriously. 
  • If they screw up, often times the room is filled with lonely dudes who say things like “LOL that’s okay! Will you marry me?”    If I screw up I get eviscerated.

In short: a terrible female gamer gets away with way more than a terrible male gamer (like me).


This came from my recent escapades playing Left4Dead online.

Again, I meant no ill toward lady gamers.

aaaaaaaaactually, in my experience, it tends to be more like if I make a mistake, i’m representing my entire gender, am lampooned mercilessly, and reminded that all girls suck at playing games and “lolz this is what hapen when girls play vidya gb2 stove room xD”

no disrespect to the author just a different point of view. we all see ourselves as tortured souls don’t we?
