I'm going to lock this one Skell. I have a reason for it.
1st off, being a woman that has gamed since the Atari first came out, I know a lot of other women that are the same. We just don't go around pointing it out. Be assured there are a lot of women/girl/gurl gamers out there but most just don't want the harrassment or feel the need to explain their presence.
2nd off, these threads have a tendency to get flamey and insulting to women that do game. I get tired of hearing how women aren't as capable or must all be ugly etc. It gets old and the sexist comments only serve to drive other females away from the forums and the game.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it. /lock
