Sick of getting harassed when playing video games online, mostly from men after they realize I’m female. Let’s raise the next generation better than this.

You're riding in the epicenter of incels that's why


To be fair most gamers are toxic to all groups of people, just happens to be whoever hops on the mic


No, good point SC2. I meant to say “most toxic gamers are toxic to...”

Hell, a bit of banter is fun for me from time time as well. Nature of all things competitive.

Not a fan of occasional 12 year olds yelling slurs, but then again 12 year olds have been edgy idiots since the dawn of time.

Anyway git gud.


Well, like they say if you want to see change in the world start with you. If you raise your kids well and others do the same then we’ll see what change there is


Somethings never change, most gamers are toxic incels hence a toxic online gaming landscape. I’m a guy, and I quit playing online a few years ago out of annoyance for this reason


Players have been this toxic online since my quake days. When I get a chance to play I still play on mute all for most games like the old days. Much more peaceful that way.


Just out of curiosity, is this realistic?



I remember being 11 and getting made fun of for how my voice sounded on the mic when I played CS. Look at me now.



What game!?


I always mute my mic bc the types of people playing and talking are not even slightly rational. If you just listen to the majority of comments, it’s clearly from people/kids who are very immature or looking to make people mad. Not the type of people I want to really waste my time arguing with lol


And this is why I pretend I am male while online (but everyone usually assumes this anyways)

Same girl- what games do you play and which console?

Just for not very scientific research, have you noticed if those guys have been pro-Trump saying this like Trump 2020!? I don’t know if it’s just me but I every time I’m with toxic people, most of the time they’re talking about Trump and I don’t if it’s just anecdotal evidence

It’s done to trigger you.


Git gud, and most of the flaming stops.
In the game, only skills matter.

No way man, I’ll chirp even if I’m throwing up goose eggs against Shroud or Dizzy

Anyone from Slalom willing to connect? I have been reading about the firm and it definitely sounds too good to be true, would love to hear from some actual employees.


Anyone shave with a straight razor? I hate paying for razor blades, and have only really found one company who’s blades I really enjoy. Interested in converting to the straight razor but I don’t know anyone who uses one (my facial hair is disgusting and patchy so I maintain a clean shave, can’t just switch to a trimmer) - 1) how hard is it to learn how to do. 2) How hard is it to maintain the blade. 3) Recommendations for brands to buy/what I would need to get set up?
