    Hey there!

    I'm just wondering if anyone here has experienced blatant sexism when gaming, especially if you are female. I am asking this because my major school project is about sexism within video games specifically aimed towards females. Parts of this include stereotypes towards female gamers and character designing. I'd love to know your thoughts and opinions on this, and your experiences if you have had any!

    Thank you.

    **DISCLAIMER**
    The answers provided will most probably be used within the outcome section of my project, however names will be kept out of it and it will not go beyond the eyes of professionals.

    come again? how ironic, the first response to this post is from a bloke dismissing sexism - and in the most incomprehensible way!

    I have seen it in engineering, usually where males (I won't call them men) want to be seen as best without putting the effort in.
