But, it's pretty sad. Gaia used to be a place where everyone was accepting and genuinely nice. Now, Gaia is mostly full of self-righteous jerks who troll the forums and try to spin everything in a negative angle. I don't really see a problem with thinking I'm awesome because I'm a female gamer. I never said that no one else was awesome. Honestly, I think everyone is amazing and that everyone should think they are. I'm sorry that I don't have to go around shooting down what other people post to make myself feel like I've accomplished something. If you don't like what someone posts, here's an insanely wonderful idea. Ignore it. Because all you're doing is ensuring that my topic stays on the first page every time you add something derogatory. So, thank you for showing the wonderful world of Gaia that most of us are now pricks. Much love. Peace.
I'll admit, I wasn't too thrilled about this sort of topic either, but this particular post is spot-on. It seems nowadays that nearly half of the community is on a constant hunt for ways to shoot down other peoples' opinions. If you say you want game suggestions for a PS3, the firsts posts are about how PS3 sucks. If you ask a question regarding Christianity, the first posts are about how religion sucks. If you start a discussion on favorite MMOs, the first posts will be about how MMOs all suck. Here, you brought up girl gamers, and the first posts are, sure enough, about how "girl gamers" (quotes emphasized) suck. neutral
It's... really a bit depressing, huh? I have to wonder how this ridiculously cutesy site attracts so much negativity. sweatdrop
Anyway, to keep with your intended topic, I'll toss out a semi-half-baked response regarding the awesomeness. If you even *think* what you're doing is weird, and you do it anyway, then that shows a blatant disregard for conforming to social norms. And that, in and of itself, is exactly what the world needs more of. Especially since that whole negativity thing seems to be one of those social norms, itself. 3nodding
