Ray, I think this stamp and your statement is wrong. Cause if you wanna be accepted as a 'gamer', stop separating yourself from other gamers by putting yourself in a category that puts you apart from them :I
Well you're trying to be proud of the fact you're a 'girl gamer', which is putting yourself in another category away from other gamers. Surely if you wanna not be a surprise when they come upon you in a game, you should just call yourself a regular gamer just like them.
By classifying yourself as a girl gamer, you're choosing not to just be a gamer, so you're separating yourself from a normal gamer. Just cause of your gender doesn't mean you need to put yourself into a category.
You are though, you're putting yourself apart from everyone else, if you want to be accepted just declare yourself a gamer and then people won't find it as weird(which they already don't) to see a girl playing a game.
it's not even unusual for 'girl gamers' to be around. i don't entirely get why you need to label yourself as a girl either, it's like saying "im a blue-eyed gamer!!!". you don't hear people say that do you? no. everybody here is over exaggerating about males reactions to a girl playing games, i play games and i've never come across someone who says "OGM YOUR A GIRL GAMER?? I DONT KNOW THOSE EXISTED 0:"
calling yourself a girl gamer is just another silly way to whore yourself up some more attention tbh.

Well, most people think girls don't play games. I am better at gaming than my dad, which he's been playing for 20 years, which is impressive. Yeah, but I've met people who think girl gamers are horrible. Not true.. :/

I know! I guess I just think of gun games when I hear girl gamer, because that's all I ever played. xD But, it's not just 'a game.' In my opinion, It becomes more than that when I put my time and effort into it.
you don't have to play violent games to be a girl gamer..? there's many more genres of games out there, and i'm not talking about candy crush sega or whatever. there are male gamers out there who don't play shooting games yet they are still classified as gamers. i reguarly play games and have even taken part in competitive tournaments before and even earned quite a bit of money out of it, my brother does the same and we are most likely considered gamers yet we don't necessarily play gun games. this is a stupid example but it's like saying "oh heres a carrot they can be a vegetable because they are orange but food like broccoli can't because they aren't orange"
