Oh, sexism. Never ceases to amaze me. There was a dad at the school I used to work for who would call in and scream at all the women, and then tell the men that "he couldn't believe they could handle working with so many women". FYL indeed, OP.

Bloody hell sexism is awful. But if they want to fire you fine just sue them in return. Reason why he was complaining is because he is probably to scared to talk to you.

Yep. A lot of states can fire people at will, but gender is one if the federally protected demographics and is an unlawful reason for termination.

All the girls I've run into that work at video game stores were not only quite nice, but they were cute too. And killed at COD and Battlefield. Your DM is a fuckstick.

Best part is the customer was just to embarrassed to admit the OP knows more about games than him, and apparently the DM too!

Agreed! If he does end up firing you, ask upon what grounds. If you think he's lying, you can cite this conversation.

A few key things to know my friends: 1. Remember that lawsuits are extremely expensive and can go on for years if not months. 2. Your bills do not stop. So look for new work immediately. In some states you can still get 100% of the claim even if you work. It's known as a reparation. 3. Taking out a loan will only work if you win, otherwise it's a potential "shot-self-in-foot" scenario. 4. Also, the US Employment Benefit Payment Control denies payments pending lawsuits in lieu of ter

I'd like to know what the sexist joke was so I could turn it against the pig. Too bad the mods made it bite the dust.

Being a girl gamer is hard- if you play online and need to speak.. Everyone goes silent and you can almost hear them saying "...girl...oh my god..." It took my guild on Warcraft forever to accept I was actually a girl. No one believed me until I was like fuck it and went onto voice chat- and they ended up disowning me and saying things like I shouldn't be playing boy games and I should be in the kitchen, etc. I left their guild and I am currently in a more accepting guild. Sucks someti

There are plenty of girls on wow, but I'm not surprised that some didn't believe you and we're being immature!

I deal with the same problem at my job. Being a female in a hardware store exposes me to a lot of discrimination and I've had tons of customers tell me that they needed a man to help me instead. It's frustrating.

I don't know why people care so much about sexism (I mean the sexist side/the discriminators) can't they just not care about it?

67 - there's a big difference between being "irked" by something and being blatantly sexist/racist/other-ism against it.

18- That definitely sucks. That used to happen to me due to my age, because I am very young compared to my coworkers. Eventually I decided to use that as motivation to show everyone I was just as good as they were; it ended up with me getting a big promotion over those who were older and "more experienced". Keep your chin up!

I think I'm gonna make an FML: Today, I realized that I've never met a girl that likes video games. FML.

I played against a female gamer in mvc 3.She is the only one I've ever seen...she sucked and rage quit,calling me "some fat@$$ who can't get laid" before leaving. but I know they aren't all like that and hope to meet some in the future I guess. didn't remember her gamer tag though.

I'm a girl gamer. Wow you just met a few on here ;) My cousin (also a girl) was at GameStop last night to pick up RE 6. So far its pretty awesome. :)

I'm a girl and I love gaming.. I play eroge , amnesia , the diablo series , American McGee's , portal, and visual novels. I personally don't understand why more girls don't game , it's a fun way to relax and escape. Have a nice day fellow gamers.

52 - I find it surprising you've never met one. As a group, we love to brag about it to get attention from the opposite sex. :I

101 - ooh Diablo gamer! Nice; which hero are you playing with? Surprisingly I've met a few girl gamers that are into Diablo. Message me your ID if interested in co-op!

I'm a girl and I love playing cod, gta, halo.. pretty much anything with shooting :D Girl Gamer Power!

You probably don't know a lot of gamers then :P. I play Lord of the Rings Online (lotro) and I'd say about half of the people I know are female.

I'm a girl and I love playing games! I play Halo reach mostly and have made friends (all guys) who automatically assume I'm a guy and then freak out when they realise I'm a girl. Its kinda lonely being a girl gamer though I have no girl friends on there

I'm a girl gamer, I play a lot. L4D one and two, cod, gta, amnesia, hospice ( another version of slender), heavy rain, Diablo, and for some entertainment happy wheels xD

198- I play Halo Reach too. That's how I met all my friends, who are all guys. It's a lot of fun to use my mic when they start questioning my friends if they are sure I'm a girl or not. They go silent pretty fast lol

Reply

most of my female gamer friends tend to go with non-feminine tags because its annoying to hear two things repetitively "get back in the kitchen" (and other sexist comments) or "OMG girl gamers are soooo hot" So probably you do play with quite a few and don't realize it

Female gamer here. ^^ Play alot of WoW, had 14/14 mythic in SoO, but also Skyrim, League of Legends and Diablo.

Reply

This is true! Ppl don't even know what we look like or even who we are but we get harassed just for being a girl! I've never had anyone be mean to me but I have had more than one guy try to get my phone number..

You think gamers would want girls to work at video game stores. Then they actually get to interact with girls

I was thinking the same thing, but apparently Mr. Sexist enjoys his right hand over an actual, real woman. Hope he enjoys his mother's basement!

If fable 3 sucked why do so many people still play it? That goes for fable 2 as well. The fable series is awesome and I'm a fellow gamerchick.

Technically, you can fight this since this is a clear example of sexism and your DM is being prejudiced for horrible reasons. Don't let them oppress you, fight to win >:(
