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.

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.

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 termination or past terminations. 5. Finally, also keep in mind that you (or an attorney) still has the burden of PROOF that they fired you for that comment and NOT for any other blemish you may have in your record that the company can stated they decided to get you on in the past. They could state "we held back until we had enough of the repeated offense before terminating (said employee)." We all make mistakes so it's likely that they will use the most common one you make (be it immoral or innocent) to justify the action. And depending on the judge's political perspective you could have someone who doesn't buy it or someone who is completely on the employer's side. There's very little in-between perspectives in the judge circles when it comes to this. Anyways that was long winded but this is generally pretty normal for me. I hope this helps you and others who intend to sue their employers to build stronger cases. :)

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 sometimes.

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.

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'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.

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!

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

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

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

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..

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 >:(
