The point of the matter is that he said something that can be seen as having a sexist slant when he has no information or data to back him up other than "what he thinks." A lot of people still think boys are the majority in all gaming, but some surveys have shown that girls are actually starting to out-number boys in particular genres. Would've been better not saying anything or actually looking at the OP to see what the gender is, since, you know, it's actually there.
While yes, op is male (those who can read enough to see the male symbol will know that), maybe you want to get out of your room a bit if you think only guys own xboxes. I own an Xbox 360, wii, ps2, ps1, n64, snes, nes, and Atari in addition to a gaming computer... Do the math on how long that makes me a gamer. I'm also female. Try drop by a con now and then. While males still outnumber females.. In the past couple years it has been pretty damn close in attendance rates between genders.
It will be alright if you're a guy . But if you're a girl , good luck !
I think what crazyforcheese meant to say was that if op is a guy he will be alright if his videos end up online because no one will care much about seeing him naked and making it a big deal. But if op is a girl then good luck to her because if her videos make it online she will gain a bad reputation; because that is how bias people are when it comes to gender issues.
