I don't know what the difference would be between girl and guy gamers. We both game, and we're obviously both here for Star Trek right?

Males & females approach pretty much everything in a different way. We are designed differently, our brains are wired differently, and we think differently. The differences you can see by looking at the outside only just scratch the surface.

I think the main reason most of us want to know who is male & who is female, is because we treat men & women differently- and so we should. The differences may be subtle, but they are important.

Age, race, nationality, religion, culture- all of these things can be set aside, overlooked, or ignored in the online community- but our gender is a very integral part of who we are.

I very much enjoy the differences.

This is pretty much completely and perfectly unlike the truth.

So you are saying we shouldn't treat men and women equally.

While my first impulse is simply to respond with FAIL, further consideration suggests some benefit could be obtained by elucidating the illogic of this statement.

To wit: Men fight. Men fight over which sports team is best. Men fight over poorly constructed sentences. Take a jaunt over to CNN. Much of what you see there is political bickering. in spite of a growing female representation most of the partisanship was created by men to manipulate other men. Then there's politics by other means. That is "War." That's has, historically, been men sending other men to die over a disagreement they had with still other men.

The point is, if your logic obtained none of that would have ever happened, because men would understand each other. The "Woman as Other" is a myth based on simple fear.

One should note, I did not say women's brains were "wired" like men's. They, in fact, are not. But the differences do not show a significant variance, except in a few narrow areas (such as spacial perception and lingusitics) and even in those areas the variance is only marginally above noise (in other words, men are slightly better at geometry and women slightly better at communication, but that's only on a very broad scale. Odds are any particular woman or man would be no better than average).

SCIENCE

You wrote the first thesis response.

lulz responses are the actions of small minds with smaller *****es. If you can't play, stay home.
