I'm looking for friends (GIRLS ONLY)
I'm looking for new friends that are girls only, message me
Mainly out of curiousity, why the limitation?
Why do you only want to play with girls? It just seems a tiny bit sexist.
I accept boys I accept anyone who asks! Just pm me! (^_^)
What's so better about girls?
(I'm a girl but I don't get it.)
Um... just out of curiosity, is your mother a feminist? You mentioned earlier in this thread that your mom suggested you should only play with girls; I find this both suspicious, and a tiny bit sexist. Just saying.
While there is no law and no one is forcing you to not be sexist but that don't mean your 100% free of scrutiny when you publicly make a sexist thread then proclaim "Boys cant behave themselves". (that statement is textbook sexism)
the theory of the political, economic, and social equality of the genders
(this thread is many things, but feminism it ain't!)
Now, I'm gonna go hide from the forums... maybe for a year and a half... or forever.... whichever comes first...
Ah, another classic case of people going 'hey, explain a lil bit maybe???' and the poster going absolutely haywire
It's been a while since one of these has happened
Sure, boys cannot always behave themselves, but you're missing the fun, I'm telling you.
If OP wants female friends only, let them? Not everything has to be a 'problematic issue'.
Not really going to bash you for wanting a specific gender friends(even though I disagree with you), but going to the Internet asking for female friends seems a bit dangerous. People could easily lie about their gender.
Also, I could be wrong, but for some reason I'm getting the feeling this is like a 40 year old man that just wants to get info out of people, especially girls. Not saying that you definitely are, but there are a lot of people out there like that. And I know you guys know this, but just be careful on the internet :/
If someone wants to play with their own gender then let them? Like, it's not that big of a deal?
Also just putting it out there, but you can't be sexist against men. Adhering to stereotypes and being biased and prejudiced, yeah. But not sexist. Sexism is a systematic and institutional imbalance of power designed to keep men in power and to repress non-men and deny them any power. Since men are the ones that hold the power it's not possible to be sexist against them.
Prejudice and discrimination happen and can go either way, but sexism only works in one direction. They're both harmful, but not to the same extent.
Also feminism is not a bad word, nor is it synonymous with man hating.
You can say that excluding the male gender is unfair or prejudiced, but sexist is not the right term. ;)
But anyway, like I said, leave the kid alone and let them seek out their own gender for gaming. It's seriously not that big of a deal. Move on and play the game the way you want to play and let other play their way. It literally has no bearing on how you enjoy the game on your own.
1. No one is FORCING them to do or not do anything, most of us are just saying that it's sexist to completely wall off one gender because of the stereotype.
2. That article is wrong.
Among other problems with this article, (mainly that they think they are a better judge of language then multiple language experts who have been good enough to make it their JOB to define words)
There already is a word for a gender related prejudice that only applies to females, it's called "misogyny"
This is what this person seems to think sexism means
Heres an odd comparison:
if prejudice is music, and sexism is classical music, then misogyny is classical choir music.
Misogyny is always sexism but sexism isn't always misogyny.
One is a subcategory of the other.
First, I want you to know that I'm not trying to make an issue of this in any way. But, I would like to offer you some friendly advice.
I understand that your mom wants you to be safe and and she may be afraid of the dangers that talking to boys might bring. I commend her for that. It's always good to teach internet safety. However, if this is her concern then you may want to play a different game or play in single player until she thinks your ready to handle talking to both genders. On this game, you will inevitably have contact with boys at some point or another. That's just the way it is. That's why I wanted to say something. I didn't want you to think you could just avoid all contact with boys on this game because that's not the way it works.
Ok. :) Hope you find success in finding some friends but remember sometimes it's best to look for friends offline instead of online as people can pretend to be something they're not, even girls.
I agree all the way. If i was on game I would like some girl players for friends too. You weren't being "se-ist " (btw people, This word should NEVER Have been said on forum. There are 8 year olds on here. And they don't need to be knowing such things yet. She shouldn't have been targeted like this. Though you do have to be careful on internet. If someone starts acting "funny" just defriend them.So erin, try any "monkey business we'll be on to you...JK :)) Don't take any of what they say to heart erin and don't reply in anger. I would however say in your post that you don't have anything against boys and your mom only wants you playing with girls. This would reduce people's bad replies. (And you people shouldn't have asked bout her mom that way. What's wrong with you)! This makes me sad.:'( Id be your friend, and i'm a very careful person.
(Cristal will not be replying to people who want to start something)
I'm a guy but I can be a girl for you though.
Ahhh you posted it first! xD
Totally unrelated, but, I see that you are a Soul Eater fan and wanted to say hello, from a fellow fan XD.
And also, don't worry, it's okay to want to have female friends. I think maybe your wording was read wrongly by some people but all in all, that tends to happen more often than not here.
I'd be happy to talk with you if you'd like ^^. Fell free to PM me~~
