Girls Can’t be Gamers
Submitted By: Dani | Age: 16
I am a huge gamer. The love of my life is my xbox 360. Everyday I play on it, whether it be Assassins Creed 1 2 3 and 4 Resident Evil 5 Halo Gears of War Fable 1 2 and 3 or my favorite two Oblivion and Skyrim. I’ve heard on more than occasion that I can’t be a gamer cause I was a girl.
The first time I heard someone say that to me was in 7th grade during gym. I was talking to a close friend of mine about the game I was playing at that time. It was Oblivion. The guy in front of me said “You shouldnt play video games.” I asked why and he answered “cause you’re a girl – girls aren’t supposed to game.”
I was furious. I dont care what they say, I can game as good as the next guy. I have been gaming since I was 5 and I’m still doing it. I’m not stopping anytime soon. I’m proud to be a girl gamer.
