Hey! This is sort of a rant, but it's not off-topic because it is to do with gaming, and the mineplex community as a whole. First off, let me just say, I dislike girls who pull the gender card for no reason, and this thread isn't about that. However, I have seen a huge amount of players using "egirls" or "girls" as an unironic insult to me and my friends when playing. If they are joking, then I completely understand, the whole 'gamer girl' meme is pretty funny, but it's when they aren't joking when it annoys me. A lot of people genuinely like to insult girls for playing purely just because they are girls, or if they aren't great at pvp, they say "Ofc you can't pvp, you're just an egirl." It's super discouraging to newer players, and although I can understand that it is partially from a meme, you can't just disregard the underlying misogyny in the sentiment. There still is progress that needs to be done to make gaming as a whole more inclusive for everybody, and I think there is a thin line between taking a meme too far, and actual misogyny. Obviously it does't just happen in minecraft, in games with voice chat is where it's most bad, because you can immediately be identified as a girl, but it does happen a lot in mineplex too. This happens mostly when I'm playing combat games like Cake Wars or Bridges, and it's started to really annoy me, because it just comes from a place of really backwards thinking. Again, if they are joking, I really don't mind, I find it funny, but some people do use gender as an insult in a serious way. I've seen it a lot in gaming and general, and, sadly, on mineplex too. What's you guys' take on it?
