I was reading on another forum which is basically a gamer girl forum (they say all are welcome though so I signed up) and literally every other post is of a girl complaining about guys harassing her in games to the point that they no longer want to use voice comms, are cautious about their nicknames, etc

Do girls who play video games despise guys who do the same thing???

I play games and I obviously don’t want to be harassed, but that doesn’t make me hate all male gamers. My gender can’t be identified in any games I play, so it isn’t an issue for me.

I have male friends who play and online gaming is just toxic in general. I avoid certain games and I never use a mic when I’m playing with strangers.

Yeah, online games can be very toxic in general and because usually those games are played by people aged 15-85, quality of team mates varies A LOT.

It's still an issue I was not aware of really. I knew if a girl joined our party, people would be asking in private msgs whether she's hot or smth but I never noticed anyone harassing any girl...

Most guy gamers are for lack of a better word, simps. They worship girls cuz they rarely interact with them and will probably treat you like a unicorn. But a significant minority is gonna be vulgar and rude (and not just to girls but it's more sexualised harassment towards them I guess).

thats exactly it. there are some male gamers that assume girls will be crap at gaming, and when a girl is actually good they either simp for her or become defensive. then there are some male gamers that just harass any girl who joins. but a lot of them can be genuine and just treat girl gamers as normal people.

simp doesnt have to mean overbearing, just thinking she's unique lol

thats the problem. they think shes unique because they usually think girls are bad at gaming, and shes the only exception, even though thats not the case.

Not at all, they think she's unique because it's rare to see a girl in our games and also some of us are lonely so we might romanticise girls a little bit.

What you're talking about is not simping, it's being a ********.
