    So some simple wuestions for inforum statistics :

    How old are you ?
    What cromosones you have ?
    And from what place you come from ?

    For me I am male 18 and come as my name says from Vienna.
    I think there are still to few female players and to few older people.
    And I hate france for only reason I had been in french elementary school.

    So now tell us about you.

    Yeah, there are too few female players ... I think that they are not interested in computer gaming frown (at least the majority of them)

    i dont know whether i should say any of that considering most people hate me :lol:
    I live in England if that helps though, and i think gaming is dominated by men as i never see girls playing any games, apart from age of mythology sometimes confused

    I don't think it matters how many girls are in gaming. Who cares? If they wanna play, great, another target/opponent/teammate. If they don't, I'm not going to kidnap them and drag them to a LAN just to play against/with girls.

    Does it matter that people want to do different stuff?

    Here at my school, its 75% male, 25% female (roughly). We are known for engineering and science. People are always saying "Women need to have a stronger presence in engineering and science." If they don't want to be engineers/scientists, why bug the hell out of them to do it? But we give girls special scholarships to attract them here, and we spend money and time trying to attract more females, even if a more deserving male doesn't get anything.

    And speaking of gender bias . . . Why are people saying "There are not enough women in ______________."? Does anyone ask, "hey, we need more male dress designers, or ballet dancers." You never hear that, do you? But it doesn't matter.

    People will do what they want, let them, stop commisioning surveys to figure out why there aren't more woman/minorities in _________. Trust me, with the media the way it is today, if anyone is being rejected on the basis of gender or race, it'll make the news faster than you can say "gender/racial bias."

    That being said, having more females on this campus would be nice. Eye Candy. MMMMMM Candy. :lol:

    I already have a girlfriend, FYI.

    I think mccreary has a point. I think some people ask too much about girls and boys with gaming. I understand if your curious but some people just go over the topic too much. You shouldn't force or discourage people from doing something. If girls want to play, great. If some 60 year old wants to play, great I guess.
