Gaming on and off for almost 20 years, (Wow, been a long time since I was in 3rd Grade!) In that time, I've met about 11 female gamers. A large part of the problem is the perception that gamers are geeks. Then there's the fact that the gamers that are geeks have so little exposure to dealing with women, that they either seize up or try to hit on them. Sad really. Worse still is that fact that 4 of those women were really nasty and bitchy. The fact that two were lesbians dating each other made the guys trying to hit on them in for a really bad time (one was extremely possessive).
