Soooo, every time I play multiplayer on a public server, there’s always someone who assumes everyone’s pronouns are he/his. It’s funny, but it definitely gets annoying — like not everyone who plays video games is male
- Have you ever been misgendered in a game?
- Do you correct the person who misgenders you?
- What are some experiences you’ve had with being misgendered?
- Have you ever been misgendered in the Episode Community?
I’ve definitely been misgendered while playing multiplayer games, but I honestly don’t mind it. I actually find it amusing and, strangely, I kind of enjoy when people online can’t tell if I’m a man or a woman… but I’d probably wouldn’t appreciate it if people misgendered me after telling them I’m a woman
I’ve definitely been misgendered in general, especially on sports video games I play. I’m a girl but my username makes me seem like a guy.
BRUHHHH the sheer amount of transphobia I have dealt with in the multiplayer community is OUTLANDISH.
I have been misgendered all the time, almost everyday to the point I seriously stopped caring.
One of the extreme experiences when it came to me being misgendered was when a guy tried doxxing me on counter strike cause he kept on insisting I’m a girl and wants me to get killed for being a tr4nny.
About the Episode community, honestly I’m BLESSED that I still haven’t been misgendered. Idk what the future will hold though.
I never turn on my microphone. Can’t get misgendered if they don’t have anything to work off of.
I’ve been misgendered on video games before, but I low-key don’t mind cause some people act weird when they find out you’re a girl. It’s very uncomfy
I’m a gamer and haven’t come across this but I had someone ask me out that was odd. But I guess my username gives it away.
it was ONE time, someone assumed i was a male for some reason in among us my username was “joanna” bro-
also why even assume someone’s gender when they/them pronouns exist? it’s not even that hard to use them i-
lowkey don’t mind people assuming im he/his (bc i am lmao), but since I don’t necessarily look the part, most people just use she/her
still, i feel like we need to make they/them the norm in online multiplayer games; i hate it when people just say ‘no one cares’ and continue to use he/him smh
I have been misgendered a lot of times on video games and it so annoying. Ofc I correct them I don’t want them to think I am the opposite gender. I experience them on video games when my profile picture isn’t exactly a boy or a girl it’s just like a sky or something aesthetics, they assume immediately that you are a boy…My question is, why?, Why do you assume that girls who play video games are boys? I have not been misgendered in the Episode Community!
It’s really frustrating tbh whenever they just assume without asking or thinking!!!
