They expected special treatment, they bitched and pissed and moaned more than anyone else, they took offense when I told them to buck up and stop being shit, they cried when I swapped them out for the sake of fairness, they created drama between guilds and on forums (WoW and guild) and they generally expected to be given a pass on shit play during raids with a giggle or a whine.
That was the vast majority of women I played with over a period of maybe 6 years. While the good ones were VERY good, I can count them on one hand.
Combine that with the rhetoric that's build up around gaming in recent years - with people like Anita Sarkeesian pretending to be 'gamer girls' in order to raise over $150,000 to support what basically amounts to an attack on gaming culture, for no reason other than to further her own academic career in feminism - and you have a recipe for bitterness.
