Specifically males attacking females which Mistie points out in this thread. I don't think you realize girls are generally easy targets in the gaming community. It's a widespread issue, not just on Growtopia. Anywho...your comments are counter productive to the topic.
    Why do we even need to bring gender differences into this?
    Because in the end, kids attack everyone. Females do not get "harassed" any more than what others do.

    Also, I'm not blaming children's "offensive" behavior on stupidity, I'm blaming it on them being CHILDREN.

    You have no proof of "girls being easy targets in the gaming community", because that's simply not true.
    You can't say that "my comments are counter productive to the topic" without a based argument.
    No need to bring feminism into this.

    Ephus hun, you've never walked a day in our shoes. You do not know what some females have to endure. Especially in the gamer community, females are often harassed especially in this community. There is clearly a divide between females and males.

    The growtopia community is not only 'kids'. Sometimes (in-game) guys who claimed they were older than me told me they were going to do stuff that is not appropriate for a game like growtopia. They make crude and inappropriate comments on us that can really hurt our feelings. You just fail to understand the truth.

    You just fail to understand that this happens to everyone. And nobody lies about their age, right?

    You do know what everyone has to endure, but you refuse the fact that this is happening to everyone regardless of their gender.
    Then you come in here and claim that it is only happening to females? You've never walked in our shoes either, so you don't
    have much say either, I at least accept the fact that this happens to everyone, and I have learned to just ignore those kinds of
    people and move on.

    This has nothing to do with gender. Everyone gets the same amount of toxicity.

    The comments that everyone face hurts the feelings of those people who can't ignore people. You need to grow a thicker skin.

    as much as people think that gt is some sophisticated adult run mature game it is in reality majority filled with kids. very young kids.
    on top of that, compared to other MMOs a VERY large portion of the game don't take english as their first language and are bad at it.
    so what do you get when you mix young kids who aren't good at english and a anonymous platform? every insult they can think of. i can guarantee some players don't even know what "gay" or some other "insult" means and are just spamming it because if they said something in their language you wouldn't understand.

    realise that the games community(or should i say a portion of it) are very toxic.People that scam, betray others, and would do anything for wls, if they can do all this why would they be a respectful person?

    and the people that say "Sir", simply say it because they either think you are a pro or they want something from you (usually a donation). they go to literally every player in big name trade worlds and do the same thing where they call you sir for a bit and then ask for wls. they are more focused on if your character has expensive items than if your character looks like a girl.

    on the topic of male players getting treated differently, it's complicated.

    people in gt aren't like people in other games, despite what people seem to think. il give the example of Overwatch or any fps game really.

    if you are female in Overwatch and speak in voice, chances are you are gonna get a bunch of either trolls or thirsty dudes.and they are gonna blame you and insult you simply because you are a girl. the amount of toxicity against females in those games are pretty insane.and they aren't kids either.

    but in gt the players don't care if you are male female or whatever. they will insult anything and anyone. if they tell you to "make a sandwich" (which in my 5 years of playing this game i have never seen happen),they are just trying to get in your head, and it works. just try switching accounts your changing your set to look male and watch as you still get the same amount of insults thrown right in your face. yea, they won't tell you to make a sandwich. instead they will tell you all the things they were doing to your mom last night and spam every swear word they know followed by every swear word in their native language.

    But with all the people that are willing to turn their back on friends for profit and scam others, is it really the insults that hurt people in this game?

    Grossout event items are underrated, eyes on stalks are a masterpiece.

    I understand that both genders get harassed, I'm saying females get harassed way more than males. I feel like most guys see girls as more vulnerable, therefore easier to pick on and harass. Some guys also may feel that because I'm a girl, they're immediately superior to me. So yeah, gender MATTERS. We sometimes get told some awful and disgusting stuff, worse than you males do.

    That's not a Growtopia thing, rarely happens in Growtopia, in other games, probably does.

    Also, I have been told the worst things you can imagine many times, but I have the emotional ability not to care that much about it.
    Females are usually more emotional, so they may take it more seriously, and it may hurt their feelings more.

    While on the topic of that, just today, a female player was berating me with the worst things that one could say, and then decided to do a SB about how I scammed her.
    (Which I didn't do).

    I just laughed it off and ignored her.


    Now, we should stop this unnecessary drama, to avoid punishments.

    Hol' up there,

    First of all, im not trying to invoke a fight. Pls no :[

    most of the "gamer girls" that get harassed has done something that made people angry, thus making them insult her. (Alinity?) I've played alot of multiplayer games but I've never been insulted for being a girl. (My name is kinda masculine but i usually wear as much feminine clothes as i can.)

    Those men are either actual kids lying about their age or boys below 18 trying to assert dominance by threathening to do something to an actual stranger. Even by 19, they still think that they're the and will try to prove his superiority to everything that comes in his vincinity. In that case, he hasn't matured and has an attitude of a kid. Don't be swept by whatever they're saying and just ignore them.

    I'm sorry for you. You should just ignore them. Don't let them get to you. This is honestly disgusting. There's literally no way you can describe this level of toxicity.

    Also, Sharox has a point, female players are easy targets in the gaming community. It's not only gaming but outside gaming too which makes me get even more disgusted.

    Hey, i suggest you to ignore them. Lately I’ve seen that happen and nowadays there is just too much bad behaviour in Growtopia. Today Few people came up to me and started trash talking me. And the funny part is I’ve never seen them before
    Well, stay strong don’t let people with bad attitude get in your nerves.

    Injustice happens for feminine men, too. For instance, I consider myself to be one of those men. I take care of how I look, how I talk, and how I act. A big portion of the Growtopia community makes it seem like basic courtesy and kindness are gay (together with my insightful nature and it gets worse). I say otherwise.

    P.S. I did not grow up with a prominent father figure throughout my lifetime. I was always with mom growing up. Shunned I was from my real-life community in the elementary/early high school days for not catering to juvenile immaturity. I am now 17 and still struggle to adhere to the standards set for me.

    On a side note, I believe that there are more female players in the game than others would like to assume. "Cultural appropriation" is, unfortunately, one of the biggest factors why the mistreatment occurs. "Culture" alone is a high profile culprit, but that's some deeper stuff to delve into. We must become culturally competent.

    P.S.S. As a response to your previous statement of having worn male hair to ward off those who harassed you, I have tried that method beforeβ€”albeit in the reverse role. I completely understand your concern. This might be funny, but I blended FAR too well.

    I never thought it would be possible for 9 lads to be chasing me all at once!
