Tbh, I'd say a good 7 out of 10 "gamer girls", pretty much pander to lonely losers for favors, no matter what game you're playing.
It doesn't even turn a head, when some newbie female player, or some dude pretending to be female in most cases, are flirty right out the gate and overtly reap the benefits of loose behaviors. Staff and players of games, and especially a game like Arm, are easy marks for these kinds of tactics. I'd go so far as to say, it's the smart way to go about it if you don't care about pride/integrity, seeing how certain staff past AND current, get nervous or aggro, when a female player is assertive or confident, or directly rebuffs forward/flirty suggestions.
If you aren't barefoot and prepped for the kitchen, and regularly talk about your vagina like its an amusement park open to one and all, there's lots of players who will resent you or seem to feel threatened. You're the girls that picked on them in high school, or whatever, I guess. You see it CONSTANTLY in game, where Flirtman the Burly tries to get all chauvinistic and assertive over some generic bar fly female, gets rejected, and instantly takes it out on her like shes the cultural weirdo. The best ones, are the ones who keep trying, whilst repeatedly acting like you're not playing right, for not always being down for some D. Its ridiculous.
Equally ridiculous, are how many female pcs are constantly portrayed as submissive cocksockets in need of manly protections, when thematically, that kind of behavior SHOULD make them oddballs. But certain staff seem to love it, and the mostly male pbase is all about it, so it gets a pass, and even praised.
Its all fucked up, imo, and neither staff nor the player body, REALLY want a game where the sexes are equal. They just scribble it on the tin, so as not to set people off at a glance.
So, maybe she's a dumb slut keeping the usual company with the usual behaviors, or maybe, she's smart enough to know how to game a bunch of sex starved internet losers, to her maximum advantage. Or maybe, shes just playing the game, and someone decided to make up some shit about her and post it on the internets, because she beat them at the game they dream of being the winner of. Who knows, or cares, really. Are is rife, with stupid, retarded behaviors.
I mean, even if it ALL went down, EXACTLY like the thread has been supposing, it wouldn't even qualify as a scandal, at least by RP mud community standards, and certainly not by Arm standards. There are literal ex-staff posts here, about much, much worse than this, and the horridly toxic behavior top side and game generally. This is, like... the sunny side of Arm, rather than some shocking expose.
The only reason its even getting ANY kind of traction here, is because there is fuck all else, to post about.
