im a GUY saying that u shouldnt make fun of girls for not playing minecraft or even being on the internet. girls understand that sports and otherthings are better for ppl. we think that that is stupid and that we dont need to do sports. so my point? DONT MAKE FUN OF GIRLS!
My wife, her sister, my daughter and three to four other female friends and colleagues all play Minecraft. None of them frequent these forums though, they've all pretty much transitioned to the Reddit and Discovr.us forums where the maturity level is a tad higher.
I wouldn't base any of the polls here as fact, or even being close to the actual ratio for that matter, I've read several Social Psychology, ESA, and Neilson studies that put women at ~23% on console and as high as ~40% for PC titles. Don't take my word for it though, do you own research and take from it what you will.
