Girl gamers – fat, ugly or slutty? (NSFW)

Girl gamers – fat, ugly or slutty? (NSFW)

What do you do with the offensive messages you receive online from asshat gamers? Save? Delete? How about capping it and exposing for all to see?

Enter fatuglyorslutty.com. The premise is simple enough; each time some douchebag sends you a sexist and/or offensive comment via your console – something, regrettably, I have some experience of – take a cap, submit it to the site and – bang! They’re named and shamed for all to see.

As the website states, “Some players like to send creepy, disturbing, insulting, degrading and/or just plain rude messages to other online players, usually women. We think this is funny [ ... ] But instead of getting offended, we offer a method for people to share these messages and laugh together. If having these messages posted online makes someone think twice about writing and sending a detailed description of their genitals, great!”

Knowing first hand the difficulties trying to appease critics who either don’t understand or appreciate a sardonically entitled website, it came as no surprise to me that the site has been both rated and slated in equal measures. But the idea – a place for female gamers who have been harassed to collectively share and shame their harassers – is not without merit. What do you think? Is it about time we exposed these unduly offensive perpetrators for what they are … or is this fueling a fire that we simply need to leave burn out?

For more delightfully insightful messages from other wonderful gamers, head on over to the fatuglyorslutty.com website. It’s worth a visit – we only posted the slightly offensive messages here …

Let us know if you see any gamertags you recognise!

  1. Wow, I would have never thought of anything like this, but I really think its a good idea. About time someone called out all the assholes who think it’s ok to berate and harass people who just want to have fun. Although, unless I go to post something onto there myself, I won’t be visiting that website. Reading comments like that just pisses me off and makes me want to slap some sense into people. XD

  2. I’m a male and the guys that harass girls over video games are not real man and never become real men. I feel so sorry for girls wouldn’t you guys rather a girlfriend that will play halo with you. Are You guys got such a low self esteem that you have to threaten a girl over a game. Did your moms not give Yous enough attention???? Would you sad arses say this to a male oh wait you’ll say yes cause it’s easy to hide behind you consoles. But when it comes to the crunch you wouldn’t. Remeber what you saying to girl gamers could be your sister what would you think and feel then. Grow up male gamers. Yous are disgusting and this is comming from a male gamer. And great job on website was listening to bbc radio and heard about this site. Well done keep up the good work. Mybe us male gamers can learn for this let’s hope so.
