7 Habits That Prove You're A REAL Girl Gamer

7 Habits That Prove You're A REAL Girl Gamer



Who else can relate?

1. You check Discord before any other social media.

You couldn't care less about what Aunt Kelly's boys are doing or what borderline-offensive political statement Uncle Joe is posting today, you've got to see what the gang is up to and who's playing what because if it is something good YOU WANT IN.

2. Your fingers instantly go to "QWER" or "WASD" instead of "ASDF" and "JKL:". 

You can probably type 500 words per minute when you have to explain something in team chat/ all chat, but for the life of you when you sit down to bust out an essay for class you have to spend a couple minutes remembering what middle school tried, adamantly, to ingrain into your brain.

3. You can't help but speak up for your side of the PC-Console War. 

There is a correct side, and the previous point alludes to which, but you're more than welcome to be incorrect if you disagree. Don't look at the cover image it only weakens my argument.

4. You decline gifts and offers to be "carried," because you don't want to be seen as a "Gamer Girl."

Plenty of women (and men posing as women) have no problem being barraged with in-game skins, in-game currency, games on your steam wish list, or they attempt to charm and impress you with their video game prowess, usually by way of minimizing your own plays, but that's beside the point. You don't want to lead them on and you don't need their charity.

5. You call yourself "a gamer," just "a gamer."

The title of this article aside, you don't add your gender to your title of gamer.

6. You've got a love-hate relationship with Todd Howard.

You want "Fallout 76" to be good, you want the next "Elder Scrolls VI" game to be good, and you've got your pitchfork ready should one or the other or both be subpar. Maybe I'm just projecting a little here though.

7. You find it somewhat bizarre when people own an Apple computer. 

Can people even game properly on one of those? If so, isn't that a sin? I think there's a couple lines in Leviticus about this.

10 TV Shows You Need To Watch On Hulu

Hulu is slept on


I have recently moved to watch shows and movies on Hulu and Netflix. Hulu has a lot of great shows and movies to offer that aren't on Netflix. While Netflix is still great, Hulu is definitely starting to grow on me. Here are some shows that I have watched or have started watching on Hulu that I think are pretty great!

1. 11.22.63


If you love James Franco and Stephen King, you'll love this show. The first episode is a bit long, but all the other episodes are only 45 minutes. The plot line is pretty interesting. I also like that it doesn't tell you everything, it shows it to you and you piece things together.

2. The Act

The fact that this show is based on a true story is just insane. The acting is really great, especially if you watch actual videos of Gypsy, Joey King does a great job.

3. Castle Rock

Another Stephen King masterpiece. This show is riveting and really makes you think about what the truth is in the context of the story, and brings in some ethical questions.

4. Future Man

I've only recently started this but it's pretty interesting and funny.

5. The O.C.

The O.C. (TV Series 2003–2007) - IMDb


This show was great. Sometimes it was a bit annoying, but it is a classic show from the early 2000s. You really become invested in all the characters and your opinion may change on some characters because they grow and develop throughout the show.

6. The Handmaid's Tale

If you've read the book, you should definitely watch the show.

7. Obsession: Dark Desires


I just love true crime stories and this really dives deep into crime stories and the darkest parts of humanity.

8. Intervention

This show can be really sad or frustrating, but I think it's good for people to see the reality of addiction.

9. Smallville

Smallville (2001-2011)


I also started this one very recently and I've always wanted to watch it. It can be cheesy but it's pretty entertaining.

10. Brooklyn Nine-Nine


This is a great show if you want to laugh. I love all of the characters and everything they bring to the table.
