    • Quote from a woman about playing League of Legends.Hummin Senior MemberBeing a female I agree that we have to hide our gender because people do nothing but make kitchen jokes, aboutbeing overweight to play this game, or asking us to show our body parts. Its also like a global taunt on yourself,everyone wants to kill you because "female gamers dont belong here". I play with my husband and some of ourfriends, and when someone finds out im a girl it turns into a horrible game, with either my team refusing to help mebecause I die once even if Im doing well. My own team will harrass me and treat me poorly, thus I refuse to say mygender in most cases. Alot of my past friends never even knew and the team work would be great and I can supportor carry if I want. Now with the skins, I do mainly play female champs, and I own all of them, plus skins. I dont likehow alot of them look like their tops will fall off, and I dont like how their backs have been disfigured. other skins dontappeal to me. I personally love my mythic cassiopeia skin, wicked lulu, I own frenchmaid nidalee and her egypt one. Iunderstand from other games to get males to play women champs you have to make it something nice to look at. Igenerally dont play males, I do own nunu ez taric ali cho kog, and I often play shen gragas corki mao and skarner. Ilove how diverse those champions are in looks and the way they play. the female champs may be overly sexualizedbut aside what I have already typed here it dosent bother me too much. what really bothers me is I dont get treatedlike a gamer who loves the game, works hard to win, and learn great placements, I get treated like someone whoshould be playing hello kitty and making food for men in kitchens, or like every male in the game wants to give mefree mammograms.
