    Female ghosts face uphill battle against sexist Call Of Duty idiots

    The introduction of playable women soldiers into Call of Duty: Ghosts has caused quite a reaction online among the male-dominated legions of CoD fans, a response that has been largely tainted with sexist and derogatory comments toward women. We can only imagine the abuse that females who want to play as a soldier of their own gender will face online.



    The announcement from the Call of Duty Multiplayer Reveal Event yesterday in Los Angeles immediately brought back memories of multiplayer Black Ops II battles where a female dares to speak up. Rarely has any female we've seen in-game got through the match without some derogatory or rude comment being directed toward her.

    It also stirred memories of one Call of Duty female gamer who has stuck up for herself online following abuse from male players. Jenny Haniver blogs and talks about her experiences online as a female on her website www.notinthekitchenanymore.com, which include instances of being called a $#@! and some shocking verbal abuse in Black Ops II. One guy sent her a voicemail saying, “I’m gonna impregnate you with triplets and make you have a very late term abortion.”

    The arrival of female soldiers in Call of Duty: Ghosts is simply going to take the abuse to another level. This much has been made crystal clear from the moment the announcement was made and many of CoD’s idiot minority crawled out from behind their PC screens to so bravely take to social media and online forums with jibes at women and have a laugh--remarks such as, “we can’t wait to teabag them.”

    While some of the negative online reactions are obviously meant to be tongue-in-cheek, including the 'joke' that female characters will be given a free DLC map on release (followed by a picture of a kitchen), it must be disheartening for women who have long tried to shake off the image that they should stay at home to cook and clean while their husband goes out to work.



    There's not a gaming forum on the web where comments such as this haven't been made. Check out this one, for instance, from some hilarious dude called The Stig, a poster at MMGN.com - "The female soldiers carry portable cookers to aid their male teammates with freshly cooked sandwiches." Oh, how we laughed.

    What's more shocking are when the comments take a sexual tone. "There is going to be a lot of rape," writes one loser. “ahhh finally a 'female' char to suck my balls,” writes another. The tone is quite sinister and incredibly offensive. "Oh, this is going to be baaaad! "Base-Rape", "Tea-bagging", "Tits or GTFO," concludes one guy who obviously can't wait to exert his superior manly powers over the female species.

    The Call of Duty franchise is dominated by males, so it's likely that there'll be dozens of rude teenagers masquerading as female characters (wait for the sexist YouTube clips to appear), but can you imagine if an actual female who dares to speak steps into the role of female soldier? Hold tight ladies, there's some serious abuse coming your way.

    PSU would like to stress that not all CoD gamers are foul-mouthed, childish idiots. There are many very nice and polite CoD players too. If you find any, or if you are one, let us know your PSN ID so we can celebrate your refusal to debase the opposite gender.

    Are we really surprised, your average(just average not all mind you so dont go flaming) COD player has the iq and maturity of a 4th grader(regardless of their age) and use the word bro, n word, and mention weed in about every sentence they say.

    Oh and Halo had female soliders first and it did not have any where near this amount of immaturity.

    i use female models whenever possible in FPS game because they are often smaller and make less noise.

    Nobody gives a $#@!, I don't get shouted at in sexist ways.
    I do get a few "WTF" though, which might be due to them thinking I am female.

    I'll grant you that female performance on a battlefield will be eclipsed by their male counter parts (and cause other problems), but given this is a video game and there are female gamers I don't see what the issue is. But yes, sexist jokes will be made.

    Yep, adding females to the mix will only make the online experience even worse. I will do everything possible so that my little brother doesn't buy this game.

    I don't get why people are being moronic. It's just a character. My GF plays COD and the messages and things they say to her are just disgusting. People need to grow up.

    The only problem I see is if they make the females smaller and with smaller hitboxes.. but I can't see them overlooking that.

    Kitchen DLC? That's $#@!in' awesome. That made me laugh out loud. lol! Where do people find the time to come up with these things. Man, I got a chuckle out of that. It is sad that chickens are subject to such rude comments and abuse online, but as I tell everyone you gotta throw on your shield. Remember its THE INTERNET and that people are going to do what they are going to do. I guess its easier said than done, though.

    Is this the official Twitter account from CoD:Ghost who posted that kitchen gif ??? How $#@!ing low can u get as a game developer ? This is not cool let alone political correct. This seems be more like a Muslim Brotherhood campaign then an advisement for a western FPS game.

    They can easily and realistically balance that by making the female characters slower too.

    Unless there is a huge difference in model size I expect hitboxes are the same size.

    I would be more concerned with the sounds they make.

    Are you nuts? No way in hell that's an official account. And people have to lighten up. Never in my 26 years of existence would I have thought people would be so damn sensitive in the 2000s. lol

    I think it's sexist to engage in protectionism over female gamers. Girl gamers have been gaming as long as gaming has been around. They know what they are stepping into and they are certainly a tough lot for it. So, rather than handing out tissues for all the "poor ostracized female gamers" out there, try this instead... Pass the ammo.
