2. Frequently Asked Questions
2.1 What is the translation of the comment: “bitch”?
Translation 1: I’m a really crap player, but think I’m great, and since I’m also sexist, I swear at the women who beat me, in an attempt to increase my ego a few notches.
Translation 2: With all the possible insults in the world available, I will simply go for the most obvious, uncreative, and least thought-process involved insult I can think of for a female player.
2.2 What is the translation of the comment: “You can’t be a girl, you must be gay!”?
Translation: I’m a really crap player, but think I’m great, and since I’m also homophobic, I assume players, with female names, who beat me, are homosexual, in an attempt to increase my questionable masculinity.
2.3 What is the translation of the comment: “You’re pretty good for a girl!”?
Translation: I’ve spent too many years in a male dominated computer gaming world, to the point where I’ve forgotten how talented and skilled women are. Women are the ones with the long hair right?
2.4 What is the translation of the comment: “You play Quake and you’re good! Will you marry me?!”?
Primary translation: I’ve spent too many years in a male dominated computer gaming world, to the point where I’ve forgotten a proposal of marriage isn’t a casual term for hello.
Secondary translation: I’m a 16 year old male with raging hormones.
