I guess this is off topic, but most of the issues are on home, but I understand the organization issues.

From personal experience, gamer girls are the best. After spending some intimate time, you can go and talk about games or have a couple rounds together, or watch your partner play. It's just so much fun to be with a gamer girl. I will be marrying one in October after 4 and half years together. I've had a few relationships and I've never had as much fun as I've had with my soon to be wife. She's way more of a gamer than me. I usually use my PS3 for Netfilx or PSHome as of late, but she enjoys her games. I like to see her happy when she brings home a new game, or I surprise her with one. If you have a gamer girlfriend, consider yourself lucky.

 

As far as the topic goes, I feel sorry for females while online as I've seen how they can be treated. When my girlfriend use to go on PSHome, it didn't take long for the pervs to try hitting her up. I myself found it funny at first, but then noticed after a while, she couldn't go anywhere without being harrassed. I could see it kind of bothered her, so she quit playing PSHome. She just stuck to her games and never plays online. Dudes can be pretty stupid sometimes.

I'm interested to see this documentary and if they offer any realistic solutions to this issue. Raising awareness is awesome, but changing this behavior is going to be one big mountain to climb...

It's the same mountain women have been climbing since someone decided to peg females as unequal.  It is a shame that it is still going on to this day.  It is very unnatural and is only taught through social queues and the family circuit.  I was lucky enough to have a lot of  tough female role models allowed into my life that I wonder how can this still be the case.
