By Alia Eva | 1 Feb, 2017

Since the advent of video games, the general gender norm has been that only men could have the access to the holy PlayStation and Xbox. Of course, the feminists had to spoil everything with their secret agenda to ruin men and everything masculine and so women started playing video games too. Not only did it surprise men but they also happened to react in a ridiculous manner that is often amusing.

So, if you’re a girl who’s into video games, even remotely, here are moments that you’ll definitely relate to:


1. You definitely been asked this totally not-surprising question: “YOU HAVE A PS4/XBOX???”

Okay boys, (a) It’s not a competition, I’m not jealous of other females who play games. You go gurl! And (b) your girlfriend probably only exists in your dreams.
