Hello! This will be a collaborative blog with me and Daisy Rose. Daisy is pink, and I am blue.

I think guys are treated unfairly because when they really need something, no one will give it to them. One time, when I was playing as Ethan, my brother, I needed some bread and everyone was like, "Find it yourself.". Some people had enough to spare, but they wouldn't give anything to me because my name was Ethan and not Daisy. I just walked around until I died. People expect guys to be the good at the game, which I find untrue sometimes. But they expect them to not ask. If you really need something you won't get it.

Well for starters, guys always tend to flirt with girls, give them free items, or just plain stalk them on the server. One experience I had was when I was on a server, and a guy kept shifting me until I told the admins, and they calmly told him to stop. He said he would stop, but then while I getting supplies, he found me and killed me and said, "THATS WHAT U GET 4 BEING A B*TCH!" and left. People usually tend to think that girls can get whatever they want, but sometimes they just want to be left alone. Another issue for female Minecraft players is how they are treated like they can't do anything. One time, I was in a PvP arena on a server, and like 6 guys blocked me and said they'll protect me while they killed anyone who came near me. After they offered to escort me out of the arena, I kindly left the server. Just because you're a female doesn't mean that you're weaker, dumber, stronger, or smarter than guys are. You're a person, you can be any of those things and be either a man or woman. Male players tend to be more sexist toward woman mainly because a lot of people think that Minecraft is a game intended for boys, but really, anyone can play. It's this gaming stereotype that tends to make female players more targeted for sexism than male players.

I know! I'm pretty good with a bow, so when I when I joined a RP server, I joined a town that needed a bowman. I joined as Ethan (I didn't have my account yet.) I started out a newbie of the Bow squad, and pretty soon I bumped the General out of his place and became General of Bows. I when I got my own account, I was so excited because I could finally play as a girl. I joined the town, and said I'm pretty good with a bow like I did last time. Then, he put me as town princess.. I wanted to say that I was Ethan, but I didn't because they have a no multi-accounting rule. (They don't care if you have the same IP, because even the owner had to share with his brother, but if they find anything fishy like stealing and giving to different towns or voting and giving the cash to the account on the same IP, they'll ban you.) so I couldn't say "I'm Ethan." or I was banned. Town princess was really lame.. the miners came in and handed you stuff, and you just crafted stuff, all day. When you were done, you went up to your room with two guards protecting you and just sat there looking at the battle below. One time, Commander of War and the King said the "General of Bows" wasn't there for the upcoming war, so I was said,"I can be general for a day! Ethan's my brother, and he's at a friend's house." They were like "NO." I was ticked, but I loved the server. I was still pretty angry at them for a while. I was glad that the server went down like, two months later, but I still kinda miss it. The funniest thing on that server was when the needed the Princess of Sinjen (Me) and all of the Generals of Sinjen (Including Ethan, also me.) to sign a treaty with Montoca, a town nearby at the same time. I had to take my brother's computer and mine at the same time and sign the book. It was ridiculous.

Yeah.. I just wish people wouldn't treat each other differently because of gender. When I meet someone, I focus on their personality, not their gender. That's how everyone should see each other. It shouldn't be a stereotype that boys are knights, and girls are princesses. What if a girl wants to be a knight, or a boy wants to be a princess? Everyone has the right to be whoever they want to be. If someone was starving or dying in front of you, would you not help them because they were male/female? No. So why would you do it on Minecraft?

I know that this is old but, they are trying to be nice. Even though they do treat people differently based off of gender, at least be happy and accept it, or decline it kindly. I would rather be treated with gifts all around me with a slight annoyance instead of being forced to go on my own and get my own stuff ( I'm not saying that I can't be on my own without help, but I wouldn't mind some help if it's offered.)

Random topic switch! Once I was playing on a server (It's Jerry and Harry maybe I dunno) and some guy was being creepy around me and I was running away in the server instead of leaving. I'm not saying that this is how all men and boys are on the servers. Just an experience that I can barely remember.

Honestly, if men or woman want to be treated fairly on a server then they should step up and MAKE a server. sexism can only be cured in video games by boys and girls both making servers and deciding how they want to run it.
sexism is easy to put a stop to. Idk why many people have problems with it.

Because there are so many people on the Internet who will go and troll and be rude anyways. There's no way it'll end anytime soon completely.

You've heard it a million times. But again. This is very true. On a server running a Marriage-Type plugin. I see girls rich. With all the owners attention too. And getting loads of things from other boys. While most boys are struggling to get even iron. I think it is not very fair at all.
