Anecdote: Why Do Women Hate Games?
While my wife was chatting with her other married friends, she mentioned that I play video games to relax. The other wives were shocked and appalled
Oh my! If my husband dared play video games, I wouldn’t have it!
This is a common reaction among women, and it’s really puzzling, annoying, and unreasonable to me. I can completely understand if I was shirking some other responsibility in favor of playing video games all day, but that’s not the issue.
This women’s husband watches sports which is every bit as lazy and unproductive and at least as mentally passive. But for some reason, the leisure activity of playing video games is actually offensive, while watching sports is perfectly acceptable.
