Cosmo Says: Girls Who Play More, Get It On More
Well, if Cosmo says it, it has to be true. They've never been known to publishing anything false for the sake of attention...
But anywho, at least gamers can interpret it as good news, provided they don't think too much about it. As several sources around the Internet have already noted, the most recent issue of Cosmopolitan features a downright stunning revelation concerning females who play video games. We all know the stigmas and stereotypes, which makes it all the more shocking: according to their "survey," women who play games get it on more than those who don't; four times per week instead of three. They suggest getting a Wii or going to an arcade because the guy will be in "man-date heaven."
Now, we hate to play devil's advocate here, but- No. We won't do that to you. Let's just wonder aloud about things that won't dispel this wonderful idea. ...um, do you still have an arcade in your area? And do actual gamers go there, or just kids under the age of 7 and girls who think it's more like a carnival? And does it have to be the Wii? Now aren't all you girls insulted at the stereotype that only girls would play games that...well, aren't really indicative of where the industry is? And what the hell is "man-date heaven," anyway?
Well, we'll just leave it at that. You guys can enjoy the fantasy as long as you like. Remember, it's in Cosmo.
