Title: New Feature Unlocked: FEMALE ONLY!
Post by: DeviantProtagonist on June 17, 2016, 09:43:14 pm
Tired of the toxic atmosphere of gaming? Well now you can sign up for a special Xbox Live service, FEMALE ONLY, where you can play with girls only (http://www.xboxoldies.com/news/xbox-live-is-getting-a-no-trash-talking-and-females-only-mode/). Sorry guys!

So for thoughts, is this even a good idea? Would you use a female-only Facebook? What about a male-only Ebay? Maybe the time is nigh for gender only sites.

But really, though, I can only liken this to a pillow fort with the sign, "No Boys Allowed!"

Certain genres, especially...

As for the article itself, it's basically just promoting a clan system in XB1 and using "women only" as an example. The clan system doesn't look like anything out of the ordinary.

Yeah, blame the article for that bait. :P

While charitable as this sounds, I doubt it'll fly given the nature of people; between user segregation and falsified genders, you're bound to cause an outstanding shitstorm once a girl gets banned for not being feminine enough.
