Online sex video game

are the men most likely to have their own problems.That bit of validation comes courtesy Michael Kasumovic and Jeffrey Kuznekoff, researchers at the University of New South Wales and Miami University, respectively.This does not, alas, suggest any solutions for on- or offline sexism, or any hope that it will ever really end.

Male players who were good at the game also tended to pay compliments to other male and female players.

Some male players, however — the ones who were less-skilled at the game, and performing worse relative their peers — made frequent, nasty comments to the female gamers.

Those are, for better or worse, two of the online spaces where this type of sex-ratio imbalance isn’t much of a problem: Women on both sites solidly outnumber men.

At an addiction treatment center in Amsterdam, in the Netherlands, teenagers and young adults begin detox by admitting they are powerless over their addiction.

(A 2014 survey of gender ratios on Reddit found that r/halo was over 95 percent male.) That should sound a whole lot like a lot of other, frequently sexist online spaces: Think Twitter. That’s okay for the guys at the top — but for the guys at the bottom, who stand to lose more status, that’s very threatening.

(It’s also in keeping with the evolutionary framework on anti-lady hostility, which suggests sexism is a kind of Neanderthal defense mechanism for low-status, non-dominant men trying to maintain a shaky grip on their particular cave’s supply of women.) “As men often rely on aggression to maintain their dominant social status,” Kasumovic writes, “the increase in hostility towards a woman by lower-status males may be an attempt to disregard a female’s performance and suppress her disturbance on the hierarchy to retain their social rank.” In other words, like your mother always said, bullies just feel bad about themselves.

But these addicts aren't hooked on drugs or alcohol.

They are going cold turkey to break their dependence on video games.

Children who play four to five hours per day have no time for socializing, doing homework, or playing sports, he says. You can get a 21-year-old with the emotional intelligence of a 12-year-old. He's never learned to play a sport." In older addicts, compulsive gaming can jeopardize jobs or relationships.
