It is interesting - you have eloquently described your reasons, and I totally get what you are saying. And ultimately we only have our own reasoning - and our wallets.

But the thing I am thinking about is the 'unintended consequences'. Right now there is a big debate about '#1Reason' talking about the dearth of women in gaming development - and a big part is the total misogyny and sexist 'dude-bro' attitudes of the gaming community at large.

In other words, while the reasons are different, the behavior is exactly as yours - they won't play as a female. Or see them as inferior. The as why an objectively superior FPS like No One Lives Forever with great critical acclaim had crappy sales. Everyone cites Tomb Raider , but that is the exception.
