Here’s a research finding that should surprise no one: The men most likely to harass women online … 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. For their latest study, published in the journal PLOS One last week, the duo watched how men treated women during 163 plays of the video game Halo 3.

As they watched the games play out and tracked the comments that players made to each other, the researchers observed that — no matter their skill level, or how the game went — men tended to be pretty cordial to each other. 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. In other words, sexist dudes are literally losers.

The 'study' is literally a narrative-framing exercise designed to attack Gamergate:

 

 

Betwithme - Makes sense. Nice people, or talented people don't have time to make fun of others. Generally speaking. Phone Post 3.0


Yeah those talented xbox live players are far too busy with their packed social schedules to be mean to a girl.

I think he's saying that many 12 year olds on xbox live are juvenile and don't behave themselves regardless of the company...and that doesn't mean much.

Anybody who plays online can tell you that. Phone Post 3.0

I've seen research showing men are harassed online more than women. But men don't matter, I guess.
