Actually a lot of female gamers refuse to talk in vent because they do not want to be bothered when they are proven to be females. There was a woman here at my work who was a guild leader. She talked on vent once after 6 months. That was followed by everyone in the guild asking her constantly if she wanted help with anything and also flirting with her. It drove her away from the server.I can guarantee that there are just as many females pretending to be males as there are males pretending to be females and that these females do it to avoid harassment. A lot of us females just want to have fun playing the game and not treated like we are any different.I am definitely female and have a social anxiety disorder. I get by fine by typing but I do not talk on vent. When I've tried I have started shaking and feel sick. The few times I have talked on vent I have analyzed how aweful I sounded for the next week, even having nightmares over it. It's a phobia, which actually is a medical condition, and it's valid. I play a ranged dps and have good situational awareness. I research fights and spent 30k to power level my skills to 525, just for raiding. Not every person who doesn't talk on vent is like the one being described.
