Competetive tales-
Being female, I know males will sandbag or will not play at their best when fighting females.

Even though this is incredibly insulting and stupid, do you still use it to your advantage?

I don't. Aura knows where I live and I'm pretty sure she's capable of killing me if I ever did. ^_^;

What exactly do you mean by 'use it to your advantage'? You mean, to fool someone in a tournament as means to advance? I wouldn't say so, but if that was the case, it would be their own fault.

I don't 'use it to my advantage,' per se, but if they treat me like that and sandbag right off the bat because they immediately believe I won't be a challenge, I'll play innocent, play my best, and make them feel like an idiot in the end.

You can always tell the difference between someone sandbagging to save their true display of skills for a tournament, for example, compared to a guy sandbagging because you're a chick. The latter is actually pretty rare, but it does exist. In any case, you can usually tell the difference, and it's only insulting when they do it because you're a girl.

From my experience, even when that has happened, they learn their lesson right away, say, "oh, so you really know what you're doing," and play you like anyone else. It's just a matter of people getting over the stereotypes, because once they've learned through you, they won't do it again to any other person. These people usually aren't even very good, and the people who are very good are usually just joking around when they say sexist things because they really do know better.

Never happened to me, actually, people told me "women doesn't have eye-hand coordination".
People always have the "you play ok for a girl".

No, but it's fun to watch their reactions after you beat their faces in. :>

I'll only sandbag against girls if I already know theyre not very good, like for example my gf barely plays smash, and if i dont sandbag against her she'll get mad and quit playing xD

DynaDash, i've gotten that first comment once, but it's all good though, i show em what i'm all about.
But no, i don't use it to my advantage. If we're going to fight, I want them to fight me full on, don't hold back on me or anything cutesy just because i'm a girl, cause I'll take them out quicker than you can say "supercalifragalistexpealadocious". I probably spelled that wrong, but you get the idea.

I have a female friend who owns neither GCN, Wii, or any of the Smash Bros. games.... yet when I invited her over to play Brawl the day I got it, after I'd spent about 4-5 hours getting the hang of Meta Knight, she still beat my sorry arse. XP I know at least one or two other girls who have considerable skill at Brawl...

I generally try to play everyone the same, regardless of gender. =0 An opponent's gender isn't really something that affects how I play. (Although I can't help being impressed if she's not only pretty, but screws me over too. XP)

NO matter what I will always get beaten by a female smasher. Hand down. All are created equal. But one with a higher advantage +_+..

Ask S.N.P. about what happened to him in Axis. Let's just say I literally brawl-ed him.
No matter how fat, no matter how annoying, no matter how stupid, how slutty, how ****ing ****ful a girl on the internet is, there will be a tribe of male virgins to defend her from any real or perceived slight.

Phht, hell no do I do that. I'm dressed like a guy most of the time, too, so... Unless my voice is unusually high that day or someone's observant, it's not even that apparent that I'm female. Or... girly female, anyway. MINDGAMEZ SON

I didn't hold back when i played the one female gamer i did. If I hold back, it's cuz my male friends had so many pride issues, sandbagging is an uncontrollable habit

Usually when I first meet a person on Brawl, they just assume that I'm a guy because they don't know me. Then I pick Peach and they start to assume things. 50% of the time that person leaves and asks if I'm a girl. I say yes and from there on they go easy on me...

Honestly I don't need that. I think that those type or guys are just afraid of losing to girl. They had no problem losing when they thought I was a guy >.<
