The article “Girls can't play”: The effects of stereotype threat on females' gaming performance is
talking about impacts of stereotypes treats on female online gamers’ performance. It is obviously
a gender stereotype. Male tends to think that female are bad in games. It is a typical stereotype.
Gender stereotypes are still strong and ongoing. It is the same as the past where people think that
male are much more better than female. The authoring trying to tell us that stereotype is a serious
issue. Male is more acceptable as a gamer whereas female, they have to finish their chores by
cleaning the house.
It highlight the harmful effects of negative stereotypes in females’ gaming performance. The
society suggests that female should be eliminated from gaming as they are “female” and gaming
is only for male. This article justify that how severe stereotype is and I am going to interview
citizens of malaysia on stereotypes issue in Malaysia.

boys are policemen and girls are metermaids. Women is considered as the lower class. Man are
often considered as higher class. Woman are not as clever as man. Woman holds lower status
jobs and man take huge responsibilities. Woman are less capable of handling tough jobs.

woman in houseworks and cooking.
