About “fake gamers.”

To the idiot who informed me in ninth grade that, because my DS is rose pink, I’m obviously some sort of “fake girlie gamer,” let us deconstruct this assertion.
I worked my butt off for six months to afford my own system, and I bought it used because my parents neither believed in video games nor had the money to spare to buy me a system as a gift. I bought the pink one because that’s what the store had.
I actively dislike pink, but I bought the bloody thing anyway, with money I earned doing web design (and weeding) for my parents. Why? Because I love video games, and I always have. I was willing to overlook superficial stuff like color preference to get to play them.
I’d say I’m entitled to play my games on any color system I want, wouldn’t you?
