Twitch Streamer Ninja Explains His "No Female Gamer" Policy

The biggest streamer is under fire for a statement he made about why he doesn't want to be under fire. Ironic. But that is par for the course with the online video gaming streaming industry which has sprouted multi-millionaires just streaming video games with their own personality. Tyler "Ninja" Blevins has publicly stated that he has a policy of not playing with female gamers. Blevins gets around 145,000 views a stream, and that is just the last time I checked, and his success was tied to the video game Fortnite which was arguably a huge part of why he became so huge.

But now Blevins is saying that he does not stream with other female gamers and has explained why. "I don’t play with female gamers," he said in an interview with Polygon. This may seem surprising, but if you know anything about the internet you know how quickly rumors, memes, and toxicity, in general, get started.

"If I have one conversation with one female streamer where we’re playing with one another, and even if there’s a hint of flirting, that is going to be taken and going to be put on every single video and be clickbait forever," Blevins explained. Pretty much anytime a female streamer plays with a male streamer, rumors fly and it has been shown to be the case time and time again. Blevins is actually married and says he doesn't want to subject his wife to the rumors and hurtful comments that would inevitably occur.

"Not being connected to other women online, that was something I made 100-percent sure," he said as he explains that the decision not to partner with female streamers was solely his own and had nothing to do with his wife. "That was not even her. She had nothing to do with it. That was me being, ‘I love our relationship,’ and, ‘No — I’m not even gonna put you through that. The only way to avoid that gossip is to not play with them at all."

Blevins released a statement on the subject on his Twitter account which can be read here:

Here are some of the reactions from other Twitch streamers on Blevin's decision.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">y’all if <a href="">@Ninja</a> actually did stream with a girl it would be a disaster. this community is a toxic sexist shitshow and she would be labeled his side bitch, relentlessly harassed for being a homewrecking slut and spammed with “begone thot” trolls etc etc etc fuck that</p>&mdash; laura lux (@DarthLux) <a href="">August 11, 2018</a></blockquote>

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Ninja can choose to play or not to play with whoever he wants, Get off that mans back lol. Can&#39;t be upset if he chooses not to play with you because of HIS OWN feelings towards HIS OWN relationship unless you&#39;re a clout chaser, regardless of gender 🙅🏼‍♀️</p>&mdash; Daequan (@TSM_Daequan) <a href="">August 13, 2018</a></blockquote>
