I would hazard that it wasn't that they didn't want to play with you, but that they didn't want to lose to you.

I can't say I've ever been turned away from gaming because I'm a woman, but then I spent highschool in mens jeans and tshirts and no makeup* so I was probably less foreign looking. One of my highschool friends even created an Honorary Boys Club Membership card for me (with a, er, member on it to make up for my natural deficiency).

But it doesn't surprise me to hear about adult gamers who are still freaked out at the idea of talking to women. The minority who use roleplaying as a substitute for social skills are a minority, but pretty high profile. These days I think their numbers are declining in RPGs because the internet gives them a way to only have semi-social contact in a structured way that doesn't even require putting pants on.

* Now I wear womens jeans and tshirts and no makeup, because my body shape doesn't work with mens clothes any more.

Plus there's more porn on the Internet than in the average RPG session.

That hadn't occurred to me, but considering that I was (and still am) a newb, I didn't see that as an issue, lol

A google search for "boobs" gives 46 million pages; I doubt even Mark could fit that much into a single session.
