Naw man, e-girls are a thing. They're just as pathetic as their orbiters. Insecure women feeding off attention of lonely men.
I don't know if you spent a lot of time playing mmos but if you have you'd be dumb not to have noticed that. I spent a LOT of time playing Tera, a korean mmo with highly sexualized characters and a holy trinity system (DPS/healer/tank) that was perfect for sub/dom dynamics.
This game had such a large healslut/e-girl culture almost built into the game that it was insane. Most of these girls would act like the biggest catty scum while simultaneously leeching off all the rich, p2w players. Their gear would get funded by those guys, some would even buy them irl things like computers, headesets, mics etc. Not to mention a large majority of those girls (75% or so I'd say) would be absolutely trash at the game and they'd make it a part of their character, "I'm so ditzy and such a scatterbrain while I play the game and browse my phone at the same time uwu".
I'm talking as a person that knew almost the whole end-game population on two regions, so of course I'm aware a lot of girls were normal, nice, skilled and actually had personalities but to deny the existence of e-girls is just ridiculous.
One thing worse than e-girls in tera were the traps/trannies, and that game had plenty of them.
