Maybe it's because your a girl, but there's absolutely nothing wrong with a girl being a gamer, that's why their called "Girl Gamers", & girls that play video games, (Just saying) I think that's kinda hot lol :p ^_^
It's probably because you're female, people are sexist that way. By gamer, you dont mean up till 5:00am trying to find the sword of azaroth so you can fight the goblin ambush waiting for you on level 37 of World of Warcraft, right? (I just made that up, I'm not into that stuff actually)
Well, not as many girls play video games as guys do. Some guys think that if girls play games they have to be girly, so they get surprised when they hear of a girl playing black ops or other games like it. Also, if you're popular or really shy, they might not see you as the type who would like to play.

Well based on your personality it might surprise some people , but you can't really determine what someone likes to do for fun in there spare time based on who they are or how they act . In my opinion it wouldn't really be a surprise it's just a video game it's not like your growing a beard . Video games aren't only for guys .
You're a girl, most guys don't think we can play video games. .___. But, I'm actually better than a lot of my guy friends on the Xbox. So my point is proven...we can play video games better or just as good as the dudes. ^_^
Like most people have replied, it's because your a girl. When people think of gamers, they see a fat guy with a headset on sitting on the couch. Nowadays though, there is a wide variety of gamers and the newer group is girls which most guys aren't used to playing with. The closest thing we ever had to girl gamers were 9 year old kids with high pitched voices who thought they knew everything. If someone is surprised that your a girl gamer, take advantage and add them as a friend, many people like a girl who plays games so they can have something to relate with. Be glad to be a gamer even if you're female
