Just to clarify, the advertisement was for a guild wherein phrases like, "LOL u fag" were not going to be used, correct? My impression was that she was saying this guild is a place where your sexuality is not going to be an issue not a place where only homosexuals would be welcome. If that's not correct, could someone let me know? Because if my understanding is correct, then I feel that her intention was to remove references to sexuality from the game for people who are offended by the use of those words? Shouldn't everyone be able to have a guild where they feel comfortable? I actually went to the place where this was originally posted and spent a good hour reading the first 30 pages of the posts. I was personally horrified by the degree of intolerance I found there, but not surprised, and I do respect the right of everyone to have their own opinion. My feelings on someone else's opinion being completely irrelevant. I'm just not sure that the outcry was focused on the correct issue?I'm a woman and, personally, would not want to join a guild in which women were referred to in what I consider to be a derogatory manner. If that were a problem on my server, which it isn't except for the all-male guild I referenced in the other post on this topic, I would appreciate someone advertising for a female-friendly guild. My understanding of such a guild would be that while it is not an all-female guild, this particular guild is not rude or derogatory toward females.In this case, it was the homosexual players who were trying to get away from other players using words like fag and gay, so aren't they the ones who are trying to get away from sexuality in the game, not the other way around?
