When I logged onto the site this morning and saw this article posted, I thought: great! WowInsider is acknowledging the fact that there might, y'know, be social implications to a game with such a large player population -- the largest in the world, last I checked. But then I thought: now here comes the conjecture, name-calling, dismissiveness and general trolling that always accompanies said acknowledgement, especially when dealing with a subject that's still divisive so many years after feminism's first wave. Before you wade into the comments here, I urge you to check out the article linked by WI:http://community.feministing.com/2009/04/wow-thats-boring-lets-add-sexi.html)In the comments there, you'll see that it's not only possible to have a thoughtful discussion regarding this topic, it should be mandatory. Thank you, Robin, for this article.
