"Despite the female player base, the game is clearly designed around the male audience." Really? I'm not going to swallow that WoW is a men's game and then accept any and all inappropriate behavior because I am not a man. And I highly doubt that's the case anyway- would be bad business, and Blizzard is historically pretty good with representing both genders (kind of) respectfully. But hey, if they don't want me in WoW, I'll gladly transfer my membership over to Pink Princess' World of Bakingcraft and Flowers as soon as it's released. Wait, no, I won't.Men can talk however they want, but I am not going to group with them if it bothers me. I drop the F-bomb occasionally, perhaps that's bothered someone and I've lost their company (and consequently DPS/heals/tanking/whatever). If they're going to toss the word "rape" around like it's a greeting, they're going to lose mine. If it persists, I am going to report them to a GM and /ignore. It's not politics, it's actions and their consequences. In short, I think my skin is fine just the way it is.
