As a fellow hardcore gamer girl, it's so very refreshing to see the public embrace a gamer girl...well, most of them anyway. There will always be the segment of the game population that just wants to a) make her into eye candy or b) dismiss her as a fraud/bore. But those people aren't loud enough to squash out what the good guys are doing.I'm no bra-burning, man-hating feminist, but as a female who has been in the gaming community for 12 years now (my first online game/MMO was Multi-Player Battletech at age 14, and I cut my teeth at a very early age on Wolfenstein 3D) I know how hard it is to be both accepted and taken seriously. I think Felicia is awesome. I'm proud of her and the breakthrough she's made, and I really appreciate the way she's becoming a role-model for other gamer girls. I'm the GM of my guild on WoW, and I'm a bigger dork than my husband. Our friends all find it most amusing that I can out-geek him at every corner, and that we're not allowed to settle debates/chores with video game competitions (do the dishes or get teabagged!).Thanks for bringing us this interview, wow.com! I raise my pink crochet needle and tip my Tier 8.5 hat to you!
