Good for them. As an adult bisexual man I definitely understand the frustration with many aspects of gamer culture. For me its references to things being "so gay" (oddly, "so ghey" is probably more offensive, go figure) and suchnot. For the most part I'm able to filter those kinds of things out, but I do absolutely get where they are coming from and wish them all the best.It's probably worth noting that I have heard of similar guilds in other games (my spouse plays Runes of Magic and has run across adverts for all-female-player guilds that use ventrillo to verify before you can join.)

Being a straight man I find the use of the word "Gay" for anything bad really offensive. There is nothing I hate more than hearing someone say "That's gay", you know unless they are talking about actually being gay.Being a straight man actively involved in the theater community a large portion of my male friends are gay (I know another stereo type), and it hurts me to see their lives made a derogatory word.Skraps
