I was wondering how quickly the "Keep your personal life personal" comment would come up.Here's the thing. Telling someone to respond to bullying by hiding whatever it is they're being bullied for is really, really insensitive. I'm sorry- some people don't want to bring their personal life into the game, and that's fine, but acting like this is something that Gender Reroller should have to WORK to hide is really short-sighted and kind of rude.Essentially what you're asking them to do is to curb their own enjoyment of the game- sure you could make the argument that the bullying is curbing their enjoyment of the game even more- that may be true, but if one of the options here is to find another, more tolerant server/guild/etc to play on, then why not do that instead? I think it's incredibly sad that the solutions here- such as just not talking on vent (some of us rather enjoy talking on vent, actually) or lying all the time- are even being touted as "good" solutions. They are not. They suck. I wish I saw less of this and more of people chewing out the bullies, because just ignoring the problem doesn't help it go away.The Drama Mamas have given some very good solutions here for trying to find a good solution that doesn't involve hiding who you are. For some of us, hiding who we are online is second nature, but for others it isn't, and it's silly to tell someone the best solution is just to try and be someone you're not.
