"better at supportive roles" - actually, studies find again and again that women have more of the qualities desirable in a leader than men, and this is reflected in the trend that more and more women are getting leadership positions all over the place.That's inside of WoW and out.So how many of the tens of thousands of guilds that exist have you been a member of? Five? Ten? Fifty? Do you seriously think that's a representative enough number?The main tank in my guild is a woman, and out of our six healers four are male. Now, that's not representative either. I also think that there are *more* male tanks and *more* female healers altogether. That's because many people, like you, still have sexist stereotyping from the 1950s in their heads, and act accordingly.To draw conclusions as to skill from that, is dangerous and perpetuates the stereotyping.
