Oct 27th 2010 9:26AM @Jen: I completely agree; however, in my experience, there's not nearly as much pressure put onto a GM husband/boyfriend. Are GM wives/girlfriends capable of causing horrible drama? You betcha. But guys are just as capable. I guess I just felt like there is unfair pressure being put on female significant others, and we have to try harder to "be good" because there just doesn't seem to be the same attitude towards male significant others, or just male players in general.
Just my 2 copper!
Oct 27th 2010 8:40AM lol, you sound kind of like me and my ex. He was the one who got me into WoW, but I became way more hardcore than he was. Granted, he'd been playing ever since launch, so he had reason to become a little burnt out. =P
Oct 27th 2010 8:33AM I'm uncomfortable with this article, and I'm not really sure how to explain it. I think my main problem is that it seems like you're basing your worth on a guy (your husband). You feel like your role is to make your husband look good as the GM and not tarnish his image.
"And if so, how do you assert yourself among the good ol' boys? On the flip side, where have you seen significant others not making the cut?"
This....no. It's not about trying to prove yourself to guys; at least, it shouldn't be. It should be about you playing the damn game for *yourself.* You don't have to try and prove yourself to anyone. You don't have to try and "measure up" to the standards of all the men.
WoW isn't a boy's game anymore. There are a LOT of women who play--I've heard statistics as high as 40%. And a woman's proper place is not to be a guy's "helpmeet." I would rephrase your statement a little: "[As the GM's wife], if I look bad, he looks bad." ---> "As a guildie, if I behave poorly, I will reflect poorly on the guild."
It's not about being the wife or second fiddle to a man. It's about being a team player for your guild. As a woman. And we can do it as damn well as any man.
*goes to get coffee*
Oct 27th 2010 8:22AM Thank you. I was trying to figure out how to explain my discomfort with this article, and you expressed it much better than I could have.
