Oct 22nd 2010 11:51AM Drama Mamas, you two usually give stellar advice, but I am really disappointed this time.
You tell her to keep a low profile. What on earth? She should absolutely not have to tiptoe around and keep her gender a secret. You're contributing to our misogynistic culture by giving advice like this.
People are jackasses, yes, but you shouldn't live your life pandering to them. If the guild is full of sexist assholes, then leave. There are plenty of hardcore raiding guilds that are perfectly happy to have women... in fact, I would argue that the large majority of them wouldn't think twice about having quality female players.
When a girl tiptoes around quietly, not being able to talk freely because it would give away her gender, she's giving the jerks power that they most certainly do not deserve. Guys don't have to keep their identity a secret -- why should we?
Oct 19th 2010 6:40PM Well crap, looks like I'll have to quit the game come December. I just can't afford to buy a new computer. =(

It just -fits- for a night elf druid. I have about 30 other titles, including Kingslayer and Twilight Vanquisher, but this one is by far my favorite.
Oct 15th 2010 1:50PM Honestly, I find it really sad that we have to have "LGBT friendly" guilds. It's sad that we have to have guilds where racism, homophobia, sexism and bigotry are specifically not allowed.
Every guild should be LGBT friendly, because LGBT are fellow humans, just like us. Every guild should be free of racism, homophobia, sexism, and bigotry, because these attitudes are disgusting and degrading of our fellow humans.
Oct 15th 2010 9:23AM Wow, it definitely sets my mind at ease that you're not "jocking around"! Jock straps are pretty scary.
Oct 14th 2010 3:47PM I knew something was wrong when my 75 frost mage was doing as much dps as my ICC geared ret pally...
But it was fun to queue into BGs as fire and 1-shot everyone. Many warlocks were set afire. It was a good time.

Oct 13th 2010 2:08PM Am I the only one who purposely resized WoW while in windowed mode in order to make all the water disappear? =P
It looks quite hilarious with no water, let me tell you.
Oct 13th 2010 11:25AM I don't mind that much because druids in original lore were all male, but on the other hand, it does bother me to think of my pretty female night elf turning into a tree with a beard and a soul patch. =/
Oct 4th 2010 11:53AM Yay. This is right before my finals week. >.>
