  1. Re: Interesting article about Sexism in Geek Communities Thats very disturbing. Of course, 50 Shades is apparently building on the foundations of Twilight; a series with its own relationship-abuse and esteem issues.
  2. Re: Interesting article about Sexism in Geek Communities Ill admit it. I havent been on a date in a while. A WHILE. But that doesnt entitle me to treat anyone else as anything other than a Human Being. With all that that implies. (Thoughts, opinions, moods of their own, things to do, and all that). If some people cant see that, then....yeah, theyre sad.
  3. Re: Interesting article about Sexism in Geek Communities Noah Hughes seems like a reasonable and generally cool person. That interview has me wanting to play the game. (Im a lapsed fan too)
  4. Re: What Have You Watched Recently? I just recently started watching the reimagined Battlestar Galactica on Netflicks, for the first time. Id seen half the pilot and jumped to some pretty WRONG conclusions. Im glad I was wrong. Its much better than I thought it was going to be. Just started Season 2
  5. Re: Interesting article about Sexism in Geek Communities When Im playing a tabletop RPG I dont want another player to be in awe of me, I want someone who will be able to HELP ME LIVE!
  6. Re: Interesting article about Sexism in Geek Communities I still get baffled by things like this. Why wouldnt gamer guys WANT more gamer girls? You know? People they can TALK TO about their favorite hobby? Also I hear, even today, the "all MMO players are guys" meme, and it just stuns me. Ive known many, many female gamers, people I know in real life, who play MMO's. Its frakking 2013, people! Get your heads out of the 20th century and into the 21st! Oy!
  7. Re: Quote of the Week from my gaming group... Steel Jackal: I dont know how youre here! Youre supposed to be DEAD! But -I- should have been the one to kill you! SO NOW I WILL! *Fires energy bolts at Gold Guardian, who barely dodges them* Gold Guardian: Your targetting system seems to be a bit off...I could recalibrate that for you if you- Steel Jackal: I CAN CALIBRATE MY OWN SENSORS! Im a good scientist! Gold Guardian: ...Youre a..."good"..scientist Steel Jackal: GWAAAAAHH! *pew pew pew pew pew* (This ends up with Gold Guardian hacking Steel Jackals suit and

  9. Re: What Makes An Iconic Superhero Costume? Elegant simplicity of design. Overy busy costumes are not "iconic" even if they are in some way memorable. As far as "undies on the outside" there were (and are) a vouple of very good reasons for them. First: They allow a more dynamic color break for the costume, rather than the "unitard" look youre starting to see in modern superhero movies where costume designers think of the trunks as "dumb", because they dont know any better. Second: When youre a guy wearing skin-tight spandex, wearing trunks over your tights allows you to not
  10. Re: What Fantasy/Sci-Fi book have you just finished? Please rate it... "Cold Days", latest in the Dresden Files series by Jim Butcher. If youre on this forum and you havent read Dresden, you have a treat in store for you...
  11. Re: Interesting article about Sexism in Geek Communities Well....thats the opposite of a good idea. :/
  12. Re: Interesting article about Sexism in Geek Communities When I was in high school, I met a girl at a convention who was there in a rabbit-fur bikini and boots (not cosplaying a particular character, just running arund in a costume cause it was OK to do at a con in the 80s), and she was GORGEOUS. I mean really, really beautiful, and in phenominal shape. I was stunned. And yet somehow I got her to go out with me, and I dated her for several years (until my own stupidity caught up with me when I went away to college). When I met her, she was a gamer. And a painter. And liked to bop peo
