Read this to have any clue as to what I'm talking about.

Thank gods for lorazepam. Really, thank gods. It is the only way I am all up in this post (the linked one on the beta forums), arguing back and forth with all the idiots who are screaming "censorhsip!!!" and "coercion/pressure!!" because numerous women have stated that they are uncomfortable with the dialogue of a questgiver as it stands and offered several possible solutions.

I expected a good bit of backlash from men, but it's sad how many women have spoken up to say that they see no problem with a character that hits on you and reduces you to your looks while a male character is complimented on his strength and prowess. Aren't we supposed to be worth more than that?

(I meant to post this earlier this morning but apparently didn't click the post button before I zonked out for the day. Whoops.)

direct link to the forum thread now that it's loading for me again. I'm Eilwyn on there.

I'm creeped out by that kind of behaviour in RL, it's horrible to find it in games, too :/

I wish I could say I expected better of my industry. It's surprising, too, given that the WoW players I know tend to be female.

If it helps, they probably are listening to this discussion, though the message they'll hear loudest is "Cancelling my subscription, switching to [rift, StarWars, LotR].
