    Sexism against men is political, right?

    I don't recall you saying anything objectionable.

    Sexism against men is political, right?

    I can abide by that standard. Share all the statistics and facts you want on this site, but don't tell me they should inevitably lead to specific conclusions, behaviors or policies that will conveniently tar your chosen boogeymen. That's for other forums.

    Sexism against men is political, right?

    I would post the specific quote in the Are female D&D players comfier around male D&D players these days? that I believe crossed the line, but it was deleted along with my reply to it, which I think was the correct move. I just want to clarify something for the future however. Can we at least...

    My post was removed too. Let's just move on.

    Are female D&D players comfier around male D&D players these days?

    You know what, forgive me, I'm getting too political and I haven't contributed much of true interest to this thread. Perhaps we'll talk about this issue in the community section later. Let me get back on track by asking a legitimate question: World of Darkness has a general reputation for...

    Are female D&D players comfier around male D&D players these days?

    The baddies can futz around with data interpretation just as much as we can futz around with data interpretation, that's not even the point - On principle we should not make dangerous casual sweeping statements about groups of people based on tiny minorities within them. Having a double standard...

    Because no one wants to remember this. :tongue::wink:

    Are female D&D players comfier around male D&D players these days?

    Right, but my point is that at the moment they have a bizarrely mild reputation.

    Are female D&D players comfier around male D&D players these days?

    Sure, I can buy that to some extent. However, with vampires that "dissonance barrier" frankly seems paper thin. "Oh no, he's roughly grabbing parts of my body, pinning me down with his superior strength and penetrating me with his d... dental weapons! My biological functions are being brutally...

    Are female D&D players comfier around male D&D players these days?

    Good point, but isn't it odd that, on that spectrum of degrees for a lot of people (not you clearly), cannibal gnolls winding the guts out of live prisoners broken on torture wheels while the disease demon they summoned prepares to consume and eradicate their immortal souls ISN'T the ultimate...

    Are female D&D players comfier around male D&D players these days?

    That's still funny to me, the idea that we have "cozy" grimdark now, like we already had cozy mysteries*. * https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cozy_mystery

    Are female D&D players comfier around male D&D players these days?

    Depends on what you signed up for really. Not that I'd be interested, but I do find it kind of smirk-and-roll-your-eyes when people who claim they want "grimdark" games are all aboard settings and splatbooks that lovingly detail the most horrifying murder, torture, mutilation, oppression...

    Are female D&D players comfier around male D&D players these days?

    In the circles of my youth the tacit agreement was that geeks like us had an unfair reputation for sexual weirdness, so to not live up to that we collectively avoided putting sexual situations into games. Not that there were any girls around to offend, but it made us feel better about ourselves...

    Copyrights & Copirates

    We should just go back to solving the problem the way we always did! 1) Bamboozle 100 clueless money-men into investing in story projects they don't understand. Make sure they never talk to any of the veterans who long ago realized the ROI odds might as well be a roulette table. 2) Throw their...

    What medieval weaponry to authentically hunt cat-sized mosquitos?

    Aha, yes, but public domain and much easier to describe verbally!

    That Metal Thread Hasbro issues & the future of DnD

    Honestly, board games serve that purpose for my groups now.

    The Big Generation X Nostalgia Thread

    Part of the problem with this thread is it's so big and so old that I can't be sure what's already been posted... Including by me! Anyway, I hope I haven't already shared this "cathartic retro review".

    That Metal Thread Hasbro issues & the future of DnD

    That's one of the saddest lessons in life: For the most part, the people we disagree with will never face reality / realize the truth / learn their lesson / accept their fault / get their comeuppance / etc. But then again, neither will we. We're too good at making excuses and rationalizing...

    That's an impressive post @Peter Von Danzig !
