Apparently my image was rescinded for having a naughty word or something. Moved the hosting–we’ll see if it stays up this time.
I am not an archetype.
Men and women are both guilty of labeling their fellow players–to some extent its deemed necessary in order to fulfill group roles; however, when meeting new players, take a moment… clear your head…. listen, observe, and reserve judgement. You might meet someone you like once you get past all those labels.
If I see one more “You know, one of those girls” posts, I might scream. There are no THEY. Everyone, EVERYONE has the right to individualism, not just you. K? You know why you have to fight an uphill battle some days to be recognized, to be heard, to have your existance noted in your guild/pug/raid, whatever? Because some jerk-wad has labeled you “girl, healer, hot” and written you off while he listens avidly to the pure mp5 enchanted male paladin standing right next to you.
When you label, you perpetuate the system. Simple. As. That.
