I knew it was a controversial topic, but I didn’t think the way I worded things would receive that much negative attention. I was wrong.
The comments on the thread have been getting out of hand. I woke up this afternoon to find a few comments from people that would clearly erupt into an argument if I left them.
For justification, the post was supposed to be constructive tips for several female officers I either actually know struggling or for all the people who have posted threads on this subject in the guild relations forum. I understand it was poorly written and most of the tips were generic tips that weren’t necessarily gender specific, but they were, in my opinion, the main reasons I’ve seen female officers struggle.
With that said, please play nice. Constructive feedback is nice, but comments like:
“Personally, I have been under female guild leadership for most of my life, and I am sick of woman slowing down raids.”
“I am also sick of ‘girl talk’ in vent, sluggish raids because of poor direction and leadership from woman, and most of all I hate the fan-fic writing nature of woman. They will turn ANY server into an RP server because they are so emotionally tuned and connected to every little thing.”
“PS to woman everywhere. (Talk less – Play More)”
Are bound to offend people and start trouble. Opinions are one thing, but try not to set my blog afire while I’m away at work, okay?
In other news, working on a few drafts.. not sure which will end up being published first. Maybe I can play topic roulette with ‘em? Or, I could always do a silly post. Haven’t had one of those in a while.
