Gendered Gaming

I've tried so many times to write a smart, insightful reflection of GirlIRL's Gendered Gaming post, but I can't. So all I can say is that it's one of the best pieces of writing about Warhammer Online I've come across so far, and if you're in any way interested in gender equality in gaming you should read it. Read it. Read it! Go on.


  1. Thank you very much for the shout out. I'm pleased to hear that you enjoyed the article; it was something I had been stewing about since before launch and was finally able to express when I started my blog.

    I actually wrote the article long before I published it, but was concerned it was too controversial to post. It wasn't until the Slayer announcement came and I realized Order would have to deal with the gender limitations that we deal with on Destruction side that I decided the post could still be relevant.

  2. It needed to be said. The argument that it's lore = just as weak as the argument that the reason women aren't treated equally is because it's "tradition". I am really glad people got to read it, it needed to be said.
