Worst of Romance
I attended a small standard tourney last night at an LGS with my wife. We unfortunately left after the second round because of the hostilities she was experiencing because of her gender. Do you find on your end you hear much regarding the issues of non-male treatment in Magic? Do you feel it's improving?

markrosewater:

Let me use this question to say something I’ve been wanting to say.

Every time you are unkind to another Magic player, be it in a game, online or through whatever interaction, regardless of your reason, you are hurting the game, you are hurting the community, you are hurting the store you play in, you are hurting the place you gather - most of all, you are hurting other people.  

One of the reasons I love the Magic community is because of the kindness they show one another. Don’t be the person that makes Magic something ugly for someone. You love how the Magic community has opened up for you and made you feel welcome. Well, pass that along. 

Just imagine that every interaction you have with someone new is the interaction you would have wanted when you were new. A lot of people are attracted to gaming because it is somewhere they feel welcome when there are many other places they do not. Please, please, please do not take that away from people.

Be an ambassador of the game.

Be someone who makes others’ lives better rather than worse.

Be the better person.

What Is GamerGate?

It’s the Tea Party of video games. And Zoe Quinn is its Benghazi.

Okay, But What Is GamerGate Really?

GamerGate has been disingenuously framed as a grassroots campaign of gamers “concerned with the quality and integrity of video game journalism.” The campaign is, in…

I’m not sure the tagline means what they think it means. She’s “killable”? As in, “able to be killed”?

Should I review “Fifty Shades of Grey”?

I know I’m not done with Cowboy Commando (I’ll start the second half once school is out in two weeks) but I’m tempted to read and review this inexplicable bestseller that I’ve heard is more poorly written than a Harlequin book. Check out some of these amazon quotes!

"Take Stephenie Meyer’s ham-handed, awkward writing and turn down the "quality" dial about four - maybe five - notches." - GadgetChick

"This has to be the most appallingly atrocious writing I’ve ever seen in a major release." - DS from LA

"I have the opinion that you need to be able to refer to your vagina as something more erotic than ‘down there’ before you can pull off a significant hotness rating." - RiverinaRomantics

What do you guys think? Should I read and review “Fifty Shades of Grey?”
