And as if Aion lacks stuff to qq about. So they clarified something - big deal. Honestly that "bro"-ing does get annoying. Because if you correct them, you kind of divert the topic towards yourself even though you dont mean it. If you don't correct them after being broed 12287th times, you're kind of withholding and in a way pretending being a bro, and though it never should be about gender, somehow it becomes about it either way. Why can't people just say "thank you" instead of insisting on "thank you man" and "thank you bro". What exactly are you withholding? I don't tell everyone I talk to that I am right handed. Or that I have red hair. Or the color of my eyes. It's not withholding when the person has no need of or right to the information. Your sex or sexual orientation fall squarely into the "you don't need to know" category. I'm a cleric. I can dps or heal. I have the stats and I have run this before. I can come to discord. There. That's it. That's all that random players in this or any other game needs to know. My female nieces call each other bro. They call their friends bro. It's weird. But it's also really normal. And the problem is that some players that make a big enough deal about their sex to point out that they aren't a "bro" after some random comment like was made in this thread (or something as harmless as someone saying, "Thanks, bro") have a -reason- behind wanting the gaming population to think or know that they are a woman. It's sad that in this day and age there are still women (and men!) who think that being a female gamer is going to get you something. So if your sex doesn't matter in how you play the game and it doesn't factor into how you want to be treated as gamer, who cares if someone thinks or assumes you are caring extra bits in your trousers? Anyway.. carrying on the discussion. I have never fallen to my death in an epic wing fail. Ever. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
