Remember when their used to be active female members on this forum?  I wonder why they stopped coming around?   :wowey:

I wouldn't mind having Di & Lady Crimson back. That would be two. If Gabrielle ever comes back that will be ten.  :lol:

As far as gender equality goes my boss is a woman. And she is the smartest person in any room she happens to be in. She has a BA in Physics with a specialty in Fluid Mechanics and a MS in Engineering Management. I can tell you for a fact no one ever cut here a break for being female and her intellect and personality are such that no one with any sense will take her lightly for it. How people react to you, the opportunities you get, and what you make of them has a lot more to do with what you know, how you act, and how you present yourself than the color of your skin or which chromosome pair you ended up with.

I remember when Oby himself was a 17 year old Russian girl. Ah, those were the days. Then those bastard moderators forced him to become a bloke.

 

..they have better things to do then chat with a collection of pseudointellectuals.

 

 

Please, let's not drift off into impossibilities.

Personally  I think its a little embarrassing that there no are NO active female members on this forum

 

We dont have even 2-3 ? Its something we should be trying to understand and or change....people don't seem that concerned ?

Why would we be embarassed?
It doesn't matter to me if there are females, blacks or others. I care about info and discussion i can obtain and have here.

Do you leave a store if there are no diversified clientel in it? Because normal people don't care and just make groceries.

Why? As someone said. What's the point of talking to know-it-all pseudointellectual geeks?

The second point is - how hard are females invested into certain games.to talk about them? They have better.things like talking about a new cloths collection, shoes, gossiping about their friends etc...

Its important in life to always try to get a different perspective on issues and for me a female perspective often adds balance 

 

Its not  always right but its very relevant to having robust debate...and why do we see ourselves as " know-it-all pseudointellectual geeks" ...do you see yourself as that, I dont see myself as that ?

People that I would guess to be women actually talk about games here, but other conversations don't seem to interest said people that much. So maybe their shared interest are just those games and for other things they just go elsewhere. And said individuals also seem to disappear soon after they lose interest to particular game that brought them here in first place. Same is also true for most men that come here because of games. So I would say that we are just bad when it comes to integration of new people in our society :).

No man has had sexual fantasies about how equal a woman is to him.

I have.

 

 

Tell me more.

 

As for no women here....i can't believe i am hearing this from you guys. I can't, don't even, it's the current year! It's 2016 people! We are at a role-playing forum after all. Anyone can be a women if they so wish, you sexist, misogynistic bastards, the lot of you.

No.  Bruce doesn't even understand women, which is not the problem, since we all are pretty clueless.  The problem is he thinks he does.

 

You must have missed his material on strippers and overweight girls.   :blink:

We used to. But since half this board gets passive aggressive when the word "woman" is even mentioned these days I can see why they're not here anymore.

"The hot chicks period was a weird one here though."

 

iirc thread was removed ultimately because a female Obsidian developer complained?

 

its 2016, heterosexuality is sexist after all

 

 

Pretty sure the Hot Chicks thread was nuked each time because some posters couldn't resist posting naked / semi-nudes in the thread despite multiple warnings from the mods not to post nakes / semi-nudes in the thread.

Well it was one of those odd threads that would bounce from "hey, hot girls" to discussions of different concepts of attraction and beauty depending on culture and location around the world.

 

Sometimes it was joking, sometimes it got scarily serious, sometimes it got outright pervy, and a chunk of it was just running humour that was part and parcel of the "regulars" twisted psychology.

 

I thought it was just cleaned out in part because some people pushed the limits, and Obsidian decided to tidy the boards somewhat right before a big release and they were expecting fresh people to swarm the boards (who might not understand the locals and the banter right off the bat).
