Arguing against feminism

Not to derail here, but arguing against feminism means arguing against the idea that all people should have equal treatment and rights regardless of gender(which is the mantra of feminism) and thus very much = bigotry, lol.

Sure, De jure that is true. But then all that ever counts is De facto which it is very hard to argue that Feminism does anything like equal treatment for all. That really cuts across gender and Class too. Hell there is still a load of Feminist arguments about if a Male to Female trans is a woman or not which is hardly equal. Regardless the idea of reading a mission statement and blindly following that is foolish in the extreme. If we did that we would have to concede that the Tory party "are all in this together", or that Communism is all about "From each according to his ability, to each according to his need"; or that Christianity is all about "loving one another as Jesus loved us".

Now, im not saying these things are untrue either but there is a lot more to everything than the strap line. Feminism is just one, if powerful, group trying to make things equal. There are other options out there.

At most I receive a "lol ur sensitive". It angers me. I'm not being sensitive, I just don't see how the inclusion of bigotry that isn't stated to exist in our fantasy universe which involves dragons & humans fucking wildly in Dalaran; or the bypass of biology to produce a three-way hybrid; is in any way beneficial to creating an air of "realism".

"Realism", to me, feels as though it's become a gateway for people to live out their abhorrent personality traits through a character.
I do disagree. I think bigotry can characterize massively and, even if in some cases it could be, it isn't the projection of someone's real views. That's taking IC to OOC and you will only upset yourself.

I think they're just referring to ic bigotry with no basis.  Like idk the people who play homophobic characters because "warcraft is medieval" despite the dinosaurs flying everywhere.  I'm not saying your character is necessarily one of those, just that I've seen, saay..."no teh gay is outlawed in this tauren tribe becus they're endangered and stuff" coming from a Death knight tauren tribe leader who didn't seem to be giving any flak to the straight tauren that weren't breeding.  Or players that are adamant that characters couldn't do their gay thing without catching any flak because "oh but low population" yet they're Rping young fertile straight characters facing zero pressure to breed despite the fact they're not running off to war.

I mean I like my half orc running into ic bigotry over the halfbreed thing because that would happen, being called blackie and asked if he's from Stranglethorn...not so much.

I confess my dislike the Stormwind Whiskey Drinking Group.

I confess Guns.

I confess People who can run in full plated armour over long distances.

I confess (Not that theres many of them) People who wait for others to interact with them rather than actually trying to instigate RP.

I confess I dislike the lack of ducks occupying ponds throughout Azeroth.

Last from me for a while.

I am completely unable to RP a jolly/happy/marginally more light mooded than average characters over time. I just can't do it. I've scrapped several characters who I really enjoyed creating due to this. I can do "fun" characters, sure, but making jests(50/50 failrate, more or less) is a second nature to me. Characters that are generally in a good place, though, or feeling emotionally fulfilled or what you'd call it? No chance.

I could probably write with one as protagonist in a short story, but RPing regularly... I don't know, I can't even make that convincing enough to fool myself. It's tiresome.

I often end up not taking part in a lot of rp, because I feel like I have nothing worthwhile to contribute :') So I just stay away and stay bored.

When there is too many players talking in a big event, my mind switches off and I stop paying attention and afk.

Often I just start talking in guild chat in the middle of RP and after a few minutes of that feels really akward trying to RP again after being a silent statue for ages.

Irony is though that sometimes I do start talking in guild chat becouse people around are silent statues and I've already run out of ways to make them ICly create a conversation.

I confess that sometimes I'll make a char that I like far too much and proceed to not shut the fuck up about him or her to every poor bastard who has the misfortune of speaking to me during that period.

At times, if I end up RPing with people I don't like, I tend to do and say things ICly that I know to annoy the person in question, like if I RP with somebody who often complains OOCly about poor accents, I'll crank mine up to 11.

I find erp-related places friendlier than Rp communities in general.

Sometimes I read out segments of passing TotalRp profiles in a silly voice. Also good for when a friend is sent angry messages and you try to make them sound as ridiculous as possible. Angry PvP-related whispers swearing VENGEANCE are the best.

Another confession (I am confessing my life away).
I find tavern rp dull, so avoid the Pig and Whistle as much as possible, unless there is a event there.
