atreides: A night elf druid in cat form roars. (man not caring)

Well, this is a good a place as any to lament the total failure that was my attempt to get a little Women Power in Diablo 3. Or at least some attention paid to the issue.

I started a thread in the Diablo 3 forums titled "Women Game Too". It mostly asked that Blizzard honor it's claim that the characters be all "brimming with power" by not making the women wear miniskirts or have malnourished bodies or have impractical bosoms. And also, make a couple of the male characters legitimately sexy.

It got spammed out in about 90 seconds, but then a moderator revived it. From here on out it went about 90% criticism and 10% support. Of course most of the criticism was asinine, ignorant, or of the form "Look where you are. Do you really think we care?" So I'm not linking the thread. If it's still alive, it can be searched out with relative ease.

I got a bunch of flak for small errors in logic, or wording. I was expecting most of the flak, but I was surprised how people held the quality of my writing up to a higher standard when people tried responding intelligently.

Oh well. After a very short time, the topic got derailed and now it's about 400 posts of things like 'Runescape did too have great graphics!' I can think of worse things for the topic to veer to.
Mood:: 'cynical' cynical
