Uh. Okay. This reads like some 16 year old white girl from North Platte trying to sound like one of the dope dealers in The Wire. Ish, bish?

I'm old. Get off my lawn.

But glad you're enjoying yourself. Just not on my lawn.

Just a serious case of mismatching the audience and the message.

I would think this should be in the W&G forum.

Rookie mistake, guys. Someone has to quote the OP so we all know what we're making fun of once it's deleted.

The [Boy-Crazy] Girl’s Guide to Gaming Conventions


Gamers are fine. Not alright, not okay. They’re hawt. The best part is that they don’t know- okay, some do and some don’t. Anyway, I kind of frustrate myself because I don’t at all want to imply that all lady gamers want the D. I just happen to be a gamer that is a boy-crazy chick. One trait does not require the other, but I wanted to shout out the girls who share my plight. Yo, girl, what up. Here’s how to hunt at a gaming con.

DON’T OVERLOAD YOUR SENSES!

You gotta come in with at least a loose plan. Some guys are gonna get in your peripheral and jack your ish up, but you gotta keep moving. Check in, register, do whatever you gotta do, girl. These dudes are here all weekend, just like you. If they’re not staying the whole time, they suck and they aren’t down to ride anyway. Scope out your surroundings a little. Where the hell is the open gaming room and where is the bazaar from that? Don’t forget that you’re ultimately there for games and not dudes. So, sign up for your ish, bish!

PEACOCK!

Work it. Strut, strut, strut! Lady attendance at cons is getting higher, which is rad, but the gaming world is still overrun with a bunch of dudes. Some women I’ve talked to feel marginalized and often downplay sexuality because they don’t want to be over sexualized by some fool that doesn’t take them seriously. Eff that noise, son. I’m gonna peacock all day long, because that’s just what I like to do. My celebration of my vag doesn’t mean you can discredit my gaming skills. But I don’t have to tell you, I’ll just show you when we do it on the table. So, buck up and flaunt or don’t flaunt whatever the hell you want, girls.

TRY ANYTHING ONCE

I like to try things thrice, but I’m crazy. Jump into hella games, do some tourneys, go larp! Try anything and everything you can. That’s just so obvi at a con but if you’re boy-crazy like me, it’s easy to get side-tracked… which brings me to my next point:

DON’T BE A STALKER

You spot the kyutest dood evah. Come on, it’s that messy bed head, the fitted hoodie, the blank stare… *swoon* BUT STAHP IT! Don’t jump into games just because Blank Face is there… unless it’s a really good game… and the seat right next to him is open. It’s chill if that’s the intro point, okay? But don’t friggin’ follow that dude everywhere and don’t skip your tourney just to follow him over to foam sword battles.

BUT DO FOLLOW THROUGH

If you’re gonna look at a dude, look at him and smile when he turns to look back at you. Don’t friggin’ look away all crazy and then circle the area to catch eyes again. If you’re gonna send eye signals, you gotta follow through with the decision. Otherwise, you just look like you’re a weirdo. I guess we all are at cons, but still- FOLLOW THROUGH! A lot of these dudes have no clue when you’re interested, so playing those silly looking games is just confusing to both of you. Smile at a dude, hair flip, then get it, girl!

BE AWARE OF YOUR SURROUNDINGS

Keep it PG around the kids. I mean, come on, duh. Don’t be interrupting gameplay, either.

PARTY ALL NIGHT!

Go to the late night sessions. Then there aren’t really any kids. But there are DUDES! Dudes that are super geeks but are down to party. Love it!

STAY FED AND HYDRATED

No one likes you when you’re hangry. YOU don’t like anyone when you’re hangry. Plus you probably won’t be doing well at anything. So, don’t forget to eat/drink, fools. It’s super easy to forget, but don’t forget snack tyme, yo!

Let’s end it with a cliché: HAVE FUN! Seriously, girl, flirt all day and night if you want to, but make sure you’re always having a blast. Keep going back to cons and you can make lasting friendships with a lot of people. Plus, hello? GAMING CON! Gaming all night, all day!

Yaaaaassssss!
No need to have a hissy fit.

It was this blog entry. To be fair, there was nothing inherently wrong with it. It was just seriously out of place for the RSP audience.

She probably should have added it to her previous thread where she asked about dating at Con's, since that thread seems like the precursor to her writing this "guide".

Why do you think it was out of place?

If it were posted anywhere else on the site I suspect it would have been moved to RSP by now.

Because it's aimed at an audience of young, single girls (and primarily a niche of those who would self-identify as 'boy-crazy'). The RSP audience is about as far from that as you can get.

I don't know, if BJ isn't boy-crazy I don't know who is.

Oh I beg to differ... there was so MUCH inherently wrong with it... I am not even going to bother trying to list it all... Yo!

You all are coming off as being intolerant of different voices. Why don't you just ignore it and let the minority who it does appeal to dabble in "your" forum?

No one made her go away. If not endorsing a post that makes one's head explode (and not in the good way) is being intolerant then this should just be called the I forum and we can do away with the other initials.
