I actually find the ridicule on this topic encouraging. If I remember Sailfish, you also defended the use of ads that exploit women's bodies in D&DH, did you not? It is good to know that our difference of opinion is consistent.
I have no shame in admitting that I have an emotional attachment to the game that I kill and I am careful to protect their dignity, even in death. I think the fact that you and others find that funny says more about you than it does about me.
Ridicule, encouraging? I can't begin to fathom in what manner based on your post.
The shame is one person can express thier view, but if the world (or the minority) doesn't agree with them (even though its "just a gripe") it become a character flaw in the other??? I don't know whats more shocking, the fact that this affected you, the fact that you apparently remember all the times I disagreed with you, the fact that you don't realize not everyone is like you, or the fact I feel I owe you any sort of explanation.
I will defend any woman's right to use her body or brain, or whatever assets she has until the end of the earth. Sadly many individuals feel they speak for women, and know whats 'right' (or is it righteous?) for them, where their place should and should not be in society, and how they should conduct themselves. And call out (in this case a publication) a magazine because "they" don't agree with what their beliefs.
We should all just be thankful for DDH to allow us to have this forum to express our views. In the future when you post and I disagree with your view I will consider your feelings before I type. But certainly I will not ever give up my right to express my disagreement, nor my inability to take life so seriously. And I think THAT says alot about me.
