NYTimes.com - Game Theory- Making Room for the Women.
Unfortunately this rise in so-called casual play has upset some of those who see themselves as guardians of the true flame. There’s been a definite backlash against the idea that women are entering the hallowed citadel, dropping in a few scatter cushions and ending all the fun. Particular ire is reserved for anyone who dares to point out that female characters in games are often unsupported in the bra region for no apparent reason; given boring, bland supporting roles; and totally absent.

no No NO!!!! JUST when you think MEN can have SOMETHING for themselves.... here comes the hairy-legged feminatzis lesbian brigade to DUMP ALL OVER anything a man can possibly enjoy! WILL SOMEONE PLEASE tell me what-the-HELL happened to men being MEN DAMMIT! If I want a goddamn game with hot chicks with huge jugs and chainsaws and shotguns and midgets and farm animals, it's my fucking PEROGATIVE!

*Pounding on the table* Gentlemen! Do we WANT to play some kind of namby-pamby girls game like 'Super Tampon Simulator with Flowers and Ponies' HELL NO!!! I want FEET of BLOOD, enough violence to make Satan say, "OH SHIT!" Enough naked female flesh to make Larry Flint say, "Oh the HUMANITY".

I will GLADLY accept the title of 'Knuckle Dragging Neanderthal' as long as I have a piece of ass in one hand and a shotgun in the other! HELL, WHO SAID WOMEN COULD COME OUT OF THE KITCHEN ANYWAY?!?! Certainly NOT ME and if you piss while standing (or falling off the side of someone porch like this past Christmas for myself) then CERTAINLY NOT YOU REAL MEN EITHER!

CAN I GET AN AMEN?!?!?

*Jumps off my soapbox and yells at my woman, "MAKE ME A SAMMICH!!"
