This thread on RT was so...um...does English have an apropos
A couple observations...
1) you ended up in the top 5 "hottest influential women in
gaming". Congrats? (two 8/10 and three 7/10 rankings, which
could net you a "tied for second", if you wanted the bragging rights)
2) there's an odd level of irony, given your activism/interests
in "women in gaming" and "women gamers" that they would choose to
rank influential women in gaming on appearance. My wild guess
would be that the author of the original post(s) wouldn't rank
all that high on a list of "hottest
3) nobody ranked over 8/10, though some of their movie
selections did. Sounds like they're better off in a dark room
with a TV & DVD player than they would be actually relating to women.
people are so weird. and it's no wonder that so many women have
self-image problems, no thanks to folks like this.
