Copy of a post to the guild's FB page

"Why you do not 'rape' a boss (and why players do not 'rape' NPCs) in WoW …"
An example of rape-culture alive and well in our guild.

My earlier thoughts about WoW guild rules:
"New/old WoW server and a new guild to try out with a new character:"

I am reconsidering rejoining this guild.

ETA: I realised something today. From having to explain MS to doctors and non-MS-specialists SO many times, my default 'hat' is my "try to explain" 'hat' and many boys/men feel that a woman (or anyone to be honest!) trying to explain *anything* to them is that person being aggressive.

I wish I could change my default hat but I was born with it. I can still remember trying to explain (at the age of three or four) that, "If you don't stop crying I will give you something to cry for!" did not make sense because, if they did, I would just cry more!
