Just be aware we all have flaws, and we all have skewed views. No one is completely tolerant of everything, or accepting of everything.
All of my friends and co-workers were ecstatic when Bin Laden was killed. I had recently lost a loved one, and saw where they were coming from, but my mindset had shifted towards life is precious, and even if he was a terrible terrible man, he was a person, and rejoicing someone's death just seems wrong to me.
But, I understand that my point of view is obscure and odd to others.
It goes both ways.

You gotta love the irony that it's ok for this guild to be formed but it's not ok for someone to take offense to it.
If these boys want to get together and do their boy stuff..well that's their prerogative..can't say I can see it being much fun after the first few air thrusts, go men chants and slaps on the rear but hey..whatever floats their boat.
Just remember behind every good man there is an even better woman...with a whip.
There is no reason for controversy. The politics of the Men's Rights Movement are very mainstream:
1) Equal protection of government for all.
2) Equal protection under the law for all
In any case, I have no intention of pushing politics with this guild. It is a place where equality-minded people (of both genders) can have some fun together. I am genuinely surprised at the number of people who are offended by this idea.
If you don't like it ... don't join?
Mer, you and I have run instances together in the past. Was I ever mean spirited or negative?
I hope to make a place where men (and women who are compassionate towards men) can come together and have fun. It will be a safe space for men, boys, and fathers. It will be a place where cruel jokes, hurtful comments, and gender based abuse will not occur.
WOW is a game. People come here for fun. Why is it so bad that men, boys, and fathers can have just a few hours of respite from social criticism and hostility of our gender?

It was a joke... God you people have no sense of humor once so ever... Lighten the heck up. Seriously. Don't complain about something that is NOT an issue. Like I said, leave the kids alone, let them do what they want. When they start acting retarded THEN complain about it, report them, burn them at the stake, w/e. This is retarded nonsense...
