A guild for women in Black Desert Online.

 

An intersectional feminist guild in Black Desert Online on the NA server Orwen and the EU server Alustin.

 

The goal of our guild is to create a safe and accepting culture for all our members so we may relax and enjoy the world of Black Desert Online.

 

We want a guild where all members are respectful and respected and so are able to form closer bonds of cooperation and friendship. We want our members to be referred to by their preferred pronouns without the need for any explanation or struggle. We want a place for our trans* members to be themselves including working on their voice and expression without judgement. We want to feel comfortable enough in this safe space to give each other the benefit of the doubt that if any of us should slip up, (we are all human) it was not anyone's intention to offend or hurt, and so rather than respond with anger or defensiveness, we will all strive to be patient and help each other to better understanding. With these goals in mind, we have the following list of requirements for our members:

 

-Our members have to be feminists.

-Our members have to be 18 years old or older.

-Our members have to identify as females (cis, trans, fluid, flux, demifem, non-binary, genderqueer) or agender (neutrois, intergender or unidentified). Exceptions for male identifying persons can be made on a case by case basis for people in the gbt+ community.

-We don’t care what sexuality you have, or what gender you were assigned at birth, however, we do ask that you be aware of the power structures between genders, sexuality, race, and disabilities and that there are normative structures that separate people. Also, you need to agree that this sucks.

-Our members must install and use Discord voice program (mic is not required).

-Our members must agree to keep the guild name and guild member’s names secret. So, on forums, social media, etc. please do not post anything (screenshot etc) that exposes our guild name or family names / character names of any of our members (including yourself) if you have publicly posted anywhere that you are in the “feminist guild”. In game, please make no reference to us being the feminist guild, etc..

-Our members can be any play style PvP, PvE, ADD, Hardcore, Casual, etc.

 

-This guild does not accept drama. We are not your mothers here to take care of you. If you stir up drama and act like a brat or an arsehat you are out.

 

If you are interested in joining or want to learn more, PM myself @Alpha and we will reply as soon as we are able. See you in-game =D

 

In PM, please include which region you want to join, and a little about yourself or why you are interested in joining our guild and where you heard about us. If you wish to expedite your invite process, also include a link to your FB. We have a small interview process that takes place on Discord.

As a girl, playing in a guild full of girls sounds like a nightmare. But good luck to you. :)

we always had around 1/4 - 1/6 girls in our guild, alot of girls are a good thing though, trust me on that ^^ the different genders bring different voices, laughs, humour etc. basicly a different mindset, wich is great in a social guild.

Also this topic is gold to watch, so free bump i guess :P

I'm really glad this thread is staying active. We know exactly the kind of folks we are looking for and we aren't worried about people who "don't understand" As I said before, the name is not public, but you can feel free to speculate. It's very amusing to see people spend so much time and effort to talk about something they "aren't interested in" or don't understand...

Its nice that you're for trans females too and all but I'm gonna say no

The "gaming" community is notoriously sexist and just bringing more attention to your gender will just cause drama and unnecessary attention, and it's pretty much never about people wanting to date/fuck you, contrary to popular belief.

Just find a guild that has people you like, whether that means mostly female or not. I guarantee you the guild won't go well for your sanity if you bring that much attention to gender.

We're not trying to bring attention, just to play with our peers in a relaxed environment.

so i guess you really try to get this going as a girl yourself. i hope you are up for the outside drama you WILL get. and i hope your recruitment will go well then, but i also have my doubts about that.

To anyone that does not identify strictly as male, if you have been gaming for years and have never once felt the discomfort of inappropriate comments and attention from people you just wanted to play a game with, we are very happy for you. If you have never been stalked by a fellow gamer, we are happy for you. If you have never been blamed for making your stalker stalk you, we are happy for you. If you have never had to deal with harassment based on your gender, we are happy for you. If you have never had to second guess your behavior for fear that the people you were playing with might “take it the wrong way”, we are happy for you. If you have never had to deal with the backhanded “compliment” of “You aren’t like other girls, you are better/smarter/cooler than ‘normal’ girls” or “That was really good, for a girl”, we are happy for you. If you have never been misconstrued as being flirtatious or manipulative when you were just being your nice and carefree self, we are happy for you. If you have never held your tongue for fear of being labeled a “b*tch” or “crazy feminist”, we are happy for you. If you have never had someone assume you will do poorly at something simply because you are not the same gender as them, we are happy for you. Truly, you have been very lucky in your gaming career and we are happy that you can be relaxed and comfortably play with anyone you come across. Still, you are welcome to play with us and join our guild, and we understand if you don't feel the need or desire to do so. For all the rest, we are here for you. We are a safe place where you are welcome.

Fair enough, but isn't labeling your guild "w/e grllls" allow everyone to identify you, and the possibility of "being stalked" or getting commented on is higher? since we all know you come from said guild/clan ...?

And the last bit of your post "we are a safe place" ... wow ..
