since when is intersex an agender identity lol

Oh, it defenetly isn't! Thanks for spotting it! That is defenetly my error. In Sweden, where I am from, the term intergender have been used with the shortform inter as a umbrellaterm for people between genders. https://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intergender Looking at the wiki it doesnt have a english version, just sends you to genderqueer. The term is also at times used about intersex people so yeah, kind of confusing heh think we'll remove it from the op. Thanks again, a lot of us been hashing that out and none of us (them) have seen that it looks wierd.

\o/ girl gamer here running a guild on Jordine! Yay!.

 

I love your inititive - I've run Guilds through LOTRO - Tera - ESO - Archeage and now BDO: Always as a LGBT / female friendly guild and encouraging diversity.

I Guess you've already met this but.. its gonna be tough. And I want to tell you that YES there are People that appreciate what you're doing and YES it is important. And YES a lot of People don't understand why and maybe never will.

 

 

I took a few screens last night to show my guildies what I get when I advertise our guild in channel. Some of them didnt believe it could be as bad as I tried to explain it was so.. I popped the guild ad up a few times and then took screens.

3 months in I can honestly say this is a daily thing - I usually get at least 1 pm from a troll every time I advertise. I don't let anyone else in the guild advertise for it by the way - I dont want anyone else subjected to this stuff. For decency's sake I won't include the ----- threats, Death threats - Abusive hate and vitriol.. Just some of the more tame stuff. I dont engage with troll ( or try y best not to) so this stuff is ONLY caused by the "LGBT/Female friendly" part of our guild advert. At the same time racist guilds and hate-inspired guilds can spam ads without consequence.

 

OP. You are important. Your guild is important. <3.

 

 

[Enclosing a few of those screens to show what the evil evil "Female / LGBT friendly" thing can result in]

@Deloria I'm very sorry you go through that. =( Most of the time we all put on a brave face about these things but sometimes it really gets to me that, in gaming, women's options are often A.) Say something you need/want to say and then face harassment or B.) Say nothing, skip the harassment but also skip the thing you needed/wanted to do, like guild recruiting. Thank goodness they moderate these forums now, without it our recruitment threads would easily be twice as long as they are. I would say, you wont believe the things that have been posted here but I think you can easily imagine even the worst comments we have received. What is harder to accept is that those people face no worse repercussion than having their posts deleted =/ and for in-game comments they seem to face even less repercussions.

 

@Airyka0 Thank you very much for pointing out our oversight! It may not show it but our OP has passed before a lot of folks to make sure we worded everything in a thoughtful and appropriate way but this mistake slipped through. Sorry for our mistake. We are working on a better way to phrase that section and will be updating as soon as we can all agree on it =D

With the risk of not getting any more new guildies ever, I been working on a slogan, or rather a good repeatable sentence that will catch the interest of everyone. I got the inspiration from hanging around in Calpheon. It is almost like this sentence is on repeat in my head. Here is my current suggestion: Our guild is a rising star in terms of investment. Would you like to hear about what our guild has to offer?
