It sparked a little fire in my blood, so, as I do when I want to discuss something with my friends, I posted it on Facebook. Alarmingly, a few of my friends were of a similar mind; learning that someone plays Magic: The Gathering, World of Warcraft, or White Wolf is an immediate turn-off. "It's the female mind - we don't like hearing that our potential life partner and father to our children is playing games at 30... Casting spells and shit ain't gonna get you groceries at Wal-Mart." The underlying idea, and what my friends actually took issue with, was the idea of someone playing games to the exclusion of their everyday lives and duties. I’m alarmed that they immediately jump to this assumption about someone who plays Magic: The Gathering with no other information. My simple plea today is this: gamers and non-gamers alike, please stop judging people based solely on the games they play."
