Grumble grumble...

Today, the internet made me feel like a sexist.

I really don't think I'm sexist.

That is all.

I have so much to say about the " conversation" on BGG today, but not the brain power to sort it all out or the time at the keyboard to relay it.

For now I'll simply say there was some validity to what the OP had to say, but I think it speaks more to the problematic society we live in and I don't think you are a sexist. (And I would totally tell you if I thought you were, even if I am your sister and I love you.)

I wrote a really good comment last night on my phone, but (oddly) Android's support for Blogger sucks and it wiped out the comment when it made me log in to post it. So here is the short, probably less articulate version.

I think Rycon had a valid point, though I think he made a poor choice with the word "racy." "Sexualized" would have made more sense and possibly gotten the argument further. I'm sorry he deleted his comments, as I thought they had merit.

Your game is far from the offensive end of the spectrum, but I see where he was coming from. This has more to do with an overly sexualized, and sexist, society than it does with where you, as the creator, are on the spectrum.

I know what I typed last night was better, but I can't for the life of me remember what it was. I hope that made sense.

To sum up: I don't think you're a sexist. And I would totally tell you if I thought you were, even if I am your sister. (maybe because I am your sister.)

No! No! They clearly meant to say "sexiest" and had an autocorrect issue.
