Bestatte, reinforcing gneder stereotypes doesn't encourage sexist behaviour. How many times can I go over this? And also, your personal ethics weren't 'made up' on the spot, they come from somewhere. Judeo-Christian ethics are what drive North American society, and if you claim that your own ethical base has absolutely nothing to do with them, I'm going to point and laugh. I am a STAUNCH atheist, and I still accept the fact that my beliefs are based on Judeo-Christian ethics because it's what I was taught while growing up.
There are obvious difference between the genders, but the mud isn't interested in correcting all of them. You're sort of putting words into my mouth here, and building stupid strawmen. Trying to force me to argue about women using 'the thrusting motion' is ridiculous.
All of the little differences between gender cannot be accounted for, and frankly, nobody wants to completely equal them out. What I'm talking about here is a very specific behaviour which can easily be stopped by NOT DOING IT. The game HAS to function on these sort of artifical impositions on our behaviour, because completely forgetting our RL value system is impossible. We just have to watch for ways in which said value system impacts the game negatively, and then nip it in the bud.
If someone is sleeping around, don't harp on them about it because it's not a bad thing in game. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD HOW DIFFICULT IS THAT?! Puritan attitudes about sex, specificalyl with regards to women, shouldn't exist on armag. It's pretty fucking blatantly stated in the game documentation. If you disagree, and would like to openly encourage a male-dominant mud... uh, I'll first off be confused, but alright.
If every f-me PC on the mud vanished tomorrow, we would still deal with the attitudes I am talking about. If every musclebound he-man vanished, we would still deal with the attitudes I am talking about. They might tend to be obvious TARGETS for the behaviour I'm decrying, but not the only ones. The double standard of praise for men who get laid, and slander for women who get laid is what I am talking about here.
Hate f-me pcs all you want, but don't use their behaviour as an excuse for poor roleplay. Just because a character acts in a way that might get her called a slut RL doesn't mean that you should react in game the same way. As much as unrealistic characters in the mud might harm the game world, inappropriate responses to them are just as bad, if not worse.
No, men and women are not 'exactly equal' on armag. They're obviously quite different in a number of ways, but some of those ways can be reconciled. In my opinion, and apparently the mud's opinion, they SHOULD. Women should not be punished for having sex while men are praised for it. That simple.
-Giving up soon.
