I need some input on this here because this is sickening and I don't want to deal with it anymore.
I was leading a 10 man HM Firelands today, it was full of guild mates. We were at Shannox and we wiped, one of the Officers told everyone to shut up and stop screwing around so we could kill the boss. Everyone listened, the Mage switched specs to kite Rageface into the traps. We killed him and we moved on. All the while we were screwing around, making jokes and having fun. We got to Baleroc and I asked everyone to be quiet while I explained the boss to someone who hadn't done it on Heroic. Everyone began talking over me and screwing around so I typed into chat that since no one was listening someone else should explain the boss so that we could continue. Someone explained the boss halfassed and we pulled him and guess who got Countdown? Needless to say we all blew up, after that happened I told everyone to shut up because I was getting pissed and no one was listening. We ended up wiping two more times due to no one listening to what I had to say until my husband stepped in and told them what to do. - Next boss I told them we were going to stack for 10 stacks then spread for 7, etc. The Tank (Officer) pulled the boss BEHIND us after I told him we were taking 10 stacks first. Why is it that no one listens to females until they yell? Then if I yell everyone thinks I'm queen bitch of the world. No one cared when that guy yelled at the beginning of Shannox but when a female yells for people to listen it's the end of the world. I'm tired of being treated horribly and being put down because men have double standards. If you can yell why can't I?
After the raid ended the Guild Leader sent me a lovely whisper telling me that I'm not allowed to yell and no ones going to help me if I do. So the guy who yelled at Shannox is allowed to do it and everyone has to take it but when I get frustrated from being ignored and I yell everyone leaves and calls me names behind my back?
The Guild Leader then had the nerve to whisper my HUSBAND and complain to him grouping me with the rest of the female World of Warcraft population saying that I complain 24/7 and that's why he hates females in his guild. I don't complain anymore than anyone else does in this guild but of course when a female complains it's PMSing and when a guy complains it's "just talking."
I have been called many names due to the fact that I HAVE to yell to get anyones attention and I am just plain sick of it. Just because I have a chest or because I don't have anything between my legs or because my voice is different than a mans doesn't mean I'm any different or I should be treated any differently. If a guy can bitch.. I can too.
