    Average Modern Raiding Guild: Homoeroticism Gone or Not?

    Not to be homophobic or anything but one of the things that drove me absolutely bonkers in Vanilla WoW was the homoeroticism. "OMG I am gay for you I heals you" "In mah butt" bullcrap. Most of it was probably asinine joking around, but then there's whispers like this:

    Now that wasn't directed at me but still, one mistell away from creepiness. Both of the Vanilla end-game raiding guilds I was in had homoeroticism problems. It seemed to vanish completely during BC and the time that I raided during WOTLK. Before I come back and try to find some place to stay, I just wanted to know if this is still like it was in BC and WOTLK for me - nonexistant.

    If it makes any difference I am on Sargeras Alliance US.

    hahah omg are you serious? is that a troll post are are you actually telling the truth ??

    I have never heard of anything like that, so it might just be that you attract gay people

    I am serious - My hunter was named Schicksalien and they'd always call me Schickgaylien. -_- And other random assorted crap.

    Thanks!

    the most bothersome thing about that misstell is he misspelled zen.

    i've spent too much time on the interwebs to be bothered by anything at all.

    How sexual the atmosphere is does vary alot between guilds. At many places it is still very much alive.

    People in my both my guilds do that kinda stuff all the time. Learn to take a joke once in a while.

    i think you just need to chill the fuck out, and learn to laugh at it, instead of getting upset by something as silly as this

    A joke once in a while sure... but constantly? It got/gets damn annoying.

    thanks for the thinly veiled homophobia

    there's tens of thousands of raiding guilds find one with a social aspect you like

    Re: Average Modern Raiding Guild: Homoeroticism Gone or Not?

    Why this wasn't ignored after the first time is beyond me. *That* is the disturbing part.

    Fool me once...

    Oh... apparently you guys thought I got this whisper. Ooops. It was posted by someone else in our guild forums. When I said one MT away from creepiness I meant he COULD have done a mistell.

    It was replaced with severe homophobia, if you hadn't noticed.

    I've been in two raiding guilds, one very relaxed with lots of joking (including lots of sexual and implied homoerotic jokes) and one where no one had a sense of humor and the guild code of conduct looked a lot like the rules middle school kids are told to follow.

    If you can't take a joke, there are guilds full of others just like you, find one.

    Back in Vanilla, it used to be a paladin thing. Maybe just because their class colour is pink, who knows... but all the pallies (even one I knew IRL and were definitely not gay) would become flaming queens the moment they zoned into a raid instance. I think it just came with the territory.

    Not so prevalent in my current guild, however, since it's (a) more mixed gender and (b) a more mature playerbase (average age would have to be 25-30, compared with about 20 for my old guild).
