MMORPG.com Poster in Washington Post

Posted Mar 11, 2006 by Dana Massey

MMORPG.com Poster in Washington Post

Washington Post reporter Jose Antonio Vargas penned an interesting feature on gay gamers today. Stemming from the recent controversy in World of WarCraft, the feature examines the cross pollination of real-life concerns into online worlds.

Vargas also brings our community into the discussion with a quotation from one of the many debates that raged on our message boards. The article appears online and in the print edition. Surfers will need to register (which is free).

Things exploded online. Lots of very heated chatter in gaming forums, gay and straight alike -- from Gaymer.org, the biggest of the online gay gaming sites, to Kotaku.com, the Wonkette for the hardcore gaming set, to Slashdot.org, the one-stop shop for geekdom, to Mmorpg.com, the go-to-site for millions of online role-playing gamers. An articulate bunch who haven't met a link they haven't sent in an e-mail, these gamers had lots to say. Word spread. Gays? In games? Gay guilds in games?

"It looks like the real world and the virtual one are growing closer together on a daily basis. Prepare to start paying your 'WoW' property taxes any day now," a gamer wisecracked on Mmorpg.com.
