I've got to watch what I put in here.

On a personal level I know 3 friends who have horrible anorexia problems. I have no intention of doing anything to promote this sort of behavior. 20% mortality from a disease that is totally unnecessary makes me sick just to think about it. In our society being woman is too great a buden for some younge people. Far be it from me to add to that.

I do wish to acknowledge that being a woman is a much different experience that being a guy which I think was the point of Rivers post and my tip to it. That's all. I never intended to imply that it's feminine to obsess about food. Although if I were forced to believe that being 30 pounds underweight in a society where 30 percent of the population is obese is a good thing I'm not sure I wouldn't crack.

Ok, well I understood the jesting of the commentary on the food subject. I just wanted to point out that it had some drawbacks to roleplaying it out. I wasn't trying to bash anybody. icon_biggrin.gif

Remember... I love everyone. emot-heartbeat.gif

I played with the female Coral Reef back before the wipe. I must say I was stunned when I found out she was a he. He did and outstanding job of portraying a woman in my estimations. The proof of that being I related to him as a woman, and said things to him that made me very embarrassed when I found out he was in fact a male.

As for clothing, there are some outfits I just won’t wear no matter what benefit they offer. They are just too skanky. I don’t get hit on by anybody really. As for flirting, I do it a lot, but nobody take it seriously. My character does drink a lot and is kind of a timid tomboy. While I would follow Corsan Firebrand to the gates of hell, we both know nothing is going on. Not that I wouldn’t mind finding a cute little elf guy to settle down with, it just doesn’t seem to be in the cards.

I think I know what outfits you mean. And I must admit the guy in me likes "skanky"

Have you told Corsan how you feel about him?

Another reason why I like playing a woman sometimes is that it's a bigger strech of my role playing ability to portray a girl than a guy. Sort of like I find my Fender Stratocaster harder to play than my Gibson SG. It's more fun when I have to work harder on the guitar sometimes.


Jeez.do you shit $'?

This thread is really fun to read. Even the comments of Jil and Jon, who seem to suffer badly from their high estrogen/testosterone levels, contribute well to this interesting subject.
(A little sense of humor is always needed, to understand the posts of our J&J dream-team, therefore it would be a shame, if you get frustrated from those icon_wink.gif )

River: My remark about eathing was a joke, Thanks for the advice about role playing. It makes a lot of sense.

Joel_sil: This has been a fun thread thanks icon_smile.gif

Jon: I don't understand your post.

Jilessa: To your question, I have a good job. But I think it's more a question of being smart. I buy vintage guitars. You can find big bargins in used classic guitars. For example, I bought a 1968 Custom Telecaster for $475 Candian. It's list price is now about $3,500. I bought a 1957 Gibson ES-225 for $375 It listst now for $1290. My Gibson SG I bought for $400 I have never owned a new guitar.
