Twisted Fate ain't got shit on me.

Welp.

Decided to join a pick up game of 4e D&D to finally put to rest my concerns about the system (which I won't get into because editions wars is tedious). The DM keeps calling me 'little lady' and never directly addressed me, which already made me want to pack up and leave, but I decided 'well never going to see this rear end in a top hat again, and rather not wait another hour for the bus home'.

So I rolled up my character - a fey pact warlock and male character. The group starts cracking homophobic jokes, and I'm just sitting there holding my dice in disbelief as one of them asked if the warlock getting hit by a hammer would be considered 'gaybashing'.

I pretty much quit right then and there.

Just curious, you're not hating on 4e for this, are you? Because this is not the fault of 4e. It's the fault of horrible people being horrible people.

Let's be fair, this isn't even "nerds being nerds". This is shitheads being shitheads.

You're right, updated.
