It Had to Happen: The Blogosphere Subject to Diversity-Mongering

Snark and links from SondraK.

Graphic Stupidity Warning: Contains a blind link to Arianna Huffington.

For the love of everything holy-- sure, near-perfect diversity would be nice, but blogging is not a job (unfortunately... if it were, I'd already be competing with that pederast Hannoran for a VP slot).

There are zero entry barriers. Anyone can blog. Anyone can get big (well, admittedly, that's sort of tough, but there's no glass ceiling or anything; it's a function of how much time you have to waste on this nonsense, how long you've been blogging, and, well, how interesting you are).

I have to admit, I am considering doing my part to help the diversity-thingee, and I'm thinking about bringing in an all-star female team of guest bloggers to blog here for a week. Seven of them, I think-- mainly because I still have masturbatory fantasies about BJ and the Seven Lady Truckers, and I think it would be cool to play the role of Greg Evigan, drifting in and out to help the guest-blogging ladies shut down an interstate white-slavery ring and stuff.

But be that as it may-- what's next? A campaign to insure that Dungeons & Dragons games are not only "balanced" in terms of characters (fighter, mage, cleric, thief) but also in terms of having enough women and minority players?

It's hard to get women to play D&D. Believe me, I've tried. Plus, they're not any damn good at it. They just want to spend all day at the Armorer's and Magic Shoppe, shopping and looking for bargains. You just can't get to the dungeon without six hours of looking for the perfect-cute sexy-but-not-slutty pair of Boots of Levitation.
