I wouldn't want gays there, but the rest of this is just sickening. Get these people out of my state.

Dude, they're not being gay AT you. It's safe to unclench your butthole, really. I promise.

Everybody should be allowed. Maybe an age limit but that should be it.

Come on USA, I thought we were past this. Didn't we have this argument with ourselves like twenty years ago?

On a related note, betting somebody's going to start a lawsuit war over this.

Lorx I'm not sure seeing this as a reflection of the US is completely accurate, but I'd rather not get any more political than that and derail the comment thread.

I view this more as condoning unacceptable behavior amongst an otherwise tight-knit community. The organizers are within their rights to exclude women or any group from the LAN party, but it is exceptionally irresponsible of them to do so. I'm sure the majority of gamers, even, find that sort of language deplorable or, at the very least, annoying. Yet the organizers are giving in to the douchebags by creating a space where they are at home.

Gamers as a whole have come a long way. But situations like these are halting our progress.

I meant it more as a jab/joke rather than a serious statement, much bigger problems would be happening if this was actually reflection of the country. Worded it badly I suppose.

Whether the exclusion is based off misplaced good intentions or not, you'd think the organizers would realize how much of an incredibly bad idea it was after receiving so much backlash.

you first :I

in general though, it's obvious that not much thought has been put into their solution. it's more a grade A logic fail then a delibirate stab at female gamers. what were they thinking...

I bet this is one of the big cities here. I'm banking on Houston, Dallas, Fort Worth, or possibly Austin. But I kinda doubt the last one. Becasue admittedly, most of the big cities in the eastern part of the state are a bunch of..... y'knows. Most of them don't even come from here, they moved here for college or something and always complain and hate on the state....pisses me off.
