Actually, this post could be about gender and Eve, but it’s not. Well except it is. It’s really about the name of this blog. I know that Numtini’s corner isn’t the most exciting thing ever, but I really couldn’t come up with anything else at the time.
Well, I can’t remember which comms I was on, but I got “it” again, and what’s really fascinating to me is that “it” is not just an exclamation of surprise, but the phrasing is almost always identical. The only difference is whether it’s Oh My Fucking God or Holy Shit. Other than that, it’s always the same “OMFG, You’re a chick?!” It was the same when I was in NBSI Academy x years ago and it’s the same now. The only times I haven’t gotten that reaction on teamspeak or vent were Women Gamers of Eve and The Hellcats. Both of which were limited to women.
So good name? Bad name? Playing too much on being a woman?
