Default Don't hate me... But I'm curious.

I've seen about a million "Femal 40k player" threads and every time I see one I roll my eyes and sigh.

However I was looking at a recent one and a thought occured to me;

I've never met a gay male 40k player. Like not even once. Or any other GW game for that matter. I don't live in a backwater or a small town, I know a lot of gamers, and I've been to lots of tournaments and yet still, so far as I know, never met a gay man who plays.

So has anyone ever met a gay gamer?

Sure thing. One of my best friends happens to be gay.

But I have to admit that he prefers WHFB by far... alas, since he has a painted army of eldar and has played with them a few times it should count.

I know female 40k players, gay 40k players, the only gaming lesbians I know play Pen and Paper RPGs though. But maybe someday they will succumb to the glory of tin soldiers, too.

Damn, I must be open minded ;D

On another note: How do you expect a gay player to be identified, Falstead? In general they a) look like anyone else and b) they usually do not shout "Me iz gay" all over the place.

Greetz, Trogdor

Ah, sorry Trogdor, I realize I must've sounded like an ignorant 12 year old there.

Truth be told, you don't always know. But I often get to know people I game with, talk to them ect. When you hang out with someone you do eventually figure out stuff like that. That or a lot of gamers are pretty quick to mention the fact that they have girl friends/wives.

Not just you. I know at least two gamers who are trans, and come to think of it i've met several lesbian role players.

Not sure, but I think there are at least a couple gay members of this very forum who play 40k. And at least one lesbian.

One of they guys down at the store who plays 'nids is Gay, though you'd never guess by observing him.

Also, we had a guy from our store (Michal Strange, his army is under 'cool models&#39 go to the Baltimore GT

Turns out, Scott simson is as well. He's also a damn good mech Tau player.

so what your saying is that oven cleaner can remove paint from plastic models? and after that, you take a toothbrush to your plastic model, and the paint just comes off?

My gaming group has a couple of very narrow minded people in it, so even if we did have members who were gay, it's unlikely they'd let it be known. The same goes for our local shop.

I've met a lot of open minded players online, but in RL I see a lot of what I call "peer posturing predjudice" (where people pretend to be predjudiced to impress certain of their peers, but who are probably not at heart).

What you gonna do?

Rofl,
I think the statement Only real men read the strange gazzet is a bit one sided now :P
