    • Anything relevant to what we do here. I’m not picky about style, as long as there’s no privileged ass-showing in the content (except to be used as examples to laugh at).

  1. Don’t know anything regarding to contributors, but there’s a game-related story which could be included.

    It originated from a post on the Bioware forums from a fan who was disgruntled at the inclusion of gay romance options in Dragon Age 2, saying that the company have “neglected their main demographic, the straight male gamer.” Boo hoo, right?

    But then the lead writer for the game responded personally, with the following:

    “And if there is any doubt why such an opinion might be met with hostility, it has to do with privilege. You can write it off as “political correctness” if you wish, but the truth is that privilege always lies with the majority. They’re so used to being catered to that they see the lack of catering as an imbalance. They don’t see anything wrong with having things set up to suit them, what’s everyone’s fuss all about? That’s the way it should be, any everyone else should be used to not getting what they want.”

    Original forum post, including the complaint and retort, here – http://social.bioware.com/forum/1/topic/304/index/6661775&lf=8

  2. Hi, I’m a few months late but I’d love to contribute. I wrote an article about a year ago about being mixed race on Stuff White People Do. RVCBard, I believe you commented on it. I’d like to share the aftermath and learning experience of that article if I may?

    • If you can find a tie-in to film, theatre, tv, comics, animation, and other cultural media, sure. But I think Macon still publishes guest posts for SWPD.

      • I was unaware those were the specific topics you were looking for but I’d love to contribute thoughts on that kind of stuff! Mostly video games & tv. Are you looking for reviewers or just opinions?
