You know, if you even think of commenting with, “Why would I want to do that?” as a joke, don’t. Just don’t. If you’re not a jerk, then feel free to read on. I know in the past, in answer to the question “How do I get women to game with me?” I’ve given the… Read More Geek Girls Rule! #341 – So You Want to Game with Women, Trans People and POC*…
