Seriously, message boards are a public space, not a men's space, and sometimes you guys get really complacent in forgetting that there are girls who read these forums too, myself included. I can only speak for myself, but some of the posters in this thread are really creeping me the hell out. The original poster is long gone; there is literally no need to keep posting in this thread unless you're hellbent on alienating every female on these forums.
Mods, I'd really love it if this thread could be closed, and failing that, I would beg the posters in this thread to please show a little more class and leave this be.
Why are we STILL
trying to make this a gender issue? The vast majority of the comments here have literally nothing
to do with this person being a girl. I can't speak for everybody, but I want to see more of this cosplay because it's really freaking accurate and shows potential
, not because of some creepy agenda that you and others keep assuming I have. TC herself expressed interest in continuing this, and was extremely happy that I had contacted her again, going as far as to call it, and I quote, "sweet".
These assumptions are getting ridiculous, and they're way more disruptive than the small minority of odd comments in here, WHICH HAVE BEEN APOLOGIZED FOR ALREADY.
The last post in here before this was a compliment on the accuracy of the cosplay, (which is 100% on topic and kind) and had no connection whatsoever
to gender or some creepy interest. There was literally no reason for this comment, at all.
It's amazing too how every
time we've pretty much let this go, somebody has to barge in and toss accusations around and expect people to just take it. If you want this topic to fall to the bottom, stop posting in it.
I felt guilty at first, but if I'm being real here, I haven't done anything wrong other than encourage somebody who is already passionate and interested in doing something to continue doing that something with slightly too much enthusiasm. That isn't creepy, it isn't gross, it's normal for people who get excited about things they find high quality. I've done my absolute best to be sensitive about this, and now I'm getting annoyed by the extreme overreactions and presumptuous attitude that is coming to this topic. This never should have gotten this far, and it wouldn't have had it not been provoked further after the problem was already solved by itself two and a half pages ago.
Now it's getting to the point where, by attempting to fix some imaginary problem, you have clogged up an otherwise awesome topic, and the person I feel the most for here is TC, because she wasn't even remotely involved in any
of this. It's embarrassing that she might see this, not because of the comments in question, but because of the totally needless conflict they caused. I feel like she's the one that deserves the apology if she decides she wants it, not you or anybody else. Just let it go, and give us an actual chance to as well.
