Good for them, at least, in keeping you around, since you met the spirit of the rule.
Some people can't deal, and I'm gonna guess she saw you as a fraud and liar and an abuser of her trust or some crazy "dramatic" thing like that... apparently drama is not confined to the 20-year-olds.A lot of people REALLY altered how they interacted with me though. Most notably - There was a ~40 year old woman (also an officer in the guild) with a thick German accent. She had always been very sweet to me for the 8 months. She helped me out a lot, and always talked to me. When she found out, she went ballistic and demanded that I be removed from the guild. When I wasn't, she started being absurdly mean to me... Would regularly call me a 'cunt' in guild chat for no reason. It was strange.
Pretty funny. I've had similar experiences when I've flipped around my social identity like that.Conversely, there were people that had NEVER spoken to me for 8 months, who suddenly were regularly chatting me up. It was a strange shift.
I have some girlfriends who played MMOs like WoW, and the treatment of women by male players has been studied before... it wasn't uncommon for them to have at least one male character they would play, just to get some relief from pursuit by young males.
I had one guy get pretty hot when I mentioned on occasion I'd play first-person shooters (although it's not my favorite genre).
So have people had gender experiences on this forum, where they were treated notably different, or has everything pretty much stayed as-is? (Aside from who is hitting on who?)
