I know I shouldn't say this, but I almost hope this happens. I think Shuman is the HJ this weekend... That would be epic.

I'm reading Chapin's GP Baltimore report, and he starts going off on a tangent after the actual report. It's something about all these (3) female players making top 8s at GPs in the last 4 month. Needless to say Chapin gets a little dramatic.

Quote:
I am so #@!%ing proud of Jackie, Mary, and Melissa, I want to cry. When I am seventy, I am going to be telling my grandkids about this exact four-month stretch. This is not an exaggeration. These three women made three times the number of GP Top 8s than were made in the previous 15 years! Women are outperforming men, percentage-wise, for the first time ever! This is the beginnings of our Billie Jean King, our Jackie Robinson. It may not be long before the first woman Top 8s a Pro Tour. We are watching history happening right now, and just as with Billie Jean King and Jackie Robinson, there are going to be people hating on those pushing for progress.
One of the problems is the language used at magic tournaments.

Quote:
For instance, sometimes players don't realize when the language they are using is further perpetuating the underlying sexism of the culture. One of the worst examples of this is the use of "rape" slang. The use of rape terminology as slang for dominating someone hurts the effort to break down the barrier—and not because women are the only rape victims (in fact, at least 10-20 percent of rape victims are men). The problem is that it further perpetuates a language that takes the worst of human behavior and uses it to describe something "good."
This is where it got me. He has to be making up these numbers. I thought the % of men getting raped is fairly low, closer to 1%-2%. Who goes around targeting men? Guys can be deceptively strong. Most probably fight back a lot more. I'm guessing a higher % carry concealed weapons. And who really wants to rape guys when there are women around.

And then it dawned on me. PRISON. When you're surrounded by only men, shit happens. Dude served time. 10%-20% probably isn't far off. Poor guy.

Encyclopedia Brown cracked up for about a minute after solving that mystery.
