Danger! 12-year old girl in-sight!

Source

She wasn’t a hooligan, but she might as well have been for all the match-interrupting trouble she caused by daring to attend a free sporting event. According to yesterday’s Al-Watan newspaper, a free football match at a public stadium here was stopped in the 36th minute in order for stadium officials to order a 12-year-old girl out, because apparently the presence of a girl at a sporting event is offensive to people who don’t have better things about which to complain and get self-righteous. Before the game started, one particularly offended referee refused to start the game with the indecency of a female child attending the match. Another more rational referee dismissed his colleague’s concern and managed to get the game started. Later, however, stadium management decided to stop the game and asked the girl’s relatives to escort her out. The sporting event had been billed as a free community event, but apparently “free” and “community” only refers to half of the population — the ones who were born male.

That's really not that funny. And yes I know I must be offending a lot of people but really to get upset about something like that is down right pathetic. I mean seriously she didn't do anything indecent.

You remember the last thing I posted? Well, it appears its catching on...

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/americas/7007942.stm

Quote:
A Californian man has been charged with using his false leg to smuggle three endangered iguanas from a nature reserve in Fiji to the United States.
Prosecutors say Jereme James stole the banded iguanas while on a visit to the South Pacific island in 2002.

He is alleged to have constructed a special compartment inside his prosthetic limb to move the reptiles.

Officials began investigating Mr James after receiving a tip off that he was in possession of several of the beasts.

The Fiji Island Banded Iguana (Brachylophus fasciatus), noted for its bright green skin, is threatened with extinction and protected under an international treaty regulating trade in endangered species.

Mr James could face up to five years in prison if convicted.

Communism In China, For all of "Man" Kind!!!

The Linkage
Shanda (Nasdaq: SNDA) subsidiary Aurora Technology has frozen game accounts of male players who chose to play female in-game characters in its in-house developed MMORPG King of the World, reports 17173. Aurora stipulates that only female gamers can play female characters in the game, and it requires gamers who chose female characters to prove their biological sex with a webcam, according to the report.


Quite possible the single funniest thing in MMO History. Now you must be a women to play with a women. And Pics Mandatory!!! This is a great day!!! I mean sad...yes sad >_> for all men rights

It's funny how there's not something that says a women can't play as male characters.

As we all know too well, this world is retarded.

Though, I take it that given the title of this thread, this is something only implemented in China, correct?

Lol impossible, u can't expect every gamer to have a webcam lol, and if pictures, there'll be billion fake ones. Maybe just some rumor i think, these sites always do that don't they? I mean in perfect world online, 0.12 billion Chinese player, how many Pet summoners are male lol.

Doing this'll only make them the laughing stock of mmorpg history

It looks like a company trying to enforce their questionable ethics onto their customers. It wouldn't be the first time and certainly not the last. What does that have to do with "communism"?

I want this system to be implemented. It's time for deluded gamers to realize just how few women actually play in their games.

this has absolutely nothing 2 do with Communism

besides, China is no longer a nation of Communism except its "name", it's more of socialism now and slowly moving towards to Capitalism.

I suspect young Chinese women could make a little money on the side by appearing on those webcams. Men already outnumber women in the game-playing cohorts by 10-20%, so the demand for female stand-ins could be substantial.

I know you're just being sarcastic, but the reason why I used to use female accounts when playing (I don't MMORPG anymore) was purely aesthetic.

Oh, that, and the fact that people usually gave you stuff for free if you were a girl

I dont like to pick females characters in MMORPG. Too many dumb comments come your way if you do. >_<!

Then there's the whole getting married thing.

I think a lot of male gamers choose to be female avatars to project onto them what they've been missing in their real lives. That's why I like this idea.

Of course, not every male does so for this reason.

My main question when doing so was: If you'd have to stare for a great amount of hours at a character, what'd you rather have it? Male or female?

I like women, so I'd rather be staring at a woman than at a man
