Jackie Lee’s follow-up to Womanhood: It’s Not A Draft Archetype.
All right, you got me.
This is my take on the “women in Magic” issue.
I’ve gone a decent while without writing such an article on StarCityGames.com, staying in the generally safe realm of theory and tournament reports. Sure, I occasionally throw in a side comment about some weird or funny remark I get about my gender, but it’s not a huge deal. In fact, it’s pretty representative of my experiences playing Magic. However because many people have recently asked, I feel the need to clarify what this actually means to me.
I wrotethis articlenearly a year ago, saying that as women Magic players, all we want is to be treated the same. But we’re not. Even in 2012, we’re not. Everything we do, everything we accomplish, must always, somehow, be weighed against the measure, “But didn’t this happen just because we’re women?”
Let me guess: you’re either interested to hear my take on it, or really tired and annoyed of the whole thing. After all, what is this, the fifteenth article written on the topic? Do we really need one more? Can one more article hope to change the world?
I think we do. And I know it can.
