Wow, first off, I just want to say that so many of you need to learn how to spell, especially considering the fact that a large portion of gamers prefer magic-user classes. If you can't spell, then anything you cast just won't work, even if it is spoken rather than written, because then you have to be thinking about the actual form of the words. This even goes for programming and game design. If your text is written badly, then your code is probably full of errors. If available, at least run spell-checking when you're finished. Granted, I know that spell-checking is not available here, but on many forums that I've been on, it goes unused, despite being sorely needed in many cases.
Now, onto the main topic. Some of what the lead post says is somewhat valid and just because the majority of gamers are young males does not excuse the attitudes inherent in such gaming material. The same can be said for a large portion of pop culture items, such as comic books, action movies, music. The biases are sometimes reversed in some genres, such as romantic comedies or pop music, but this is rare. I do see the points made by some on this forum about the nature of this game being more about technology versus a biological threat. As far as the point made in the lead post about the Nydus Canal, I think that what was puzzling to the Terran scientists was actually the fact that it could be completely traversed, which has no correlation to a human vagina. Also, it probably should be more correctly referred to as resembling a vulva, not a vagina, which is also a part on a flower, as well as a mamallian female. This also brings up the point that there are many mamallian creatures which pose a definite threat to other creatures and also many insect hive-based creatures are typically ruled by a matriarchal head. Does that mean that the Supreme Creative Force, whatever that may be, must be sexist. No, merely that there are many patterns or systems of all kinds throughout reality, fictional or otherwise. The fact that this game focuses on the threat that it does might indicate a bias, but does not necessarily do so.
Comments questioning why the author of the lead post included material evidence from Warcraft miss the point that Warcraft was produced by the same company as Starcraft.
I do think that game companies should not focus solely on one demographic, regardless of how much disposable income that demographic has. That practice is simply lazy. There is a market for games catering to other demographics giving a particular opening to independent developers seeking to enter the business. I think Stardock is doing an admirable job of including material that can appeal to audiences across the board. That is not meant as a plug, merely an observation of their catalog.
