Does N*pple make this post NSFW? If So I’m Sorry – I’ve stuck a * instead of an I just in case. I might be overtly paranoid but better to be safe then earn the wrath of workplace filters.
On LK H Mode attempts the other night. Someones mod was overwriting the raid icons for the Valks - someone mentioned this – and I said on vent “ N*pple keeps disappearing”
What you call things can be a matter of who you have raided with, and what they have called the marks – and what becomes ‘socially acceptable’
Was I trying to be sexual by using that word in a raid situation, no. I did not have any motive behind the use of that word bar saying effectively. Circle kept dropping off. That I did not think what word I used when I said it made me think. ” Oh.. where did that come from?”
I’ve been in raids where the circle is called n*pple , and in raids where it is called a condom, and others where it is ‘that orange mark’ or even simply circle.
There’s ongoing debate about another word of note, and I will say that changing the developing gamer speak / culture on the use of words while gaming is not only with not using them yourselves, but also telling other people its inappropriateness, or even being aware its inappropriate.
There is no need to call it anything other than circle. All three variations have two syllables. It doesn’t make it shorter communication
So is me worrying about this being too political correct? I mean it’s not often I ever have to refer to the circle in an WOW situation, and I think it was the first time I have ever said it outloud. Circle is not too often used as a primary marker, it’s rather unpopular
I can’t even tell you what was going through my brain when searching for the right term to use. But it was the first word that came to my brain when identifying the raid Mark – have I heard it used so often that it’s become ‘normal’?
Whats the 1st thing that comes to your head?
Have I been brainwashed that its ok to think about raid icons having sexual meaning
Is n*pple actually sexual considering it could be gender neutral – but more often refered to as being part of other female ‘assets’
I think when I first heard that reference I was amused. I guess I had never looked at it in that way, and of the some of the things over the years I have heard it’s quite tame.
But I am going to double think what word I use next time if only because I think I should.
