One of the biggest online MMORPGs is demanding that any women who play its "King of the World" game must prove that they are what they say.
Aurora Technology, has frozen accounts of male players who have elected to play as female characters and is now insisting that any female players send in pictures of themselves to prove it.
Kotatu wonders if this is going to work without questioning how it is possible to have such sexually retarded rules. If the game makers made the gender rule apply to everyone then it would be silly but would not be sexist. Clearly they have not thought the role playing element of their game through.
It might be some Aurora Technology manager has had an online relationship with someone who he thought was a woman but turned out to be a man.
