    You see nothing ironic about holding a one-gender only tournament? I mean…seriously. The irony is killer. Even worse from a site who boasts about “inclusivity”.

    • Magic: The Gathering has been around since 1993 with the first tournament being held in 1994. The first female to be among the top 100 players ranked world wide happened in 2012. Today 1 in 20 competitive MTG players are female, but, according to Wizards marketing, ladies make up 36% of Magic players. Yet, Wizards has an “open for all” policy since the beginning, but it is lacking in female players. Mainly because Wizards has not been thinking of the female market.

      Wizards has been trying to get more female players interested by hiring more women in the development of the game. This non-sanctioned tournament is also trying to get female players more interested in competitive play in by holding a tournament aimed specifically for us. In order to be inclusive you can’t just say that you are open for all, you have to make efforts to make it open for all.

        Im completely for getting more non-male players into competitive magic. That being said, your last sentence is an example of circular logic. To be inclusive, you must be inclusive, so you must hold exclusive events, to promote inclusivity.

        I have no fundamental issue with a girls-only non-sanctioned tournament. I just find it a bit weird, if the goal is to promote integration into the magic community. You would agree that an all female tournament is not representative of usual tournaments. So how many of these players will feel like going to non-exclusive tournaments going forward?

        Im sure there is a more effective and creative way to accomplish getting more women in magic that does not require exclusive events.

        Good luck either way!

        • There isn’t a circular agreement what-so-ever. This is an effort to get more female players interested in competitive play by creating an
          environment that is designed specifically for us. This isn’t a new, radical idea. It has been done in the past with all female colleges, and currently with all female tournaments in eSports. There have been many that took what they gained from these female-centric organizations and applied them, and have been successful in, the male dominate institution. This is a proven method that works time and time again. What I find weird is that Wizards has an “open for all” policy with their tournaments, but their tournaments don’t represent everyone.

    This offends me as a vegan transgender atheist, who vapes and crossfits 4 times a week. And I’m also a male feminist as I identify myself as a pastafarian Apache helicopter dog mega multi combo god of hyper death and if you dont agree with me, then you’re an ignorant arrogant globaphobic sexist lesbian.
