As Others See Us

Noted in the newspaper over breakfast Saturday morning: this story from the Seattle P-I reporting on Norwescon. The online version doesn't seem to include the photo of a couple of people in costume playing Texas Hold-Em in the game area. (There's been a hold-em tournament running over the weekend, with the prize being a membership to next year's convention.) But the online version has a comment that claims that at least a couple of years ago men outnumbered women 200-1, which is pretty silly (1-1 would be probably pretty accurate), but was also clearly written by someone with little knowledge or understanding of the scene.
