I had that problem for a little while. I don't understand what is so hard about hitting one button.

Hello League of Legends Community.

Originally, I was using this space to share an upcoming Headmistress Fiora cosplay with the community. I intended it to be a fun way to show my support and enjoyment for the game.

Please look at these screenshots.

[CENTER]Attachment 572401 Attachment 572403 Attachment 572406 Attachment 572408 Attachment 572409[/CENTER]

These summoners saw my thread. And from my summoner name and the work in progress picture I had posted of me wearing my incomplete cosplay, they concluded that I was a female. These screenshots show the first ten minutes of the resulting forty minute game.

I expected this cosplay to be something fun for myself and the community. But from the response I have received- not just from this game, but from posters in my thread- it is clear that my expectations were too optimistic.

For this reason, I have decided not to show my cosplay on the GD. However, I do plan on completing it and wearing it to an upcoming LoL Tournament. To the supportive few that were looking forward to the cosplay, I sincerely apologize.

Now, I would like to talk about this case. And other cases like it. In my two years of play, I have encountered far too many similar and worse situations. This is not an isolated nor rare incident. Nor is it solely related to my cosplay picture- I have never before provided pictures on League of Legends.

Many people seem to assume that women are always "white knighted." Or that when women identify themselves as women- through a summoner name, a statement, or a picture- they are automatically "putting out" for attention.

The only special treatment I have ever received for my gender is verbal abuse and sexual harassment from individuals that incorrectly assume the aforementioned.

If an individual stands up for me... Is he "white knighting"? Or is he standing up against sexism because it is a wrong thing?

If I have a feminine summoner name or post a picture of my cosplay... Am I "putting out"? Or am I merely unashamed of my gender?

Think about it.

Thank you for reading. Please enjoy your games. And when you do, please try not to make the game worse for other people. Especially not for such a stupid reason.
I just wanted to share this with the League community. For better or worse, I felt like these words had to be said.

I actually really like both maps. I don't give it enough love.

asdf. I didn't mean to.

At least I got something to keep me awake while I do my papers.
