I met my wife at a Star Trek convention. She was study abroad from France and spoke little English, and I didn’t know a lick of French. So, for the first few months of our relationship, we communicated by speaking Klingon.

Okay I’m not even a Star Trek fan but that’s beautiful.

I just returned from Pax East (hence the slow-down in daily Tumblr posts…need to figure out how to pre-set those before Origins). And every time I attend a convention I invariable am asked “How do I know if I’m a game designer?”

And every time I hear that question I think of a similar question I…

Survey of /r/mensrights turns up pretty much exactly what you’d expect.

White, male, 17-20 years-old, and disconnected from reality.

This is a bit scary. I mean really…. are you really that out of touch with reality?

Opinions?

I have an issue that has recently come up. Here is the back story. 

When I started college again, I joined an engineering organization. I was going to join ACM,(Association of Computer Machinery ie Computer Engineering and Computer Science), but the line was pretty long to sign up.

There was another group that was also recruiting, which was ACM-W. It is different organization than ACM but with same focus except that it has the added mission of getting more women engineers into the field. The Vice-President convinced me to join (and honestly I like smaller organizations vs huge ones which ACM is), and I have been an active member since then. 

Unfortunately ACM-W suffers from the same issues as all engineering communities  the majority of the membership being guys. 

Fastfoward to last week. It is time for elections, and the guys nominated me for President. Of course I promptly turned it down because having the Primary leadership be a man and the organizations main focus is recruiting women engineers sends a horrible message. (Honestly I’m surprised that they nominated me, did they not think that that is a HORRIBLE FUCKING IDEA.)

But of course they nominated me for ever other position, which I did not turn down. ( Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary) I planned on dropping out of running for Treasurer, and Secretary, but stay on for VP because I want it. I’m not sure if it is a good idea to run for VP for a women’s organization though. I feel any leadership position that has a guy in it sends the wrong message to the target group.

The President does want me to be in an officer position so they can point to me to show that guys are welcome in the organization. ( Again though 2/3rds of membership is guys so….yeah….) Plus I am an active member, and I think they want someone who is genuinely active to be in the leadership.

The opinions I’m asking for is should I stay in the race and go for the VP slot (which I do want) or should I take one of the other officer positions, or should I say no thanks and just remain in the general membership.

Thanks for letting me know your thoughts.
