That's nice to hear. Most don't.
I remember Magic Worlds a couple years ago. I was watching the guy I was seeing at the time trade with another fellow and I saw a card in his binder that I wanted. If I recall correctly, if was a foil from... I dunno, some set in the Alara block, it's not important. But any way, I said to him; "When you are finished with [name of guy I was dating], I'd like to trade for your [whatever the card was]. Here's my binder," and I sat it down on the table in front of me. He looked at me and gave me the most amused look.
"Oh? You two keep your cards seperate? How cute."
It was very disrepectful and to this day, I remember every instance of that, from every card game I've ever played. It happened many times.
It's as though we're only supposed to be into a game if our boyfriends are. Then we're not supposed to have our own cards?
I'd been playing Magic for at least five years before I'd met the guy I was dating. My mother was the one who introduced me to the game. A girl introduced me to Naruto. I picked up Pokemon and Yu-Gi-Oh myself because I liked the shows and yeah, a male introduced me to Vanguard.
You can, or at least I can, blame it all on society. It's these nasty little things that are drilled into our minds since childhood. "Girls aren't supposed to do this", or "boys are supposed to do that".
Bah, I kind of went off on a tangent, but only sort of. Sorry about that.
