Tired of misogynistic trash talk during World of Warcraft game play? Zing ‘em with this! A feministing add-on for WoW called “DunnMe.”
(Click on images below for larger versions)
Using the /dunn1 slash command, WoW users can quickly respond to trash talk in feminist-speak. Users can retort with “A woman needs a man like a murloc needs a goblin turbo trike ___(insert name of offender here),” a quote by Irina Dunn made famous by Gloria Steinem.
To install: Unzip DunnMe.zip. You’ll have a folder named DunnMe. Move the DunnMe folder to your World of Warcraft Addon folder. The folder is, by default, in C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\Interface\Addons for a PC. For a Mac, the default is ~/Applications/World of Warcraft/Interface/Addons.
Load up your World of Warcraft client, log in with your normal username and password, and get to your server screen. On this screen, there’s an important button in the bottom left corner with the text “AddOns”. Click this button. On this screen, make sure the DunnMe add on is clicked to use.
To use in-game, simply type the slash command /dunn1 to feminist in WoW!
