They are't Unicorns

So I was just thumbing through Facebook and I came across a meme asking "do girls even play D&D?" it's funny because I have been guilty of thinking that RPGs were the purview of males and I have been guilty of using the term "Unicorns" which I have to admit is more than a bit sexist. But reflecting on it I realize that at least 30% if not 50% of the gamers I know are women. Hell I met my own wife across the gaming table and she is now the Gaming Department Manager for SpoCon and probably the best GM I know. I haven't done a survey of our members but I think SpoCon attendees might be more than 50% female. So where does this perception come from? Is it something we need to fix? Ladies do you feel welcome and comfortable at the con, the table, your local shop? Tell me what you think in the comments below.
