    So in a hypothetical RPG set in a kitchen, you'd prefer to play as the woman making the sandwich instead of the man eating it?

    playing female characters only makes sense to me if they're on a magical/support/stealth role

    if I play a martial class/something with heavy armor I always go male

    Using a bow requires shitloads of STR, though. Way more than swinging a sword, for example.

    Bruh, saying you cant be a female ingame because you're a male irl is like saying your race ingame can't be anything non-human because you're a human irl.

    Playing non human characters is fine but playing as black characters is not because its 2020 and blackface is not OK. You also can't play as chinamen BTW

    It is a fantasy game after all, so you can pretend to be white and make your dreams come true.

    "We are dealing with a culture of domination. It is a culture that thrives on the sexualized demonization of Black people. Two examples of this are Ridley Scott’s Alien, which comports with the trope of Black women as alien breeders and Predator, written by brothers Jim and John Thomas, that riffs on images of Black men as dreadlocked, violent and superhuman."
    https://theconversation.com/how-hol...tor-movies-reinforce-anti-black-racism-127088

    Remember that everything violent, animalistic and savage represents blacks. That is unless you are a racist.

    Come to think of it, I think I might be scared of women and sex, as all my female characters are low intelligence, low charisma, unarmed genociders.

    You don't even have to go that far for an example. Wizards recently came under fire because their depiction of Orcs and Drow is racist against blacks. The company promised to do better in the future, of course.

    Their own damned fault for moving away from ashen-faced Drow towards blackface ones. Even the stupid covers of the Salvatore novels were guilty of that - and were in conflict with the descriptions inside the novels.

    Alright. Let's say I concede the point. (Which I don't. You have to be a moron to conflate Drow with blacks just because the colour of their skin has the same name) What about Orcs though? Is that Wizards' fault as well?

    Tolkien orcs were supposed to be mongoloids.

    Not a porn mods user, but as far as normal porn goes, as a stright man I prefer lesbian, or solo, over hetero porn which makes me feel uncomfortable, watching some bull fuck a girl is kinda point of view of a cuck.

    Does that mean that trans people only exist because of video games?

    I mean this version of Drizzt:

    all approved by WotC. So someone was a moron to confuse that with a negro, you say?

    No opinion on Orcs. Just wanted to rant about the idiotic "artistic choice" above.
