For a single sentence of non-binary representation, it is almost impressive how many different distinct issues I have with how it was handled.
3. “Hermaphroditic” is ...bad, actually. It’s a slur, a medicalising term, and the passage makes a common cis error and conflates being intersex & being non-binary. They’re not the same damn thing.
Being non-binary (and/or trans) isn’t defined by our bodies, our presentation, or our genitals. This is Gender 101 stuff.
9. Assuming Jeremy means “gloriously genderfluid” above, I’ll observe that nothing in the PH passage actually says anything about Corellon’s gender (or identity) at all
11. Which, again, being non-binary and being intersex aren’t the same thing.
@Wizards_DnD needed non-binary sensitivity readers, because this passage reflects the ways that even well-meaning cis people medicalise our bodies and reduce us to aesthetics.
