Look. Look. I still get these weirdo WoD stans in private trying to tell me "but THIS game was good"

Read the intro fiction for nuMage and tell me how progressive it is that the game portrayed taking a female name and "sacrificing" your genitals as a villainous thing to do
I *get it.* you want to cling to the notion that the games were as progressive as advertised.

No they never fucking were. They were always using us as shields. Bring this up with me only if you want me to destroy your illusions and ruin your dreams as penance. I.e. don't. Thanks
Yes this villainous character is real. Look at the fucking phrasing too. shadownessence.org/index.php?/top…
And yes Angurboða is a female-declined name.
The thing is, you might call these "missteps" or whatever but the thing is, these are not the kind of consistent mistakes you make unless you don't actually have a solidly progressive foundation to stand on to tell you "This is a bad idea" before it goes to print.
If someone makes these "missteps" consistently *it's because they never learned the walk.* and when near every game they MADE did this shit at multiple points, they never even tried to learn. It's the simplest explanation and the ol' razor applies.
What does explain it instead is if you think of the games as being written by edgelords using other people's identities as a combination of edgelord cred for their straight white edgy crowd and as shield from criticism from when it cuts them back. And I refuse to be their shield.
Stop giving a corporate entity operated by white men your identity 2019.
And also; don't come to me in private to defend a game's honor after I've asked people not to unless you want me to fucking ruin it and you, you rude assholes.
Bonus; if you try to use this to make a point about the owod being better

I'll just stop you now

Because *I will ruin your hopes and dreams*
