Best reaction on my new tattoo: “You’re getting playstation controller yeah? So you’ll feel more comfortable with two joy sticks. Oh, and don’t forget the silicon caps.
I’ve been thinking about the common examples of racism in fantasy role playing, particularly when it isn’t used to satirise IRL racism, but rather is an example of the same human desire to be a racist D-bag existing as a habit in fiction as well as meatspace.
Knife ears, squirrels, cabbages
"What do you call a squeaky in a sleeping in a swag? A teabag!"
Stumpies, beards, squats.
"Dwarrow are so filled with envy, everything they talk about is mine"
Shortstuff, half pint, hobbitsies.
"NOBODY WANTS TO PLAY AS FRODO"
Lawn ornaments, freak.
"Once you’ve gone gnome there’s gnome going home"
Shrek, marines, greenskins.
"An orc walked into a bar, nobody surprised, ducking is a rather tactical idea."
Fuzzies, furries, shifters.
"Whoa whoa whoa, don’t sleep with them, you might get fleas"
Tricky sons of bitches, bastards, sneaky-dicks.
"Don’t trust, don’t deal with them, don’t even look at them."
Captain boring, jacks, noob race.
"Somebody shut this shortlife up so the grown-ups can talk.
Please add anyone I missed.
Getting real tired of having to be a human.
I know I’ve been traumatised by getting into fights, but when I see injustice or antisocial behaviour, or when people try to force me to hide myself so as to appease their small mindedness I still can’t help but respond in ways that lead to violent confrontation.
If you can’t handle me at my worst then you don’t deserve me at my worst I’m so sorry I’ll try to be better in future.
