I get exactly where Jessica is coming from...Pretty much every thread here on gender discrimination/sexism, somewhere usually by the second page, there is a post (usually from the same handful of posters) that basically goes "BUT WHAT ABOUT MEN", which in context comes across as denying there is any problem at all.
Mostly because gender discrimination is a two way street and some of us give a damn about that being acknowledged not just "men are evil if they do not behave in the way we demand" and if they are hurt and want their issue addressed too screw them. The knee jerk attack on men for mentioning sexism against them is the height of hypocritical sexism. maybe the topic of GENDER discrimination should be about all genders not the usual evil male steriotype.
Slavery in the Pathfinder World and it's implications...(series of weird questions regarding a controversial topic)
Ulfen thralldom works pretty much the same. You work to basically pay a debt.
Exactly, maybe some want it acknowledged that this issue is not as simple as some want to make it. But you know how these things go...
Funny how that works. We have an issue in the "sensitive people" about who is a "victim class" and who is the "aggressor", and one cannot be the other. So we cannot blame the victim, but a man cannot be the victim so blame him....
is cosmo designed to attract the male eye? Maybe some women enjoy the portrayal of an attractive female character. I do not see any issue with very strong female characters, i have seen farm girls that are scary strong. My problem is the petite 110 lbs have 18+ str. Of course i apply that to scrawny male characters too.

Or 4 times more likely to die violently.

reality be damned this is not the cause they care for
I love the theme of holy wrath. my issue is the bonus feats, why do they get 2 mounted combat feats?
It lowers the current population and removes a person that is using an ever increasing amount of resources without the likelihood of adding any. not nice but better for the world in the long run

in all fairness cousins cannot legally marry either, is that a violation of rights?
California is known to have a large homosexual population so how that state deals with them sets the precedents for the nation in many ways. Outside of that it has no impact on anything outside of it's borders.
Both had some degree. Second ed made more sense basically armors were better/worse vs slah/pierce/blunt but did not take specific weapons into account. 1E did it by weapon vs AC but not specifically by armor worn
Exactly, and having a reason for things not being what they normally are.
Exactly. planetouched do have some creative wiggle room. they are still what they are and that is very much not human. Hell look at the sample picture, they are at those levels of not human.
Um people are arguing against their race looking like their race. Planetouched are not human. no more than elf, dwarf, gnome or orc. to want to have them look totally human is asking to change what they ARE.
You want to play a human, play one. would it be ok for people to say there elf, dwarf and catfolk are all close enough to being human that no one can tell they are not human? There are different because they ARE, you want a game where you pick what ability sets you want to match to whatever appearance you want this is not it. Your race is your race get over it. Or do what you need to to look different by the rules. why is that so hard to understand?
Of course the fanboy "must be better" set do not want rules like how badly cold and wet can ruin a bow or how hard they can be to use in tight spaces etc. Because in reality (what SKR said we should look at before wanting our water balloons to not suck)Those would get so many of the super archers dead.
Adventurers are Eccentric, keep it reasonable, don't let a character hog attention because of his race

No it is a +4. yeah it is only to look like one specific race but that is a trait that gives beter than a +3 that skill focus does so still not bad if you really care about passing for human.

Its like a european with a tan trying to look african. In a crowd no one would think twice about the lighter skinned guy but anyone that actually LOOKS can tell clearly he is not. Sure with makeup maybe, but that is a disguise check. And that is less of a difference than what you are talking about

The "it's special because i can do it and you cannot" belongs in preschool at best, i would hope the PFS players are more mature. Cons are fine, good to play with new people, but they should never be the key to all of the good things the game has to offer.
Why do cons need to give exclusive stuff to draw people? And i definitely call BS on the "you are just fine with just core" when you want some people to have more. players should have more or less equal choices in this game. hell this crap is half of why i keep considering NOT playing PFS anymore
I don't know that many players locally, couldn't fit three tables in that shop, and don't think the dog would like to share the back yard for three days.
Organizing a con isn't a realistic possibility for a lot of people.
Some struggle to have a table with enough players to play at all.....
Then why be against letting any player have that race without begging a con chaser? So your arguement is that is fair to only have them come from cons because you must have someone else that goes to cons to get them from? wow
True but if the character is always "just a little girl" even when it is a huge penalty is that not mechanical penalty for mechanical bonus so it is fair? As long as it is consistent at least
Extreme examples have their place to show where things will lead if lines are not drawn. When one person says a human with cat ears is ok, the next guy might want claws and a tail too. when he gets the ok the next one will say a catfolk is not far off that. when that gets ok the next guy says that a bit more animal is not too different so he should get to play that, quickly followed by the awakened cat then the half celestial awakened cat etc. Incremental jumps can lead to huge leaps too.
