Obvious troll is obvious. Just ignore them.

I'm not linking to a post that's obviously gonna get deleted. Needless to say, he said some dumb stuff.

Ignoring the misspellings this guy's post, The whole company changed their logo to a rainbow in June. I think we're way past the point where the view of this poster is representative of the average Paizo customer or developer. Representation in RPG of homosexual and transgender characters is the new normal. Get used it.

The great irony is that there is a very good chance the renewed activity will get people posting in this thread again, thus undoing whatever small victory the troll has achieved.

Probably so!

I'm still trying to figure out what label this PC would be; an AFAB character who drank a serum of sex shift to change her primary sexual traits and leave her secondary ones as is. That doesn't seem cis, but since she still goes by she/her, I'm not sure if it's trans either, and she's definitely firmly on one side of the binary...

Guess "you'd have to ask her" would be the way to do it!

Its possible that various forms of this kind of. . . I guess "voluntarily intersex"? . . . status might take over the word 'trans' in this setting or a similar one. After all, the medical technology and magic is such that the real world form of transgender should be readily identifiable and treatable with biological sex transformation indistinguishable from having been born with the "correct" body to match your neurological sex.

At which point. . . well, its also a setting with countless species, who don't only have radically different concepts of gender express and sexual dimorphism, but who quite often don't even have two genders. I kind of have a hard time imagining that "I was born with the wrong body, but it got fixed at age 6" being a thing that would bother anybody in nearly all cases.

Just wanted to chime in with how happy I am with where lashunta wound up compared to their iffy presentation in Pathfinder, and that those changes are called out explicitly as the work of in-setting activists, rather than just retcons.


Agreed. Lashunta in pathfinder were eye rolling for most of my group, myself included. An outdated cliche, that starfinder dug into and salvage in a big way, to the point that my favourite SFS character is one.


I do like their more insectoid appearance as well.

And with linguistic differences on top of that, I suspect that you'd have a popularization of neutral pronoun usage as the widespread default with specific forms of address used on request.

There's a joke in there about storing 1.9 bulk in their cheek pouches, but it might not be appropriate for these boards. :)

My favorite sci-fi series uses xe/xyr as the default, with it being understood that you use those for everyone until told otherwise.
