    Young and stupid. Put a Z in your name. At least it wasn't an X.

    Your relentless defence is becoming farcuxal btw. Occasionally at least. Stupid Jedi sure Occasionally. But no one gets over basically. Disney's generally only generated 1 very popular character. That's Grogu.

    Competent not idiots. Slight difference. It's right through Disney product. Hux, Finn, Ahsoka, Thrawn, Jedi in this, Fett. You don't "get over" by making everyone look stupid. Occasional idiot sure but it's very noticeable.

    In my Greek game I have a Barbarian/Rogue player. He's from far western Greece. Them and the Macedonians are "barely greek". Sort of a joke. Macedonians and those silly try hards from Latium will never amount to anything. It's 432 BC.

    I don't want to see the Vong either. They weren't that good in Legends. Concept was kinda fine (extra galactic bioshapers). Liking Qimir Well watched it twice now. That episode wasn't good.Sol was going places now he's an idiot, borderline kidnapper and murdered a mother due to his own...

    D&D Historian Benn Riggs On Gary Gygax & Sexism

    I'm not allowed to reference my arguments. It overlaps with what I would do as grand high poobah. It would offend everyone put it that way. I wouldn't be copying America put it that way. In broad terms think Finland, FDR, Massive tax hikes. Not disagreeing with the the journeys destination...

    D&D Historian Benn Riggs On Gary Gygax & Sexism

    Nope he was a sexist it's right there in black and white. I did say I'm not a fan of his D&D either. 1E has gender based ability maximum in it. I wouldn't include stuff like that in any rpg I would hypothetically design. Olympic Powerlifting the RPG might be an exception but I wouldn't design...

    By blowback I meant financially or in any significant way. That blowback was essentially people disagreeing o firms. You're going to get blowback regardless. On any topic. Put 7 humans in a room you will get 8 opinions. Compare with Ernie firing hus mouth off. Except Ernie also...

    D&D Historian Benn Riggs On Gary Gygax & Sexism

    Want to compare notes on dates for women's rights, race relations, universal Healthcare, welfare, and pensions etc? All that nice to have stuff we got in the 19th century? Gary essentially faced 0 blowback for his comments in the 1970s. Why was that? I would argue its because of the 1970s. Why...

    D&D Historian Benn Riggs On Gary Gygax & Sexism

    I'm aware. Main point is if people still say that now it wouhd have been a lot worse then. All I'm saying is people are severely over estimating the degree of Garry's comments. Alot was swept under the ru or behind closed doors. People here are saying that if you xan find anyone in various...

    D&D Historian Benn Riggs On Gary Gygax & Sexism

    So you can't even comprehend that things were different in the 1970s? This is literally one of the first things they tell you at university in things like history and classics. I'm also saying it's a lot more common now than what people realize. This is not an endorsement, defense or...

    D&D Historian Benn Riggs On Gary Gygax & Sexism

    Perhaps. I suspect Gary's opinion wasn't tgat uncommon he just expressed it. I've heard a lot worse long after Gary sad it. It really depends on the social circles one moves on. Less than 10 years ago I was at a port doing paperwork. Opposing gang members, Russian boat crew, and a shed...

    D&D Historian Benn Riggs On Gary Gygax & Sexism

    Books fine might not be the best idea to go on Twitter to correct people about their comments. Even if you're objectively correct. I'm sure it had nothing to do with drumming up a headline. If you actually care about what's going on boycott Twitter don't use it, don't install it don't interact...

    D&D Historian Benn Riggs On Gary Gygax & Sexism

    People are also cherry picking those people who did say something. OD&D didn't sell very well but it wasn't because of the sexism. Once1E blew up elements of it were right there in the books vs an obscure interview. More context when I started playing Gary was just a name on a book. Barely...

    D&D Historian Benn Riggs On Gary Gygax & Sexism

    One can also look at other contemporary works as well. Revenge of the Nerds comes to mind. I tried rewatching Police Academy. It's not good and gets worse each movie (think I made it to the 3rd) Sure some people disagreed but I'm talking about what's acceptable for consumer and pulp culture...

    Did you do history st University? It was basically hammered into us to remember tgat historical sources were written in a different time. And then later people goes along and inject their own opinions into it often twisting what was written an the context it was written. Gary wrote what...
