And if WotC doesn't like it, they don't have to sell it.DON'T LIKE IT? DON'T BUY IT!
You are putting me in the position to explain his post? I don't think that is up to me to do.That's a relief! Can you explain to me how those two things are similar?
Well, as soon as the Black, Asian or Hispanic cultures of the world produce a product that stereotypes White cultures in a less-than-informed way... you will be more than free to complain about it.While the same kind of disrespect is totally ok when directed at "white" cultures...
That is not my attitude.And this is exactly the sort of attitude I oppose. Just let them take anything down as soon as someone is offended by it.
There is so much I find offensive in your post, but this "white fragility" takes the cake. Say that about any other group and you'd be moderated. And just because people disagree with your opinion about what is acceptable in our hobby doesn't make them trolls.
I did not know that - only knew about the one 2 years ago (linked upthread)Sadras, you may have forgotten, but I linked and discussed these OA review videos in another thread about OA.
Why?In regards to D&D being just as disrespectful to European cultures as it is to Asian cultures, I’m not sure that’s a positive argument to make. Arguing that “It’s just as bad for us” does not argue in favor of the game either.
Well, apparently your complaints made back in the 80s fell on deaf ears and there weren't enough people who agreed with you.I quote myself. Try reading some manga made before the '80s.
The word has sometimes, in the past, been used as a term for people from Asia that was said to emphasize that they aren't "from around here".Can someone elighten me?
The term 'Oriental' maybe doesnt have the same connotations here in Australia than elsewhere.
Whats wrong with the title?
Same. I took an anthropology course in college about 15 years ago just cause it filled a requirement and fit into my schedule. I was very confused for the first couple classes when the Professor kept referring to places in middle east as the Orient. Something I had thought to mention very early in this thread but decided not to.So I was poking around and looking for the connection between Oriental and Orientalism and did not ever realize they refer to the Middle East just as much as they do Asia. When I hear Oriental, I have never thought of Persia or Turkey, only Japan or China or other east Asian countries.
