D&D General Nolzur creates inclusive miniatures, people can't handle it.

So Nolzur came out with these miniatures, and the comments are like you expect (mostly jokes on clerics healing themselves):

For a group that keeps harping on the importance of verisimilitude, they seem to ignore how there is a whole swath of people today (including religious people like a cleric would be) that ignore healing themselves despite medicine being available...

Besides, and more importantly, how does this hurt anyone? How does being inclusive and recognizing how anyone can be a hero in a fantasy game hurt them or their gaming? It's like cruelty is the point.

Good on Wizkids for making these.

Yes, you've noticed that there are immature and selfish people in the world. Not news. The best way to combat this is to just be a good person. Do the right thing, but do it quietly. People pick up on others behaviour. Sometimes they won't, but that's okay.

There are also more involved and constructive ways to change the world.

In any case, outrage posts are neither of these things.

Not calling out bad behavior is how bad behavior gets normalized. Letting toxic opinions dominate the the discourse turns the discourse toxic. Sitting in comfortable silence with the moral high ground is easy when you're not the target, and does nothing to help those who are.

Posts like this aren't clickbait or wildly exaggerated hot takes. Just because those things do exist doesn't mean it's always a bad idea to call out bad actors. Indeed, they're necessary if we're to establish what the community standards are. Holding the line against the jerks and a-holes is a constant battle that is never won, only carried for another day.

Um, no. Don’t do it quietly. Do the right thing and do it loudly. Especially when doing it quietly allows the other people to continue hurting others

People are getting hurt by those types of comments. Standing up to them is important. For one, to show how that behavior isn’t OK, and two, to show the people who are being hurt that they aren’t alone or ignored.

Then call it out on the same platform it happens on; I don't want EN World to become another RPG.net, filled with self-righteous snarking about social media crapulence.

The EN World community's standards are already established. Posts like this don't help with that.
