So I am dating again. And sure enough, the man I am currently seeing sounds...a lot like this. He is older than me, so I'm sure some of it is generational. The boyfriend *does* want to see diverse and dynamic characters in tabletop games. The current game he is DM'ing has more women playing than men; it's something I have never seen or heard of. He tries hard to be a good male feminist and still learning (like me). I have had this conversation before with men who work in comic book and game stores, one where we are seeing men actually want to see women in more than cheesecake roles. I am under the assumption it is happening in other places too.
I *do* like this guys' ogre lady. I like seeing female characters that aren't pretty and dainty.
THA SUGAH RAIN You mean, female characters that you can more easily identify with.
Old_Zircon I'm all for this guy, but he's still funny.
In real life he'd probably be fun to bump in to around town.
