Find Your Asari Name

I want to make one of those silly name maker memes because they’re fun, so let’s try this one.

Asari First Name:
- First 3 letters of your preferred first name
- Last two or three letters of your mothers middle name (your choice)
- Put in an apostrophe if you’re in the mood

Asari Last Name:
- First letter of your birth city
- Last half(ish) of your middle name
- Add a T’ prefix if your current age is an even number

Mine would be Shara T’Selle. Add yours in the tags/reblogs :D

(EDIT: Now there’s a Quarian version too if you’re interested)

Does anyone else ever think about how strange it is that a galactic community ruled by

  1. a monogendered race
  2. an asexual race organized by matriarchal clans
  3. an egalitarian race that doesn’t care if you’re male or female

supposedly came up with a very human-like misogynistic culture complete with gentlemen’s clubs and sexist comments (but only to Femshep) and rampant objectification of the asari? Like, isn’t it silly that the galaxy’s supposed culturally dominant race doesn’t actually dictate the cultural norms and instead is misunderstood and diminished for being more open about their sexuality? THAT’S NOT HOW CULTURAL IMPERIALISM WORKS GDI.

Asari attitudes towards sex (and most other things) should be the standard in Citadel space… but no, Bioware wanted sexy babes but also didn’t want to give them any actual power, so we get this weird universe with a race that’s simultaneously discriminated against while supposedly dominating in culture and philosophy. How even does that happen.
