the dao "both genders (ugh...) are evenly represented in nobility/military" thing during character creation annoys the HELL out of me, and not not just because it's cisnormative. like why did the devs even bother writing that when it's absolute bs? let's take the warrior human noble origin as an example... nearly every single male you encounter is rude/surprised/patronizing about you being female. meeting morrigan and flemeth (who are nice to you) is always a breath of fresh air during ostagar.
Exactly. Honestly someone should count how many times a human female warrior gets hit by dudebro comments within the first hour of gameplay.
And yeah, not to mention it be nice if the series quit with the binary language… Especially considering they have canonically nonbinary characters? Just maybe even on a meta level.
