Okay, so I have here a bit of what was meant to be humorous dialogue from PvP that I thought I should run past other people to make sure I’m not inadvertently being offensive to transfolk. Can people less cis-privileged than me vet this for me, please, to make sure I’m not putting my foot in it?” (The use of the language is deliberate, since they’re making plays on words using the slurs chosen by someone who was obviously not a good guy.)
“Speaking of which,” Rosie said, deftly trying to change the subject and get Niles out of Jordan’s over-protective sights, “What did you think of our new off-tank?”
“Bolment?” Niles frowned. “I’m wondering why the hell he applied to the guild if he didn’t understand what we were about.” He shrugged. “I gave him his one and only warning last night after you went to bed that the language wasn’t going to fly after he made some remark about how his previous guild had been a bunch of ‘pussywhipped faggots’ because they hadn’t been able to commit to a more frequent raiding schedule due to family obligations.”
“Seriously?” The corners of Rosie’s mouth twitched and Niles echoed the smile.
“Well, as part of giving him his warning, I told him I could say with absolute authority that faggots generally aren’t pussywhipped.”
Rosie tsked. “Little cis-centric there, don’t you think?”
“Okay, true. Depending on where a guy’s partner falls on the gender spectrum, I suppose there is indeed a chance he might be a pussywhipped faggot.”
