Tell me, what exactly is wrong with writers wanting to ensure that they didn’t write something unintentionally bigoted or racist? Or are you just one of those people who gets off using the latest alt-right dogwhistle for racism?

If you have a creative team that can’t depict the subjects of their title well, they probably shouldn’t be in that role. It is not impossible to reach across gender and social divides to write someone not yourself. Men can write women the same way as women can write men. The fact they can’t is they are misplacing their energy in the wrong place (“boobing boobily”).

I learn yesterday that if you have an alliance in Civ 6 that shares visibility (like a level 2 military alliance, any alliance with the Cree, or shared visibility in multiplayer), you don’t get a first-meet envoy.

That if they suck at writing a character simply because of what they have between their legs, than they need to practice and improve before they go into a professional field.

Yeah it’s not exceptionally difficult. The guidelines even - designed mostly as reference points - aren’t super complicated, or are even tongue and cheek bits about film and television. Essentially a woman must exist and have an independent plot arch that doesn’t directly support a man; the “Mako Mori Test”. Or the more infamous Bechdal Test, two women on screen do not have a conversation about a man.
And there. You’re done.

I never liked that test since you can just cheat and make everyone women so every conversation could be them wanting to bone the lead and it would pass despite being the same if the lead was a guy.

I’m going to do general boosting for Forever Winter. So watch this space (go to its Steam page or smth or Fun Dog’s channel I guess)

Mo, the Bechdal test is if two or more women have a conversation not about a guy.
Of course the two women who wrote the test in the 80s also don’t describe it as a hard and fast rule. You can write women talking about a male character. But the common theme surrounding the guidelines in writing women feministly is to draw awareness of, so you avoid writing women as a secondary and supporting tool for the men. Being a general critique guideline, you can break the rule so long as the breaking of it does not reinforce the notion that the male is the central figure, and the competition between the ladies is not subservient to that. In pure romance terms, you can accommodate for the critique by juxtaposing the conversation between women about a man, by having the same man elsewhere in the story discuss the relationship with one of the two women with another man. Or have two men discuss a relationship with a woman. The spirit of the “test”/guideline as I’ve received it is to turn on its head or dismiss the notion that women’s role in media is to be the active pursuers of a romantic or sexual affair, encourage the perception that men too can pursue a relationship with a woman and have the same doubts or conflict, or to throw that all aside and abandon heterosexual norms and have two women discuss a romantic relationship with a third woman (or two men a romantic relationship with another man).

It’s actually relatively easy to find loopholes in many tests like those. Most people see those tests not as an encouragement but rather as a paperwork procedure that gets in the way.
It’s really funny to me, sometimes the more people try to not be racists or sexists, the more they end up looking way more racist and sexist they pretend. Turns out putting an hyper focus in a trait makes it look like you are really bothered by said trait and it feels unnatural to you.
That’s why I’d rather evaluate games without checking out many professional evaluations, though I’m actually very open to audience reviews, after all they’re the ones who actually paid for said games so whatever they say carries some sense of risk and reward.

Thing is, there’s a thing called “The Path of Least Resistance”.
You could jump through a bunch of hoops to avoid being problematic. You might succeed, or you might screw it up and suffer a backlash. Basically no one will thank you for the effort.
Or, you can cast a white dude, basically portray them however the hell you want, and probably have as many if not fewer people complain about it.
