you are a blessing
do you know how much the ‘scientiic evolution’ argument pisses me the fuck off
THERE ARE VERY FEW SCIENTIFIC ASPECTS IN WOW
Literally the only race that I can think of that has an ACTUAL scientific evolution is, lo and behold, humans
and even then
even fucking then
their root origin is magical/metaphysical
like do you really wanna look me the fuck in the eyes and tell me that the only physical variation an ENTIRE FANTASY RACE CAN HAVE, A RACE EVOLVED THROUGH MAGICAL MEANS AND THUS THEIR GENE VARIATION CAN BE TOTALLY FUCKING OFF THE WALL CRAZY, is like, five shades of white skin and a couple of hair colors
is that what you really want to tell me
*puts on archaeologist fedora* Gonna argue against using evolution in discussing even humans, though. Not that the bigots will stop trying to trot it out to explain why brown elves are gross to their delicate eyes. ANYWAY let’s preach to the choir:
Given that significant population-wide coloration changes can be more than, like, 40k (count em) years in the making on average, the wibbly-wobbly-probably-maybe-4000-years in Warcraft is enough for Bobby Joensdottir’s family to evolve exactly… nothing of note. Maybe more redheads in the family tree. Freckles?
Evolution doesn’t work here to explain diversity in one race out of the playable 12 (? excepting worgen), so I wish these people would stop trying to use it to deny diversity. Magic and IRL responsibility are all there is to it. Because we have full control over our imaginary worlds, not some slow-moving natural selection peppered with natural disasters and shitty luck on a cosmic scale! We have responsibility to take care of representation because games don’t exist in a vacuum, played by pearl-lacquered androids!
Idk nonsensical word vomit. THESE PEOPLE MAKE ME MAD TOO.
