okay inquisitors listen up.
we know of seven male characters who will play a prominent role in inquisition. seven.
this is blackwall. he’s white.
this is cole. he’s white. (like really, really, really white. like literally ghost white.)
this is varric. he’s golden white.
we don’t have profile pictures of solas and cullen yet, but solas is bald and white, while cullen is pretty dang white.
this is the iron bull. he’s horny.
and this is dorian pavus. he’s a man of color. he is unambiguously brown.
so in a game where, out of seven prominent male characters, five are without question white, one is a grayish qunari fellow, and only one is a man of color, art and mods whitening the only man of color in the game are unacceptable. end of story. don’t take the only man of color, who acts as representation for folks who don’t get the same level of representation as white men, and do this to him:
when you do this, you erase representation, you whitewash identities, and you hurt real human beings.
Hyvä Suomen lakivaliokunta,
Hellooo. If you receive this, you are asked to share five random facts about yourself, then pass it on to your ten favourite followers. I'd like to know. :)
- i’m short (5.2ft? 159cm)
- i buy more books instead of reading the ones i have and haven’t read yet
- i’m practically blind without my glasses
- i have a lot of sticky notes on the wall next to my computer screen; shows i want to watch, books i want to read, songs that i heard on the radio and i liked, fic ideas i want to get around to etc (i also have three notebooks for this purpose)
- i spend most of my money on food and video games
yes, i appreciate sera being confirmed as a lesbian but there is still the fact that she became very white throughout the development process and i think a lot of us are turning a blind eye to that fact right now
