Anonymous said: Is it weird that even though it's a made up slur I still get really uncomfortable when people use the slur knife ear towards elves? Like that tweet from the dev that had assquistor use it for comedic effect was so...:/

I don’t think it’s weird. It probably reminds you of slurs from real life.

Though Weekes likely isn’t doing it maliciously, I definitely get why the Assquisitor tweets would make you or anyone else uncomfortable.

Yeah, I felt really uncomfortable with it too. 

Like usually fantasy slurs don’t really phase me but there is something about “knife-ear” that makes me shutter and sets my blood boiling. 

I think actually it is that it sounds vaguely like a really awful real life slur.  

Yeah, it upsets me as well. A lot. IDK why but it does.

Like mudblood doesn’t, because that doesn’t sound like a possible real slur. It sounds ‘funny’.
But knife ear, like Prag says, sounds more like real life slurs.

I agree with you both. There’s something very specific about the phrase “knife-ear” that sets off alarm bells. Maybe it was intentional, to get the player to care about elven issues. But, then again, considering how elven issues are never really at the forefront, I kinda doubt that….

Brand doesn’t do it. Or Duster.

Because those don’t sound like IRL slurs. 

But knife-ear is different somehow.

Maybe it has to do with elves being coded as non-white, but especially in some aspects being coded Jewish that makes it bother me whereas mages and casteless and muggleborns have no IRL parallel, IDK?

Yeah, I know people like the theory of mages being coded as queer or mentally ill, but the problem with that is that being queer or mentally ill doesn’t give you superpowers. >__> So it’s not a very good parallel in the context of the story.

I agree, though I may add that mudblood does make me uncomfortable too, despite the fact that I’ll occasionally use it ironically.

achilles owning a shirt that says ‘if lost return to patroclus’ and patroclus owning the ‘i am patroclus’ shirt

i love those shirts because alone they make no sense. you’re patroclus? good for you man.

it keeps people from thinking he’s Achilles and murdering him

don’t date someone that promises you forever. date someone who acknowledges that life happens, that people change, that things may get in the way. date someone who despite knowing all of that, tries their hardest for your relationship.
