*breaks into my own home* *hacker voice* i’m in
I keep making unnecessarily sexual noises whenever I see anything that has to do with Dragon Age: Inquisition; I honestly don’t mean to, but it’s reeeeeally difficult to not just get a massive, raging nerdboner all the tidbits of information being released.
Hawke: *lies naked on the bed*
Hawke: get Anders.
It’s another case of having to determine whether it’s “bad writing” or whether it’s intentional. Assuming that Anders’ writer has trouble determining ‘playful snark’ from misogyny isn’t that big of a stretch, but sometimes there are hints that make me believe that Anders really was written to be sexist.
As I said, Anders has very different dialogue depending on whether Hawke is female or not. None of the differences seem necessary, and many of the female-specific lines are condescending, especially compared to what he tells male!Hawke. Some lines are pretty passive, and are rather just indications that Anders just doesn’t see men and women in the same light.
No, Anders never tells any woman to ‘stay in the kitchen’, or uses misogynistic slurs (like ‘bitch’ or ‘slut/slattern’), and doesn’t partake in any slut-shaming aside from comments to Isabela that I’m sure he knew Isabela could handle just fine (“No, your hand isn’t what I’ve heard you’ve been showing”. The “she’s like a side dish” comment is probably pushing it, but I digress). He also does lots of good for women specifically, such as delivering children for free, and STD treatments. However, Anders clearly has problems with interacting with women on an equal, face-to-face level.(Cut for length because this post is SUPER long)

Found two baby bats rolling on my deck this morning. I had never seen a baby bat before, thought maybe others hadn’t either
