Lots of *gamers* are whining about that paragraph about the gender binary in the character creation section of the 5e rules, complaining that its pandering and overly PC and being shoved down their throats and all that. One little side paragraph. Meanwhile others are praising it because it might bring in more women or poc which is at least less openly hostile but also completely misses the point because the paragraph is about not needing to conform to a gender binary.
Meanwhile, elves, halflings and dwarves are all described at length, multiple paragraphs each, all specifically stating the races are white.
Good lord the whole section on races is committed to a lack of diversity, I think you can handle one little paragraph that isn’t even mechanically relevant.
