    Cannot think about mainstream RPGs - BUT D&D 5E was first to write you can, from what I remember.

      CthulhuTech has rules for actually transitioning between the genders. And the change is perfect, permanent and complete, down to the subject's very DNA. Though both CthulhuTech and this particular spell have their issues.

        Old school Palladium had Homosexuality as a mental illness on the random roll table.

        Gender isn't biological and also Cthulhutech is a rape-filled trainwreck of a game.

        Female pronouns for me, please.

          • High ranking priest secretary found in ( previous ) Holy Office of Inquisition palace on homosexual orgy with cocaine

            When will finally Catholic Church stop discriminate nonhetero people and abolish celibacy? Only then the Church will become healthy religion.

              I'm sorry, but I don't understand how your comment relates to the article you linked. Could you explain?

              • I meant hypocrisy of Catholic Church - organisation is against rights of nonhetero, when clearly - from linked incident - his own priests are homosexuals. They also do not sustain celibacy ( gay or straight ), so it's only dead law that leads in extremes to pathological behavior in them ( like in linked article ). Long story short - Church, end discrimination of nonhetero and lift celibacy from your priests. Just like Protestant churches done 20-30 years ago.

                • I doubt a gay coke orgy is going to make the RCC look any more favorably on LGBTQs. Reverse if anything, sadly.

                    RCC is Roman Catholic Church? And no, Church needs reforms - it needs from at least 20-30 years now. This scandal just points the need for change in this organisation.

                      If pedophilia scandals didn't change anything, then a teeny-weeny orgy definitely won't. There are literal goddamn satanic cults within the Catholic Church and nothing big will come of this.

                      • the intersection of dysphoria and health/disability stuff has me feeling especially worthless lately. and somehow all of my cards vanished from my purse which means starting over completely with documentation. they might be around the house somewhere but chronic pain makes it impossible to really look and no one wants to help.

                        anyway this seemed like the most appropriate place to vent.

                        • I am not sure if this would be the right place, or even if there's someone around that can give some informed opinion on the matter, but could someone please explain me asexuality?

                            I'm a bisexual bear, but from what I understand what few people I met I would describe as such - Asexual are persons not needing sex, in any way. They still can be hetero-, homo-, bi-romantic ( and fall in love ) but they will not have any sexual desires - maybe they will cuddle or kiss, but nothing more.

                            Really, English Wikipedia on LGBT+ matters is really good in describing those things - like Asexuality article.

                              Asexuality is a whole spectrum of identities generally defined by a lack of sexual attraction; beyond that, it can vary wildly. For instance, I have asexual friends who are completely sex-repulsed, while I know others who will have sex because it feels intimate and they know their partner enjoys it. The artist who draws most of the smut that I commission is asexual, but makes porn because it makes for interesting poses and because people like to look at it. Note that not feeling sexual attraction isn't the same as not feeling arousal, and that plenty of ace people masturbate - but some don't!

                              Asexual people can have romantic feelings, and I know plenty of ace folks in relationships.

                              • Yeah,my question was primarily due to that. I mean, being in a relationship with an asexual that is repulsed by that kind of intimacy is a no win scenario, so I wonder if that kind of repulsion was always the case of if there were "grades" as it were, when they might not be adverse to it with their partner for their sake while probably not seeking it themselves.
