Legit situation in one of those Pokemon games as well. You choose the woman character because her personality is quite....girly lmao and so she does lots of  Animal Crossing Items additional cutesy wootsy bullshit that takes up time when she is an NPC. The male character is quite stoic in contrast and cuts out all the excess stuff.That's just the sort of thing that is ruining D&D at the moment, you joke about it people are legitimately fighting for Orc rights. The very concept of having a race that leans towards evil alignment in a world where alignment is important and enforced with magic that exists in universe is racist.

Didn't they say they are eliminating'race' for next entrances because iT wAs rAcIsT? You select your own today so that you may be a strong elf or a smart orc.

They did not even eliminate racial bonuses, they just gave you the choice to change them if you would like.

The thing is, people could have been doing this anyway, but it's in the rules for 5e. Like, one of the biggest items in DnD is homebrew and tweaking the rules as you see fit. If individuals don't desire bad orcs, they can just not have evil orcs in their campaign, it is so simple.I hear Not Another D&D Podcast and their campaign exists in a universe where interbreeding has been a thing for millenia, so there are no"races". Every being is a great number of distinct racial aspects.

For player characters it let the players pick one civic"course" while using their personality look however the want, and all beings are very"human-monster hybrid".

Eg. Emily's PC, Fia, is described as being violet peeled and fanged, slightly"orcish" in her face however extended and gangly elven body type. She uses the racial stats of Vedalken. It is a mishmash of different descriptions that works great with a"look how you would like, but apply a race's features".

It's also an optional rule. I personally think it's a bit OP since you can chose a feat on every race (a feat is basically like a gift and some are extremely powerful ), but in the end it is to make your character more elastic once you want to play an Orc Wizard f.e. and do not have much use for your bonus strength.It's more fun because you can play some other race as any course but it makes races just another piece of fluff details which you tell your celebration once and then they overlook the whole game their wizard is a half-orc.

In addition to the whole thing started because a bunch of  Cheap Nook Miles Ticket people were whining about orcs being displaced because they are D&D depiction of black people seemingly, even though individuals are a separate race...
