Intersectional Initiative

I propose a house rule to make tabletop RPGs more welcoming and inclusive to minorities who were traditionally excluded from the hobby: Intersectional Initiative. While the below tables were made with D&D in mind, they can easily be converted to any RPG once you grasp the intention behind the numbers.

Each player receives two bonuses to their initiative: One to reflect their intersectionality as a player, and the other to reflect the intersectionality of the character they have chosen to play. Total these two scores together and add them to the initiative die when rolled.

RACE OF PLAYER:
White +0
Person of color +1

RACE OF CHARACTER:
Human +0
Non Human +1

GENDER (player and character):
Male +0
Female +1
Transgender +2

RELIGION OF PLAYER:
Christian +0
Atheist +1
Muslim +2
Any other +1

RELIGION OF CHARACTER:
Atheist +1
Muslim +2
Any other +0

SEXUALITY (player and character):
Heterosexual +0
Homosexual +1
Bisexual +1
Pansexual +2

NPCs may also use the above tables, added together with the GM's intersectionality rated on the appropriate tables.

    This site is more about complaining about culture war stuff and pretending to be people you don't like than hobby discussion

      Can you blame us? Ever since RPGs became another front in the culture war, did you think there wouldn't be a backlash?
      I know you're used to taking it up the ass, but not everyone's a homosexual like you.

        You morons make everything a front for your personal culture war then complain that someone else was making it a front and you're just defending it. And on some dumb boards it works. It doesn't really work here. You're too transparent.

          That's not how i remember it.
          i remember everything being comfy and then fucking immensely annoying leftwing moralists sliding in. i missed the old days when boomer conservatives whined it was devil worship because at least they stayed out of it.Z
          now about every group i know is buzzing on a bout the new bugaboo

          RPGs are now a culture war battleground because the Left has made them political.
          As a reminder:
          > LULZ didn't introduce trigger warnings or the X-card in games
          > LULZ wasn't the one who rewrote Curse of Strahd to make Strahd a homo and to give the cripples a bit of spit-and-polish.
          > LULZ didn't invent the combat wheelchair, or claim that cripples would be useful in combat.
          > LULZ didn't petition for the complete removal of any mention of slavery from the Pathfinder setting
          > LULZ didn't post that hilariously bad 5E errata.
          > LULZ didn't remove the Confederacy from Deadlands
          > LULZ didn't start an international incident by claiming that vampires were responsible for the gay death camps in Chechnya.
          > LULZ didn't write the incredibly cringey antifa rants in the latest edition of Vampire
          > LULZ didn't invent Fruity Rudy, the gay black antifa Muslim Gangrel Anarch
          > LULZ didn't push for the removal of always-Evil races from D&D
          > LULZ didn't equate orcs with blacks
          > LULZ didn't write stuff like Sigmata or Ugly Sword Trannies
          > LULZ wasn't the one who invented two new cities of drow, because the drow being evil was 'racist'.
          > LULZ's not the one pushing for more diversity in RPGs
          > LULZ wasn't the one who did that cringey 'Warhammer is for Everyone' announcement
          > LULZ didn't force White Wizard Games to change the name to Wise Wizard Games
          That's all from the other side, because of the big diversity push

    Intersex is not part of LGBT. We are literally the only group where you do what we want by doing nothing.

    Is this a satirical post? Is this genuine bait?
    Is this reverse psychology psyop stuff?

    OP your college campus group may approve of this but at an LGS that isn't near a college campus most would give you "wat" looks or try to politely excuse themselves.

      We live in a time where the answer to that question isn't immediately obvious.

    You used intersectionality wrong. Its the idea that you shouldnt just support your own personal social issues. You vaguely applied intersectionality by considering multiple marginalized groups, but you didnt meaningfully adress their specific issues. Also the intersectionality of the player would be how well they adress other people's issues, not how "diverse" they are as a person

      You also got it wrong. Intersectionality is the negotiation of multiple applicable identities within identity politics.

    I want to burn the pride flag and the people who invented it. Homosexual deviancy has gone too far. I was OK with homosexual marriage, but they went after the children. Let it be well understood and known that if any homosexual, transexual or other deviant ever lays a hand on my children, they will be exterminated at a minutes notice. We know all too well that the current government is unsubstainable and filled with rampant homosexual corruption. Homosexuality is the vice that is used as leverage to get over on people and get deviant, evil things done in government. We know all of it, and we know it well. Don't try anything.
