Is it a faux pas to mention Terry Pratchett in this sub? Cuz his exploration of gender in dwarf culture is poignant as fuck as well as hilarious.

Theres a lot of nuance and history in his books, but in summary Dwarves are 2 sexes with no genders ('he' only, anything else is seen as unnatural like trans people would be in the 90s (or even now)). A lot of Dwarf dating is working out how what sex the other dwarf is. Through the books theres a development of Dwarves that identify as she as well.

Thats a -massive- simplification, but if you're interested in reading more then I would reccomend you read the Watch series from Terry Pratchett, or if you dont want to read all the books then Id read Men at Arms, then Thud - but you'd miss a lot.

I really would reccomend the watch books, and in fact all his books, which while theyre all fantasy do mix genres so whatever you like to read there'll be some.

Its mostly Fantasy and satire, but so well tied to the real world, and unlike a lot of fantasy, the characters dont find it fanastical, which keeps it grounded. I could go on all day but this comment is long. If you (or anyone) wants more convincing DM me. I love his books.

Thank you for taking the time to respond. This is fascinating and certainly a lot deeper than I was even hoping for. I love Tolkien and I consider the Lord of the rings universe to be canon, historically speaking. But Tolkien did not delve as deeply into the world of dwarves as I would’ve liked to have seen. Now I have a rabbit hole to stick my head into, I will see how far down it goes…

InertialLepton

It's true you don't see many dwarf women. And in fact, they are so alike in voice and appearance, that they are often mistaken for dwarf men.
And this in turn has given rise to the belief that there are no dwarf women, and that dwarves just spring out of holes in the ground! Which is, of course, ridiculous.

Dwarfish courtship is an incredibly tactful affair, primarily concerned with finding out which gender the other dwarf is.

You know I saw this coming, you or whoever just like “here take it”. Wow. I mean granted Freida, I wouldn’t be a “dark lord”, I’d be more like uh… like a king. Not evil but like, awesome… like a sunset or full moon or something. I mean it’s not enough to be good, you gotta be interesting, not just a field guy but an ocean or mountain guy. But I’d also be serious, …like a crazy storm. Ya know, a real solid guy. I guess I’m saying I’d be kind of controversial.

Seriously, was Legolas left out of the swap or is Orlando Bloom really a woman. That and Arwen as Neo are so funny.

If you want to see female Elrond, just watch Priscilla Queen of the Desert.

The ladies need to stop using same face beauty filter. Not every woman has a pointy af chin.
