This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Guys go for that cheese cake.  It is a Karen and SJW repellent.

Yep. Just slap some Caldwell art on your gaming folder and any wokes will go Donald Sutherland in Body Snatchers.

That's some funny shtuff right there. I laughed out loud cause that was so vivid in my mind.

  :D Check the way the OP of that thread phrases a post a little further down the page:

Quote
Here are two quick examples that illustrate my comment above. Two pieces I recently had commissioned. Both were diverse artists I had hired. One is an artist of Mesoamerican heritage, doing a piece inspired from their culture. The other is from an African American, but his dress is wholly European. I should have caught that and did better.

In other words these INDIVIDUAL artists are DIVERSE because they are not white. And the African American's art didn't hold up because it still looked too white.
This is comedy & cringe ;D (did I just come up with a new RPG name there?)

You sir, put it better than I could. Cause that's what I was thinking as well.

I never knew the Harlot Table existed before the EnWorld thread. Slovenly Trull is one of the funniest things I have ever read. It's even funnier because as far as I can tell there's no such slang term as trull, (but there probably should be).

My Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay Group has just reached Marienburg and if anyone doesn't think they are going to meet a slovenly trull in the next session, well they just haven't been paying attention.

I am actually factually, literally, crying with laughter over the harlot table. The follow up with saucy tart...it's so ridiculous.

Probably a subject for its own thread but since this one isnt going anywhere anyhow...

Those are all real terms used in the past and some even fairly recently.
Trull = prositutute.
Strumpet = woman who is very sexually active.
Trollop = woman who is very sexually active.
Tart = woman who is very sexually active.
Wench = attractive girl
Doxy = a mistress.
Procuress = essentially a female procurer. In this case could mean brothel owner?

Several of these have over time also been used mean a prostitute. Even wench and tart and strumpet.
Bemusingly my grandmother would call some women floozies.

S'mon

I use floozy!  ;D Albeit mostly ironically, and mostly in-game. But it's only slightly archaic in British English I'd say.

Actually Google seems to think floozies are on the up-and-up: https://books.google.com/ngrams/graph?year_start=1800&year_end=2019&corpus=26&smoothing=7&case_insensitive=on&content=floozy&direct_url=t4%3B%2Cfloozy%3B%2Cc0%3B%2Cs0%3B%3Bfloozy%3B%2Cc0%3B%3BFloozy%3B%2Cc0
