I know everyone’s all like “Woman power! Aggra shouldn’t have to stay behind with the kids” blah blah but
A) Do any of you have children?
B) I can understand Thrall wanting the children away from a war zone. As a woman, I wouldn’t be offended if my husband or wife ( being I’m bisexual)…
Hm. For me this isn’t about Thrall being misogynist, it’s about there being too few female characters around and Blizzards tendency to screw the ones we have over. We have an expansion coming that focuses so heavily on orcs and especially MALE orcs. One of the few female orcs we have who is a big name, kind of, is Aggra and it’s infuriating that they thought it’d be ok to just leave her out of the whole thing.
Also, it goes against what we’ve seen of orc culture and Aggras personality so far. I’m not saying it’s good parenting but the orcs are pretty brutal when it comes to caring for their babies. Aggra is very much an orc of the old ways and it just seems very strange that she would not be beside Thrall, especially when things get though, because in the past she has fought to do just that.
To answer your first question, no, I don’t have any children but I hardly see why that matters. This isn’t about human babies and either way and why would that make anyone’s opinion less valid?
A female character doesn’t always have to make the best decisions to be a “strong female character” but she does have to be present in the story…
