Perhaps this is a good time to remove the avatar descriptions. They are unnecessary and as they exist, are stunningly sexist, racist, and offensive. As HF is open to a wider group of users, this could be a PR issue. The descriptions are also rife with errors. The easiest fix is to remove them.
Here are some of the more blatant examples:
Racial stereotypes: Asian male is “cunning”, black male “has flavor”
Language used to describe female avatars: “organic, farm-raised”, “mother of five, still ready to bear more”
There are typos and grammatical error as well as factual ones: the black female avatar’s description begins with “Lupita means lovely in the language we know.” Lupita is a diminutive form of Guadalupe, which does not mean lovely.
There are many more subtle (ok, not really subtle at all) examples in the type of language used to describe the male and female avatars.
With this in open alpha now, can they simply be removed? Is there a compelling reason why HF is giving backstories for the avatars anyway, when they are supposed to represent people and not characters for us to play?
