Now, you could call them something different than Old White Men. You could call them Wendigos or — my personal favorite– Bane-Ridden (that’s from the game Werewolf the Apocalypse) and say that you’re not one, or that your banes are different or that you’re a recovering wendigo. That’s fine.
But instead you keep the conversation on their terms. That’s fine with them.
I’ve dined with them. I’ve talked with them and joked with them. They love to show their teeth.
And they love that you are a sucker for the shit they feed you over and over and over again.
