Episode 95: Building and Bending Gender, ft. G.R. MACALLISTER
When you're building a society's conceptions of gender and gender roles... where do you start? Do you want to draw from historical precedent (for good or ill), or try to create something from scratch? G.R. Macallister joins us to discuss thoughtfully incorporating ideas of gender into your world, whether or not you're making it a cornerstone of your premise.
We also discuss where gender intersects with other important worldbuilding concepts: religion, government, sexuality, family structures, and more!
