Yeah, this. I haven't gotten all that far about level 10 on my Norn and 16 on my Charr but I've adaerly seem some amount of commentary. I will note that it's been through the personal stories and maybe it's been different depending on which options you pick, but there were two scenarios that stood out for me. One being where my character and Eir Stegalkin confront a Svanir shaman and basically call him out on his BS regarding women he tries to brush you off and you give him NO choice in the matter. Then with the Charr, there's a scene where you're sent to recover supplies with a female companion; you find out the supplies are being stolen by the Flame Legion, who try to woo you over to their side, with the assurance that females have it easier in Flame Legion. Your companion responds with dialogue that boils down to, Wait. You want me to defect and then demote me to FRY COOK? Part of that, though, is the tone of the voice acting. The sheer incredulity of how ridiculous this suggestion is can't entirely be described in text.The commentary is subtle but there, and I've also run across male characters that have commented on how ridiculous the misogynistic attitudes are which I find worthy of comment because in most games, it is only the women characters that speak up. Which is problematic to me, because it suggests complacency and perhaps passive acceptance on the part of the male characters.
