This question is in response to @nitsua60's comment on my old question. (I figure Meta is a better place for the discussion than comments on an old question)
Background for everyone else is that the sexuality tag was added to the above question. At the time, the tag wiki for the tag was as follows:
For questions related to in-game depictions of sexuality and any potential out-of-game issues related to those depictions.
(See also: the romance tag.)
After reading this, I did not agree that the tag applied, and eventually rolled the edit back.
My reasoning was well-summarized by Doppelgreener here:
Sexuality is about sexual attraction and sexual acts: the horizontal tango and people you'd want to do that thing with. Your actual physical sex is a separate topic, no relation. Someone saying "I was assigned male at birth" is not a sexual statement.
Simply put, the question does not at its core involve:
- Sexual Attraction
- Sexual Preference
- The players
It is instead, in its most concise form:
"My character is male. Does 5e have any mechanical way to change that temporarily?"
