Femtaur Monday #14!
Every Monday I will do a quick post, spotlighting a special Femtaur. They could be from Lore, friendly Forumers, Tweetaurs, or even from my very own character list :3
Today, I will be highlighting:
noun 1. the flesh of a cow, steer, or bull raised and killed for its meat.
The WoW community traditionally puts Tauren in the “cow” category. You can see this in the comments associated with Kaga. We, the players, create names like “Holycow”. Even Blizzard added a built-in /moo emote sound just for the Tauren race. We all joke around but when it comes down to it, Femtaur aren’t cows and Maletaur aren’t bulls.
Kaga is simply supplying the (omnivorous) Tauren with sustenance. She is not peddling cannibalism.
“Tauren are large, muscular humanoids and bovine in appearance, complete with hooves and horns.”
Let us not forget that Tauren are merely bovine-like humanoids.
In my journey throughout the inter-webs, I came across this blog post. Going Bear Foot has not been active since July of 2011 but I am simply in love with this post. Even if you are not one to enjoy fan fiction or even role-playing, I suggest that you stick it out for this post… for me. The drawings are well done and Tawadikata makes many excellent points. My favorite quote from the post is this:
“I propose that should the other races of the world find ‘cow’ to be an acceptable term for tauren, that ‘goat’ stand for draenei, ‘boar’ for orc, ‘bunny’ for elf, and so on.” (sic)
