I wrote about this on my writing blog, but I was just looking at an article on racism on the wiki that really hits a nerve for me on this whole issue.

Okay so in fantasy vampire, fairies, elves and whatever else are called races.

Like I have problem with that. To me it seems to be othering races as 'not human' you know what I mean? I just don't like it, I find it distasteful. I don't know if any of this makes sense, but yeah I wanted to record my thoughts on that.
