PbtA stands for "Powered by the Apocalypse". basically, games that use a system derived from that devised for Apocalypse World. examples include Dungeon World, The Veil, and Monsterhearts, among many others.

one of the problems with the kind terfy ideology you seem to be espousing here is that you get far enough to recognize that gender is a construct, but still buy into the 'sex is an immutable binary science fact' lie that patriarchy has shoved down everyone's throats, while simultaneously having little empathy for trans people or understanding of our lived realities. the end result of which is that you're basically shilling for patriarchy, supporting cis people's identities and experiences while dismissing trans people's.

also, referring to people as 'males' and 'females' seems to be deliberately dehumanizing and calls to mind nothing so much as a misogynistic ferengi.

they don't describe themselves as left wing, but everything i've seen of their views seems in opposition to the right. i think they try to be officially 'neutral' to not scare off the people they're trying to bring around to their philosophy.
