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.

"Anarchists know that a long period of education must precede any great fundamental change in society, hence they do not believe in vote begging, nor political campaigns, but rather in the development of self-thinking individuals."

"The sex industry should be decriminalized. (...) Its criminalization will help to draw more and more women into the prison industrial complex. There is a racist dimension to this process, since a disproportionate number of these women will be women of color."
