Tired of Effeminate Depictions of Elven Men

Just as Tolkien and the Inklings used to meet at The Bird and the Baby, come in here to converse about whatever might be on your mind. This is the place for all off-topic conversation.

Our poster is so desperate to find offence at Fingolfin *crossing his legs*, yet not one peep from him at John Howe and Ted Nasmith portraying the High King of the Noldor as a blond. It's almost as though this rant is less about accuracy and more about homophobia.

Actually, I share your dislike of the very idea of a blonde Fingolfin. However, we should be more accepting of homophobic views on a Tolkien forum (though obviously not homophobia for the sake of mere homophobia). JRRT was a devout Catholic, as many of you know, and had many traditional views regarding sexuality, gender and race.
