"Wanted" implies I stopped wanting.
Not that I wanted. I just think it's a neat idea, and have always thought so even since the WoWInsider article. But eh.
You do realize that real world humans were, and in some parts of the world still are just as sexist if not more sexist, right? We've been trending towards equality, but things certainly didn't start out that way.
Night Elves are trending toward more relaxed gender roles too, but let's not pretend either that gender roles weren't in place. The amount of evidence that has been offered on this point is overwhelming.
The problem isn't that the Night Elves are sexist.
The problem is that the fans treat the sexism as a good thing.
The Cenarion circle used to be part of Night elf society, before the end of the Third war and the Horde became a thing in Kalimdor. Back then, there wasn't any need for them to be separated. Then the trouble between Night elf society and orcs started, and some Night elves and taurens who were part of the CC were uncomfortable going into a faction war when they were in the same organization, so the CC became neutral, cutting its ties from both the Horde and the Alliance.
At the time, it made sense. The conflict in Ashenvale was still minor at best, and there was faith that diplomacy would make things go better (and it almost did until Twilight's hammer came). Today... Not so much, since the Horde goes against everything the CC stands for.
He was a priest. It's confirmed in the questing.
Either he learned to be a priest real late in life, the quest designer didn't know/forgot there had been only been female priests for 10k years or Blizzard is retconning lore again.
Or he was a Priest outside out the Sisterhood of Elune is the same vein people are claiming there were female Druids outside of the Cenarion Circle...
Or, like I believe and the Druidess and Priest statuette asserts, the gender restrictions were lifted some time ago, and not just after WC3...
