a rag cut to pieces and and slabs of rotting leather.

Sounds like a terrible orc sterotype! I know many cultured orcs

horrible, horrible indeed...
yet for how acculturated an orc may be, his sense of fashion will always be leaking.

Well I actually don't like the looks of the orc, and it's not because I want them "prettier" but it's hard to look at the artwork on the orcs and feel sattisfied in any way when there is so much great orc artwork to see in Warhammer, AD&D, various fantasy novels, and so on.
It's not that I think that the orcs are ugly, it's that I think the artworks is bad. (sorry artist whomever you are)

Sounds like you're just trying to justify the sexist elf picture to me.

Seriously, guys, come ON! It's a DRAWING, it's fantasy! Jeebus the howls and accusations of sexism here.

Now, I'm female in real life, and I do not feel offended in any way whatsoever by these new avatars. In fact, I like them ALL very much better than the old ones. Who'd want to have an anorectic (no offense meant towards anorectic people!) looking teenager in a night gown? Seriously, enjoy the beautiful art work and stop yelling all kinds of accusations. Just enjoy having something beautiful to look at instead of the old ugly ones.

Some people not being offended does not invalidate others being so.

If you didn't care, you wouldn't have replied. Not sure why you think you need to announce it though.
