Un exemple récent lu hier sur En World :
Hags and (evil) witches are pretty much the same trope, and they are very much "old women". Certainly, in D&D, they technically aren't human, and are possibly even not gendered male or female . . . but the mythology that inspires the D&D creature is definitely an "old women are scary" sort of thing, and D&D hasn't done much to change that.
To make it explicit that hags aren't all scary old ladies in D&D . . . it would be tough to leave that imagery behind, but worth doing IMO. Although, in addition to the ageism (old people are scary) and misogyny (women are scary) . . . we have the unfortunate trope of physical ugliness = evil, which of course extends well beyond the hags in D&D . . . .
D&D has a lot of negative baggage that it inherited from mythology, folklore, and literature . . . it certainly won't all be expunged with the next edition of the game. But any progress is progess!
