I want a racial change because I want to change my racial abilities, not because I want to hide who I am or was. So if you’re not gonna allow racial changes, then make a compromise and allow racial ability changes. So why not allow racial abilities change only?
This way a person can’t change their name or appearance, but have the option to change their racial abilities. This makes both sides of the racial change argument happy. There is absolutely no drawback of this option being available. Any drawbacks of this idea?
