This is actually due to dwarves not having any biological sex. Dwarves reproduce asexually and their gender is just a societal construct.

Thats the real reason you see so few female dwarves. They go out into the world and see this heterogeneous society and think they should act like that. Of course, with the patriarchy so rampant in fantasy worlds, when they make this choice of what gender to be, they generally pick male, not realizing the damage they're doing by reinforcing these gender stereotypes.

@rdh what universe does this theory apply to?

@rdh hmm. hmm. Okay. Where do you stand on Duergar?

@UWBW

Duergar are the spawn of Illithid experiments, but are otherwise similar to their dwarven cousins in terms of reproduction.

@rdh okay. Right. But it's time we address...

The danny devito question.
