Good afternoon/morning/evening. I am posting this to point out that many can feel insulted by "Carl" the deer NPC. My RL Fiance is named Carl, and he and I both feel as if he makes fun of men.


My Fiance has been through a lot. We would appreciate it if you either got rid of "Carl" completely(preferred) or at least renamed him.



Thank you.


(Carl glares at you with uncomprehending menace and utters a gruff bugle)

Carl I love you!

I don't really understand how Carl is insulting... He's just an animal.

/inches away from Carl
I mean... A captivating specimen that epitomizes all admirable and desirable traits that are possible for a member of the male species to possess.

Your fiance should be proud to share a name with him.

Really? I can't tell if you're serious or not, but just in case...

He's a rabid elk, and makes fun of no one but other elks. If you so want to protect the name Carl then you have bigger fish to fry than a crazy deer on a random website:

-There's Carl "CJ" Johnson, one of the stars of the Grand Theft Auto games. He regularly steals cars, runs drugs, kills people and uses prostitutes.

-Also there's Carl from Aqua Teen Hunger Force. He's protrayed as a fat, lowlife idiot who can't hold a job, and spends all his money on prostitutes and strip clubs.

-Carl Frederickson, the old man from Pixar's Up. He's a grumpy, anti-social old man who runs everyone off his property.

Fix the negative portrayals those guys are giving "Carl" before worrying about our dear antlered shopkeeper.
and lets not forget that llama named Carl who likes to kill people

I am hoping this is a troll ..

Sadly, I don't think it is. There's nothing in the post history to indicate trollishness.. and usually there is. But there's always a chance that she's just found a love for trolling.


OP, if your serious.. I just have to say that may be the most ridiculous claim I've ever heard. My name is Wendy.. I don't get insulted that Wendy from Peter Pan is bossy, or anything else that another Wendy may have going on. They aren't directly related to me in any way. [NPC] Carl is not made as a persona of your fiance. If you guys are seriously offended by it, you both are way too sensitive.


Actually in your case, I think the name Wendy originally came from Peter Pan so you are related in a way. xp

@OP: Almost every character in anime I've found named Anne is either dead, a villian or been kidnapped maidens. This doesn't offend me, and no I don't fault those series for portraying people with my name as evil kidnapped corpses.

Yeah, it did come from Peter Pan, so perhaps there is the smallest correlation. But I'm still not insulted by it ^_^

Are you also offended by cats, dogs, birds, chickens, ducks, fish, turkeys, possums, racoons, monkeys, giraffes, lions, cheetahs, bears, pandas, polar bears, jaguars or other any other animals that are named "Carl"? That's the only way I'm gonna call this a legit complaint.

Okay, I'm just throwing this out there--

Maybe the OP is trying to make a point about Derpy Hooves from MLP? And is protesting the name change? Although it's an awfully roundabout way to protest...

It's the only thing I can think of. A person or character's name simply should not be taken offensively. Unless such offense is deliberate-- like if someone named a character "N----rface" or something.

Carl Winslow from Family Matters: Not a stereotype, but has strengths and weaknesses, and is an awesome character. Doesn't create male sexism that way.

As for the "no trolling history" there could be the possibility of a computer being usurped or account being hacked... just saying. :/

I'm sorry, but your fiance is not a unique special snowflake and he is not the only one in the world with the name Carl.
