Its in the poses. Look how bare-chested men are posed - poses of strength, dominance, power. Skimpy women are draped over the scenery or are emphasizing their sexual characteristics for the viewers pleasure.Denamic said:Ironically, I find what you just said sexist. Muscles = strength, yes. But in no way does that inherently convey honour nor bravery. These are projected values. And sure, let's go with a fetishised female character. There may be tits and ass, but in a game like this, where female characters are as strong and brave as any male character, you'd still say they convey no strength, courage or honour just because their secondary sex characteristics are exaggerated? Okay.Windknight said:Caused muscled men embody all positive traits - strength, honour, bravery.Denamic said:Why does no one ever complain about the unrealistic portrayal of men with biceps the size of a small person? Why is exaggerating the female form more offensive than exaggerating the male form? Hell, the Dwarf is only clothed in his beard and loincloth.
I understand people may find it 'in bad taste' or whatever, but there's a huge double standard going on here.
Fetishised women are pretty much Tits n ass, tits n ass, tits n ass. No bravery, no strength, nothing but tits n ass.
