Time to bring out the burkas! Oh wait, those are sexist too... how do you win here exactly? Dress the character as a conservative librarian or something?tangoprime said:The Amazon is wearing basically no clothing, and the Archer is clearly displaying Absolute Territory, http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ZettaiRyouikiToastiestZombie said:What irks me is that all the other characters designs are being ignored because of one OTT female character in a game filled with OTT characters. Here's a picture of all the characters:
The other two female characters are a pretty, but relatively un-sexualized archer and a MASSIVE amazonian woman.
Another thing that irks me is the fact that because of this one character the game hasn't had any other discussion about it, and to be honest it doesn't even look that good anyway.
So yeah... they're still pretty sexualized.
Movie Bob once calmed that the extremely attractive male characters are 'self image fantasies for men' and female characters are image fantasies also for men. The thing is, the Male self image fantasies are to be attractive to females. That is also true for Women. The idealization of any character is not only for the opposite gender, but also a self image fantasy for that gender. Just look at the female cosplayers wearing who attempt some of these costumes.
I understand the portrayal is imbalanced, it's impossible for that not to happen since men and women are so different.
