Wait, is the bearded guy supposed to be typing that stuff on the screen, or just reading it? If the latter, then the guy in the orange jumpsuit is making no sense.
The latter. He made a comment about representation, and was accused of being an SJW despite the proclivities he was showing off onscreen at the time.

The joke is taking the piss out of the use of SJW as a snarl word any time someone so much as suggests that a broader base would be nice.

So yes, the guy in the orange jumpsuit is making no sense. This is not a bug.

At least they don't do the anime thing where they all look at least 25 (or are stacked as such) but are actually like 12 or something.
Or, just as often, the other way around.

Usually if its the other way around they are like 300 or something ridiculous.

You're being ableist Blizzard.
Tracer is un-stuck in time and needs paraphernalia to live something resembling a normal life.
Seems disabled to me.

Excuse me, but on behalf of the tittie-less I demand that you cease your attempts to exclude us from this discussion.

That guy looks so much like JP I wonder if he just clicked on a random Overwatch stream and it is.

Mei is still the best girl and if you disagree you are a racist.
I respect your racism accusation and your opinion but you are a racist and ageist for having the brass balls of heresy to say D.Va isn't a best.
You have an odd way of spelling Pharah.

I think there were hints (a documentary in Blizzard's office showed a character-select screen with what looked like a sniper in the Support-slot) that Pharah's mother may become a playable character in the future. So, y'know, maybe?

Isn't Symmetra missing an arm?
Her comic on the OW site seems to hint that she has some kind of mental disorder as well, probably autism but it's not clear. So she counts twice. (Which makes the fact that one of her lines is "the enemy of humanity is disorder" kinda funny)

Well I can understand tracer and her time stuff. But what about the rest of the ladies?
Mei was cyrongenically frozen.
Mercy keeps herself physically young with medical super-science.
Windowmaker has a slowed metabolism.

Symmetra, Zarya and Pharah weren't part of the original Overwatch, they're just regular young. All are in their mid-late 20s.

Pharah's mother Ana was part of the original team and would be of comparable age to the male members but she's gone, presumed dead.

Let me guess. D.Va got plastic surgery? Being Korean and all.
Nah, she actually looks her age. She's 19 if memory serves.
A slowed metabolism does NOT make you look younger. It means you take more time to process food. People usually develop this in their 30s and gain weight because food isn't burnt as quickly as it used to. On the flip side, some people remain dangerously skinny because their metabolism runs way too fast to keep anything decently in their system.

I didn't know that, you think I play Overwatch? That's silly man.

Having said that: is being able to replace limbs with newer, arguably better limbs still a disability or merely a stigma?

Blizzard asking deep questions.

Now in the FUTURE IS NOW amazing medical tech I'd call this a disability. But I'd say somebody would still find a problem with how the disabled are represented. Just watch, it's the internet after all.

On a separate tangent, I kinda want to see fat Widowmaker.
Your wish is my command Dragmire!
HA! I instantly recognised JollyJack's ubiquitous style.

OT: As someone who as designed (and really needs to redesign) a female badass nearing 50 I know it can be done. Only in something other than chicken scratch, maybe cat scratch?

Hey, it wasn't my idea.

Take it up with Blizzard.

I really dig the design on Widow's Kiss and you motherfuckers complain that her tits aren't saggy enough?
"Widow's Kiss" is the name of Widowmaker's rifle.

As far as I can tell it doesn't have tits, saggy or otherwise.

It's even crrepier when a person looks 10 but they say he/she is like 400 to justify outting the character in an outfit that is meant to be sexy.

At the end of the day, when you're designing semi serious characters, it's a lot easier to add age to a male and have them remain imposing, than it is to add age to a female and have them feel the same way.
But do they have to be imposing?

Of the current female characters I would say only Pharah and Zarya could be described as imposing. DVa when she's in her mech I guess.

Not all the guys look imposing either. Junkrat, Lucio and Zenyatta aren't. Torbjorn is borderline being small but kinda fierce looking.

She's officially on the autism spectrum according to to the game's writer, though I'm not sure if that's technically a disability since she seems to be your garden variety savant.

Because I bet there a lot of GMILFs playing Overwatch.

Fuck off.
Literally the entire point of the comic is that the complaint isn't about representation. I also love how everyone else in the comments is having a laugh and a good time and you're furious because other people don't think the game is perfect. Examine your life choices, friend.

Life imitates art, or so it appears.
