GamingThread Why women criticise sexualised character designs (READ OP)
Reason User warned: comparing this community to fake feminist trolls on Twitter, mocking their concerns, accusing them of hurting their cause
EDIT after mod warning: It was really not my intention to offend nor mock anyone. I'll stay out of the thread from now on. If someone wants to reach me about it, please use MPs This, and the are the kind of hyperbole i'm talking about. Risque designs doesn't make a game a . Taking on Xenoblade 2, wich is the hot topic today, i can't help but thinking that those are really the designs the artists had in mind, gross or don't, and Monoloth/Nintendo wanted to respect that, and maybe, just there's no ulterior motives behind them. As far as i read about the game it seems to be well written and there's not much focus, if any, on sexualizing the characters whatsoever, wich would contradict the claim of a game and characters designed to pander only a determined demographic. You know, there's a spanish twitter account created by the right-wing forum forocoches posing as a feminist twitter account and dedicated to post ridiculous and overblown statements with objective of hurting the cause. This thread reminds me to that account sometimes, to the point of making me question the validity of some claims. There's also the claims that imply that only sexist otakus buy those games, wich maybe should be taken in account too.
