OH MY GOSH
Thank you very much, and a happy 4/13 to you too!!! :D
Did you hear? Sadly Hussie did not post the final update, but instead a new webcomic called “Paradox Space”!!! I just posted a whole rant on it so you can look at that rather than me repeating it all pointlessly here! XP
Really? I didn’t know he made another webcomic!
That’s interesting how he’s managing to do a project like that. I guess that might be the extension to Homestuck since it includes the backstories.
Does that mean that Homestuck is still getting a proper ending?
yeah thats NESS !!
did anyone else notice this?
No that’s the new leaf villager
NESS confirmed 4 smash!!!
But that’s new leaf villager

[sleep-over voice] are you awake
[sleep-over reply voice] yeah
[regrettable sleepover invitee voice] you guys SHH
[confused sleep-over voice] what is the meaning of life
[annoyed sleep-over voice] dude shut up
[sleep-over host voice] you guys be quiet my moms gonna hear us
[unknown voice] you kids wanna buy some drugs
These are all good points.
But we also have to understand and take into account the lack of female characters in games and the even bigger lack of unsexualized female characters in video games. You bring a lot of logic to what the heel design is, but think about how others are seeing it. Many know Zero Suit Samus as one of the few awesome female lead characters not sexualized in their game (excluding the oldest ones which people are less likely to play in our decade then the GameCube series). Seeing heels added can certainly bring up the fear of losing this character like many other female characters. So I can see the concern and annoyance, but with the practicality of the heel design, I am fine with the decision.
Well here’s the thing
Most in video games are sexualized, its a given for Japanese games were everyone looks like a super model.
And don’t claim hot guys are “male power fantasy” I’ve seen enough Fangirls gushing over how hot Link or Cloud is to tell women find the guys sexy.
Don’t worry this is a Smash game its not canon. Samus in canon as only went into combat in the Zero suit twice and one was because the Power Armor was stolen.
The rest of the games she takes off her armor basic on how well the player did, ie rewarding you by showing her body.
Samus WAS ALWAYS “sexualized” she just hides it under the armor.
Arguments that this is a given aren’t helpful at all. Sexualization is harmful and dehumanizing. We can’t accept it as just a given or we won’t change anything.
Finding some male characters attractive or sexy isn’t the same thing as sexualizing a character. And male characters are usually more “male power fantasies”, not sex objects. There’s a difference again in being “sexy” versus a sex object.
Being canon or not changes absolutely nothing regarding whether or not Samus is or isn’t sexualized.
And again, her being sexualized in the past is NOT a good thing. We are trying to change that. That is no justification for or against the boots.
REMINDER: Any more asks about this subject go in the chatbox!
Ok I thought you were same but clearly you’re just another Sjw who can’t handle anything remotely better looking than you, or just want attention.
Because you know women are clueless things with body issues so bad even a fictional character is bad right?
It’s not like there’s dozens of female artist who will talk about how they enjoy drawing sexy women. Or that poll dancing is seen as empowering because it makes the woman feel strong and sexy. Nope
Again with this power fansties bullshit. I’ve seen enough women clearly treat male characters as sex objects to know they do it too, maybe even more than guys if all the fanfic are a sign.
Shut the fuck up you’ll forget all about this “issue” in a week and move on to the next one.
Now that right there is out of line. I have been trying to be nothing more than respectful and rational. You say I’m “just another Sjw who can’t handle anything remotely better looking than you, or just want attention” seriously? That is sad. I am a human being. And I am a female gamer. I am sick and tired of a culture that continues to push misogynist bullshit into everything from careers to video games. This isn’t about me. This isn’t about getting attention. This is about education. This is a serious issue. These are toxic views. The amount of oversexualization plus the fact that half the time it’s treated as nothing. Are you fucking kidding me? Do you know how many girls I have seen hurt by this? Everyday the amount of harm that this does to females of all ages? I’m not sure you do. You’d rather insult me than educate yourself.
Women are definitely not clueless. But you know how many millions of women and GIRLS deal with body issues? Have you had to look at a sister or a best friend who think they are ugly and that their bodies are unnatural before even finishing high school? The oversexualization of women hurts women. And it hurts men too. Because they grow up thinking and spouting stuff like you and worse.
Yes of course there are women who enjoy drawing sexy women. Never said that was a problem. How the hell is pole dancing relevant here? I never ever said I had a problem with pole dancing. If women choose to pole dance and feel good doing it more power to them.
Men are definitely seen as sexual in the eyes of many women but don’t even say it’s more so than how women are viewed. Do you know how few female characters there are in the first place? Do you know how small the diversity range is for female characters compared to males? The scale on which oversexualization happens to females is far greater than what happens to male characters. Ask any woman how much oversexualization she has to deal with on a day to day basis compared to men. Having this in video games makes this worse. Media affects real life.
And I can see how little you actually care and know about this issue. You don’t even consider it a real issue. You might forget about this in a week. I guess you have that luxury. But I won’t forget. And I don’t have the luxury to ignore it because as a woman I live the effects of these distorted views daily.
You let me know when those “oversexualizations” of male characters contribute to how safe you are when you walk around at night. You let me know when they massively affect the self esteem of millions of people. When they contribute to thousands of eating disorders.
Tell me how this isn’t an issue? When studies show that women who play as oversexualized females are more likely to objectify their own bodies in a similar way and are more accepting of rape myths — believing that women who are victims of sexual assault have themselves to blame.
Get more educated on this issue. I know I will. And then talk.
Your logic is twisted. A hot woman with character depth isn’t by definition sexualized. Character depth is great. Being attractive doesn’t make a character sexualized. Sexualized is making a character a sex object. She is drawn and made to be a sexual object for guys. Either in her dress and/or actions. Usually practicality is thrown out the window int order to focus on how “sexy” they can make her and to appeal to the male gaze. That is bad.
Male characters are not made in this way. They are made as characters first, treated as characters by the creators. Fangirls finding them attractive and some people ignoring their personality for shipping purposes has nothing to do with sexualization. The games themselves don’t sexualize them. And people who ignore their personality just to drool over them are in the minority. People do the same with girl and guy characters of every fandom. It is the minority and it is again not the same thing as being sexualized in a game. Male power fantasies are male characters made to fulfill male fantasies of strength, power, being the hero, etc. Which also tends to include looking what they think are attractive to girls. But it is not sexualized for girls. They are aimed for guys.
