Female Comic Characters Rage
My veiw on how women are misrepresented in Comics.
The problem isn’t that these characters or drawings exist. The problem is that when 99% of the female characters, weather it be comics, movies, or video games are designed to look like porn stars and the ones that aren’t, can be counted on the fingers of one hand. It’s not terribly surprising that women might not be too happy about it. Not to mention the implied attitudes that come with it when your only choices for a gaming avatar are “Buster and Thong”and “Battle Bikini.” It sends the message that “you are only welcome here as a sexual object. If you do not meet this criteria, we have no use for you.”
Nobody is saying that there can’t be sex-kittens, voluptuous pin-ups or fetishized characters. But leaving them out with realistically proportioned females in practical costumes who aren’t there to be rescued, raped, murdered, tied to the train tracks or the prize for beating the main boss isn’t taking away your rights of preventing you from enjoying the game.
