Are Bosoms in Video Games Offending You?

You may have seen my blogs on Tumblr about the ridiculousness of Large Breasts making a game “Sexist”.  Here they are again for the official release of Dragon’s Crown, where I  play the busty red headed Sorceress. Funny how the same issue came up in regards to the busty red headed Parasoul I played in Skullgirls.

Both women are 2 of the strongest female characters I have ever voiced. So give my blogs another read if you like. But don’t bother me with your nonsense about sexism until you understand it’s true definition.

Blog I posted when the uproar began about the Sorceresses Design

IMO. Pendulous breasts NEVER make a game sexist, a female character who is victimized, oppressed by men, or taken advantage of, or abused is sexist. If a woman is strong and powerful and has pendulous breasts well that’s just awesome AND most women in my family… You sayin the females in my family sexist just cuz we jiggle? Get over it!

Blog I posted on Tumblr about the flak Skullgirls got for being ‘Sexist’

I am the Voice actress who plays Parasoul in the game Skullgirls.  I consider myself very pro active in my participation in women’s rights.   I own the game and I play it regularly.  I don’t feel for one second that this game is sexist. Sexism is not defined by skimpy outfits. Sexism is defined by the dictionary as prejudice, stereotyping, or discrimination, typically against women, on the basis of sex.

This game is not doing any of these things.  unless you believe Skullgirls is creating the stereotype that ass kicking women have tremendously pendulous breasts.  In that case, every anime series can be accused of the same thing.

Not once do these characters have to use their sexuality to get ahead.  They don’t have to say demeaning things lowering their self worth.  They don’t even make sexual references in the dialogue.  They are not in need of men to handle their business. This is a kick ass fighting game using ALL FEMALE CHARACTERS people!

This means Payed work for female voice actors!!! Which made this VA feel empowered after the session!  I got to play a powerful and strong woman in CHARGE!  That is what matters to me.

What is sexist is all the first person shooter games that are made with hundreds of male characters and a pittance of female characters.  Where the female characters are always the same personality and barely get a story line unless its in regards to enhance some male characters story line.   When my male counterpart works 5 weeks on a game while I get 2 days.  That’s sexism…. and I am still grateful for my 2 days work.  That ain’t gonna change people.

Just my opinion

Here’s another perspective on breasts spoken Beautifully by Hollie McNish:

    “Pendulous breasts NEVER make a game sexist, a female character who is victimized, oppressed by men, or taken advantage of, or abused is sexist.”

    I wouldn’t even say that this is sexist. It can be a detrimental part of a character. How else are we going to get interesting stories that you can think about if we ban or avoid eveerything that would potentially offend someone. So i would say that just that on its own when a detrimental part of a character or story is not sexist. Just thrown in without reason might be sexist.

    But in the end we are talking about characters in games, they are not real, their feelings cant be hurt, they cant be really abused, and when they are killed the worst thing that happens is they have to go back to a continue. I just hope that what is happening in videogames wont equal to real crime, because then we would have some serious problems.

    • Dan says:

      Thrown in without reason, it would be gratuitous. Not sexist. It makes people uncomfortable, and the reason that’s bad is that you generally don’t want that kind of emotion associated with your work. There is nothing immoral about gratuitous art, and it’s not a definite rule in that you want to avoid it.
      It’s just a guideline. Like political correctness was in rhetoric.

    Who said Dragon’s Crown is sexist? The sorceress is, however, objectified. It’s not obvious, because she’s “the hero”, but her design (her breasts are not big, they are the dominant part of her body and animations in the game) suggests her only role is to provide eye candy for male gamers (she’s only a tool for getting attention and controversy, therefore she’s a object) and exactly like Lara Croft, she’ll be remembered only as porn material.

    • Dan says:

      She’s the hero? THE hero?

      Please. It’s always been an issue, people judging things they’re ignorant of. Not even bothering to examine it before they make their mind up and voice their opinions. It’s prejudice. You might have heard of some groups known for that. Racists. Sexists. Is that a list you want to put yourself on?

      You do not have some brilliant mind that supersedes context.

    • DevaAshera says:

      I’m sorry, but if she’s an ‘object’ because of her design, then thats just ridiculous. Would a real life woman be an ‘object’ just because she’s sexy?
      Additional, something that almost everyone seems to forget, of course her breasts will be a dominant part of her body, did you not notice the stylized art style of the game? The Fighter and the Dwarf have ridiculously and unrealistically huge muscles (as does the Amazon to a slightly lesser extent), so of course the Sorceress’ bust is going to be similarly large. Its part of the art style.

      Its ridiculous to only focus on a character’s design instead of who they are as a person, characters like the Sorceress, Parasoul, Tifa Lockhart, Chun-Li, and Lara Croft are all sexy and common in hentai, of course, but they are also strong women and have their fans, alot of which are female, believe it or not.

      I happen to have a female friend, who’s not a lesbian, who loves Lara Croft and has for years. The only reason people ‘remember her for the porn’ is because she was one of the very first women prominently featured in a game series that didn’t cover herself in armor like Samus Aran from Metroid, as such, it was a common thing to pervert that. Lara Croft, herself, is a strong female lead.
      Additionally, the latest Tomb Raider re-designed Lara to be less sexualized, but still attractive.

      Which leads me to another point. A game developer isn’t going to design a character they don’t feel is attractive or likable in design.
      While its ultimately their personality that matters, its also good to have a character that is aethetically appealing as well. Having a character be unattractive or plain just isn’t a good thing from a design perspective. Some characters are cute, some pretty, some ‘rugged’, some sexy, some more traditionally attractive, and its this type of diversity that keeps things interesting and from becoming too stale and generic since having everyone look the same is, of course, quite boring and really more detrimental then helpful.

    I don’t even like torpedo tits.

    But at least we can agree that feminists aren’t real people. I would have given them the benefit of the doubt that they meant well and had a kind heart, but I can’t even give them that. How anyone can so willingly and enthusiastically engage in such destructive and divisive Jewish philosophy is beyond me. Feminism is not only the leading cause of misogyny in the world, way behind dogmatic religious institutions, but also of male suicide and females getting preferential treatment in family court.

    Attaching a label to yourself like “feminist” is just sad. It’s even sadder that the “struggle” for women’s rights has shifted from fighting for the right to vote to being able to ruining people’s lives if they say something you don’t like, being asked out on a date or having a door politely held open for you.

    None of the hypocritical androids that are offended by a fictional character having large breasts actually care about the rights of women because if they did, they’d be in the middle east and Africa, campaigning for the prohibition of female circumcision and Islamic punishments where real oppression happens.

  5. DevaAshera says:

    Since I noticed you only had one comment here, I thought I’d add another..most of which is just copy/pasted from my response to it on Twitter..

    Thank you! I try to say the same exact thing every time this pops up, but because I’m physically male (I consider myself female mentally), I get accused of being sexist myself (which, ironically, is sexist to say simply because I’m physically male). I love female characters and want more, I don’t care how they look, as long as they are themselves and not just the ‘token chick’, which usually seems to be written by someone with only a basic understanding of women, usually either writing them as ‘men with tits’, ‘sex crazed bimbos’, or some fusion of such things. Women, like men, have a diverse amount of appearances and personalities. For every Busty Woman like the Sorceress, there’s a petite girl like the Elf, for every seductress like Morrigan Aensland, there’s a serious soldier like Lightning (Final Fantasy XIII), this is true for men as well. For every muscle bound Ryu (Street Fighter), there’s a more thin and lithe Link (The Legend of Zelda), for every serious soldier like serious soldier like Master Chief (Halo), there’s a comical everyman like Luigi (Super Mario Bros.) and of course every combination imaginable.

    I mean, I’m fine with the archetypes like having to rescue Princess Peach from Bowser in Super Mario Bros, since not every woman is strong (though I believe Peach is in her own way, as shown in Super Mario RPG in particular) and sometimes needs to be rescued, but the true can be said of some men. In fact, even Mario, the man who always rescues Princess Peach, has to be rescued sometimes, such as in Luigi’s Mansion, Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon, and Super Princess Peach. And even if Peach is captured, she can still help and take a pro-active role rather then just sitting, awaiting rescue, such as in Paper Mario and Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door where she actively helps Mario by escaping her confines (though she’s usually somewhere nigh impossible to completely escape from, such as a Castle Flying in the Sky and a Moon Base) and assisting Mario with Clues, Important Items, and even Tricking their Enemies.

    Getting back to the point, whenever something like this is brought up, people, such as myself, like to point out how the way a so-called ‘sexist’ character is designed is often similar to how some Real Life women look and/or dress. Just look around, you’ll see women, from busty to flat, wearing outfits that try to show off their bodies. From Cleavage Bearing Tops to Bikinis, and yet these women aren’t ‘sexist’ because, for their bodies, its genetics, and for their outfits, they’re ‘acceptable’
    Bring this up in regards to fictional characters and, suddenly, this doesn’t matter. If a woman has a large bust, its automatically ‘sexist’ because large busts happen to be a fetish many men, and even some women, have, even though it happens in reality, simply because an artist designed her that way.
    The irony of this that some of the people who make these claims claim to believe in God and, if so, could it not be argued that God designed real life busty/curvy women? Would these same people try to claim that God is ‘sexist’ or a ‘pervert’? I really doubt it.

    In fact, its ridiculous to claim that Dragon’s Crown is ‘sexist’ simply because of the Sorceress’ design when the Elf is petite and fairly well covered and a pervasive female fetish is demonstrated with the Dwarf, that being that he is incredibly muscular, as muscular as the Sorceress is busty, if not more.
    However, people who cry ‘sexist’ will claim that this is ‘okay’ because being ripped like that is a ‘male fantasy’. Correct me if I’m wrong, but could it not be argued that being busty/curvy is a ‘female fantasy’ as well.
    In fact, I daresay that this is over simplifying things. I mean, I may consider my mentality ‘female’, but my brother does not. I know for a fact that he hate overly muscular characters and has no desire at all to look like them, so claiming the Dwarf’s musculature is a ‘male fantasy’ in such an absolute is just as ‘sexist’ as they claim the Sorceress’ design is.

    As an artist myself, I think creators should be allowed to share the vision they have for their characters in whatever way they desire. If they think she should be busty, do it, petite, go for it, muscular, by all means, slender, why not?

    It seems to me that people simply like to find something to complain about, taking something at face value rather then trying to understand the character themselves instead of just their appearance.
    Doing that is really no different then assuming a busty girl in clothing we deem to be ‘sexy’ is a slut when she could, in fact, be an intellectual and maybe even shy girl who simply likes that clothing style and has a genetic build that makes her busty.

  6. a says:

    the sexism isn’t in the fact that parasoul has large breasts, the sexism is that you can see her panties 1000 times in her animation

    i have no problem with you voicing the characters and i do appreciate that she’s a woman in command of a military unit but at the same time there are dumb parts of the design that are clearly meant to be fanservice, at the expense of treating the character seriously

    • Dan says:

      The article itself has the definition of sexism stated.
      I suggest you read that part.

      Sex as a selling point is not sexism. Ok, you don’t like it. You think it’s bad and would rather not have it. But it still isn’t sexism. You’re abusing and devaluing a powerful term just to give your personal preference a moral high ground.
      Different people enjoy different things. Are you really so insecure you need to pretend yours are somehow special?

    • Elk says:

      The lead animator for Skullgirls is also a woman.Alex Ahad may have designed her, but apparently it’s not her design that people find sexist (which is a ridiculous concept in and of itself) it’s the way she moves? Even if the way she moves was spearheaded by a woman? She (the lead animator) also made sure to get the breast movement “just right”. Because as a woman she knows breasts aren’t plastic and unmoving.

      Also she has a fairly short skirt, of course you will see her panties. It’s a fighting game, they have to have a large range of movement. Any character in a skirt with a game with that level of movement will give you a ton of panty shots unless they go out of their way to obscure them, which is even more ridiculous than just letting them happen.

      As for taking the character seriously, I hope you wouldn’t just dismiss someone immediately based on what they look like… Especially if they are tough enough and in a position of such importance that they could have anyone executed, or kill them themselves through their own strength. Because leading a military unit, Parasoul could likely do just that. Not taking a character seriously because you can see her panties when she kicks is both an indicator of immaturity and a lack of sound decision making, especially if the panties are the last thing a character sees before getting knocked on their ass from a kick to the head.

  7. Dan says:

    A game with a mainly male cast, or shallow female characters is not sexist. Notice how the definition doesn’t mention equal representation in every single piece of entertainment, market research, or hiring competent writers. Now, on the job opportunity side of things, well, it’s unfortunate. But that’s reality. Sex has an impact on your voice. That makes different actors marketable in different roles. With an uneven representation of the sexes. You can’t solve this without disallowing target audiences. A “NO” is as far I’ll delve into that.

    Now, the stereotyping part of sexism I’ve always found misleadingly ambiguous.
    It’s alright to have flawed characters, hell, you can even have villains. But when they have stereotypical traits or behaviours, it’s supposedly bad. Why? Because of hurt feelings by relating it to reality? Or is it implying that people can’t separate fiction from reality and it thus promotes Stereotyping? I honestly think this interpretation is wrong, and regardless, don’t support its inclusion.
    Now, an interpretation that makes sense to me is shoving people into stereotypes. Stereotyping. It’s done by actual people against actual people, it’s often based on sex, and it resonates and remains consistent with the rest of the definition.

    Disregarding those details, I fully agree with you.

  9. DevaAshera says:

    Its funny how people talk about fanservice, but really only in regards to Male Fanservice.
    You don’t need revealing costumes or sexy body types to have fan service.
    And believe me, its not just men who go crazy and ‘perverted’ over characters, I’ve known girls who get perverted over male characters who don’t seem ‘fan servicey’ but can be for some women. Hell, I’ve known women who get perverted over the same women that are supposedly ‘sexist’

  10. Alex says:

    A story can’t be sexist. It’s just a story. Someone could make a movie that was literally 90 minutes of pregnant women being punched and NOTHING else, and it wouldn’t be sexist.

    Perhaps it would exist BECAUSE someone who WAS sexist wanted to indulge themselves or make a silly point.

    Perhaps it would exist BECAUSE someone wanted to make a serious (albeit pretentious and obtuse) point about sexism from the point of view of a feminist or egalitarian.

    It could exist for any amount of reasons, but all of them only carry the possibility for human beings involved in the production or consumption of a work to be sexist. A work cannot be sexist in and of itself because it is just a work.

    As soon as we begin to decide what works can and cannot exist based on how their creators thought or how they could be interpreted, we open a very dangerous door. We’re still allowed to buy and read Mein Kampf, despite it having been written by Adolf Hitler, and it being partially about the very traits that make him so widely despised as a human being. We’re still allowed to listen to music by Burzum despite it being made by a self-proclaimed racist and convicted murderer, although in this case, the content of the music has nothing to do with any of that. We’re still allowed to watch Hostel, a movie which can be interpreted in many ways ranging from a gratuitous violence fantasy to a post-modern commentary on the horror genre.

    We’re allowed to do these things because of freedom of expression, and of information. We can hate a work. We can hate what we believe it represents, or what it was designed to represent. We can hate the person who made it. But when that hate moves into action against the work, I think we’re defiling something sacred – even if it’s something we hate.

    As a personal example, I despise Ayn Rand as a creator, strongly resent what her works are supposed to represent, and believe that her political ideas can only do true harm to civilized society – but I don’t believe they should be banned or even restricted. Not now, not ever.

    And honestly, I think that’s all that’s important here.

  11. Fohfuu says:

    You know what sexism is? Sexism is that girls are STILL getting looks when they walk into game shops. Sexism is that girls can’t turn on their mic on Xbox Live if they don’t want to be hassled with threats of rape. This isn’t the fault of a single game. It’s the problem of a culture grown from games where there are more females underdressed than not.
    Do you really believe that the sorceress got up in the morning and thought “this is the right dress for what I’m going to do today!”? There’s nothing wrong with sexual women, but think about a typical sexy women in your head, a women who is aware of her sexuality, is proud of it and accentuates it. Do you think she wears the same dress as the sorceress? You seem like a women who is proud of her sexuality. Would you wear it?
    I’m going to take a guess and say no. Because the character is not a female power fantasy, it’s a hetrosexual male sex fantasy.

    • Dan says:

      What does it matter whose fantasy it primarily is?
      There is nothing wrong with having a target audience you are trying to appeal to.

      Being insulted on XBL isn’t the most exclusive issue. I don’t think there’s a single person using it that hasn’t been threatened to be raped by Satan of national TV and a few AM radio stations.

      Jokes aside, being hassled on XBL and getting looks in game stores are hardly significant issues and absolutely not examples of sexism. It may be caused by people with sexist worldviews, but that does not make it the correct course of action to demonize whatever they enjoy. Claiming that the cause for any of them is the attire of fictional women featured in games is simply facetious. The problem would be that you’re on fucking XBL.

      And what makes you think the Sorceress should be typical? That would be quite out of place, don’t you think?

      • fohfuu says:

        Ever heard of pandering? That’s when you sell your game to the lowest common denominator, in this case, by selling on sex appeal. The sorceress does not give any kind of hint that she is proud of her sexuality, that it’s somehow useful to her, or is in any way a choice that she’s made for any reason other than to be something for people (mainly, hetrosexual males gamers) to fap over. And there are very, very few women that do that, in reality. It’s not the primary cause of sexism in gaming (which is probably a product of stereotypes that were never true and a general hatred of both genders), but it is a cause of women going on Xbox live and not being able to put the mic on without getting this: http://fatuglyorslutty.com/category/lewd-proposals/
        Do you really think that’s what happens in normal society? Do you really think that happens to guys? I’ve never, ever heard of a women hitting on a guy who plays games solely because he has a gendered Xbox Live name, but it happens all the time to women. I believe that if we saw more female characters and less female sex objects, women might get treated like more than walking onaholes and maybe just treated like people.
        I’m not asking for prudish characters, and I’m not asking for men to stop being attracted to women. I’m asking for a culture which treats men and women equally.

        • Dan says:

          Yes I’ve heard of it. What is wrong with sex appeal other than it not appealing to you? Sounds rather prude, saying that appealing to sexuality only attracts the lowest denominator. You provide no reason a more puritan approach would result in better treatment either, just a vacuous statement.

          Do you know what would prevent you from being mistreated on XBL? Not using it. If it was one of your friends being an ass, that would not be a friend of yours for long.
          It’s nice to imagine everything being perfect, but that isn’t reality so you just gotta make the best out of it for yourself. You have a problem, and you have the solution available. If you want it solved, solve it, don’t complain about it.

          You chose the anonymous gathering place of the most socially maladjusted pubescent boys. Of course they’ll be awkward, tactless and offensive. They don’t want to, you don’t want them to, but that’s what they are so if you don’t like it go someplace else. The idea they’d become less so by stigmatizing their spanking materiel is ludicrous.

          Your using an example from this group to illustrate the treatment of women in society while simultaneously asking me “Do you really think that’s what happens in normal society?” in regard to it leaves me speechless. I can only hope that’s an honest mistake and not how you usually approach data.

  13. Johannes Ralleigh says:

    I have to comment after reading the comments. And before you folks jump on me for anything I say, in either direction, I would like to clarify two things. First, I am a guy, yes. Second I am a second year BSW student. For you who don’t know this term, I am a senior in College, and my degree is Social Work.

    That stated. I would like to say two important things, that while many women in videogames, historically and to today, are objectified and insulted, this is not the case for all women. So when you get a case where you have well fleshed out, (pardon the pun) characters, than they are just that.

    That sounds wishy Washy. I know. Here’s my point. Look at modern gaming, they are making females not only a reward, (Infamous Samus removing her suit, or Pauline, or Zelda, or a million other female characters that only are there for eye candy and to inspire the hero) they are integral parts of the story.

    Bioshock Infinite is a good example of this. The first thing the game says when you get it, YOU DONT HAVE TO PROTECT THE GIRL. And the second thing it does is it makes her a regular person. I could imagine much the same behavior and reactions coming from a young male character that had to rely on the hero.

    Or fighting games. Let’s talk about the famous armor break in soul caliber games. A. I consider Hilde to be one of the hottest characters in the game and she’s got less revealing than most hero type characters you see, and second, shes pretty damn useful.

    So what am I saying here? Well that sexism, misogyny, abuse and just downright, yeck, factor in gaming is still there. IT’S A MEDIA, SEX SELLS, GET USED TO THE FACT. (getting used to the fact doesn’t mean stop fighting it, just means sex has, and always will, sell. Ancient times to today.) But that complaining any time a sexy character appears, (all kinds of bodies on women I might add, and while I would like to see more realistic spread of female body types in games I am MORE than happy with well-rounded characters. FOR NOW.)

    So yes, do we objectify women in gaming, Yes. Yes we do. And we will for a long time now. Its the learning and growth curve with any medium, women are shafted (again, pardon the pun) until the media develops. The great thing is it does develop.

    In conclusion. Stop bitching about something, especially if you’re gonna wind up buying it anyway. I know its hard, as a fellow nerd I KNOW its hard not to complain, but might I suggest another method? Logical discourse. Talk about what the game and games are doing right, and what they can do to improve. That is how companies change, when their customers want something a little different.

    In other words, stop being anonymous whiners on the net and instead become activists. Spread your word respectfully, argue your point, respectfully, and finally, when someone disagrees with you, don’t flame them. Just relax and make your points and allow them to come to their own conclusions. You might find its more effective than you think.

    Now I am sounding preachy. Sorry. But gaming holds a place in my heart and this debate is a shouting match.

    *Sources : Experience, Education, and a rather large interest in the social science of media.

    PS. However please, if you find any points in my argument to be false, please, pleasepleasepleasepleaseplease, be respectful. I will give no response to rude insult mongering, however I am more than happy to respond to rational human beings. Thank you for the time.

    PPS.Also, I appear to be misinformed and coming off in defense of misogyny here which is far from the case. I want more realism in games, personality and physicality both, for both sexes. And hell, more empowerment for homosexuals and those with varying gender identities and sexual Identities. I just can’t stand the stupidity on both sides of this argument anymore.
    PPPS. Finally, I know I know. I am making one last comment. I am so sorry for the puns, both intentional and unintentional. I… I can’t control them. They just grow, constantly… It’s a serious problem, no seriously though, not making fun of a serious discussion.

  14. Fakename Dudeman says:

    Aside from the fact that you seem to be completely ignoring how excessive sexualization of a character of either gender undoubtedly opens the door to blatant sexual objectification(which is arguably the most common–though some would say the least offensive–form of sexism), I can definitely agree with most of what you’ve said on this subject. Based on one unfortunate snippet, however, it’s still clearly that you’re clearly nothing but an ignorant piece of shit. Contrary to the idiotic bullshit that a worthless shit stain on the community like yourself would naturally be wont to spout, the suggestion that “every anime series” can being accused of having women with “tremendously pendulous breasts” is nothing but a load of blatantly fucking untrue bullshit, and the sort of inane spiel that only an equally inane dumb fuck that clearly doesn’t know shit about the masterful medium. In fact, there hundreds upon thousands of anime series that are entirely void of these ridiculous over-embellishments, contrary to the shit you spouted in this likewise shitty article. Considering this fact, it goes without saying that the suggestion herein was nothing but a load of utterly false, ignorant bullshit.

    Shut the fuck up and educate yourself before you spout such horrendous horeshit again. Failing that, though, just go fuck your slutty-ass bitch mother, contract her MANY stds, and die dipshit; do us all a favor.

    I’ll be taking my permanent leave of this shit post and site, so whatever undoubtedly bullshit replies you or anyone else tries to send my way will never reach me. Deal, dumb fuck; this is our last contact. You and your idiocy lose, i and the facts I state win.

    • Queazy says:

      I could not agree more! Have you seen how they blatantly sexualize both the fighter and the dwarf? The fighter has an incredibly unrealistic stature, impossibly broad shoulders with tiny head + legs, that would be impossible for any man to obtain, yet his face looks like it is a pretty boy model. And just look at the dwarf! He parades the entire game without a shirt, his muscles bulge with ever step to twice their normal size. This game absolutely proports such blatant sexualualization (which is arguably the most typical–though some would say the least abusive–form of sexism). I shudder to think of any poor boy out there who plays this video game and thinks he has to look like either the dwarf or the fighter as the male standard of beauty.

      Honestly, it obscene how one can look at this game and not call out its caricatures for what they are. I hope one day we can rid the world of such blatant objectification. After all, which is more important? Judging by a person’s appearance or by its character?

    The comments on this page have restored my faith in humanity. THIS is what the conversation about women in games should be about. Common sense. Facts. Balanced arguments. Not double standards, not blind rage, not ‘ooo, big boobs so sexist’. People in the comments here have demonstrated how this industry will move past this ‘sexism in gaming’ phase. With conversation, with relevant debate. I’m sick of people acting like any form of artistic variance involving female characters is ‘sexist’ or ‘objectification’. There’s a serious lack of maturity on the side of people who THINK they’re being fair to women when all they’re really saying is ‘big boobs are bad, women shouldn’t be skimpy, people can’t tell fiction from reality and will look down on women cause of what they wear’ ¬_¬. But I don’t want to rant. Alot of people here have said pretty much everything I could have said. Thank you all!!! And thank you Erin Fitzgerald for being a beacon of common sense in a sea of stupidity and double standards.
