Boobs

   0


Listing every issue ever would keep us here for the next week or so, and this isn't to say that there's no room for fan service. However, the assumption that large breasts equal sex appeal is one that is just incorrect. It's how busty women are showcased, dressed, and portrayed that sexualizes them, but their existence doesn't mean they are inherently sex objects. If the goal is to truly rally for more diversity in videogame characters (regardless of gender!), then the outrage needs to be aimed in the right direction. Tell Square-Enix that they can have their pervy moments over female characters, but overdoing it with arbitrary close-ups of butts and boobs is what is insulting and off-putting. Encouraging diversity doesn't mean discouraging the majority being represented. If anything, we should be applauding games that can feature strong, busty characters whose inclusion are not for the sole reason of marketing or sex appeal.

Let's get rid of the shame in liking boobs. It doesn't have to mean you're a pervert, and it doesn't mean that you value a person's personality less than appearance. By admitting this, the arguments for less boobage will actually have more weight and developers can't write them off as mastrophobia. Tell the industry that you like boobs, but it'll take a lot more than that to win your money.

About JoyfulSanityone of us since 5:05 PM on 07.09.2012

I'm a guy who likes to write about videogames. Sometimes in funny ways and sometimes in artsy ways. You'll just have to read my blogs to find out the difference between the two!

I'm in my mid 20s, I'm from the United States, and this is currently the most productive thing I'm doing with my B.A. in English. I also tend to write really long comments in response to people that start to read like mini-blogs. I apologize in advance for the walls of text.

Also, I like to have fun. I write about controversies sometimes because I get compelled, but I much prefer using caps lock to convey my love for quality RPGs.

If you like my content on Destructoid, you can find even more of it by going to my website!

I'm currently playing the following:
The Elder Scrolls Online
The Infinite List of Kemco RPGs
Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel
Ys (Any and all of them)
Final Fantasy XIV
