concerns about the oversexualisation of women

Widow and tracer in skin tights. It's like you are trying to attract lonely young males to the forum by way of sexual imagery. Perhaps more butt genji for the ladies.

Just a humble man's opinion.

concerns about the oversexualisation of women

Postby LadyLabby » Wed Sep 07, 2016 1:44 pm

Most video-games with female characters focus on the feminine physical quantities heavily. So the bust, waist, hips and legs have massive emphasis. Whether it's clothing that barely covers the chest, or skin tight leggings, it's all a very common theme. (Except Mei with her puffy clothes, but even then you can see the size of her bust, and even old Ana with her robes and stuff.)

As long as players don't think that all woman in the real world look like that, flawless with a big rump/chest, then I see nothing wrong with it. Games are fictional, and characters can appear as the developers desire.

Just my opinion as one of the many woman gamers out there. I'm sure a males point of view may differ from mine.

concerns about the oversexualisation of women

Thanks for the input on this! Initially, I was going to just leave the background as is, but even before this was brought up, I got to thinking about a way to rotate backgrounds between random characters and maps on a daily or weekly basis.

The only thing is I haven't gotten around to making the damn things yet. Keep your eyes peeled, and maybe someday soon, you'll see something different there. :)

To be honest I didn't even take notice, also I agree with LadyLabby they are fictional just like most guys in reality don't have six packs and a ripped muscular frame.

If there several people who are uncomfortable I don't see a problem changing the background.

I was kind of taking the piss, but looks like you have changed the appearance overall anyway.

As a rather large individual, I find it extremely offensive that this post has been generalised to just the oversexualisation of females. As roadhog is a rather hyper-sexualised figure and depicts my body type rather well I find it extremely offensive he has not been mentioned in this thread.

Hereby I am writing with great concern that roadhog is allowed to freely show his nipples.
I can clearly see mercy, symmetra and pharah on the background screen, but again this is just another example of a female dominated world.
I am requesting roadhog be easily visible on the background to help balance the male to female ratio and show some much needed respect for the overweight male race.

If several people who are uncomfortable, you shouldn't see a problem in changing the background.
