84 pages... 84 pages in less then a DAY and still no red post? I could understand if this thread had been going for a month and had gone under the radar, but you'd think a thread that warrants this many responses in less then 24 hours could at least garner a "were working on it" response from the red's instead of just being ignored or unnoticed.
I agree with this. I wasn't expecting to, but really, female armor was funny when I was 12, but it's gotten old now. When I'm playing sivir, I should be playing a grim, serious warrior of battle, not this playboy pretender. There are female characters that should be explicitly sexy or temptress, because it is a reality, and it's interesting, but having every female be like that... is kind of dull.
Thanks for a well written argument. I don't know if I understand what your point is though. Do you want more male champions that you find attractive? I don't think they set out to make unattractive male characters (for the most part) and attractiveness is subjective so you will never please everybody with any one design. Because I know you've said you don't want Riot to go back and change the skins and characters that already exist. Also the age argument is a societal issue because young women and older men are often more desirable, with the men being desirable for their status or wealth. This isn't cut and dry but it seems to be common enough in American culture to be a trend at least. (I am not trying to say all women are selfish gold diggers.)
Regarding the harassment of women on LoL. First I don't know why it is anyone's business that you or another player were a woman. It is bs that you feel you need to hide your gender and even worse that some people are fine treating you as less than a man in the game or in your real life. That being said the community in LoL is full of jerks, it does not excuse their actions but there are many mean and angry players that insult anyone.
The real problem I see is that no one actually seems to have a solution to the harassment of people online for issues of gender, race etc. Outside of the community or the company strictly policing it. It seems to me LoL has too many players and Riot certainly doesn't seem to have the motivation to police these issues. So I have no idea what the fix is.
I stated this after the post but i shall put it up here too as you will be reading up here first i suppose. I am not arguing for one specific side or supporting one side over the other. I am standing on top of the fence looking down on both sides to gain the best position in the argument.
The statements i make are those that are bolded AND underlined in the quote.
I had to split this into two parts since it was over 30k characters
