It wouldn't have lasted.

i am ALL FOR civil, rational discussion. Where people actually read others' posts, learn from them, people might even change their opinions who knows!

But no, a very large portion of this forum is pretty extreme and irrational and would not take kindly to it

Women in media look that way because thats what sells, thats what makes money. Its more visually pleasing to look at someone who is attractive and in shape than it is to look at someone who isnt. Going deeper into that, se.x sells. Noone expects you or any woman to look like angelina jolie, I dont expect my wife to keep her coochie shaved or get implants because her breasts arent big enough. I love my wife the way she is.

If you think women feel pressure from the media to look a certain way, then would the same not apply for men?

The same way I look at a Victoria Secret ad with a girl who has amazing breasts and a perfect body, Im sure my wife looks at a shirtless guy with a rock hard 6 pack perfect body on a mens underwear ad.

Tryndamere, Pantheon and Varus are inexcusably sexualized

And you're laughable for trying to call someone gay, because considering the LARGE broad amount of subject matter in considering someone's feelings and how some people find some things offensive it mystifies me why you would say something that stupid and inconsiderate

Go home Kid, this is not your place

There's actually been a fair number of threads in GD about character representation that were pretty civil and rather cool. It can be a bit of a heated topic, but I don't think the forum is inherently unable to discuss it. It's just a little easy to be acerbic on the Internet.

it makes a lot of sense to choose the gear
default skins should reflect their battle-clothing
whereas alternate skins can choose minidresses and battle bunnies

In fairness, most of those didn't start by saying "everyone who disagrees with me shut the hell up."

If we want a civil discussion, I think the well was poisoned from the outset.

Pretty good point

I think it affects young girls.
Naive girls.
It sounds offensive, but it is true. Girls who don't know any better.

I could give 2 ****s if someone doesn't think I'm Angelina Jolie standards...but someone 5 years younger probably doesn't have the same attitude.

I think it does apply to men too. I know there is stress on guys to look a certain way. Until they hit a certain point (like I did) when you realize, who gives a ****? People are gonna like you for you or they're not. Lions don't sweat the opinions of sheep knawhatimean?!
