I did it and I saw the result. I feel bad about it. But when jack ass A blows a gasket over it I sort of laugh at his stupidity and move on with my life because at the end of the match, it's a game, and I didn't lose anything I can't gain back. Also, I am pretty secure with my strengths, failings, color and orientation so quite honestly, anyone who wants to trash talk me may as well be talking to a brick wall holding a pink umbrella. That's about as ridiculous as they look doing it.

Most guys are stoic like this. Women are not. Women are in general (not 100%! just generally) by nature insecure. They're emotionally vulnerable. Easily hurt, offended, depressed. So when a guy goes off on them attacking their sexuality, that sticks with them. It bothers me when it happened to my girlfriend of course but I would, and do, feel as strongly about it when it happens to the other girls I very much enjoy playing this game with. Society isn't going to change itself. Society is, as pathetic as it sounds, dictated by media. Media dictates that women are *** objects. *** objects don't have feelings or play games... right?

I personally think that average looking gamergirls are hot but I'm alright with being a minority here...
Congratulations - you just set women back 100 years.

second bold - NECKBEARD. NECKBEARD. NECKBEARD.

What makes OP think females will be excited to see the illusive Lady Gragas?
You clearly have no idea what you're talking about. Gragas is a bawss. Especially his Gragas esq. skin (what a refined, classy gentleman) or his Vandal skin.

Haha, I agree with that.

Not even a women and I felt offended he said that, as he implies women are vulnerable creatures who need protection and guys are the take a licking and keep on ticking kind of folks.

Thing is, I'm sure some people have had stuff said to them in game that's gotten to them regardless of gender.

I agree, OP, but I want it taken to a different conclusion.

Where the heck are my Beach Boy Garen and Darius skins, Riot?

Grow up and shut up.
Sounds to the the OP is some pseudo feminist... changing the ways in which female characters are portrayed is retarded. I guess Victoria Secret or makeup companies like L'Oreal Paris should start picking other women to advertise their products? Guess the Victoria Secret model is too revealing, and making other women not desire those clothes? You get my point.

Victoria's Secret is advertising LINGERIE. You realize this, right? Riot is creating warriors who come from various backgrounds.

Edit: also, feminism is about equality and treating people with respect, don't be a ****tard.

@ Rachel, you did construct your thread supremely. and i agree with you on a lot of your points. im just curious. at what percent of adult female characters would you find them to not be sexualized( could be worded better but it eludes me right now) where is the right balance. 35 % 50 % 70 % personally. i would like more diversity. but i think adding to much of barbarian women or to much void women ect is a bad thing but there is a balance and i think riot can find that. personally i play the game and enjoy it i don't think anything riot has currently is something to get offended by. but im not opposed to a little diversity either

Can we get a witch champion?
