None of the "sexy" female champions in this game would be allowed anywhere remotely near a PG movie, nor would they be allowed to walk into public wearing what they are wearing. Why should we allow it in our video games? Yes, it's a game, but pixels being pixels, isn't pornography a rampant epidemic across the globe? Aren't those just pixels on a computer? This is nothing more than soft core pornography right?
Yes. Thank you.

lol if anything I'm promoting survival skills and the intelligence + skills to hunt.

I'm sorry if your kid would starve for fear of hurting a squirrel
Yet in your match history you have two games as male champions. You must not mind how sexualized the females in this game are after all.

While I don't really feel a clothed but sexual photo of a V-game character is enough to warrant a freakout, I do feel taking down a giant poster or forcing a change of background into something more boy-appropriate is warranted.

Near naked is too close to naked. But hey, if we're promoting straight guys, why can't we promote gay guys and little girl panty tingling? Seems fair to create some really kinky and sexy guys

Lol. You have to understand.

They also don't know how to use the computer to customize it correctly. So the Syndra picture was enlarged and the centered on her boobs. Her face was barely even showing. It's was all boobs. So you'd better expect me to edit that out.

It's not like I turned her into a nun. I just made it to where that wasn't the FIRST thing you saw when you turned on the computer.

Also in my match history on this character games are from extreamly long ago. Obviously this isn't an alt account and match history/lolking have a lot to do with this topic.

Nice try.

More sexy and near-naked men. No shirt, no clothes, just a loincloth and slender build with barely visible muscles. Make sure we can see some kind of hint at a *****. Gotta make sure it's like seeing nipples. (cough)

(Edit: Maybe if men see the weewee in plain view and feel a tad disgusted, they might see why alot of women feel the same)

Knowing Riot, if you had turned her into a nun they'd find a way to make it a "sexy nun."

I'm okay with this.
As long as the sexy nun doesn't have fake 48 FF breasts for no reason.

I don't know where you live but girls frequently dress this revealingly where I live... and PG movies do have scenes with females in bikinis or underwear.

LoL is not equivalent to a PG movie. All of these characters would be a-ok in a PG-13 movie, which is what this game is essentially rated. T for Teen.

Be a responsible parent and learn what ESRB are ratings. Don't force companies to parent for you.

2 seconds on Google and I had this information.

I think if the human body, including sexual organs and characteristics, were treated as less of a big deal, we wouldn't have the problem of Riot's character designs or all the people screaming "DON'T TAKE AWAY THE BOOBIES YOU EVIL MAN!"
As I said before. Those boys also know little about computers so the picture they used of Syndra was much too large for their desktop resolution. It was enlarged and it centered in on her boobs. So of course I took 5 min out of my day to make it more appealing and that not be the first thing to look at when the computer is turned on.

I think it's better to rise children with healthy attitudes about sexuality than to just say "NO BOOBIES EVER (OR AT LEAST UNTIL YOU'RE MARRIED)." Pornography is not inherently bad, and there is now growing acknowledgement and acceptance of women watching and liking porn as well (***-positivity).

Also if a woman did walk around in public looking like Syndra or Janna or whoever, they should not be judged (beyond wondering how badly their neck must hurt if they're dressed as Syndra), harassed, or assaulted for it because it is their choice to do so. That's different from someone just designing a character to look that way. People don't seem to understand that.
