Nah, you're not sexist, its just the way society has conditioned us on gender roles

We perceive feminine clothing as denoting weakness, so a male in female clothing is weakening their own position

I go based off my own experiences most the girls i know have no knowledge of league of legends or anything beyong gta4, mortal kombat, or super mario. While I can find some game in common if I were to talk to another guy. Im not going based off world population(more girls in the world) Im going based off those who actually play games guys have usually had a bigger ratio.

I go with statistical data myself. It's a bit more reliable since the 20 or so females in my age group that I'm friends with aren't exactly a big enough pool to get an accurate view of all females.

This, a thousand times this. Let there be an option in the client to "Agree with IronStylus's artistic vision for Female Champions" and have all the models for females replaced by the ghosts from Pac Man.

We could have skins you could buy too!

Armored Burqa: Makes metallic clanking noises as they move around the map, but no visible change.

High Heels Burqa: 3 inches taller, but otherwise looks the same.

Different Colored Burqa: Game randomly picks a shade every match for this skin!

The "You didn't know it was a guy under this" Burqa: Yes, Ezreal likes em too! This would show just how equal we all are.

Might make identifying the champions a bit harder, but we can put the champ's name as a subtitle under the summoner's name, no big deal.


Clearly, you have summarized everyone's points in a hilariously sarcastic and yet accurate way. In no way have you misrepresented the core position whatsoever.

Or wait maybe it is just another case of.....

I know we are talking about over sexualized champions but i really want to thank IronStylus for Diana. The Motoko, from Ghost in the Shell, and overall Claymore feel to it was so much more than I could ever ask for. Even the pose is very reminiscent of Ghost in the shell.

Keep up the good work Sir.
