Actually, plenty of girls play this game. They're fine with it. Why aren't you OP? We shouldn't have to cater to your special demands.

while the portrayal of females is an actually important topic in LoL, the OP is being overly confrontational about the topic and flaming more so than promoting active discussion..

You expect radfem SJWs to bring logic to the table and not just their feelings? Because you really shouldn't.

OP seriously implied that girls wouldn't be attracted to a guy built like Tryndamere.

I feel that the OP hasn't been nearly as confrontational as most of the commentators. =/ Most of the comments themselves simply do not promote active discussion, whereas the OP stated in the original post that he / she wanted it to be a discussion.

OP: This is well written and needs to be addressed. I share your concerns.

The anatomy of humanoid females in this is also impossibly flexible in some splash art; if you can see both their chests and butts then there has been a deliberate attempt to sexualize the character. No one can bend that way.

I agree somewhat with some of your points. However, if every female champion looked like Kayle (who is your only acceptable female champion apparently) with full armor and "practical" attire, this would be an incredibly boring game. By the way, every game/movie/commercial/TV show etc. portrays females this way. Ask yourself why.

sadly, this kind of topic sort of promotes flaming.

as is though, even if the OP did state it, he/she more or less just bashed on female character design whilst doing little to look at the other sides of the arguement.

I don't disagree that it's not an issue, but the way in which it was handled wasn't the correct way to handle it.

Not a discussion when OP is already predisposed to a position and doesn't even care about the lore about some of the skins she's complaining about. Battle Bunny Riven and Caitlyn, for example.

Without getting extensively into the feminist elements of the discussion, there's lots to be improved about champion visual design, male AND female.

Shaella is not actually a girl. Just putting that out there.

You better not ever walk down the street because you'll see alot of curves.

What are you a quaker? All women should wear dresses to cover thier elbows and knees. Get real man its the 21st century.

Women have no right to dictate a game that is male dominated. Not to mention an industry that is male dominated.
