Can we please have a mature discussion about Zyra's nudity?

The fact is that we don't necessarily think it's problematic for women to be portrayed as 'sexy.' But we do think it is problematic when nearly all images of women depict them not simply as 'sexy women' but as passive objects for someone else's sexual pleasure

In the current environment, teen girls are encouraged to look sexy, yet they know little about what it means to be sexual, to have sexual desires, and to make rational and resistible decisions about pleasure and risk within intimate relationships that acknowledge their own desires.

Zyra is not a teenaged human girl who lives on Earth.

You are talking about the static art, that is meant to be eye-catching, for an in-game model that you haven't seen yet.


There is no basis for discussion at this point.

Also, @ this, Zyra seems like a badass. It's not possible to have a badass female she is not sexy, like, it just doesn't happen.

She isn't human, she can be mostly related to a Dryad(or other "nature spirits/guardians&quot, and most have been depicted as naked in art for the longest time.

If girls think they should look like a tree nymph, then that's their problem, and might end up with serious head trauma from running into trees, trying to find the one they are bound to.


Seriously, I don't care if she's naked or not, but if you have such a huge problem with it, then look at inspiration for characters like this. Demons, spirits, angels, inhuman beings have all been portrayed as naked for the longest time, no one cared, and no one should care.

I can be serious for a brief moment.

Around the world girls as young as 5 years old are kidnapped from their families and forced into *** trafficking where every day and night they are raped by multiple men as a form of business. They are drugged and beaten and forced to live in unhealthy conditions. A good number of the women you see in porn videos are actually some of these women who are kidnapped and used as someone's commodity.

I do not in any way condone teenage girls dressing to look sexy because what they view as being "sexy" I find to be trashy. In my opinion, modesty is sexy. Personally I am attracted to women who are modest and have a love for others.

The League forums are not the best place to hold these discussions because of the audience that you will be speaking to, but if you want to discuss this issue with me feel free to add me in game.
