Well ... You claim that as if all the female champs in LoL would be "posing like that".... are they really ALL doing it? No they don't...


No, my claim had nothing to do with whether ALL female champions pose like that. The fact that they do it with Fiora is stupid regardless of whether or not they do it with, say, Evelynn (which they do, by the way).

You might be a person who doesn't like "posing models" - respect bro - but most of the men do like it...

- And by the way your link about "psychiology" is dead... :S


Replace the asterisks in the link with "sex".

And showing me one article wouldn't prove anything at all actually - one survey often shows what the "creator" wanted it to show.... So it is totally subjective depending on which side makes that certain survey...


There's plenty more where that came from. LMGTFY. Use your brain--don't make me serve you everything on a silver platter, and then reject it out of blind skepticism. GO FIND OUT FOR YOURSELF.

But you don't even have to try to "dig up" more surveys - the real life proves my point:
If s3x wouldn't sell or if too much s3x would be harmful then why is everything nowadays advertised by posing hot chicks - even cars and neckties for men, ice creams, suntan lotions, music, films, games,,,, everything.....


You mean, like Geico's gecko? Progressive? Dos Equis? Many of the most recognizable, and therefore successful, marketing campaigns have nothing to do with throwing more nekkid wimmenz at the audience.

Anyhow this whole debate is like a conversation between a "liberalist" and a "conservative".... we will never convince each other and you will never admit that nowadays the "liberalist trend" is dominating, or even if you admit it, you'd only call us "degenerated mongrels" and you are - I guess - the "pure-blooded guardians of the old traditions"....


Don't presume to know my politics. Don't use cheap meaningless rhetorical tricks like "Even if we keep debating, you'll never admit I'm right." Don't poison the well.

You're not a vanguard of the liberal tradition, or even a 'degenerate mongrel'--don't flatter yourself. You're just an idiot.

Seems Riot devs watched too much porn when they were young.

You assign motive to Riot without evidence. You are assuming Lee Sin is muscular because it makes him look like a fighter while Sona is not muscular because it makes her attractive. If flat-chested, no muscle men were considered attractive, then Lee Sin would have less muscle.

Also, it isn't fair to suggest none of the "sexified" female champs represent the fighter. Ashe, for example, has well-toned muscular arms (you can see it best in the Sherwood skin).

women will always lose to men in a fight so what does it matter, If we were being realistic here women would not be in this game, or any game that they contend with males. Name one physical trait women have that is stronger, faster, or more powerful than a mans. You cant because it doesnt exist. Now there might be a woman which if she trained hard enough could hurt a puny man. But given all things equal the man will always dominate physically. (also mentally most of the time, IE name one world changing invention/discovery that a woman has made-ever.)

I say all this to say, Since we are not being realistic. Why wouldnt i want to play as a beautiful woman with huge ****, rather than a bull ****????
