Why do we put fictional characters in a scenario where they can be hurt or endangered? Do we enjoy the fantasy of them beating all odds and blowing up their egos? We’re going deep and dark, if you’re not up for it i suggest you skip this topic.
I was talking to my cousin the other day.. and he told me that in the movie “The Edge of Tomorrow” the hero should have died instead of surviving and that they were following a western trend of positive endings. He argued that movies now a days should have more variety for creativity’s sake. He also made a statement that a lot of people are stupid and that’s why he’s cynical about relying on people.To that i have to say true to an extent but we should always think positive and hope for the change we want to see in people. But what about things like rape culture? do we want to be creative and go in that direction? Oppression of women, the abuse drawn towards them, and the sexualized images of them in media. Are women made to be sexy? if yes. Than why is it we have this problem about sexualized characters? Is it because of someone else’s event in their life that traumatized them? Yes. Their hardship has caused a concern and open awareness of a subject (rape) that affects our standards for today’s media. Rape is evil there is no doubt in that, but this blurred line has been around since the idea of sex has been around. The idea of no consent means yes in a male dominant man’s mind. Whereas a man who considers a woman’s feeling is not a gentleman but a pussy or one who thinks like a woman.
The question still remains. Do we have the right to put our fictional characters into a dangerous situation? Is there a moral code that should be followed in a fictional world? Should we apply standards to our video games and movie scenarios to make it PG clean for everyone of all ages? We have ratings for movies and games already for gods sake. If you want PG friendly stuff go watch a PG movie/game. Hypersexualization is a made up word. It’s either sexy or it isn’t. If girls weren’t suppose to sexy why does sex sell in the model economic world? In the fashion industry, modeling, design, movies, games – even the sex industry. Why aren’t all women of all sizes desirable. The answer is because of Phi and proportions. We have this built in idea in our subconscious mind of what ideal looks like so this is why we gravitate towards it. Why does sexual appeal effect people the way they do? It’s a double edged sword, but it doesn’t have to be if people just understood the words “NO” in society. Feminists anger me in that they put themselves as priority over everyone else because they’ve suffered a tragedy of rape and it makes our entertainment suffer because of it. They wanted to put platform boots on Samus Aran instead of her killer rocket heel boots. Clunky box shaped moon boots kids use to wear because they felt weird walking in them, i still don’t understand the concept honestly. They are ugly, clunky and impractical. There was a woman that complained about them, hacked her way into their website and flooded their mail with feminist attacks such as this:
“OKAY BUT IT’S BAD ENOUGH THAT YOU GIVE ZSS LARGE BREASTS AND AN HOURGLASS FIGURE MEANT SPECIFICALLY TO FAT SHAME BUT THEN YOU GIVE HER HEELS AND PASS IT OFF AS A FEATURE? OF THE GAME??? WHEN SHE JUMPED ONSCREEN WITH THOSE HORRIBLE, FILTHY MAN-IMPOSED HIGH HEELS I HAD AN ANXIETY ATTACK. FUCK OFF NINTENDO, YOU SLIMY FUCKING PATRIARCHICAL HUMAN TRASH COMPANY FUCK. DO NOT PLAY THIS GAME. SIGNAL FUCKING BOOST.“

This is what your over-sexed world has done to poor Samus Aran and IF this comes to pass that she has to wear those boxes someone will feel my unbound wrath and fiery. I mean heels were originally made to be worn by men.. it was a symbol of power. It was mostly for walking over piles of shit on the streets but then women decided they wanted power too. So they wore them and it looked sexy on them so men stopped wearing them and thus women continued to wear them. Heaven forbid Samus rolls her ankle that would suck. But if we rationalized that the heels gives head room for the rocket boost to not be made a close system when flat on the ground it would make alot of sense. Logic put aside, it’s a kids game. And all the princesses in this game had heels so why do they these feminists continue to attack Samus and her attire? She’s a badass bounty hunter from the future and she does what she wants. She’s also a woman that gives her the right to be sexy. I mean men are suppose to be sexy too, but it’s more subtle whereas females they have assets that sometimes have no boundries and just hang out there.
This topic is ridiculous but it’s a sensitive issue where we’ll have some crazed feminist who’s been traumatized by rape dictating what our world should look like. And we’ll also have some sex crazed game designer who comes up with deviant ideas for costumes. Its an ongoing battle of the sexes that will never end. The word rape just makes me shudder because it can do so much damage and destroy homes and lives. The person either stays quiet or lets the world burn the smuck who raped her. A rapist was denied access to his education because the victim still went to school on that campus. It’s just a colossal mess and if people just understood the words “NO”. Then there wouldn’t be a problem. Another example is where a Boyfriend is accused of raping his girlfriend? Yes, this happens in this world. Personally i would kick him in the balls and see if he beats me. Then you can call the cops. The End. But i don’t understand the idea of submitting to an assaulter. Just makes you seem like you didn’t do everything in your power to not be a victim. Not trying to make any enemies here but screaming and shouting and biting, kicking and scratching is an effective way to stop an offender. If he beats you then he can go to jail for it. Then again i see this being abused because females can be aggressive and abusive too. It just needs to be sorted out by the justice system i guess.
In conclusion i think sex by consent is ideal. No means no. It doesn’t matter what females wear since it doesn’t matter what males wear. Game designers keep doing a great job and explore your creative world no matter what the world says. Feminists we apologize on behalf of the males of this world and hope your wounds heal but we are not going to give up our creativity and be absorbed in the concern for your safety. We will be aware of your human condition and situation on Earth so that others will understand the grief that this rape culture has allowed to happen. We are desensitized by action movies through sex, drugs and violence now a days and racism is still a problem in some parts of the world. People need to realize everyone has problems and blowing up your personal ones to be bigger then the ones current is not only unrealistic but causing untold pressure on the creativity and freedoms of a person. Everyone’s already turning introvert, sensitive, shy, isolated, uncertain, insecure and confused enough with the sexual innuendos. FFS can’t everyone just keep it in their pants. Its also not good to practice anything you wouldn’t do in life, it builds in the subconscious so i’d suggest not playing GTA every day of the year – it could cause some mental problems. I say stick to what you like and express yourself freely, and if you don’t like something keep it to yourself.
End of my rant.
