No, I thought it was a bit bigoted to assume we knew what women would be offended by without actually having any involved in the conversation. You know, the traditional gender role of "I know what is best for you, Honey".
Feeling that both men and women are entirely capable of judging what is good for one another is not the same as feeling that only men are capable of deciding what is good for a woman. I know what offends me as a crass depiction of a person or group of people. Being a man does not preclude me from coming to a reasonable conclusion about that, even if the subject is a woman.
So yes, I think it is bigoted to suggest that men are unable to discuss gender issues that relate to women. I'm not accusing you of being a bigot, if that isn't what you're suggesting, but if that isn't what you're suggesting, what are you complaining about?
I wouldn't either, but I was referring towards Jade from beyond Good and Evil, and the like. Sexy =/= sexualized.
That is definitely true, but I think you're talking quite a bit about the very small number of people insisting that absolutely everything a man does in depicting a women in sexist, to the exclusion of the real problem that the game industry still harbours a lot of very real casual sexism as part of what is really a more extreme problem, and that is the encouragement of unhealthy social viewpoints to sell more games.
Obviously there are nutcases, that doesn't make real gender discrimination any less of an issue.
But hey, if you want to paint me as a bigot who loves them titties hiding up in his club house, you would be misrepresenting me, but go ahead, I guess.
Likewise, if you would like to paint me as being on a crazy witch hunt for political correctness, go nuts!
