I’m glad that she’s revamped the series to feature shorter videos on smaller topics. The earlier long videos were masterpieces, but they were taking her forever to put together and were something of a chore to watch because they were so long.
Also, good to know (from the kickstarter update) that she’s scaling back in order to get the rest of the project out the door without harming her health or burning out. She’s a national treasure and I want her to continue her education and activism for a long time to come.
Common ways men’s butts are hidden are by preventing the player from seeing below the character’s waistline, or employing a more over-the-shoulder camera angle, which has the added benefit of keeping the character’s butt safely out of the frame. The most amusing solution is to simply include a cape, tunic, long coat or very conveniently positioned piece of tattered fabric which actively prevents the player from getting a clear or sustained look at the protagonist’s butt.
Given that most men in modern Western society wear capes or long cloaks, I find that critique somewhat disingenuous.
Isn’t that kind of daft, since everybody has some degree of sexuality anyway? It seems like a desperate thing to commoditise. Why not pay to watch somebody else brush their teeth? Or - even help them to do it. Phwoar! Would you pay $20 to brush somebody’s teeth for them?
How powerful that would make you! How kewl! Your friends would be so impressed it would jack up your ego for the rest of the year! Just think about it! Hell, I can’t stop myself from thinking about it. BRB
I understand what she is saying, but…in a perfect world us men would be wearing these same outfits and not thinking about it. Over the last few years, I’ve taken to wearing compression tights while working out, biking, or even when I’m rock climbing. You know what? I can COMPLETELY understand why women love their Lulus and otherwise. I use to wear shorts over my man tights to hide the fact that my ass is perfectly framed and lifted, but these days I don’t care.
I use to get strange looks wearing them, but it is getting to be normal attire at the gym wearing these. It is actually far more sexist that more men don’t wear these and that the male body has to be cloaked as opposed to wearing clothing that supports, compresses, and massages the muscles. If I were a videogame character, I’d DEMAND something as form fitting and natural as what most of these women were shown wearing…
I know… My point was that the commoditisation of sexuality makes no sense from the usual supply/demand rhetoric of market wanquery. There is lots of body-work people do for their routine hygiene and maintenance, sex doesn’t seem any different. That’s why I compare it to brushing teeth, because that’s something most people don’t have neurotic taboos over.
