$10 says I can find a related fetish online within 3 minutes.

Jesus, there are days I shudder to think I’m part of this species.

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.

So, what you are saying is…you are a Men’s Tights Activist.

Formalwear can be very liberating, and the tails cover a lot.

I prefer to use the phrase BLM – Butt Lift Matters.

Well, a non-sexist perspective might be that of simply functional clothing activism/advocacy.

ETA: Ah, I see what you are getting at there…

Time to make lemonade from these lemons, game industry.

Strategic butt covering could be a whole new series of strategy games.

From the game studio that brought you Rome: Total War comes, Bum: Wait, where did it go… It was just here…

Yep, I didn’t feel a thing for Lara Croft when they did all those horrible things to her in that last game. Is it because of her tight pants?

And meanwhile… a FF character was given a “sexy” tight costume and the push back was so fierce they covered him up!

It sounds like the push back was basically the ambivalent comments of one person, and that SE are on the fence. They might offer both.

Missing the point I think.

Men complained. The costume got changed.

Women dare even comment about female character costumes… women get death threats and have to shut YouTube comment sections.
