>Ryan, aka "Jabberwock" makes armor. He therefore knows more about armor than I do and maybe more than you do.
>He has noticed, as you might have, that the armor that some female characters wear in video games, comics and movies is ridiculous. Some of it is not.
>Well, what can he tell us about ladies' armor, both the real kind and the glorified tinsel that we see in some of the world's most popular fantasy fiction?
>One lesson: we should barely be able to tell the difference between the shape of functional men's armor and functional women's armor.

>"This fictional sexy woman is too damn sexy"!

Surely they could've come up with something more original, by now?

Ironic how the mere fact that they're still beating this dead horse is indicative of how little "wrong" there actually is in the industry.

>I say nothing about unrealistic male depictions in female-dominated media

The hypocrisy is staggering and should be justifiably ridiculed. Feminism is disgusting bigotry.
