JonTron just linked this image as an example of how men are stereotyped and exploited in video games I’m literally laughing out loud holy shit
for anyone who still doesn’t get it notice the background please
Fun fact: topless slave girls are COLLECTIBLES in this game.
See, the problem is that the guys objectification is empowering. You’re empowered because you’re taking advantage of the other objectified people.
Also, can my followers who like guys please comment on whether or not they find this guy sexually attractive?
nah, too much muscle. Muscle is hard… I want something soft to rest my head on! :P the only guy that i’ve ever been attracted to who has looked like this is Jason Momoa.
I personally like muscles. I adore them. They fascinate me.
But this Conan doesn’t look sexually attractive. He looks like he’s gonna kill me - he’s intimidating and forceful. I’d better stay away from him.
If he looked like this
I’d say “Well, hello sexy.”
Objectification and sexualization don’t really depend on character’s looks, even if they use it to objectificate and sexualize. They depend on character’s purpose and agency.
A girl character can run around with her titties exposed but still could be not sexualized.
Just my 2 cents
ALL OF THIS.
Perfect way of explaining male power fantasy and sexualization of women (and the ‘male gaze’) ever.
"Just because he’s a Demon Lord doesn’t mean he’s not into consent. We have a safe-word and everything."
"That’s good of him."
-Party wizard explaining why her demon/ antipaladin lover is totally okay to the cavalier
no but the fact larry didn’t stop stroking freddy’s face and crying over him, even after freddy told him that he was a cop
true friendship is talking about masturbating and it not being weird
i know it’s called an otp but i have like 50
do you ever get those pangs of anxiety where you feel like nobody likes you and nobody will ever like you and you will achieve nothing
