Continuing the discussion from The Ridiculous Complaints thread:
I have not been able to find a thread dedicated to this topic. Please assist me if it needs to be merged with an existing thread.
I would like to see more variety in women body types. What I see is mostly eye candy sexy women body types with mostly scantily clad clothings.
I’m not against these types and I like both the male and female characters in the game. At the same time, we need to be mindful of this trend that puts women and girls to suffer from or be uncomfortable with their own body images. Where are the Nashgars (edit1) and Gormek of women? Mother North is the only one I can think of as an example of a “different” female body type. Maybe I’m just not progressed enough in the game to see all the female characters, but I’ve seen enough variety in men so far. Just as men come in different shapes, women come in different shapes, too.
By different shapes, I am talking about women with a few extra pounds and not obesity. I am not here to promote or condemn obesity. I would just like to see thicker bodied women perhaps with more muscles. (Edit 2)
I’d definitely like to see more females with short hair! Short hair can be very feminine, too. Afros would be great, too.
I’d also like to see more aged female characters, maybe even colored aged big female characters? More Melendor and Toril of women. (Sorry, I don’t really know many high * characters!) I’m just yearning for more inclusiveness!
I repeat: I’m yearning for more inclusiveness!
That being said, I think SG puts effort into representing people of color. I also like the Japanese theme of Sakura family and Asian and African(?) theme of Holy heroes.
Thank you for taking the time to listen to me. I hope you take this into consideration. I imagine there may be others with similar opinions to mine.
P.S. I won’t push the button on this … but how about drag queens and manly females? The possibilities are endless and exciting!
Some examples thanks to @RockVenom (edit3)
Awesome heroes worth noting:
