What’s hilarious is how many Dude Complaints there have been that all the male human faces look like girls or anime characters and that there’s only one face MANLY ENOUGH throw me into the sea
r u srs LOL there’s like… 4? faces out of all of them that don’t look Rugged White Male (tm) and only like. 2? goddamn faces that look default PoC, if you wanna get a decent setting for anything that’s not White Guy (tm) you have like triple the work and it doesn’t even look right most of the time
no wait let me throw these people into the sea instead b/c LMAo
This is really like a huge thing, because fantasy media and video games especially condition guys to see anything less than hypermasculine as feminine-coded or “gay.”
SORRY FOR WoW but as an example, this is a blood elf guy:
This is Arnold Schwarzenegger back when he was Mr. Universe:
There’s not a whole lot of difference there. But guess which race gets constant whining about how “weak” and “girly” the guys look?
The like…one or two? youngish norn male faces that got added to the GW2 character creator touched off a bunch of complaints too, as though there aren’t a majority of ＳＬＡＢ ＢＵＬＫＨＥＡＤ faces in the norn male character creator, as well as far fewer options than for female norn (who look more human) overall. I really love that ArenaNet is using makeover kits to create more variety and I will happily fork over money every time they do it but I think a lot of the lacking options are tied to every race having a general image or aesthetic and if you want to deviate from that at all it’s very hard to make it look good.
Unfortunately the aesthetic for humans just happens to kind of fall in Standard Fantasy Novel Cover territory.
THIS IS WITHOUT EVEN GETTING INTO HOW THE SOLUTION TO MAKING NON-WHITE CHARACTERS IS “use sliders :D”
I love this especially for the direct image comparison of Schwarzenegger and a blood elf man.
im gonna watch an episode of my little pony
i learnt that bullying is wrong and you should make friends with people based on their personality rather than looks how the fuck are people sexualising this show like what the fuckity doo

The Histoire de Curbes, Pulp Fashion Week Show(lle-de-France, France)

I love to see the celebration of all women’s bodies.
This is VERY important
