I know you guys already linked to the documentary “My big breasts and me”, but I think you haven’t linked to the MTV version “I don’t like my large breasts”:
While I prefer the first one, I found it very helpful that the second mentioned that there are stores with clothes for different cup sizes.
And for something else completely: Circumstance!
That movie? It looks AMAZING.
Hello, I came across these today, one is a forum topic asking male gamers who choose to play female characters to discuss why they do so, after the first few comments with the typical answer (staring at a girl’s ass is preferable to staring at a guy’s) it starts to get
“When playing as a male avatar, I almost always project myself through them. Even if I make a middle aged heavily scarred black man, I still project my own personality into them and it can be difficult to do especially evil things. I keep thinking “What would I do?”
But when playing as a female, I feel much more disconnected from my avatar, and feels as if she is her own character who makes her own decisions. In this case, it’s much easier for me to think “What would SHE do?” “
The second link is a brief article regarding relationships in games, it manages to quickly touch on objectification, fridge women, and
token female characters. I was quite impressed with how much Yahtzee managed to pack into this article considering how brief it is:
“There are the games that depict the commencement of a relationship, but this is rarely shown as anything other than an appropriate “reward” for the hero’s actions, which is just objectifying the love interest again. Rarely is time given to the compatibility of feelings between the two or to explore the feasibility of a partnership in the long term.”
Interesting link on geek girls and self objectification… not a lot of talk about race, tho.
