If you're getting off to drawings of a video game character... the averages no longer apply to you.

I don't know anyone named Chun-Li.

*clicks link*

Oh, nerd thread. Carry on.

There is nothing wrong with Kristin Kreuk's thighs.

Well except they are not wrapped around me.

Wow. PopMatters must have paid Drew a LOT of beer money.

Oh, and I prefer Olivia Munn's take on the character:

After all, the standard for the female body in America is most often the slimmest physique possible. Diminishing most parts of the female body is often much more desirable than building them up.

I dunno about that. We're wired for reproduction and thus find big hips and tits a turn-on. The reason that her character works is that she basically has a wasp waist.
 
2010-08-11 12:32:40 PM
What about her knees?

Particularly when she's a street-fighter... a waif wouldn't make any sense in that setting. She's a bit ridiculously proportioned, but it makes sense for her to have big legs. And yeah, she wouldn't be hot if she had a thick waist

I dunno, thighs that could crush a man's head rank pretty high for me.

13. There's 13 damn paragraphs in that article. Someone thought about Chun-Li's thighs enough to write 13 paragraphs about them.

That's... that's something.

I just played SF4 yesterday for the first time, so I'm getting a kick , etc...

The models look freaking terrible. Everyone's everyTHING is completely out of proportion to everything else.

I don't know. I dig chicks with big thighs. Like they could crack walnuts with them.

Soccer chicks are great for that.
 
2010-08-11 12:35:53 PM
in street fighter the rpg, the system was based on a scale of 1 to 5. Her kicking rated a 7.

She's a good design, and I liked her as a character. So cheap in Third Strike though.

Why is Fark greenlighting headlines that are copied and pasted straight from the PopMatters website? This is now a daily occurrence.

Cue the Robert Crumb drawings of thick legs.

Awww, I was hoping the article would turn into a compare/contrast of the costumes of various female characters in videogames today. What was the game released just a year or two ago where the bad ass fighting chick was wearing what amounted to a bikini that would have her bewbs flying out every time she turned around? Anyone have pictures of that... for.. uh.. research?

Eroticized Thighs... a decent chick-band name.
 
2010-08-11 12:52:57 PM
There's nothing interesting about the way that Chun-Li has been eroticized, because EVERY female character in video games, anime, and manga is the object of some sweaty nerd's desires.

I can't think of any female characters in video games, anime, or manga that ARE NOT eroticized and lusted after by fans.

Really... Even the ones who aren't really female are lusted after, and have all sorts of stupid DeviantArt pages filled with bad drawings of them.
