I'll see your 5s and raise you a pair of 9s.

How is that battle armor? It hardly covers anything and you concave chest plates would just direct glancing blows towards your sternum, not away from your body.

Of course, if we want to stick to the armor theme: AT LEAST MAKE IT REAL BLOODY ARMOR!

If it can't stop mores swords that it lets through, it's not armor.

It's armor because GI Joe red lasers are powerful enough to punch through steel robots wearing black, and take out tanks and planes, but no agent of Cobra has ever been killed by one, so it must be hella tough.

Cosplay is the cancer of conventions. The SDCC may as well have AIDS. Those people ruin everything.

But Mulan already wore battle armor and it sure as shiat covered more than that.  Also, I didn't care for the leakage into other topics.

I will say it's interesting to see how after years of cultural saturation, people are adapting the Disney Princesses for their own interests. They've gone from outdated movies to marketing overload to cultural commodity.

It's battle armor in the same way every fighting game female and most comic/manga/animated fighting female have "battle armor." It's not. We all know it's not. It COULD have been, but the majority of cosplayers are happy to show off anyway.

that was... the longest listing of ugly people I've seen in a long while...

It was like 1/30 that looked ok.
 
2014-08-25 06:48:45 AM
That was extremely underwhelming. And battle armor with exposed midriff is hardly protective.

The promiscuous mixing of genres can be the mark of a lack of creativity.

I'm not sure how greenlighting this sort of thing is in the same spirit as the new rules against misogyny.

It's all totally well and good to take a stand against marginalization, but comment threads like this are basically a honeypot for that kind of marginalization.

Are we going with the contempt/prejudice definition of misogyny, or are we going with the marginalization definition?

I'll add that I prefer female armour that actually looks like armour. Power is more attractive than belly-buttons.

I think Fark has set the misogyny bar pretty high.

We still have the boobies tag, so this is a PG rated version of that.

You keep thinking that.

Tough call.  There is a lot to be said for both.

Seems clear enough to me, but then I don't conflate "don't be an asshole" with that old school "don't objectify anybody" feminism.

36 comments in, and I didn't notice any yet. Could be that 96% of us are capable of acting like respectable adults in threads like this.

You're saying that you respect her as a person and not an object? That you feel that she has great talents that you would like to learn about so that your respect can grow. And then after a respectful amount of time, you would ask her if she would be interested in getting a cup of coffee or some other non-misogenistic activity that was mutually enjoyable so that you could continue to learn about her as a person?

Well there's our difference. Your take on misogyny is "don't be an asshole" where my take is "respect women".

Is it respectful to hold these women up and ogle them, then compare them to other women so we can rank them, and laugh when someone throws out a fat chick so we all know the extents of that scale? Is it respectful when someone throws out "eye bleach" just so everyone in the thread can forget that obese women can play dress-up too?

To be fair, if someone threw up a fat dude dressed embarrassingly we would mock him too. And I've seen the ladies throw up eye bleach for them, maybe not as often, but there aren't as many women.

 "Respect Women" is such utter horseshiat.  We deserve to be respected or disrespected in equal measure as men.

That is exactly what I mean...and then follow it with copious amounts of sex. So much that we would both be hospitalized for dehydration.
