Is Dead or Alive Sexist? Or Is It Actually Me?

KingHorseFondler69 featured on AlienLion.com:

"Like many people, I spent the final nights before International Mayan Apocalypse Day, studying footage of the Dead or Alive girls on YouTube. And as I carefully analyzed said footage, a thought came to mind and wouldn’t go away; it was: “I’m not sure what it is, but I just can’t help but feel that there’s something sexist about these games.”

At the end of 2012, I wasn’t exactly an expert on this subject, sexism. But now, in 2013, after many nights of studying YouTube commentary, I am definitely an expert. And I have concluded that the Dead or Alive series is indeed as sexist as (must think of brilliant simile!) your mom.

Now, before you complain about my amazing conclusion, please keep reading, because I managed to secure an imaginary interview with Tecmo’s Lead Attorney of Legal Stuff, Mr. Bukkake Sushimi Pikachu; you see, I wanted to give his corporation a chance to not actually defend itself..."

Showing the human body is not sexist. Stop living in the stone age, people.

Ever notice how (mostly) people that get offended by sexy naked ladies are fully clothed not so sexy ladies?

Sexism: 1. Attitudes or behavior based on traditional stereotypes of sexual roles. / 2. Discrimination or devaluation based on a person's sex, as in restricted job opportunities; especially, such discrimination directed against women.

It's the first sense that should be brought to bear on this, not the second.

The games ARE sexist in how they perpetuate and / or contribute to often impossible and shallow ideas of femininity. Tecmo should have more integrity than to fulfill the juvenile requests of gamers looking for T&A.

Roles of gender and sexuality are culturally learned and attractiveness is subjective. The DoA games would wrongfully claim otherwise.

have you seen the Japanese AV models that these characters are clearly modeled after, there identical with how their bodies look so clearly its not impossible look.

so the extremely buff men in every video game with a male protagonist is now extremely sexist since like 0.00001% of the world is even going to be close to that kind of body shape.

the girls in DoA are there for Eye candy just the same with the men how many films do you notice where they always have attractive male and females its because people prefer to look at attractive actors and its the same with games.

A lovely read! Love irony and to make fun of an overdriven opinion if it comes up to sexism... Product has to sell, nearly everyone but some likes it, whats the big deal?
