I can respect this response. People ask me why all the cake pictures on my facebooks, I'm like I just like cake, it's fucking delicious. I can't help it if you don't like cake...suger free bastards! Stay of my facebook lawn!

What's funny is that a lot of girls also like wearing high heels for whatever reason.

Wearing high heels doesn't oppress women, nor make them objects. neither does wearing any other kind of clothing really.

Once more developers get this through their head, they can create what they want and maybe the SJW crowd will just go ignored the way they should be until they can form cohesive, meaningful arguments like they used to before Sarkeesian and Alexander entered the fray, and maybe they can be forced to actually broach the issue of representation in a positive fashion, instead of looking at everything as an attack on their own personal worth since they seem to think that the only thing that is of value is their own gender.

Absolutely! I love the fact that 2B wears high heels. I love girls too and wish more girls in games wore them! :D
