Has anyone ever heard the term "sex kitten"?

Women try their hardest to look like cats....eyeliner, lip liner, lipstick, big chest, small waist, bigger hips, smaller ankles, long nails, high heels etc. This has been going on since ancient egypt (also witches) and prior to that w/ Mesopetamia. Catwomen is a symbol and one done perfectly if you ask me.....

I don't hear people screaming sexism in movies. The average gamer age is 37. Mature games sell. I grew up with gaming and want something more geared towards my age not to say I can't enjoy games of all ages. The only controversy is the one this site is making up. Come on n4g let's have some quality articles. Not question mark articles for hits. The NY times doesn't have a whole newspaper dedicated to question mark articles. They do interviews with actual people instead of making up stuff. These sites have no creativity, contacts with developers, or any inside information.

I dont mind catwomen being provocative and sexy
because thats the whole character and her relationship
with batman was always like that but i thought
the costume she wore was realy dumb.
Just stupid massive tits and cleavage i thought it
looked realy stupid and tbh i would of found her character
to be alot more sexy if she was zipped up and not shoving them in my face.

While I hated her inclusion the word sexist never crossed my mind. Slutty did but never sexy however that's just how Catwoman is and always has been. Ertha Kit was never deemed sexist to my knowledge and she was never seen in anything aside from that tight leather catsuit.

My main gripe with Catwoman's inclusion is that she didn't tie into the story mode at all. She was just there while it was happening and I would have much rather had Robin tie into the story to advance it instead of just some random Two Face encounter while Batman's doing something productive.
