This game is very chauvinistic

As a self-loathing male, let me tell you I am massively offended with the fact that over the past four and a half years this game has objectified women and measured them by the size of their bra size.  I mean have you seen the size of the breasts on the Advent lady?  How unrealistic.  My wife is going to divorce me because she thinks that the game that I am so passionate about only sees a woman fit to be the avatar of a faction if her cup size is at least a D.  Whatever happened to judging a woman on less superficial attributes.  For example, what if it turned out that the Advent lady was really terrible at making sandwiches, but her sister, who had slightly smaller breasts, was a gourmet sandwich chef.  Would that change the avatar selection process that has since remained discriminatory against women with smaller breasts?

I would like to point out the racial undertones exemplified by the purple skin colored Advent....purple people would probably not take kindly too that...I'm guessing the only reason why no purple person has complained thus far is that purple people are pre-disposed to play checkers instead of Sins...

Sheesh.  It's never occurred to me to think about the Advent as objectified, slavish women.  I always sort of saw them as ultra-feminists.

What do you see when you look at this?

...and yes--they are pretty objectified in Demigod.

 

Your wife does realize that in the actual game, there are only ships? Maybe it was my telenovela story she read.  If so I apologize...or would like to hear if she liked it.

"UNITY" 

Chapter One

The handsome Vasari warrior placed his sharply taloned hands around the voluptuous Advent acolyte's curvy waist.  "I...I shouldn't!", she stammered--yet despite the keening wail of the Unity something in her yearned for  more.

"Trust me curvy, soft human female"...rasped the now flushed Vasari commander.."Once you've had backward legs, you never go back!".

"Oh, K'graak!...take me now!", said the psintigrat as she simultaneously took control of his mind.  One way or the other, she was getting what she wanted this night.

 

Chapter Two

They hugged in delight as their first egg was laid...the joy of triumphant parenthood despite all odds thrown against them by their disparate racial biologies.

Still blinking back bile of joy and conquest, it was then K'graak looked a bit more closely and thought...

"Wait a minute--those are not my spot patterns...".

 

Chapter Three 

K'graak realized it was impossible that he implanted those grotesquely spotted eggs and this time his sweet Advent princess was unable to redirect his seething rage.

Minutes later, wiping his chin and belching loudly through his gill slits, the now satisfied K'graak took the last bite of egg from the plate before him and smirkingly said to his soon to be ex-bride, "I guess I was wrong--those are good eggs!".

The frying pan they had been cooked in was the last thing to pass through his mind.

Oh, the usual. A little bit of this and that with some obscure playwrights being thrown into the mix for good measure. You haven't paid much attention to this section of the forums have you?

I honestly don't have the words to describe what is happening to this section of the forums.  Do the regulars not care that new people will be reading this area?

If by "ships" you mean the phallic-shaped Halcyon, or the Chalice-like Eradica....

The OP points out what obviously is a little known fact of shared history between the Advent and TEC that even the most dedicated observers fail to recognize;  The original dispute that led to the great exodus of the Advent was lack in sufficient size mammaries.  This explains why the Advent ladies are all bent on boob jobs.

 

Your wife knows this, and is exactly why she fears this game.  It represents Boob fixations as objectification.

#notsureifserious #whyyesthesearehashtags

..... Do you know that "RedSkittles" is actually a reference to a Stardock employee who's forum handle is "redskittlesonly", IIRC? And said employee uses their actual picture as their avatar?

Y/N?

IF Y=1, then this proves that the Internet is not a sarcastically conductive medium.
IF N=1, then this proves that you merely have not seen a lot of StarClad mods.
