Also, if you stop to think about it, how many incoming users and how many current users do you really think Riot would lose by making changes to some female champions to make them less sexualized? Are you going to pack your bags when they reduce Ashe's breast size? If so, I'm not sure why you're playing this game in the first place.
You imply their is something bad about s e x or male s e x uality. Why limit what is most certainly not bad. S e xual selection is a good thing that has given humanity remarkable resistance to parasites, fertility, and erotic art. S e xual selection however is remarkably competitive far more so then any computer game and peoples feelings get hurt so threads like this are made. Both s e x e s want to be able to put out no effort at make no barely palatable compromises all...... and still get the person of their dreams. Not going to happen.
Men will always A-- have to do or say things they do not beleve in
B-- learn hypnotism or NLP
C-- Limit thier perfered mating habits in order to have a mate at all
D play lots of computer games and try look at lots of e r o t ca and forget out competing for women
E--- Dodge or neutralize the intimidating moves of men larger or of higher social then themselfs, who will ALWAYS be competing for a women worth ones time.
and in all cases --- fork over lots of money or time spent appearing to have a "glowing personality" In order to have gratifying moments of female induced pleasure
Women will always have to
A-- Look pretty enough
B-- Maintain a pleasant willingness to help and try to hide the most toxic of thier emotions away in the early phases of a relationship to avoid scaring a guy off or better get dealing "internal demons" before they start looking for a man.
C-- Be sexually available more often then their biological comfort zone tends to make them naturally
and be willing to do the occasional thing they think is a bit gross or weird in order to keep men interested. (Because truth to be told men find the vast majority of female sexual fantasy to be so crushingly boring)
D-- Take some physical risk and emotional risks beyond their comfort zone. (Men have to enter the win/lose world earlier then women do and so accept physical risk much more ready as a cost of doing business or getting things done but women often need to push themselves and be mentally focused more to take the kinds of risks men are simply expected to take as a matter of course.
When humans removed most scarcity from daley life, the one thing that remained scarse were the number of mates that one would choose free of the need to compromise on something. Either play the game or find something else to occupy your time. Whining about objectification or the odd logic women use to select mates or rather the odd way of speaking successful men employ to get women in the absence of wealth. None the less both s e x e s annoy each other but if loneliness is something you can no longer stand then their are some hard compromises and choices to be made.
Arguments like the original posters tend to make people feel in their bones that somebody somewhere down the line is trying to get something for nothing. People hate that feeling because its typically a reliable warning bell even if the type of hokum cannot be properly identified underneath all the layers of rhetoric, outright lies, and murky psychological motivations. The reason threads like this arouse such strong emotions is both sides feel the other is trying to get or hold on to something for nothing in an area of life where scarisity is still a defining trait of looking for s e x or love or a bit of both in proportions that are acceptable.
