Why I’m sad for femshep
Bioware basically chucked away all respect for proper, military soldier ladies with Mass Effect 3. I don’t give a damn how much hate I’ll get for this - but this is just my honest frank opinion. They concentrated way more on the bloody make up options rather than say, giving her healthy, toned arms, or a toned body in general. The default Jane Shepard, poor thing, looks like a fifteen year old mallrat.
AND no, I’m not saying soldier ladies can’t wear make up, be pretty, or look good; and I’m not saying they have to look like female hulks either. But they most CERTAINLY do not have the “perfect fashion supermodel” bodies that they do in Mass Effect. You know why?
Because combat training, rigorous military exercises, and actual combat honed bodies - that’s why.
Agree with you, esp about their bodies. They looked like victoria’s secret supermodels than actual soldiers tbh.
Would it hurt if they made their bodies a la Aveline from dragon age 2 instead? She at least looked like she had some serious training. Hell, even Isabela looked like she could kick some asses.
If only there were body options like saints row so you can make them how you see fit, sigh.
Kill la Kill literally can’t get any gayer than this.
when we talk about women in refrigerators it’s not always something super literal
i don’t imagine in writers room across the globe they’re all sitting there like “well we’re out of ideas let’s fridge another one” (but maybe they do i have no idea)
but what’s happening consciously or unconsciously writers are deciding that women are more valuable dead then alive. this goes way back. this is poe saying there’s nothing more poetic than the death of a beautiful woman. this is a dozen pre raphaelite paintings of ophelia drowning because they found her suffering erotic. this is the first reaction to laura palmer’s body being found being, “she was so beautiful.”
fuck this. fuck this.
i’m sick of writers getting passes. fuck this. our strong women are taken from us. we don’t get survivors. we don’t get triumph. women get chopped into artistic little pieces for the male heroes to choke own because we’re more valuable this way. because this way you don’t have to worry about our hopes and fears and opinions because we’re dead and dead women tell no tales. they can’t speak out against injustice because men took their tongues. and they think it’s beautiful. death, the ultimate passivity, the ultimate waiting room, is the most beautiful thing of all. there’s nothing more poetic than the death of a beautiful woman.
women matter. they matter when they are living. not listening to women while their still breathing is a failure and should not be regarded as anything else. it is a failure with very serious effects
