Do you think it's sexist...
 
Rockingamer posted this blog in that Feminist thread, and there was this picture with a link to the BBC, and it was titles like this:

The battle against 'sexist' sci-fi and fantasy book covers



And another example would be this picture:

Anyways, do you think that comics that always have females pose in sexy and suggestive ways (which are in no way proper fighting or defensive stances) are being sexist?

I personally don't know if I'd use the word sexist. I do think it's really cheap, tacky, and if I liked comic books, I'd find it pretty insulting.

It's way worse in commercials. We men always look like idiots.

Oh wait, you're talking about comics. Oh yeah, screw that. I don't read those.

whywefight 02-01-2013 01:55 AM

Is it really worse than this?



People are horny mother****ers, everyone wants to see it.

No, you dumb broad.

bradulator 02-01-2013 01:57 AM

It's pretty sexist sometimes.

Can we talk about how creepy anime is also since they do the same thing but 100 times worse since their demographic is pedophiles and not just comic book geeks?

I'm not sure if I'd say they are deliberately sexist, but they certainly encourage sexism with their de-personification of woman as sex object stereotypes.

StewieSwan 02-01-2013 01:58 AM

It's not like it's a one-way street, though.



Yeah, that's totes realistix

Jackintehbox 02-01-2013 01:59 AM

I don't think it's sexist, I think it's marketing.

Sex sells, make something provocative & people will buy it, simple as that. What insults one person will turn on another, & as Jackintehbox said, it's marketing, bottom line is making the money.

The portrayal is a little sexist but what it does is support the very sexist mindsets within nerd culture. I've read some interesting articles on women and nerd cultures and I started noticing some of the sexism and misogyny in the general nerd culture.

The demographic for anime in Japan is only children. Anyone who watches anime past childhood is shunned from society and looked down on as, you guessed it, a pedophile.

Besides, that only happens in shitty anime. Granted, that's most anime.

Big robots > skanky women.

Bad Kharmel 02-01-2013 02:31 AM

individual examples are not necessarily sexist, however our culture in general has a problem with female objectification

Todd Hart 02-01-2013 02:37 AM

It's sex, not sexist. Spend two minutes flicking through a female-demographic magazine or take a glance at any boy-band and you'll see much the same; both sexes have sexual desires and fantasies and they make for fantastic marketing bases.

I do think it's sexist to put people in poses that are unrelated, or inefficient, to what they are doing just to be sexy.
