People who act like Metal Gear only makes overly sexualized women, when most of those women are not only about their body, but even if that is an issue there are
it is rude
to point out
some of the women
Who show off their Cha-chas
and act like the game is set up to make their whole character be about their body.
I FORGOT THE BEST PERSON IN THE WHOLE SERIES.
"This valid concern you’ve brought up doesn’t happen 100% of the time, therefore it is invalid!"
Look here, the point of this post isn’t to dismiss the fact there is female sexualization in this game. It is the fact people have honest to god stated that females are ONLY INCLUDED TO BE SEXUALIZED in the games. Which isn’t true, they are given great writing, story lines, and deep complex personalities.
This game has many flaws and it does sexualize people throughout the gameplay, but saying the game is strictly against females and hyper sexualizes them all the time is a lie and people also need to be aware of that as well.
Bring up the fact the B&B unit is hyper sexualized, then only after long cut scenes in provocative camera angles they are given back stories. Not letting you really getting to know them as people until after their deaths and all the male gaze. Debate on if the outfits make sense or if they fit the wearer’s personality or if they are completely unnecessary.
But people need to stop saying that MGS doesn’t care about women or give them great character development/stories/personalities. People need to stop saying that Women are only included in the games to be sexualized.
Women in metal gear are basically the only characters that aren’t silly goofballs. the women tend to be the most complex and intense characters in the series the men are also complex but have you seen the Boss? Sniper Wolf? Like shit these ladies have had some fucked up times but they will not take your shit. They do what they want and sometimes they like to wear skintight outfits or show some cleavage but every character is different some like to show off their squishy bits and others are more comfortable covered up. Like jesus how can you play metal gear and say “Wow these women are just here for eye candy” BECAUSE THERE IS NO WAY YOU CAN BACK THAT SHIT UP.
