      I will, of course, contribute my male bikini witches to this thread.

      Because clearly I needed to bring them back.

        'Because the conversation is going to go nowhere it hasn't gone the last hundred times' seems like a good reason for 'why the fuck not'. But that might just be me.

        Also, they are fine so long as they don't over-saturate the artwork with them.

            Omg, didn't I just do this back in the other thread? xD

            Yes, actually, I did. I'm not in the mood to repeat myself right now.

              Well, I always knew I was something of an oddball.

                Those seeking more information on Weimann's invariably excellent (I assume, because I only skimmed the thread) contributions to this topic may begin here. Ctrl+F "Weimann" and go from there.

                  There are a lot of misrepresentations in RPG's and comics. From physical proportions (in both sexes) to physics (it's become natural to see stupid stuff and not lift an eyebrow).

                  My personal opinion is that all this "bikini witch topic" is as important as you or me let it be. I for one, consider that the exalted audience is intelligent and we are capable of using our criteria and not feel offended or mind controlled by something so simple.

                  Just as you can ignore the rules you find aweful. You are free of creating your own aesthetics for your characters. Just because the book shows illustrations, it doesn't mean you need to stick to that style and theme.

                  On one hand, to the game, I think all this discussion is a bit irrelevant and may be "harmful" to the new edition (expectations vs. reality).

                  On the other hand, this discussion isn't irrelevant in other contexts, like if we were discussing discrimination. But that would be more fitting in another forum. One that is not dedicated to a game.

                  This is my personal opinion, and I am in no way trying to convince anyone or actively asking to stop the discussion. These are my final words on the matter.

                    Yeah, while the idea of having a dedicated thread for this kind of thing is nice, it kind of depends on people not blowing up at each other. Unfortunately, it's been proven time and again that this will happen on these boards. It's just a very charged issue, and everyone doesn't even agree that it is an issue, and will come and tell those who think it's an issue why it's not, and there we go again.

                    If we could have a thread where those who didn't subscribe to the core idea that female depiction in Exalted is off in a number of ways just didn't post, we could maybe have a lasting discussion (emphasis on maybe). That, however, is not likely to happen. At least not without very tight moderation and an explicit interest from the moderators to keep it going and not just close it down to save them the hassle (which I'd totally understand).

                    Edit: A neat thing with being able to create a steady platform of assumptions that don't have to be retread every three pages is that the discussion could indeed get off the ground and branch out into other topics. For example, we could talk about more deep-reaching depictions of characters than their visual images, which in fact is an area where Exalted excels (at least in my opinion). We could talk about the stereotypes men have (because they do!) and how they could be improved and diversified upon. And stuff like that. It'd be neat.

                      Clothing should be appropriate for the character and the character's context.

                      You can make it more complicated than that, but you don't need to.

                        What? Can...

                        Someone care to explain the joke... I am confused.

                          Seriously though, I'm mostly talking out of my ass based on shit I've read on the internet. Anyone with half a clue about this topic could probably demolish my points in minutes.

                          That's a really good guideline. Remains only to define what is "appropriate" for what character and context. That can't be that hard. Right? :P

                            I think Exalted needs as many Roseblacks and Perfect Souls as it has bikini witches. Well drawn all of them, mind. If you are going to provide fanservice, make it look good.

                            It also needs less of Princesss Chains-For-A-Bra.

                              A bikini witch is a witch in a bikini. This really jerks some people off. Others jerk off to it. The choice is yours.
