I wasn’t aware that strong, sexually empowered women are in fact a demeaning social trope.
If you had ever played the games, or even mildly researched them, you’d know that Bayonetta is both highly sexualized for the benefit of the viewer AS WELL as being sexually empowered for herself. If you want to hate the former, you have to hate the latter, and that’s rather misogynistic, don’t you think?

okay theres a difference between real people choosing to be sexualised for their own benefit and men designing female characters to be sexualised
no matter how you wanna dress it up as this Fictional Character Created By Real People as making her own choices. she still in fact was made by a person who choose to make her look like that
yes, it is a problem that the person criticizing games does not research or play the game but you have to remember who makes the games and who is deciding that the character is empower by those things [hint: its cis het abled white men]

the designer of Bayonetta is female, Mari Shimazaki. she said that the design was a self projection power fantasy to empower herself while feeling beautiful, what she “aspires to be like”. for her own sake.
do your damn research.

"it’s cis het abled white men"
"white men"
…..you don’t play much, do you?

my SIDES

lmfao hows that research comin along tumblr

Bayonetta is one the most terrific, female-power fantasies I’ve seen since the gaming industry took off. Distinctly female yet completely working on her own terms, she show grace and power that utterly dominates every task she undertakes.
If you honestly believe that she is a sexist, misogynistic character then you honestly have not done the research and/or you ultimately believe that sexuality and female characters cannot coexist, which is fucking bullshit.

Yet another well known youtube star jumps on the appropriation bandwagon. Idgi, her sister in law Michelle Phan already appropriated mexican culture, why the hell would she do this now??? Ugh. My culture is not a halloween costume -___-

you do fucking realize that sugar skulls ARE a costume and there is no cultural appropriation to people wearing something that was meant to be a costume to begin with…right? it’s called la catrina and it mocks lower class people trying to dress like high class europeans….its like dressing up like a tourist with a big camera and a sun hat…honey you need to calm down, im fucking mexican and la catrina IS a part of our culture that is a halloween costume. you moron.

Actually no it’s not a costume and its not related to Halloween in no type of way shut up

um well im mexican and you’re wrong.  and its associated with day of the dead which is on october 31st, you dumb twat, go fuck yourself and dont tell me what i should find offensive when its fucking NOT
“José Guadalupe Posada created a famous print of a figure he called La Calavera Catrina (“The Elegant Skull”) as a parody of a Mexican upper-class female. Posada’s striking image of a costumed female with a skeleton face has become associated with the Day of the Dead”
OH LOOK IT ORIGINATED AS A COSTUMED FEMALE WITH A PAINTED FACE
“A common symbol of the holiday (day of the dead) is the skull (in Spanish calavera), which celebrants represent in masks, called calacas (colloquial term for skeleton)”
OH LOOK, MASKS…..OH MY LOOK AT HOW ITS WORN AS A FUCKING COSTUME EVEN WHEN CELEBRATING THE HOLIDAY, OH MAN OH MAN DONT WEAR MY CULTURE AS A COSTUME, WHEN THAT PART OF THE CULTURE IS IN FACT, A FUCKING COSTUME YOU GOD DAMN PIECE OF SHIT
you are an ignorant fuck

ALSO JUST SO YOU GUYS KNOW MICHELLE PHAN DID A MAKEUP TUTORIAL INSPIRED MY FLAMENCO DANCERS SHE DIDN’T APPROPRIATE ANYTHING HOLY SHIT

this is what happens when people try to be social justice-y and get notes. check urself b4 u shrek urself

Friendly reminder that sometimes there is certain context that determines whether or not something is cultural appropriation, and often the line is blurred. Check yout facts before you start to attack a woc youtuber ok
