Exactly right, Naix. By A Female Gamer's use of the loaded word "Objectification" in relation to female images, he/she/it implies that such representations are inherently negative. After all, who wants to be merely objectified? And the words "fitness" and "power" in relation to male images suggest positiveness. After all, who would reject being fit and powerful? I contend that both categories of images are objectificational and that they also both indicate fitness and power. A Female Gamer's phrasing simply shows bias for male images and against female images in WoW's art.
