I can see where the whole 'sexist' crowd is coming from, but really, it's all in good fun. As you said, its just a pop culture reference that does no real harm.

Yeah this wasn't sexist, just having a little fun. If you really wanted to target a noblegarden event as pornographic, look towards http://www.wowhead.com/?achievement=2497 where you bring your rabbit to find other rabbits and have them mate to create baby bunnies.

Meh, I don't really find it sexist.But at the same time, I think it would have been more fun, if you could do it to both genders, like the valentines day festival.Not that I'm a fan of Playgirl magazine

@YengBlegh, that wasn't that bad, now THAT one people were blowing out of proportion. Your two bunnies come together, kiss each other on the nose, an egg comes flying out which explodes in confetti and flowers spring up and bunnies run every which direction.It's hardly pornographic. I'd call it cute even. It's a very childlike expression of "Where do Babies come from?" akin to the Stork.

@Karilyn I agree with you. I was speaking sarcastically, I don't find any of the achievements offensive personally. But if there was one to single out, the bunny sex one is more offfensive than the bunny ear one (even though both of them are amusing and humorous in my opinion). If I recall the actual animation has the two bunnies run off into a patch of flowers to get it on and then the eggs start flying out of it. We'll ignore the fact that bunnies don't lay eggs.

My issue is definately with the single gender objectification aspect. I don't have any problem with pop culture references, or with muted sexy stuff, as long it's reasonably respectful, and equal opportunity gender and orientation-wise. It's all in good fun...as long as everyone has an equal chance to give AND recieve that sort of thing.Therefore, I think that if they are going to have a required achievement to put bunny ears on a female over level 18 of each race, they should also add a required achievment to put a black bowtie on a male over level 18 of each race. I'm not sure if as many people would get the Chippendales reference as are likely to get the Playboy reference, but it's the closest equivalent.

I'd prefer that you could do it to both genders too. Keep the level 18 restriction... and have it temporarily make them naked (well, WoW naked).As a MT I could see this backfiring on me against a raid boss lol.
