Always interesting to see what the internet thinks. In a "we don't have to publicly defend our statements with our actual names attached to them" sort of way.It's hard to say whether Playboy and its other likenesses are sexist or not. Playboy could arguably be a part of early feminism as it allowed (allows) women to show their bodies without being socially branded for ostracism. On the other hand, it objectifies women as sex toys whose purpose in life is to please men. Either argument is a double edged sword for whoever is arguing it - you can't have one without the other.As for its use in WoW, this is an adult game. We regularly go out into the digital world and do things that we would be arrested for (if not killed by) in the real world. Is it wrong for Blizzard to single out female characters for putting the iconic bunny ears on women who cannot actively object (you can't stop someone from putting the bunny ears on you, you can only take them off)? Possibly. Is it good that people are at least giving it some thought? Definitely.
