I wouldn't care about the armor-kinis so much if the differences weren't so drastic for what's supposed to be the same item. The Black mageweave pants are a nice set of pants on men. We all know what they look like on women. I've seen fully-covering breastplates suddenly turn into 2 cups barely covering nipples when put on a different toon (one from the Satyr boss in Dire Maul comes to mind).So yeah. Make more armor equally covering, or equally baring. The same item shouldn't have such drastically different appearances, in my mind. It's just ridiculous--though it *has* gotten better in more recent patches and expacs. Now my paladin just puts up with belly-baring tanking gear now and then. Yeah, I could "just transmog it away" now, but have you seen the most recent paladin tier? How pretty it is? I like the design, and half the chestpiece is missing because my tummy *has* to be shown compared to my raid lead's male protadin. So now I just cover it up with my guild tabard--which also defeats the purpose.My mage and rogue may wear more revealing gear, but it should be just as revealing on their male counterparts.As an aside since I'm already here: Ji Firepaw's line can be taken as "different races have different standards of beauty" and this is a strong reminder. But...it IS really just out of the blue on first meeting. I think maybe a few quests in commenting about the character's strength *and beauty* would be less problematic; then he knows and admires the character, and players have a better idea of his personality (it also makes sense for his "HEY BRO!" reaction to males, but if he had a similar reaction "Hey tough girl, we'll get along well!" it may work). Yeah, there are gregarious, blunt people in real life. But it was just...startling. Not so much offensive to me, but...definitely off, it seemed. Even more so than the random comments from other NPCs (for rep, greeting/exiting dialogue boxes) have been over the years.
