Oh noes! An NPC noticed my character's gender! And he reacts differently to men than women!That's what I'm hearing there. Surprise! Most people do that most of the time. And it isn't as if there aren't good reasons for that; women and men value different things... well... differently.Heck, reading Josh's transcript of the lines he's saying pretty much the same thing; telling a guy he 'looks strong' is about as close as is socially acceptable for one guy to tell another he's handsome. So yeah, in either case Firepaw says "Hiyas! You're attractive! I bet you can pick and choose among the opposite gender! Let's be friends!"I can see an argument that it's insensitive to homosexuals, I guess, but it isn't particularly unlikely that that thought never crossed Jin's mind... nor does one's preference preclude difficulty in avoiding unwanted attention by the opposite gender.None of this addresses the armor model issue, though; that's an out-of-character choice by the art team.
