"Whats wrong with calling female toons gorgeous?"Whats wrong is that thats ALL he calls them. The males get compliments on their strength and their apparent handsomeness/sexual prowess; where females just get "hey, you're pretty, holla at me girl let me get your digits". His dialogue is CREEPY and SUGGESTIVE. Its not a surprise if some male players don't get how this is uncomfortable for many female players: you don't experience the kind of sexism being presented here the way women do. But as a female player, I do find his dialogue disconcerting and it makes me uncomfortable and you don't have the right to dismiss the concerns of players who are put off by this because you don't see a problem. I play female toons because I like the idea of my female character being a strong, powerful hero, not a runway model in a chain bikini.
