May 1st 2009 2:18PM I'd like to re-iterate what Heremod (113) said:
Just because a lot of people disagree doesn't make it untrue.
I'm a 24 year old male, and tbh I didn't even get the whole bunny-ears + female+lvl 18 = Playboy reference until I came across this. Having learnt of it, is it sexist? Not anymore so then a large number of other things in the game, which as others have pointed out, can be deemed far worse. So the answer is: Yes, it is probably sexist.
The real argument that I think stems out of this is: Is it worth getting upset about? The general consensus seems to be a resounding No.
I just mentioned in guild chat that there was a huge discussion about whether the Bunnymaker achievement was Sexist or not on wowinsider. And most of the female members online responded with something along the lines of :
LoL, are you f-ing serious?
And I agree. I think those who choose to get offended by something as silly as this, are doing a great dis-service to a lot of brave people (men and women) who have fought tooth and nail for women's rights and equality. They also take themselves way too seriously. Sexuality is nothing to be ashamed about. If you think that putting bunny ears on that blood elf female degraded her, then you my dear, have daddy issues.
To the author of the blog: I think your heart is in the right place, in that you want the world to be a better place for your children. But this? No. Just No.
