Why is Blizzard still OK with gender inequality in World of Warcraft? {WoW}

Apr 3rd 2012 5:09PM Oh, a quick p.s. on the topic of getting creepy comments, etc when on female characters.
I have experienced more of those back when my Worgen was still a male than I ever did on my female Blood Elf. Strange.

Why is Blizzard still OK with gender inequality in World of Warcraft? {WoW}

Apr 3rd 2012 5:07PM (incoming wall of text :D)

I occasionally use "skimpier" armor sets on my characters, but only to amuse myself. They are back to being fully dressed within a few days that way. :)

Now, I was truly taken aback when I first saw screenshots of Ji's different comments on the PC male/fem Pandaren - definitely a creepy vibe going on here.
This impression hasn't diminished no matter how often I view those pictures over and over. :/ Not a good thing in my eyes...

Aside from this, I was thrilled back when Blizz released the silhouette of the fem Pandaren - lovely curves, might really fit with the males.

Oh how wrong I was.
In my opinion, the female Pandaren look like creepy child-like "toys", with their :3-smile, vacant stare and over-the-top idle and laugh animations. Cute is good, when it is applied in balanced measures.
Clearly someone dumped a whole truck of "kawaii" over the model and left it dripping sparkles and rainbows onto the Wandering Isle.

A race known for its serenity, peacefulness, balance and, yes, love of a good strong drink - and yet the females resemble small giddy children prancing around carelessly, none of which appearance-wise taking the role of wise crones, stern warriors or calm, content sages. It's like the females never even saw a piece of the battles their race participated in.

And yes, I know the models aren't finished yet, but I truly hope that Blizzard decides to implement a greater variety of choice when picking "faces". NOT a variety only in markings/fur patterns, but in facial expression through different muzzles, eyes, etc.

Then again, looking at the Worgen... *sighs sadly*

Blizzard Entertainment introduces Blizzard Kidzz! {WoW}

Apr 1st 2012 5:32AM I just got up and in my sleepy haze totally thought this was legit... then I remembered what day it is. D:<


I would totally get these for myself if they were real though.

Mists of Pandaria: Female pandaren {WoW}

Mar 19th 2012 10:35AM While it looks great on the concept art, on the actual model I still think her face basically looks like this: :3

*sighs deeply*

Retribution paladin DPS broken after realm restarts [Updated] {WoW}

Feb 2nd 2012 6:53AM Ah man, my Pally is too low level to have SoT yet. No excessive dps for me then. Pity that.

Shifting Perspectives: Feral tactics for Well of Eternity and Hour of Twilight {WoW}

Jan 8th 2012 8:01PM "... where her abilities were one-shotters."
So when did Benedictus get a gender change? ;)

Anyhow, these intros are awesome - keep them up, I beg of you!
And thanks to this column I now want to gear my feral offspec. :/

Drama Mamas: The case of the disreputable doppelganger {WoW}

Jan 2nd 2012 3:08PM there is a lvl 62 DK with the same name that I gave my lvl 85 DK (both are female Belfs amusingly) and I already found my normal internet-handle being used at a forum unknown to me. As long as people are able to distinguish between me and the others I don't even care that much about my Doppelgänger (...yet).

Breakfast Topic: Did you accomplish your Winter Veil goals? {WoW}

Jan 2nd 2012 9:06AM I got the Meta-Achievement, which always makes me happy. And although Lumpy escaped my grasp, I received both the Raven Lord and the Blue Proto-Drake last night. I guess that makes up for it. :D
