using Morrigan and Isabela as examples of When Sexist Design Is Okay is exactly the wrong strategy to take with me.
I love Morrigan as a character. But I change Morrigan’s outfit as soon as I start putting her into battles, because what she’s wearing is ridiculous fanservice. She’s running around…
I understand what you mean but I disagree. Their outfits matches their personality.
They are two strong women that own their sexuality.
When you say everything people see about Isabela is sex, you’re probably right, but I don’t think she’s got a problem with that. That’s what she wants. And if she gets unwanted attention, she knows how to deal with it.
And she doesn’t need to dress up to be taken seriously because, 1 she doesn’t care what people think most of the time and 2 if she wants to be taken seriously she can show her skills, she can kick someone’s ass and put them back in place.
About Morrigan, she initiated sexual intercourse with you on a romance but she won’t take it any other way. It’s on her terms or nothing at all.
It is not a bad think for women to be sexy. A woman can be a sex kitten while being strong and intelligent.
Believe it or not, changing their appearances to be more “modest” is not doing them a favor, it’s an inconscious form of slut shaming.
PS Probably full of typos but I’m on the phone and in a hurry sorry.
PPS I’m not attacking you or anything I just want you to take into consideration my POW as supporter of said designs.
