Again, 'inspired' doesn't actually excuse anything. You're laying the blame for Square's psychotic design decisions at the feet of the french when the things are so vastly different from each other that...Hell, I could easily be inspired by the sound of raindrops into setting a fire. It's meaningless and doesn't excuse, qualify or mitigate anything. French medieval style doesn't suggest Kuja's outfit to anybody but the already insane.
You're acting as if there is something to be excused in the first place. o.o I think Kuja looks lovely. I'm just saying where the concept came from. I mean, of course the outfit is going to be more extreme than anything from actual history. This is a video game. But the nobility did wear effeminate and flamboyant outfits, which Kuja's certainly is.
You're acting like femininity is a bad thing when a guy has it.
It kind of is though. There arent that many people in this world that like feminine guys. I really dont know any women that date any fem guys. Im in my 30s. I literally have not met a single woman that dated a fem guy. Not one.
Now, I know some guys that like fem guys. Thats entirely different, and pretty rare.
