Am I the only one that feels Senran Kagura Burst is sexist?

#121BishtrainerTai16Posted 11/15/2013 12:56:41 AM
Yes, because there's hardly any fanservice for women. The only game I can think of that has it is MGS3. And logic applies, so Snake takes more damage from having less clothes on. Totally sexist.

No one complains about men being overly masculine. Why the hell is it wrong for women to be overly sexual?


Have you ever studied women's rights in your entire life?

Yes, quite extensively in fact lol. There isn't anything a woman should be ashamed of when girls are sexualized in games however. It's not an insult by men or anything. Women are being placed on a pedestal. If anything, I'd find it empowering if I was a woman.

more precisely the complaint is the objectification of women. I see no such thing in Senran Kagura. They are honorable ninjas fighting for the destiny of their clan.

If that's all it is with some fan-service thrown in, then yeah, there really isn't much in the way of outright sexism.

Whether it's presented tastefully or not is another thing entirely, of course, but I personally haven't seen or heard of something in the game being that objectifying.

It's very sexist yes. And I don't think that just because it's a video game that we shouldn't take it seriously, since the media we consume can definitely have an influence on our perceptions of our world.

Video games are art, and like any other art, they should be open to discussion.

You people are so immature.


Why else do you think there's so much hype about Senran Kagura?


Because of weeboos and lonely males.


*Calls people immature then proceeds to call people weeboos* nice job son you are now the bad guy

It's just a game. Who cares? Anyone old enough to be playing this game is already probably too set in their ways to have some sort of revelation about the treatment of women in society at large. This game isn't going to be a make-or-break point for anybody.

Even then, the point that it's sexist might be stretching things a bit. Objectifying, yes. But sexist? The dictionary definitions for sexism are...

1. Discrimination based on gender, especially discrimination against women.
2. Attitudes, conditions, or behaviors that promote stereotyping of social roles based on gender.

As far as I've heard, none of those things happen in the game. It's a bunch of females ninjas fighting for their clan and honor. Who all happen to have really large breasts for no purpose other than fanservice, which is objectifying. Whether the objectification in question is sexist or not, well, that's for you to decide.

People seem to forget that sexism is the unfair and unjust discrimination of a gender just because they're that gender.

Senran Kagura is a beat-em-up that uses large boobs to attract more people to buy the game. That's it. There's nothing more to it than that.

To be fair, I don't think it's intentionally sexist, but it's certainly capitalizing on the immature attitudes people have towards sex.


Yup. You could also take the view that it enpowers woman by showing them their sexy bodies are nothing to be ashamed about and...*bursts into laughter*

I couldn't keep a straight face when typing that. Its about fun with big bouncy boobies...and Ninja's. I suppose those are there as well.

Hell the director even admited its about the boobs. He even said this about the Vita game...

"But why is Marvelous AQL putting the next Senran Kagura on PlayStation Vita?

“Because I wanted to make breasts that could be licked,” said Takaki.

“Breasts are life, ass is hometown.”

Oh the battle system is apparently based on sadism and masochism...yeah.

According to dictionary.reference.com:

sexism [sek-siz-uhm]
noun
1.attitudes or behavior based on traditional stereotypes of sexual roles.
2.discrimination or devaluation based on a person's sex, as in restricted job opportunities; especially, such discrimination directed against women.

misogyny [mi-soj-uh-nee, mahy-]
noun
hatred, dislike, or mistrust of women.

I think the game is more misogynist than sexist.
