She designed Bayonetta/Cereza to be “a power fantasy for how she wishes to be.”
In other words, she modeled it after what she wants to be, a strong beautiful bad ass woman. So it wasn’t designed to be “hur dur juts fur men”.
All it took was a simple Google search to find that out.
Yeah this kind of thing really bugs me, no one calls out male characters who are half dressed and sexual as being sexist (jrpgs have enough of them) but god forbid its a women who wears her sexuality on her sleeve
I’m a women and I fell in love with Bayonetta! I’m even forcing my bf to bring over his wii u to play the new one. I’ve always been so shy about even dirty talk with my own boy that I was downright jealous of how comfortable and proud she was of herself. Being sexual and being powerful are not mutually exclusive things in women and I think it’s kind of sexist to think males can have that kind of fantasy and not women
And if anyone wants to make a game where a man gets naked to do powerful attacks go ahead, I’ll play it too!
I’m happy you’re not the only person not impressed by this con. =)
