Escher Girls

Float like a butterfly, Sting like a WTF!?

This is a blog to archive and showcase the prevalence of certain ways women are depicted in illustrated pop media, specifically how women are posed, drawn, distorted, and/or sexualized out of context, often in ridiculous, impossible or disturbing ways that sacrifice storytelling.

See the "About" section in the sidebar for more details.

Very interesting and tragic - Jimquisition brings up the creepyness of game publishers

If you had missed it I think this is interesting: Jimquisition brings up the creepyness of the attitude towards female protagonists by the gaming industry higher-ups.

This was very interesting (barring the ending where I didn’t like his implication that any men turned off must be secretly gay themselves, or his sexual taunts at them).  Especially the part about publishers specifically saying they didn’t want to put the heroine on the cover of the game, and that a developer was told that their heroine couldn’t have a straight relationship because it would turn off the straight male audience.

    Remember guys, the games industry doesn’t hold you in that much more regard than women.
