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.

So I came across this add, ironically enough while reading a Cracked article about sexism in video games. And then when you click on the ad up there is takes you to this page. (2nd image)

Granted this one isn’t so bad, she’s got some proper pants on even if they’re a bit vacuum-sealed, but that metal bra must hurt, and her arrow is positioned completely wrong. Also, high heels, I just noticed that.

I don’t even know what to say about Wartune’s ads anymore that I haven’t already made a joke about.

    I mean…if gay dudes want their own gaming site then I say let them have it. Don’t be so homophobic.

    The more I look at it, the more it creeps me out that the archer either has her boots customized to allow her to bend...
