The fabulous Humon on deviantART just posted this up. As soon as I saw it, I thought of this blog.
Part of her comment about it:
…I’ve always been an “all or nothing” kinda’ girl when it came to skimpy armor, meaning either both men and women wear proper armor, or broth men and women wear ridicules ineffective armor that shows too much skin. It’s when only the women look like fantasy strippers that I get a bit pissed off.
When I was a horny teenager being bored in school I made up a type of warriors that as a rule wore very little armor as a way of saying, “Fuck you! I don’t need armor to beat you!” to their enemies, and to feed my latent dominatrix mind they were of course ruled by a warrior queen. People within the universe were just as confused about the skimpiness as people in our world would be, so lets just say people noticed them.

So she gets the linkage and pageviews she deserves. :)
And you’re right, I am quite amused by this. xD At least in her world, people are quite confused about what’s going on. I’ve always wondered, in the superhero or video game worlds, do people stare at the female heroes and go “WHUH?” (Also, here they have a dominitrix queen, what’s like… Psylocke’s excuse? Or is Xavier secretly a dominitrix king? Or Cyclops. >_>)
