Sexism Takes The Sexy Out Of Cosplay (NWS)

Sexism Takes The Sexy Out Of Cosplay (NWS) | Sex Positive | Scoop.it

They say that “surge of ‘fake geek girls’” who are “pretty and wearing something revealing” are quickly “labeled cosplay ‘celebrities’ and are featured on dozens of websites” as authorities to the detriment of other costumers and hobbiests. In other words, the media packaging of traditional beauty standards have gotten in the way of the fun for everyone in cosplay.

Censorship games regarding women & sex fantasies.

I don't like to put really adult stuff here -- but the sexism in this really can't be ignored. At least it shouldn't be ignored.

If only the ratings agency looked as closely at gender bias as it does at consensual sex, it might do some good
