@apdls said:I don't think Abby's thoughts on Bayonetta are fair. Actually, there is one aspect I do think it's fair to say is wrong outright - the idea that she is somehow designed for the pleasure of men. I hate this argument, because it isn't true and takes away from her designer. I don't want to be harsh or criticise someone's personal taste, but I think Abby was unfairly assuming her intent.Not only is it reducing character design to something as one note as pure sex appeal, it's also insinuating that designing something for the pleasure of men is inherently a bad thing.If I went into a store selling romance novels and complained that a book was designed for the pleasure of women I'd be laughed at and told I should look somewhere else. And they'd have a point.
