I DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU ALL, BUT A FEMALE SQUALL FOR FF8 WOULD HAVE BEEN COOL.

Based on FF8 Characters, Female Squall is technically Ultimecia.
All we need now is a human Angelo pic.
I don't think Nomura designed FFXII's characters.

Why does she need to be sexed up? She's a fucking soldier. She shouldn't have to show of breasts and thighs.


I entirely agree with the sentiment of your post, but I feel compelled to point out that the clothes you see Squall (and everyone else) wearing for 99% of the game is his civilian clothes, not his military uniform.

Well, the SeeD military uniform for girls in FF8 had a really, really short skirt, so I'm not sure that argument holds water.

Nah, that picture just has trouble loading for some reason. I've seen it vanish a few times.
That's fine by me, but sexing up when not necessary... especially when it's not in the nature of the character? I'm pretty damn sure that Squall - male or female - would dress like the default design - simple with adornments, comfortable and easy to move. I don't need to quote the shit I wrote on rmw about appropriate clothing do I?
It was just a joke. No need to push things this far.

You could have just let this thread go, instead of digging it up. Just drop that attitude, you're being really annoying and hostile.

Actually, I'm a bit curious if you'd be willing to supply a link. :X

This is important, and you of all people should listen up.

Dude, seriously not cool. She has a good point. Just because you don't agree with it doesn't mean you should respond that way.

It is, if the thread was something intentionally (and/or actually) sexist. However, it was such a simple thread of "Hey, maybe Cloud would look like this if he was female!". And for some reason you guys just had to make it more controversial. Equality is all fine and good, but you guys are really overreacting about this.

What was really not cool is the way Liberty responded. Just because you don't like something doesn't mean you have to be hostile and create controversy about it.

Because it's a fanart and they want to make her look more attractive. Simple as that. Same with male characters. You want to see badass female characters with appropriate clothing? There's plenty of them out there.

I love how attractive is synonymous with sexed up... Oh dear, what happened here?

Not quite offended, but more like disturbed with her attitude. I thought she was drunk or her account was hijacked by someone else.

If any woman at any time has anything to say that is of any degree of importance or relevance, immediately disregard as drunk. *kawaii-desu*

Welp, Welp! might not be the best place to discuss character aesthetics and sexualization anyway.
If anyone wants to start a topic in the GD&T forum, I'm sure many of us have an opinion on the subject.
