Another hell tricky one which I feel I kind of already answered. Since I nominated ‘FemShep x Liara’ there, which is a total cheat, I’m just going to recycle it as an excuse to tell this short anecdote.
I got a chance to write about one of my favourite topics: Mass Effect’s FemShep.
"Distinct racial physiology is an opportunity to explore different standards of beauty".
Putting aside the question of the way fantasy uses the word “race” and “species” interchangeably while completely ignoring 2/3 of humanity for a moment…
What the fuck dudes. All these people have the same standard of beauty. BE THIN, BE MUSCLY, HAVE BIG BOOBS, HAVE CHEEKBONES.
