Was lookin’ through some old art to update my portfolio site and came across some stuff I had never posted here! I definitely wanna share some of the better drawings though! Here’s my piece from Kirby’s Dream Zine.
Shucks! Thank you kindly.
I was just AMAZED by her willful ignorance. What kind of feminist (or anyone for that matter) wouldn’t be excited about a powerful female protagonist who is proud of her sexuality? By once more placing blame on the male viewer, Anita is not only demonizing men, but erasing any other player’s sexual or gender identity. Who is to say that a gay man doesn’t enjoy Bayonetta’s design? On what authority does Anita Sarkeesian have to say that a trans-identified lesbian doesn’t adore the gameplay?
Based on her tweets, I think Anita is weirdly puritanical and hardly sex positive.. which is very confusing. Sexualization is not inherently negative. Sexual objectification can be because people should never be reduced to mere objects (unless that is something they explicitly desire), but sexualization is not bad because (almost all) people are sexual and sex is a positive thing. That being said, Bayonetta is far, far from being an object. Hell, if anything, she’s closer to being the objectifier with how hard she cases Luka. She writes on his face with lipstick, for fuck’s sake.
Also, in the first game, that tiny lollipop. I love it. She’s clearly sexual, but she relishes in it. In one’s mind, the classic lollipop imagery is usually associated with a young, tiny waif licking an over-sized giant lolly to possibly imply submission to the viewer (which is STILL not a bad thing because no one is forcing her to lick the lolly), yet the one Bayo keeps around is merely an accessory and is so teeny tiny that it’s laughable when she just plops it in her mouth like it’s nothing, implying that the viewer’s equipment may not be enough to satisfy her, and yet again, putting her in control.
I really don’t think it’s taking things too far to say that Bayonetta could be seen as a very positive symbol for feminine sexuality within video games, and if Anita would take five minutes to explore this character, the story, and the game’s mechanics without nearly fainting at the hint of boob, maybe she’d see that.
