"But there were two things that stood out from my conversation with her. The first was when I tried to play devil’s advocate, by asking if having super busty objects of wish fulfillment were cancelled out by having ultra ripped, musclebound male characters like Marcus Feenix from Gears of War. Her response, I thought was very enlightening: “It’s not an equivalent situation and here’s why. The video game female character is someone the male player aspires to have, whereas the video game male character, is someone the male player aspires to be.” I never really thought of it that way. In both situations, the goal is to appeal to the male, and while the latter may appeal to some females, Feenix isn’t sexualized in the same way. The second item that was also noteworthy, was when Celia recalled an instance regarding a friend of hers. This person was the lead designer on some game, but unfortunately was constantly mistaken for a booth babe because she happened to be quite attractive."
