Feminist Frequency - Lingerie is Not Armor
Just yes to all of this.
And not just in video games. Fnord12 and i just watched the Batman: Assault on Arkham animated movie and the outfits for Harley Quinn and Killer Frost were ridiculous when compared to what the male team members were wearing. An acquaintance tried to make the argument that they needed to be half undressed for ease of movement. Right. Because Deadshot and the Black Spider didn't also rely on agility. And that's in addition to the plan that for some reason required Killer Frost to be nude from the waist up and the various shots of both women from behind as they employed extra hip movement to their walk. There's a FemFreq video on that, too, btw.
remember when Cloak and Dagger swapped powers and he had to wear the costume with the big cut-out to his navel and she had the big cloak of consuming people? oh, right. that didn't happen.
You'll have to borrow fnord's copy of Cloak & Dagger #19 to find out what's happening in this panel, because I don't have a clue: http://www.oafe.net/blog/wp-content/uploads/2012/04/mmmcdag3.jpg
