glitchedpuppet raises a good point, although not a new one. What they talk about is a thing called "sexual dimorphism".

And games are slowly ditching this concept, as you can see in Dark Souls, Final Fantasy, Mass Effect and others (WoW to a certain degree, although they have "clothing" dimorphism, if you know what I mean…).

…but this is not exactly the best approach to the situation. "I will now buy your game"..? You care so much about such a small detail that you discredit THE WHOLE GAME for it..? Bitch, male characters of ANY species are usually less attractive than female ones in media, dimorphism or not, but I see no men complaining about bad portrayal of men, nor do I see games avoiding the trope having any more sales than others, because most people do not care that much, and justifiably so.

Buy the game based on whether you like the gameplay or not. Stop trying to make videogames, a way to distract yourself from reality, about real-life discourse. You will not make game developers fully ditch this trope by threatening to not buy their game, since all of them know there are 5 people willing to buy the game for every 1 person not buying it because of the trope.

Also, glitchedpuppet is being an absolute ass towards anyone daring to disagree on Twitter. That will not help, either.


I wouldn't have a problem with this comic if the proposed solution was More Monster boys, but no of course it's gotta be Ban the monster girls.

glitched puppet also seems to be one serious douche bag.

Why am not surprised someone with a "Ban the monster girls" message has this sort of attitude. Respect my opinion while I disregard and demean yours.
