About

Tomboy Mandalorian refers to a fan-made large-breasted tomboy character Rahab created by artist @DeputyRustArt loosely based on a female Mandalorian character from The Mandalorian television series. As the fan art became viral, multiple Twitter artists contributed their versions of the character in mid-November 2020.

Origin

On November 13th, 2020, episode three "Chapter 11: The Heiress" of season two of the television series The Mandalorian premiered.[1] In the episode, the design of female Mandalorian armor is shown, with its breastplate including the so-called "boob armor" element. On November 14th, 2020, feminist media critic Anita Sarkeesian tweeted[2] a still image from the episode featuring characters Bo-Katan Kryze and Koska Reeves both wearing the armor, writing "Lady Mandalorian’s have boob armour? Oh come on seriously." The post received over 250 retweets, 3,600 likes and 14,200 replies.

On November 15th, artist @DeputyRustArt tweeted[3] that Sarkeesian's post gave him an idea for making an art of "Tig biddy tomboy mandalorian" (shown below, left) Later on the same day, @DeputyRustArt tweeted[4] an artwork of a large-breasted tomboy Mandalorian warrior loosely based on the design of Koska Reeves (shown below, right). The tweet received over 6,800 retweets and 49,400 likes in three days.

I don't get how people fail to see the irony and hypocrisy of the "male fantasy" argument. Simply put, saying "This is clearly meant to be attractive and therefore it's sexualizing the character" is saying a lot of things at once that I doubt these people would want to say out loud on their own.
>Attractiveness is objective and men are only attracted to this
>Women with features that align with the "male gaze" are victims/sexualized/privileged (or all of the above)
>Lesbians don't exist
>Women who do not exhibit features of the "male gaze" are not sexual or attractive to the general population and people should form relationships with them out of pity or regardless of them being "unattractive" (even though attractiveness is completely subjective and odds are someone will find someone who isn't "conventionally" attractive attractive)

They're accidentally both puritans and bigots. Be proud of your sexuality, be confident. Spartans wore armor that was modeled after abs, so even if totally fictional characters wore armor that made them look hot, what the hell's wrong with that?

Also, Tomboys are fantastic. Bless this man.
