I wasn’t aware that strong, sexually empowered women are in fact a demeaning social trope.
If you had ever played the games, or even mildly researched them, you’d know that Bayonetta is both highly sexualized for the benefit of the viewer AS WELL as being sexually empowered for herself. If you want to hate the former, you have to hate the latter, and that’s rather misogynistic, don’t you think?

okay theres a difference between real people choosing to be sexualised for their own benefit and men designing female characters to be sexualised
no matter how you wanna dress it up as this Fictional Character Created By Real People as making her own choices. she still in fact was made by a person who choose to make her look like that
yes, it is a problem that the person criticizing games does not research or play the game but you have to remember who makes the games and who is deciding that the character is empower by those things [hint: its cis het abled white men]

the designer of Bayonetta is female, Mari Shimazaki. she said that the design was a self projection power fantasy to empower herself while feeling beautiful, what she “aspires to be like”. for her own sake.
do your damn research.

"it’s cis het abled white men"
"white men"
…..you don’t play much, do you?

Today Dallas, Ed and my sister took me out for a little photo shoot and it felt absolutely amazing! I always felt intimidated and self conscious by the way I looked and didn’t feel as if I measured up to the girls I saw online. Seeing myself from these different angles helped boost my self image and confidence! I never knew I was capable of looking like this but I just didn’t know the tricks! I’m really thankful I’m able to learn beauty techniques from my friends and it’s important to know that you’re prettier than you think you are :) 

Helped with this today. I think we did a good thing :) High-res

There’s like a million different ways to say “I love you,”
“put your seat belt on,”
“watch your step,”
“get some rest,” …you’ve just got to listen.
