Open debate about this, so curious on everyone's responses. A lot of girls in the past couple years are dressing more and more provocative and are upset when guys think they are sexy as appose to saying the outfit looks nice. An example, recently I just started watching High School of the Dead. A lot of people are dressing up as the main fighting female character. So far in the series, each girl is known at first glance by their underwear or boobs bouncing before you see their face. One TV ep was the girls showering and playing with each others breast, while the guys were talking guns and shooting each other. Knowing a series depicts females as sexual objects and guys as a killer, why, as a woman, would you dress up as those girls? If you do dress up as those girls, why would you expect a guy to say anything else then wow she is sexy and hot? The female characters were made and intended to produce those reactions from the male population.
So let me know what you guys think about this. Guys, do you think its true? Are these anime girls being made on the idea of smart women or sexual objects? Women, are these characters being chosen because they look great and you want to look hot too? or are you doing it because the character looks cool? or are you doing it because the character is very popular like Tifa from Final Fantasy is? And if your doing it based on popularity, are you realizing they are popular because they are extremely hot, sexual fantasy for men?
