Final Fantasy Sexist

Are the Final Fantasy games sexist

NOTE: Before you nag on me. I live in Hong Kong,
so eastern and western feminism may be different here.
Feminism in Asia and Japan may not be PC as is in west,
but these are just my opinions, so PRETTY PLEASE dont flame me ;_;

Final Fantasy games, despite FF6 and FFX2 having females as leads, SEXIST

Personally, I think so, compaired to other games like Rudra no Hihou (Rudras Treasure),
SD4: Legend of Mana and the SaGa series. Yeah yeah,
dont give me that lecture on how alot of Asian countries and Japan are anti-feminist,
when they are not. Women and Men work together as they do in the west and Women CHOOSE
whether they want to be sexpots or not.

Now, back to my rant here.
Why do most gamers say that alot of the heroines in the Final Fantasy games strike a blow for feminism. Au contrair!

On looks, why do most of the female characters look like bullimic, silicone pumped Brittney Spears or Barbie doll wannabes
And holding that stuff up to young girl gamers That is basically saying the message “IF you have a size zero to five figure,
have fake breasts and wear skin tight or revealing clothing, everything will be fine!” No wonder here in Hong Kong we have
little girls dressing all trampy and stuff. Im not saying that the girls should be overweight (UGH!), but at least have
them from size six to ten, or sizes twelve to fourteen and please, HAVE THE GIRLS WEAR ARMOR OR REAL CLOTHING!

Other than how the Final Fantasy heroines physical appearances,
most of them seem to be quite dependent on men or be really boy crazy.
Come on now, that is so 1980s video gaming. The only difference is,
that the girls of Final Fantasy have to join your party and have to learn to fight for themselves.
What message is this sending to Girl Gamers here in Asia
“You have to look attractive and have a man in your life. If you dont, you will be wicked.”

Here in Asia, there are just as many girl gamers as there is boy gamers, and girls play stuff from fighting,
to RPGs and Action games. And yes, I have seen positive female role models in alot of Japanese and eastern video games.
In Rudra no Hihou/Rudras Treasure, Riza is you typical paladin claded in armor and clothing, is hard working, has typical
female flaws lacking in FF heroines and does most of the hard work in Rudras world, more than oh, lets say Scion or Dune.
In SaGa Frontier, we were presented to Asellus, the first lesbian character in a Square RPG, willing to complement her own
destiny. And in the recent Seiken Densetsu 4:Legend of Mana, Corona is the oldest sibling of Bud, and seems to be in charge of
things, while Bud is just your typical goof-off little brother.

So see, there are decent female role models in Japanese video games! Why people overlook it, is indeed an unsolved mystery.

So before you nag on about the Grand Theft Auto series (while quite offensive and stereotypical, but nonetheless, politically incorrect fun),
check out the Final Fantasy games and how the females are portrayed. Disturbing thing is, unlike the Grand Theft Auto games (where no one is suppose
to be a role model!), these anorexic, boy crazy, super model heroines with silicone boobs are held up to girl gamers as role models here, which is
indeed ironic and hypocritical.
