...I have to say, I'm just not misogynistic enough to want to play a game that has put so much emphasis on objectifying women.

Me either.  I couldn't even make it through character creation.

Free yourself.  Humans are sexual beings.  Repressed sexuality leads to insanity.  Throughout human history who has gone to fight and die in wars?  Who works the dangerous jobs?  Sex isn't the enemy. Objectifying women?  Please...

You seem to think I'm a prude.  I'm no porn fiend, but I'm okay with it in moderation, so you assume too much.  Anyway, prudishness has nothing to do with women being objectified so most of what you're saying there doesn't make sense in context.

I don't think anyone who knows what it is would suggest this game doesn't objectify women, especially with those ad slogans and a part of the game involving revealing soft porn pictures. 

If I had to describe what I meant by saying I'm "not misogynistic enough," it makes me uncomfortable how over-the-top they are with thrusting cheesecake in your face in hopes you'll cough up money.  It's not just insulting to women, it's insulting to me.

But that's just me.  Sexual objectifiation may not be a problem for you, so if you're okay with that by all means enjoy the game for what it is.

I am more than some of my parts

I don't think it objectifies women, or at least not all women.  Just the sexy ones. The ones that put out the effort (or lack of it) to avoid being objects of sexuality are clearly not portrayed in this game.

 

All of my posts are either intelligent, thought provoking, funny, satirical, sarcastic or intentionally disrespectful. Take your pick.

I am quite certain that all the complainers about these ads have clicked those links numerous times..."just to see what filth is behind it". Because the people that complain the most about something are usually the biggest offenders to those 'crimes' as well.

ROFL.

Any fool can know. The point is to understand.

All the sex stuff aside the questing and skill tree just kinda sucks.

I like the robot suit, the naked chicks and their terribly unfunny tongue in cheek humour. So bad it's good kinda stuff.

Play for fun. Play to win. Play for perfection. Play with friends. Play in another world. Why do you play?

It is lameish, classic F2P game play.

There is a large population of players though that I saw. TBH the chat was reasonable when I was logged in.

As a bright note in 4 hours or less of total game play I did see 2 GMs in game, on chat, bnning goldsellers, and interacting with players.

Meh

Playing a wierd ass semi-porn MMO or watching hentai doesn't count as expressing your sexuality. That requires going outside, meeting other people, and you know... bumpin' uglies.
