Dear EVE Online players,


When I am bored a little bit I often click around and look at the characters you guys have created. One thing according to the female characters is very ... prominent: It seems you guys mostly like big racks and half naked, skinny bodies.

I know that with a probability of 80 to 90% a man created the character. I am not a feminist. I think this a firstly a questions of aesthetics which of course depends on personal views. But I ask myself is this the imagination you have how a woman should be? This is not an attack on you guys. And I do not want to start a discussion of what you all thing is beautiful. I only wanted to show a conspicuity.

I do not tell you what to do. EVE Online is a free game for which you all pay. You can do what you want. I only wanted to give my opinion.

Let me ask a question: If you (would be a female and) could design the male you want - would it be ugly as hell? Would he have small genitals? Would he be a big, fat and hairy bear with a tiny pen*s? I seriously doubt it, and I think most women would indeed create a male character they would like to look at aswell.

With this in mind - what's the point in making this thread anyway?


Hard to answer. Especially according to the reply of Remiel Pollard about the border between fiction and reality. No, I would not make a ugly guy. But what is ugly and beautiful lies in the eyes of the viewer. If I create a character it always flows in some ideals of what I find beautiful. But if I have a so complex character creator like in EVE Online I try to create a so realistic character as possible. And in reality not all woman have big breasts and are skinny. I am not a fan of this ideal of beauty. So this was the main intention of this thread, maybe. Will lead to some replies I guess.

I can honestly say I didn't go this route. I prefer B cups, small teardrop shaped beauties wrapped in a mildly form fitting t-shirt. Because unwrapping presents and finding two small handfuls of joy makes me happy. Big smile

When i was in school i learned that we all basicaly start off as women ( that must be the reason men have nipples). So i was thinking maybe thats the reason why big warm soft or small but firm and neat boobs make such an impact on real life and game decisions.

I a woman. My husband plays EVE as well, and has female characters with big racks angled in the avatars so he and his fellows can admire them.

I dunno, I just can't get upset over this issue. In fact, my husband and I laugh about it and we will occasionally share over-the-top avatars with each other to have a laugh about. It's a game, we're all here to have fun.

That is right. The gender is choosen very late in the development of an unborn child. But I think it is more a symbol for fertility. We are all still driven by instincts.

Your main problem is that you just let everyone know you are female.

Let us know how many PMs you recieve and how many offers you get to join a corp and join vent/mumble etc


Good luck

Occam's Razor. Most of us guys played with Barbie dolls as kids. If you want to blame someone for GiRLs creating over-endowed toons, then talk to Mattel.

Bullshit. I have a male and a female character. Besides I am a man in real life. And I search the suitable corporation for myself, no matter how many offers I receive.

Heh. Many years ago, my husband wanted to know why I giggled about his characters. So I finally broke down and told him how very, very easy it was for us women to pick out a toon that was created by a man/boy. He actually took it to heart, and makes his toons a bit more... realistic, let's say.

But yeah... overly muscular and as tall as toons can be made? Boy with the wrong idea of what attractively masculine is or man with insecurity issues. BIG rack and tiny waist? Nearly always a male player behind the keyboard (although I have knows some on line seductresses who... well, let's not go there).

We like women who can provide our offspring with sufficient milk and are not too heavy to carry around when they need resqueing.

BoBwins Law: As a discussion/war between two large nullsec entities grows longer, the probability of one comparing the other to BoB aproaches near certainty.

In reality some woman are skinny with big breasts after having implants usually. These woman are considered beautiful because being fat is sloppy and unhealthy. And big breasts is good for babies. This is whats beautiful though any ugly chick can find a guy that will get horny for her.

U are not a fan of this ideal probably because u dont match it. But theres no denying thats whats lusted after. I believe we have answered ur question that we like boobs and skinny. Ur not going to make some realize they actually like flabby chicks with flat chest so might as well move on

Just you wait until CCP lets us make avatars completely naked. They could charge 10 plexes for it and just buy themselves a new Ferrari now. Monocles aint got sh*t on this for enhancing the bottom line.

In reality there are varieties of female bodies and this is good. To be too skinny or to be too fat is both unhealthy. But this is not the topic here. What I hate are anorexic girls and woman, Botox, chirugic changed faces or artificial implants only to fit into some weird Hollywood beauty ideal. This is simply sick in my eyes. You can argue with me whether this is the case or not but in my eyes many female characters in EVE Online follows this "ideal".
