Stop forcing me to wear high heels

Every single boot or shoe in NEX or available through the character creation thing has a massive heel on it. It's a joke and insanely misogynistic to have not even considered this massive oversight. I hate wearing high heels in real life as they are painful and extremely awkward to walk in and mostly only for pleasing dumb ass men.

CCP art team needs to pull their head out their ass and introduce some non high heels for female characters to wear. I'm supposed to be a spaceship captain. I need actual practical shoes. Male character's get them.

You could also fix this by removing the 'gender' requirement on clothing but I guess that's another post.

STOP FORCING WOMEN TO WEAR HIGH HEELS IN VIDEO GAMES


For anyone who is unclear this isn't a joke post or a troll. I legitimately think a game that offers character customization that forces me to wear high heels in 2012 is disgusting.

You say this isn't a joke post or a troll... but that's the troll right? I mean it just has to be.

There are NO high heel options for men!

This is an outrage, STOP forcing men to wear shoes without heels.

And tinsel. There is NO tinsel or pearl necklace option for men OR women in the NEX.

CCP DISCRIMINATE AGAINST LADYBOYS!

This matriachic insanity must NOT continue. Why do only women get pony tails and breasts?!

There's an 'ism' here just waiting to be thrown around.

Give me panties not briefs!

GAH!

The ability for male characters to not wear certain items is unfortunate but is not close to the same as FORCING women to wear high heels. At best high heels are uncomfortable at worst they can be extremely painful.

Dictating that women have to wear highly sexualized clothing that they would be uncomfortable wearing is simply not OK.

I'm flyin' a ship
Flyin' a big ol' ship
Pedal to the metal, hope someone doesn't give my can a flip
Rollin' down the overview until the break of dawn
Flyin' a ship with my high heels on

My ORE mining barge is northward bound
It's time to put that hammer down
Just watchin' as the AUs go flyin' by
I'm ridin' twenty thousand tons of steel
But it's sure hard to hold the wheel
While I'm still waitin' for my nails to dry

Oh, I always gotta check my lipstick in that rear-view mirror
And my pink angora sweater fits so tight
I'm jammin' gears and haulin' freight
Well, I sure hope my seams are straight
Lord, don't let my mascara run tonight

I'm flyin' a ship
Flyin' a ship
Got a load to carry and some eyebrows left to pluck
And I'm late for my appointment down at my hair salon
So I'll be flyin' a ship with my high heels on

Space. It seems to go on and on forever. But then you get to the end and a gorilla starts throwing barrels at you.

Oh look, another one of those threads that takes space on the first page promoting some useless cowdung while legitimate ideas get overlooked. Hooray for forums!

If you're gonna post here thinking your idea is the greatest thing since bacon and that it will save EVE and possibly all humankind with it, you're gonna have a bad time.

Says a lot about your attitudes towards women if you think this is useless cowdung...

CCP should just put some flats in NEX and charge 70 dollars for it. It'll be the monocle for the Eve feminist.

This reminds me of a Southpark episode...

"THIS IS LESBOOOOOOOS!"

C'mon... high heels? Really? It's a game, no need to make it all RL political.

Turn off CQ and pretend that you are a butch female captain wearing a uniform with military boots. Problem fixed.

look, considering the fact that the doors constantly jammed on our captains quarters and the maintenance teams are out on vacation no ones going to care what you look like anyway. Also given the fact that any one character can only see a portrait of you I think you need to settle down to the fact that ccp has more pressing matters to concern them at this stage.

Once walking in stations is actually implemented then I would expect even some flip flops available, time will tell I guess.

This is an important and severely overlooked game feature......oh wait. Nobody cares. To used an oft quoted expression where I work...."man up"

I would also like to have shoes without heels. Especially the ones with the label "Combat" on them.

How is it not bringing RL politics into a game to not give women one single practical pair of shoes? They're pilots, not executive assistants.

The vehement reaction against this is telling.

Totally agree. Even the combatish boots have heels.


I wonder if female Dust soldiers would have heels... are there female Dust soldiers?

I have seen the future, and it wears heels.

You do realise that a massive proportion of the "women" in online games are actually men, right?

And you know that cross dressing men just love the lingerie and heels.

So basically, most of the women in EvE are actually cross dressing men, all of whom will be wanting to wear high heals.

So it's kinda understandable that they left out anything without a heal as they didn't realistically expect to get any females playing.

Since you're quite obviously female (after all, no cross dressing men ever complain about having to wear high heals) I'm going to get behind your campaign if only because I think women in EvE should actually be women and you are one so, erm..... fancy a date?

How is having a female character crossdressing?

I think you might have taken that a little too seriously.

Did you know that high heels may improve the tone of a woman's pelvic floor, thus affecting female incontinence?
