People always seem to just run with the idea that “all interpretations are true”, but forget the corollary that “all interpretations are true so long as they’re rational and you can derive it from evidence in the text”. And by this, I mean that there’s a limit to fan interpretations/theories/headcanons that you can come up with before it sounds like you’re talking about a whole different work entirely.
There is also a death for the immortal jellyfish. He is very bored.

It doesn’t matter what your motives are. I am simply following orders. You can try all you want. I’ll never let you pass.
I wasn’t aware that strong, sexually empowered women are in fact a demeaning social trope.
If you had ever played the games, or even mildly researched them, you’d know that Bayonetta is both highly sexualized for the benefit of the viewer AS WELL as being sexually empowered for herself. If you want to hate the former, you have to hate the latter, and that’s rather misogynistic, don’t you think?
okay theres a difference between real people choosing to be sexualised for their own benefit and men designing female characters to be sexualised
no matter how you wanna dress it up as this Fictional Character Created By Real People as making her own choices. she still in fact was made by a person who choose to make her look like that
yes, it is a problem that the person criticizing games does not research or play the game but you have to remember who makes the games and who is deciding that the character is empower by those things [hint: its cis het abled white men]
the designer of Bayonetta is female, Mari Shimazaki. she said that the design was a self projection power fantasy to empower herself while feeling beautiful, what she “aspires to be like”. for her own sake.
do your damn research.
"it’s cis het abled white men"
…..you don’t play much, do you?
lmfao hows that research comin along tumblr
Bayonetta is one the most terrific, female-power fantasies I’ve seen since the gaming industry took off. Distinctly female yet completely working on her own terms, she show grace and power that utterly dominates every task she undertakes.
If you honestly believe that she is a sexist, misogynistic character then you honestly have not done the research and/or you ultimately believe that sexuality and female characters cannot coexist, which is ridiculous.
Anti-sex feminism needs to be thrown out. It denies a part of both human nature and art.
