Street Fighter has ALWAYS had 'idealized' characters, as have MOST media in general. What I find to be funny is that no one cares about the blatant racist portrayal of ALL the characters. And I have a theory as to why: It is inclusionary. No one is 'safe' or off limits. I also believe that to be true of all the character's designs, female AND male. Most of the men are rippling ponds of muscles, and on average show much more skin than their female counter parts. Where is the outrage about the potrayal of the men in the game?
I need to make sure this point hits home: I am a feminist. Women and men of all colors should be treated equally, and in the case of Street Fighter they are. On closer inspection it looks like the men are more tilted toward eye candy. If anything the females need to catch up.
