does the person on the nintendo post even know anything abt climate clothing bc like. the gerudo outfits make zero sense. u dont wear bikinis in the desert or u would fry in the sun like an egg yolk. u wear loose, light clothing that covers as MUCH skin as possible bc that protects it from the sun. u know like, actual people that live in desert climates?? tf??
Also, Olivia’s clothing makes zero sense because almost every island Captain is dressed better for the weather?? And she isn’t even close to water her specialty is rock type so??
As a person who lived in tropical climates, that’s not….. a terrible thing to wear but unless you’re going to the beach you’re going to suffer. Plus, their is no! reason! for! her! to! be! in! heels!!!! That’s literally such an ineffective way to dress!!
And you cam see that this is a common thing that Nintendo does with black women. They’re sassy and “”exotic””
Moving onto the subject of Twintelle! Let’s look at the other ARMS female fighters.
Ribbon Girl: A short skirt but has workout shorts underneath them, which makes sense it’s very practical!
Min Min: Same thing for her, a short skirt with slightly longer workout shorts!I mean it’s an ass shot which is…. great but I’ll leave that alone for the moment.
Mechanica: I mean the only thing you can see is her head… so no comment
But then you get to Twintelle and her outfit is very different from what the other female fighters are wearing?
She has skin tight clothes and isn’t wearing a skirt. Which all the female characters have skin tight shirts but there’s something different about Twintelle’s. I’ll let you marinate on that.
She has oiled up skin and yes, I know the other fighters look shiny but there’s a difference in shiny and intentionally oiled up (especially since nintendo loves their oiled up dark characters)
The way Twintelle stands, walk, looks is all COMPLETELY different than the other female fighters!!! She has an over exaggerated ass (which they kinda do with Min Min but I will not speak on that) and everyone else is wearing sneakers yet she’s wearing heels!! She’s obviously supposed to be the “”sexy one””
and tbh when Arin said she was his favorite she was dead to me
And as for the entirety of the Gerudo race, read this cause it’ll do a better job then I ever could.
And Marina they have no excuse for. It’s…. so blatant. I can’t even say anything just go look at pictures of her standing next to Pearl. Then compare her to Callie and Marie. Just???????? Okay.
Nintendo has a race issue and this is 1) nothing new and 2) something white
men people love to ignore. I’m not the first person to say something, I’m not the last. And y’all need to stop acting as if it’s “empowering” or “outstanding “””””feminism”””””” that all of Nintendo’s darker characters are far too sexualized. If you only support dark characters when they’re eye candy then I have a surprise for you!! You are racist!!!!! Congrats!!!!!!!
As a preemptive measure, if there is hate send to me for this please use MLA formatting.
This got so intense I’m sorry. Liking these characters doesn’t make you a bad person btw, but please consider why you like them if you do, especially if you aren’t black nor brown. Dark skinned folks (mostly women) constantly have to fight for people to see them as anything more than sexual objects for white folks.
