My only complaint is that if Roll wears combat armor like this, she loses pretty much everything that makes her look feminine, being modeled as a young girl and all. I'd be able to get behind it a lot more if there was a break in the back for her hair to flow out of. Using her hair tie as a scarf, however, is a nice touch.

I also think that Roll would use some form of melee over a gun any day, but that's another argument for another day!

"Girls can't be girls unless they look at girly as possible!" -WhatsIt-ToYou, 2012 

It's not like Megaman has ever looked especially masculine for being a boy.
Because he's not a grown man, he's not even a human. Neither is roll.
Are you just uncomfortable with pushing your boundaries?

Way to distort my "complaint" and make a white knight of yourself.  It's been two years, even; I had forgotten that I had even written this.

Fundamentally, there's nothing wrong with putting a girl in a gender-neutral outfit, but if it makes her gender itself questionable, I'd expect them to make a point of it.  I'd say the same thing for boys, only I've never seen it (Though I think it could be potentially interesting, but this is deviating from the topic).  Since I don't realistically see anyone doing anything with gender-confusion and Roll's character (Largely because that is unimportant, as far as I can see), I'd expect to have her gender not be questionable—lest the audience gets confused, like they did when Zero first appeared onscreen in Mega Man X1.  It doesn't have to be blatant or even as large as the break in the back of the helmet I suggested two years ago; a couple locks of hair coming out from the front of the helmet would be enough.

I don't understand how that disposition could sound sexist, but I'd be happy to hear your explanation.

I like how "white knight" is the term applied to anyone that speaks out in favor of equality.

The fact that you posted it so long ago means nothing when we live in an infinite sea of immortal data.
I see it when I see it, and respond when I feel like it. 

So let me see if I follow your logic...
1. Giving a robot strands of hair makes it look like a girl,
2. But Zero having a lot of hair made him confusing to gender binary advocates,
3. But it's okay because he was a man,
4. But girls should still have a pink bow slapped on them so you know they're girls?

Also, I never directly accused you of being a sexist.
I just don't see why you have such concrete expectations of gender identity,
even when the subjects are non-organic robots.

It's like when they created Venus for that awful TMNT series back in the day, 
and gave her tits just so everyone was clear that she was a girl,
despite not only the fact she was a reptile, but also that they didn't go out of their way
to decorate the male turtles to identify them as male. It's an irrational expectation.

But what do I know? I'm just a girl, tee hee~!!

Well, when you're distorting my argument (Or misinterpreting, in which case, I remain happy to explain and reiterate) and making me appear the black knight, what better name for you than the white knight?

I was trying to say that Zero was a perfect example of how things can go wrong.  The gender-confusion he presented to people in that day did nothing but confuse people, while adding nothing to his character (Which was significantly lacking already).  I hate Zero's design with a burning, fiery passion, the unnecessary gender-confusion being one of the reasons.  On a related note, forget pink bows; they're gaudy and hideous to look at.

The snide comments (Such as the one you left at the end of this message) certainly would suggest that you think of me as sexist, but I disregard that for now.  I speak of these concrete expectations strictly from a design perspective.  Unlike reality, where things can simply be what they are and it doesn't particularly matter too much, everything that happens in a fictional world is intentional.  Aesthetics, personality traits, events, everything is consciously decided with thought and intent.  As such, I don't want any design that serves no purpose.  "Never do anything for no reason," like I always say.

To me, on the Internet, gender is irrelevant.  So is age, and race, and a good deal of other things you can discriminate based on in real life.  What matters to me more than anything is what you think and have to say.  And if I really didn't care what you thought or had to say, I would have ignored you.

Wow.

I read as far as "I hate his design with a fiery passion, and his gender confusion is a part of it."

Fuck you, man. You're just an asshole, and I am no longer wasting my time dealing with someone so close minded and spiteful.

You really are a dark knight. Good job man.
