    A "Real Human" wouldn't wear that? I've seen plenty of feminist extremists protest full-nude. Heck, I knew a girl in highschool who routinely wore significantly less than Faye. A sports bra and short-shorts. The war against the female body in media never ceases to perplex me. Are women equal to men or are they inherently shameful to look at? I don't recall any hubbub surrounding the attractive men in the Twilight movies that girls were furiously jilling themselves to, and I had no problem with it despite how un-obtainable some of their body types were for most men.

    Don't be fooled into thinking this is about over-sexualizing Faye. This is about self-conscious women getting jealous/upset over the idea of a hot lady on screen. It's exactly the same reason we stopped seeing cheerleaders on TV about 15 years ago. 40+ women started sending in loads of letters complaining to broadcasting companies that they were upset over the attractive young girls on TV. If Faye was 400 pounds nobody would be complaining because the fragile ladies out there wouldn't feel threatened.

    The bottom line is: are we supposed to let women dress how they want or not? I think they should be able to dress however they want but they need to accept the consequences as well. Faye dresses like that for the sex appeal advantage it gives her over men in the shady underworld in which she operates. If Faye was a businesswoman and they portrayed her wearing her usual outfit to a job interview, then I would understand the problem here but her outfit is consistent with her character. It saddens me that Faye's attractiveness causes some people to not view her as a potentially "real person". If I looked like Faye and hung around in casinos, I'd dress like that too if it gave me any semblance of an advantage.

    If you go to any gay rights or feminist rally you will see plenty of women who don't even bother wearing tops or pants. Some just walk around in thongs. So yeah, that seems a bit silly to me. It is like a sexy woman can't be sexy unless they (the PC police) are okay with it. The character is meant to be vibrant and sexy to counteract the violence of what is happening in the show. I am not suprised though with these changes, not after what they did with female MK characters.
