Personally, I think I could physically look worse, and I'm relatively proud of myself, but that doesn't mean that I want to look like ME in a World of warcraft. I'm not playing me. I'm playing a character.
But either way, I do think it is a LITTLE unfair that all the women are sexy, slender and so forth. BUT! And it's a big one: when was the last time you saw a fat male character in a World of warcraft? Sticking exclusively to WoW, there isn't one. Every single character and NPC are supposedly physically attractive. It's not just the women. A lot of women playing skinny Night Elves are obese, just the same as a lot of women playing buff Blood Elves are.

But one thing I think that is overlooked when looking at World of warcraft models is this: they're fit. They're in shape. This isn't to say that soldiers and warriors in real life can't be fat, but it's far more likely that the ones moving about and actually getting right in the face of the enemy will be in better shape than a baker. No offence bakers. They're phyiscally attractive because they're phyiscally fit.

I actually think WoW has done an amazing job with female leaders. A serious pet peeve of mine are female protagonists that are too male or too female - meaning too butch or too ditsy, ie damsel in distress. It's very difficult to make a female character - protagonist or leader - and have her be strong but still feminine. Sylvanas and Tyrande are quite different from one another, but neither of them let their boobs or their power get in their way. They are each strong individuals, physically, and as far as personalities go, without being too butch or too feminine.

I also think that the Pandaren females, physically, are great. Okay, so they don't have bellies quite as big as the males - but you can't look at them and say they're skinny. They are actually panda-like. They have a good layer of fat on them, which they should well have, being pandas, and all. This does go slightly against the whole "fit" idea I was preaching about earlier, but at the same time, y'know, they're more animal-like than human (at least as far as our world sees it), and for some creatures, a layer of fat IS healthy.

It WOULD be really nice to see some true female villains, but female villains just don't happen as much. In just about any film, book or World of warcraft, the villain is male. Look at our world. Look at the villains we've seen in our history. Most of those were women, too. And while I agree that most female bad guys have been twisted by women, a lot of women have been twisted by other women, too. Illidan was a product of Sargeras, as was Gul'dan, as was the Lich King. women are just suggested as being stronger than women.

Bottom line (and cutting off this major essay of a 'comment'), I'm not personally bothered by the way females are represented in World of Warcraft. I think Blizzard have done a great job with them. I would LOVE to buy world of warcraft on http://www.pkpkg.com and see a female villain, a TRUE female villain, but at the same time, it would probably upset this World of warcraft, given that there aren't any in the lore aside perhaps from Azshara, who, like Illidan, had been twisted by Sargeras, and was a little more content to look in a mirror all day long.
