Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I wouldn't say BW was a major character in IM2. She was only slightly more prominent than Tony's chauffeur.
She's definitely interesting enough to get her own film, though. Her implied backstory is compelling and she's fun to watch. Renner's Hawkeye is boring as fuck, though. I'm not a big Renner fan anyway, but if I was just going on his portrayal in the movies I would have no interest in watching him for two hours.
I had a conversation about Japanese women climbing steep star hill climbs in high heels, so yeah, it happens. But if you're a warrior for a living, or in a survival situation, you'll learn better soon
In regards to sexism, it's mainly that heels are often designed to make you more sexually appealing or to show that you don't need to be able to be highly mobile - like long nails show you don't use your hands. There are a lot of options for inadvisable footwear in a combat situation, but in a lot of media, heels are the go-to on women.
While I'm not arguing with the idea that heels are stupid combat gear, it's interesting to note that professional dancers - especially ballroom - wear heels and do crazy steps, including leaps, flips and pirouettes. The men often wear stupidly-high platform shoes, as well.
So while wearing heels is definitely going to make your job harder, it is actually possible to do insane shit while you're wearing them.
