Daughters of Egalia.

What do I win?? Please tell me it's not a dragon with a huge jeweled codpiece.

badgerbag

It is now!

Arrggggghhhhhh!

I mean, er: gosh, thank you! It's an honor and a privilege! The dragon will have a special place on my shelf. And in my heart. Also it will cheer me up when I am blue.

Actually, it WOULD cheer me up whenever I looked at it. Not just because winning anything cheers me up, but because it would always remind me of Dragons With Boobs.

i really like the theory about the maid-to-dragon transmogrifications. transdragons? mtds?

btw, we should really post a link to your blog post on the fsfblog.

SciencePunk

Haha, that was hilarious! But I think you should point out that the guy who started it was asking a fairly decent question about how to differentiate male and female dragon-wotsits when drawing them.

From then on in, the single recognisable trait of females seems to be boobs according to these boys.

Any suggestions how the boy could solve his problem? I don't know enough about reptiles to know how the males and females tell one other apart. In fact, I'm almost certain that there are several species that make a point of blurring the distinction...

Here via /friends friends solely to say that I know the source of the menacing boob-warning symbol above, but that I can't stop to name it right now because I have to go and phone the housebound to tell him that it's really time he got a new peho. I can't think what he spends the housekeeping money on!

Ahem. A truly marvellous book.

badgerbag

Probably he spent it all on beard ribbons and frippery like that... Ah, menwim.

"because men want to fuck it"

Which has recently been determined (scientifically, natch) to be a very weak evolutionary selector, because men want to fuck most things anyway, female characteristics or not. I present as my evidence, "Animal, Vegetable, Or Kinda Turns Me On":

See? Science!

This may be of interest.

I didn't go too far in the conversation, But from the beginning it doesn't seem anything like you make it out to be. The pro-boobers aren't fighting for "big ol' boobies", just for enough suggestion of breast to Identify gender. And they aren't making a claim that its "the single recognisable trait of females", just one that's immediately visually apparent.

Drawing is hard, and it's a difficult way to convey information. Other visual clues of gender are not usable. Putting hair or make-up on them is silly, and clothing clues are alot more gender neutral in a fantasy setting.

They could try larger eyes, but I don't think that'll be enough to help the viewer.

Maybe later in the thread they get immature, but the ones starting the conversation weren't looking for an excuse to draw big ol' titties. They seem to be having a responsible, mature discussion about a sensitive topic. Its you all watching the conversation making the "haha boobies" jokes.

Feminists, they just think everything is funny! I've heard they're like that! The wenches.

"In fact the trend in that most annoying junk science "evolutionary psychology" is that pretty much the explanation for the existence of any supposed characteristic in women, mental or physical, is "because men want to fuck it"."

If you honestly think that evolutionary psychologists are this unified concerning their methodological principles, let alone on one this specious and absurd, then you should probably avoid commentating on the topic altogether. It's generally best to stick to commenting on things you're actually semi-informed about. Nothing validates blustering pseudo-intellectual rage than tilting at windmills, right?

Hilarious thread though. I'm in agreement there.

I just think lizards with tits is dumb. Is that so wrong?

I think the comment via the 'tail' and female butt is quite funny, unintentionally so, because there is copious amounts of writing (by men) from 1750-1900 about the erotic nature of the horse ass, and usually comparing it to female butts, and bustles, which only makes me think the guys are staring a little too long at different creature butts.

Yes, a deep and meaningful discussion on a sensative issue - now a genuine deep and meaningful discussion would be about D & D in game castrations, "You have taken X hit points, they hit your groin, you are now castrated" and how to appropriately draw that. Haha. Sorry, it is just in a combat system with lots of swords, that kind of stuff happened more oft in reality than the worry over dragon breasts.

You tit's make fire, mine must be a different design as they squirt face eating acid ala Aliens. I must come from a different Dragon clan.

I recently read a 2009 teen book called 'into the wild nerd yonder' where 'cool' girl loses hair streaks and cool hair color as she slowly gets sucked into D & D (by another girl, who happens to be a sadistic dungeon master), I THINK this was supposed to convince girls that D & D is 'cool'. But had sort of the type of 'moral meaning' of the way old juvie books used to be 'step away from D & D and go outside for a game of sports' now it is 'step away from the computer/facebook and try some 'interaction' through D&D'
