You were so you, and I was so me….And now I don’t know what we are
So I started playing Smite because a few friends wanted me to try it.
And when you start the tutorial, you play an Egyptian Goddess.
A white over-sexualised Egyptian Goddess…
So right now, I don’t really want to play much longer…
So, is anyone here playing? Should I try to…
Uhh no. First of all, most deity figures from ancient times bear little to no clothing at all. If I remember correctly, Neith is actually one of the characters who they gave MORE clothing too. Although that might be Kali. Actually… I think I have a video you guys can watch. These goddesses are NOT over sexualized. If anything, they are UNDER sexualized.

This video has literally no academic view on the subject whatsoever. You’d get the same level of conversation from the Smite subreddit.
More goddess in mythological culture like Neith and Aphrodite were often depicted naked and were naked or had very little clothing. Hi-Rez has spoken to this many times and said they aren’t changing the “small amount of clothing” because it is “accurate.” But heaven forbid a 16 year old boy see the midriff of a female character.
