​Overwatch players have always loved event skins. These skins follow a specific theme and are usually centered around a specific time of the year. 


Currently, as the players are celebrating the Summer Games, many players are rejoicing about the new funny and casual skins. However, ​according to a report by TechRaptor, one parent complained about the new skins introduced by Blizzard. He thinks they are too darn sexy:


​"WHAT? What about this skin has anything to do with the character you’re building in McCree? It’s not fun, it's not silly, it has nothing to do with being a futuristic cowboy LARPer. It just reduces McCree to another bland male sex symbol, with his shredded abs and whatnot. We aren’t looking at a Tracer pose here, this isn’t a character who is in part defined by flaunting her sexuality. This skin says to the player base, oh we’ve got all these cool diddly-doodly diverse characters, but at any moment we are willing to reduce them to sex symbols to help boost our investment game."

According to Ned_of_House_Flanders, skins like Mercy and Widowmaker’s are just a bit revealing. He particularly pinpoints McCree’s as the No. 1 example; he bashed the consistency of his skin from his open toed sandals to his straw hat.

He made known that the newest McCree skin is, according to him, is neither satire nor related to lore -- it even has nothing to do with a futuristic cowboy. For him, he sees McCree as another typical generic male sex symbol.

Maybe Ned_of_House_Flanders could have a point, but you can't just blame Blizzard for it. Sexualizing characters, both male and female, is a common event across many titles. 


Though, with a name including Ned Flanders, this rage could all be one big troll. 


Troll or concerned parent? We may never know!
