*grabs her deck*

The women are definitely curvy and ample. Which is OK by me, cause I'm like that The lady of the harvest I can identify with my sister I won't comment about who I resemble. I think he just had my sister and myself in mind. Though I'd like to know what's going on with Epona's Wild Laughter lol

I don't think the deck is sexist. He could have had a couple of near naked men in the deck though Maybe next time *crosses fingers*

Shock value indeed, not my cup of tea... But I think the thread was mostly about the fact that Female Fae show their breasts so often in this deck, and Male Fae don't show almost anything...

I think also because breasts also have connotations of nurturing and motherhood

I would find it odd if the Female Fae would have wisps of gossamer over the breasts, as they have a naturalness with nakedness that humans don't...

But there are... Journeyman for example is completely naked. Gnome King at Faeries of the Future is completely naked (well, he has a hat...) as well as another gnome that is in there. The pixies in The Faery who was kissed by the Pixies are almost all naked except for hats. Mikle a Mukle is almost naked (again a hat). Bodach from The Bodachious Bodach is naked, and so and so on and so on

That's funny Kahlie. The men you mentioned, well I wouldn't exactly call them attractive. I agree with LB Not my cup of tea lol

Himself isn't a bad card or the piper. Those two lads near naked would've be OK, but I want to see a real man Hope you're reading Froud

LOL. Why are you looking for a real man in a Fae Deck? The Female Fae don't look that much like women either, I think... maybe it's the Frog legs and the tails that do it... or the wings

I find all Fae to have a certain attraction to me... but since it was asked if he was sexist, I found it safe to point out that naked Male Fae are abundant too

Sage comes by a lot for me too, and he's very attractive in what he represents.

How do you like Sylvanius then?

Well, think on the bright side... You always have the Fae Guide Card... You could draw what you want it yourself! =) And then scan it and send it to the rest of us!

Within the lines of public decency, of course
