I hope I'm not the only one who thinks this
I get really really annoyed with how many 'skimpy dressed sexy female' mods there are. It's really out of place if you ask me. Skyrim is a land of snowy mountains, rugged terrain, hostile wildlife, and bearded people. And to see someone with a beach body, and very little in the way of armor or clothing in this cold, dangerous land is just stupid in my opinion. I don't mean to offend anyone. I'm just stating my opinion. Again, I hope I'm not the only one who thinks this.

Thanks for your time.

That's why there is the Skyrim Modesty Mod - covers up Aela's side-boob (shame that), gets rid of the cleavage windows in vampire and fur armor, the barmaids aren't falling out of their dresses anymore.

It's one of the most discussed issues here besides "Stormcloak vs. Imperials" and "My game crashes".
Nope you're not the only one. I use all the filters necessary on the Nexus to avoid that kind of stuff and save some facepalms, though is their right to play their game in any way they want.

What really bugs me is the fact that many of these guys demand respect and ask for tolerance towards their fond of barbies with thongs and nipple-covers, but get pissed, whine and troll when there's a mod that takes out the skimpyness of a vanilla female armor. Yay for double standards!

monkeymancometh, I think the problem is less of installing them and more with them actually existing. But thats the problem. Some guys try to find a way to get a boner from video games, and with Skyrim having detailed graphics and being pretty lifelike, it was a huge target for pedophiles. They disgust me too, and KSMKOC, your logic is awesome. The problem is though, having Skyrim mods make you feel like a god, and most likely people take that power overboard- in a creepy, sexual way.

My girls are fully clad armour though there is a skimpy set as well. But have winter clothes that you put on when in older parts of Skyrim and caves etc would be better.
I never actually have checked to see if a mod does that.(add clothes only as you enter these places and this is done automatically)

I agree with you, OP. I also don't like how most of those mods also include makeup and hair that looks like you are on an 80's porn shoot. The denizens of Tamriel are living what is essentially a 13th century lifestyle; a world without central heating, indoor plumbing and even toilets. The people look dirty and haggard for a reason.

and women were treated worse since pretty women were considered "witches" and burned at the stake or beaten n killed. In the case of braveheart used as "Prima Nocte", and thus newlyweds were given to nobles to be "used". I guess that should be in the game as well since its historical. Also, slavery should be used and have animated people whipping others.. I guess this is the reason why Morrowind had slaves and were thus "taken out" in Oblivion+

"Civil authorities burned persons judged to be heretics under the medieval Inquisition. William Graham Sumner says burning heretics had become customary practice in the latter half of the twelfth century in continental Europe, and that death by burning became statutory punishment from the beginning 13th century. Sumner notes that death by burning for heretics was made positive law by Pedro II of Aragon in 1197, in 1224 Frederick II, Holy Roman Emperor, made burning a legal alternative, and in 1238, it became the principal punishment in the Empire. On Sicily, the punishment was made law in 1231, whereas in France, Louis IX made it binding law in 1270."

"The last to have been condemned to death for "petty treason" was Mary Bailey, whose body was burned in 1784. The last woman to be convicted for "high treason", and have her body burnt, in this case for the crime of coin forgery, was Catherine Murphy in 1789. The last case where a woman was actually burnt alive in Great Britain, is that of Catherine Hayes in 1726, for the murder of her husband. In this case, one account says this happened because the executioner accidentally set fire to the pyre before he had hanged Hayes properly."

"Petronilla was tortured and forced to proclaim that she and Kyteler were guilty of witchcraft. Petronilla was then flogged and eventually burnt at the stake on 3 November 1324, in Kilkenny, Ireland. Hers was the first known case in the history of the British Isles of death by fire for the crime of heresy. Under torture, Petronilla claimed she and her mistress applied a magical ointment to a wooden beam, which enabled both women to fly. She was then forced to proclaim publicly that Lady Alice and her followers were guilty of witchcraft."

"Most of the complaints concerned pregnant women, infants, young children and lactating mothers who suffered from unexplained and sometimes fatal maladies. Such misfortunes were commonplace at a time when only half of all babies made it past their first birthday. If the mother or her family felt inclined to blame this on supernatural forces, the most likely culprit to single out would be an elderly woman who had some encounter — even a seemingly benevolent one — with mother or child. "

Guess they used the tcl console command.

Personally, I don't think any modern woman would like go back in time and live as a common female during the 13th century, maybe a noble-woman, but definately not a peasant.

"In the 13th and 14th century women were not valued near as much as men were. Not much respect was giving to women and girls. Often people practiced polygamy, which means the husband had more than one wife. Women were the keepers of the house, and men consider them weak and unable to do anything other than cook and clean. If the women were rich and the husbands were of fighting or traveling the wife’s would be left in charge of the castle (“Roles of Women in the Middle Ages”).
In the 13th and 14th century women had a very controlled lifestyle and were always being tested and watched on their behavior and manners. At 15 girls got married and had babies and it was not questioned or frowned upon, in fact it was encouraged and normal for marriage to take place at that age. With marriage came a dowry which is when the girls family gives money or land to the man who marries her, as an incentive to marry their daughter. In their rooms women had a corner or a closet where they keep all their personal and spiritual belongings. Women had to dress very modest and keep everything covered and always keep your eyes lowered. If they are in a building try to stay away from windows, and avoid going into a public place, large feast, and any confrontations (Barber and Montino).
Surprisingly, the rich and the poor women had something’s in common. All women were told regularly by the church and their husbands that being a woman meant they were naturally weak, and had a sinful nature and they could not do anything about it. Women no matter what class or what their social standing was would have been expected to bear children and be submissive to their husband, women would also have been judged on how fertile they were. How the church acted toward the women and how loyal the women were to the church determined how the women were treated (Pam Griffin)."

Heck women just got a right to vote in this country almost 100yrs ago (1920). "Passed by Congress June 4, 1919, and ratified on August 18, 1920, the 19th amendment guarantees all American women the right to vote. "

Okay so I was wrong.. they still burn women at the stake for being witches..

"At the end of last week, a 20-year-old woman, Kepara Leniata, was doused in gasoline and burned at the stake for witchcraft in Papua New Guinea. Her persecution and murder was apparently initiated by the relatives of a six-year-old boy who had died. Obviously the death of a child is a terrible event, but even accusing Leniata of witchcraft seems archaic."

"According to British scholar Robin Briggs, accusations of witchcraft can be either petty or extraordinary. Extraordinary: he blighted my crop, she gave my child scarlet fever, she made my pigs ill. Or the more petty examples: a British man once claimed witchcraft when a woman arose from her seat and offered it to him. A woman who had lost all of her children through miscarriage and stillbirth was accused of witchcraft because she no longer cried at the death of others' babies."

The Elder Scrolls is not medievel earth. Its another planet with some similarities but things like a gorgeous woman being burned at the stake isnt one of them. In fact being beautiful seems to be a major advantage in Tamriel dating all the way back to the days of TES 2 DAGGERFALL with the likes of Morgana. Of course she was witch though :D

Woman in Tamriel are looked up to as powerful and wise most of the time. The only oppression and demeaning attitudes I see going on are between the different races. The orcs are one of the most put down and laughed at races on Nirn when they are not being feared.

I dont mind nude mods but after using them for awhile the logic starts to nag at me why anyone would not wear as much clothing as possible to stay warm indoors considering the arctic climate of SKYRIM.

About skimpy armor mods they never appealed to me because they seem so out of place in SKYRIM. Forget exposed body areas for enemy weapons just the cold by itself will kill anybody dressed like that.

Now if this was a setting like OBLIVION, MORROWIND or DAGGERFALL then I would gladly use some skimpy armor mods or at least something that makes the female form more appealing in armor.

As someone else put it: don't like, don't download.

This pisses me off. Skyrim doesnt really have detailed graphics, and it is anything but lifelike in an unmodded state. 'huge target for pedophiles' what kind of ♥♥♥♥♥ moron are you? unless you don't understand the difference between pervert and pedophile? either way you are a ♥♥♥♥♥. There are maybe 20 children that I have seen in the base game, and I have never once seen a mod that actively sexualizes children for skyrim (fallout 3, yes, oblivion, there were a few custom races with 'childlike' bodies, but no direct claim they were children, matter of fact, in oblivion the only 'childlike races I remember were elves or half animal, thus, it wouldnt be out of line to claim much older than they look. Or you could always look at it as like gnomes from WoW). There is absolutely no problem with nudity mods or their ilk from a logical standpoint. To claim otherwise is pure ignorance. As far as 'skimpy' armours, many of the ones I've seen cover more than the fur bikini present in the default game.
*EDIT* the language filter apparently considers the word M.o.r.o.n as a cussword. That's news to me lol.
Personally, I don't currently use skimpy armours. This is partially because the only one with vanilla 'skimpy' replacers is cbbe, and the ones it has seem to think having just a pair of panties on the lower body is 'sexy'. That is whorish and ♥♥♥♥ty more than anything else.
As far as artic climate of skyrim, it isnt like the entire continent is frozen. you have many sections of the country where the only snow is on mountaintops, and you add in things like magic (there is no way that you are ever going to be able to say that they can't use a weakened form of fire elemental magic and enchantments as a way to keep warm)and there is no logical reason that people couldnt wear extremely skimpy clothes in most parts of skyrim, aside from modesty issues.
As for Alkpaz, the land of Tamriel is quite different from our medievil period. FFS you have a woman in charge of the blades (at least in the region of skyrim)! You also have quite a few female 'gods' Dibella and Mara for sure, and a number of the Daedric lords are commonly seen as female, or usually manifest as female. Hell, you have a very large number of influential female figures in the various guild questlines, such as Astrid, or Aela, the east empire trading company's leader was/is ia woman, and the Thalmor leader in skyrim is female as well!

Those who are the most outraged, are those who secretly use such mods.

Oh come on, to say that Europe was sexist in the Dark Ages is no argument. Skyrim isn't meant to be accurate...Dragons, remember?? I'm always saying to the female Foresworn "You must be freezing" as I kill them.

lol heya Darth (from Oblivion Discussion board no? ).. yes, I realize that.. but Two Bears brought up the 13th century thing.. I just went off on it. :D
