Macho Female Animations Re-enabler


You installed the mod "Fixed Followers Lite" and you are not happy about this one change it made. "Fixed female followers walking like men (Mjoll, Jenassa and the female housecarls) ."

This mod reverts back the default male animation for female followers for people that installed the mod "Fixed Followers Lite". This means these 5 followers, Mjoll, Jenassa, Lydia, Iona, Jordis will start walking like men again and the rest of the fixes made by the Fixed Followers Lite mod will still be in place.

Do NOT install this addon without Fixed Followers Life. This should not work with other mods.

Also, pay attention to the load order. This mod should load just after "Fixed Followers Lite". See image for details.

--- FAQ ---

Wait, what? Does this mean in vanilla Skyrim those 5 female followers have male animation by default?
Yes and the Fixed Followers Lite mod fixed it. Some people didn't like or consider it a fixable thing, hence the existence of this mod.

Can I install only Fixed Followers Mod?
Of course, and I encourage you to do so.

Can you do a mod that makes guys walk like women just so i can get a laugh out of it.

I'm not sure I agree with this. Holding your arms out like that is a sign of confidence and power. It's not exclusivley a masculine posture. When the arms are moved closer together that's percived as a more acquiescent posture.

I want lydia to beat the hell out of people and not swing like a little girl. Thank you.

"Fixed" would imply "broken". "Changed", which is the more accurate term, implies "disagreed with".

Most women walk like women, sure -- but some women walk like men and rightly should. Actually, you bring up an interesting issue: why there aren't any men that walk like women.

I would actually love a mod that made female dragonborn walk like guys. She looks so silly in armour with the girly walk.

Thanks for making this, even when you yourself don't see the reason. :)

I like warrior to walk like one. Feminine way just doesn't fit for some of my fem. characters. Being a woman doesn't mean that you can't be/move other way than super feminine. Inside the genders there are lots of variations in characteristics, physiology, gestures, ways to think and act etc. No gender has sole right to masculinity/feminity, after all it is about hormones that we all have naturally more or less. That being said, not every woman walk the feminine way in real life either, so I don't see why they should in Skyrim, especially if they are meant to be hard-ass warriors.

What becomes to sexiness, I know many naturally masculine women, some of them are more masculine than many men, and I think they are hot as hell. There is lots of men who agree with me. That's a matter of taste, as well as the subject of whether or not it makes sense to warrior walk like a princess. ;) I can understand that POV though.

Considering one has to actually click the box to make a character use the opposite gender animations, I do not see it as an issue that not only these characters have opposite anis, but many nord women and most (if not all) female stormcloaks as well. But I suppose that's just my POV.
Which is why I'm glad you made this addon. I like most of the other fixes a lot and this would have bothered me to no end otherwise.
