In the last few hours a new controversy has loomed over video games, and is that one of the images of Cyberpunk 2077 published yesterday has been accused of transphobia. It is an image of a fictitious drink that is announced in Night City, and that under the motto of “16 flavors that you will love to mix “” shows the image of a transsexual with genitals of considerable dimensions.
Are people being hypersensitive to the subject? Is there a reason in the complaints? What is clear is that for CD Projekt Red people are confusing the ideology of the study with the ideology of the world they are trying to recreate.

I love women’s bodies, I love men’s bodies and I love those that are left in the middle, “said Kasia Redesiuk, the artist who created her design and who has talked about the controversy with the Polygon portal. & Quot; Anyway; is used, your beautiful body is used, for corporate reasons, and that’s what I hate, they show up in city advertising, and that’s the terrible part of it all. to show is that the hyper-sexualization of people is something harmful “.
” In the year 2077, especially with how much the modifications will be available to people of the bodies, I think that People are going to make all the changes they want. ” And I think that even society itself is more open to different kinds of relationships ”
” Cyberpunk 2077 reflects dystopian future where megacorporations dictate everything, ” said Redesiuk. ” They successfully try to influence the way of life, and they do so by creating very aggressive ads that use, and abuse, the needs of people and their instincts. Hypersexualisation is everywhere, and our advertisements are examples of the hypersexualization of men, women and those in between. We want to show that hypersexualization in advertising is terrible, and it is something that we also see today. It was a conscious decision on our part ”
