Busty women dominate video games: Turkish police instructor

Christie Monteiro, a character in the video game 'Tekken,' has nearly all the qualities Dolu described in his presentation.

An instructor from the Police Academy briefed Turkish deputies about video game characters today, informing MPs that female characters had “big breasts” and that male characters were “non-sexual.” 
 
Police Academy Vice President Professor Hasan Hüseyin Çevik and instructor Dr. Osman Dolu gave a presentation to the Parliament's Information Technology and Internet Research Commission, daily Radikal reported today. The presentation was titled "Informatics, Technology and Children: Social Problems and Solution Suggestions."
 
Dolu explained in detail the properties of characters portrayed in video games. He said women were portrayed with big breasts and full make-up while men were "hyper-muscular" and "non-sexual." 

Dolu said the unrealistic body types presented false role model images for children playing the games and added that developed countries had implemented rating systems to protect children from false imagery. "Turkey has no such rating system," he said. 
 
"Female and male body types are taken to such extremes [in video games] that the portrayed 'people' can only exist in a fantasy world. The media especially uses the female body like an object, an accessory. The same goes for video games as well," Dolu said. 
 
Dolu gave the characters in the games "Tomb Raider," "Blood Rayne," "Cat Woman," "Leisure Suit Larry," "Grand Theft Auto" and "Duke Nukem" as examples of such extreme portrayals. 
 
Dolu also gave lists of body properties that he attributed to most video game characters.
