20 Tweets: “Sex Slave” Playmat Controversy

Written by Administrator on . Posted in Magic Culture, Social Media

Sometimes real world issues come crashing into the world of Magic: The Gathering. An image can be controversial to one person and a masterpiece to another.  The images in Magic: the Gathering take you out of this world and into a world of fantasy. One image recently ignited a debate; an outcry regarding how women are depicted in the art of MTG. Does Wizards of the Coast have a responsibility in when it comes to their portrayal of women? Where is the line drawn? When does the image of a woman’s stance or stare turn from being an image of strength to being an image of temptation?
