Sometimes I think people try to troll instead of actually trying to understand.. Or you really just space through all dialog..
Sorry, this is your reading comprehension fail. Earlier in the thread I called Mako the girl next door but did not complain it was sexist. I would say the girl next door implies someone nice, normal, and pretty who is familiar, comforting but perhaps boring. Which is Mako. I took umbrage when someone called her this:

"The Chick — (vocal effects, tambourine) A peacekeeping role to balance out the other members' aggression, bringing them to a nice or at least manageable medium. The Chick is often considered the heart of the group. Not always female, but the role is usually taken by the Token Girl (hence the name). Sometimes referred to as "the useless girl"."

Which IS a very sexist archetype. And you're right, Mako isn't useless (as I said in her defense). She is not smiling in the background playing tambourine just hoping everybody's getting along. But the reason someone thought this applied to her is her bland, boring personality is the ship glue is the same as 'The Chick's'.

A better ToR example of 'The Chick' is Ensign Temple if anyone's played an agent that far. She doesn't seem to have a purpose, you're not sure why she's there, but she sure is nice, perky, and by far the most normal member of the crew.

Yeah, I had the same problem. So I made my PT's evil brother and he tells Mako how it is. I also die a little inside each time, sniff.

Your interpretation is not what I intended anyway. Its only a wiki page. Go change it if it bothers you.

EDIT: Im looking back at the description and I still fail to see how "peacekeeper" and "heart of the group" can be considered as "incredibly sexist"..

Umm, no. Blizz is the comic little guy that's also a mean little thug. He busts up the bad guys with a big*** rocket launcher and an attitude from hell.

I just want to avenge the poor woman and protect her, I'm level 30 now and I still haven't used another companion yet, god I feel like a no life for feeling this way for a made up character lol and makes me want to pull her through the screen. rofl.

Anyone else feel like this?
After unlocking Elara Dorne's (Trooper) romance arc, she actually has a heart it seems...it disturbs me that I actually want to find a woman like her one day...she really is the perfect woman.

I love it how she and my commando did it on the med bay with Aric in pain on a medbed next to us.

Mako, just like all the other female companions (Empire, anyway) are all scrawny and unattractive. Especially Mako. At least on Mass Effect some of the females there looked a whole lot better, but here?

Forget it!
