The graphic on the New Releases page of the Genesis Police Officer is really pretty insulting. Besides the grotesque beer-belly, the skin-tight pants and clod-hopper boots on the character suggest the artist has never even seen a police officer in real life.
Oh yes, lets not forget sexual harassment of a subordinate.

I agree. That promo image should be pulled. It is disgusting.

Edit: This continued to bother me. I submitted a help ticket requesting that they change the promo to something that depicts the product in a more positive light.

It looks just like one of my x boyfriends turned out. Right down to the sexual harassment. Course he is a cop in GA so maybe things are different where you are.

I am a cop and am indifferent to it actually. I guess I am use to the jokes about doughnut shops and such though they got old after the 100’th time I heard them.
Could be also I don’t use Genesis.

It is DAZ’s “family friendly store” I suppose.

EDIT> Although if you haven’t see this….it is really good.

By the way, the product is not called DAZ police officer nor is it owned by DAZ.

True, but DAZ did accept it into their store and promoted it, so I believe they are responsible for the content of their store. I just think someone thought it was a funny portrayal of a typical stereotype. I doubt it was anyone’s intent to offend. But to some people, it was offensive. Hence the suggestion that a more positive promo image would be better.

It is in their store, thus they accepted the promo pics. We always get told how picky DAZ is.

You can’t please everyone. However, this is far more tamer than your usual half naked female in a suggestive outfit, which dominates the majority of the products in the various stores. At least this promo it shows that the outfit can be worn by men and women in different sizes. And it attempts to inject somewhat a parody of a sterotype rather than being the stereotype itself.

If you want to vent your anger, I’d probably direct to those promos that are actually sexist.

THAT was hilarious!!!
Thanks for cheering me up :D

About the promo picture, first thought I had that the product was probably aimed at those who use the outfit for naughty renders.
You know: “hands up and pants down” kind of things…
Sex sells, I mean, just look at all the naughty female outfits and then look at the men’s stuff offered in the shop.
It’s not a pretty picture, but I’ve seen worse in the store then this one

I was a cop and see it as a joke and am not bothered by it.

Picky does not preclude having a sense of humor.

Depends on your humor. Obviously everyone has different tastes.

I could also see it used in a graphic novel myself.

Sorry. I work at a police academy and that picture just rubbed me the wrong way.

And isn’t it nice that here in US we get to have different tastes and not get put down or censored for them?
