EVERY1 knows god damn WELL POISON IS A WOMAN!...a very very fuckin seductive slut woman. but the whole dude thing was because she was too perverted for people in the US to play as soo they took her out and put sum douche named billy in Final Fight.
You know, in the year that Final Fight Came Out, in US they think that beating females in a videogame is anti-feminist, so they decided to use the excuse that Poison was a Trannsexual (Oh yeah, good message for kids huh)
its actually a female, a long time ago the company that owned her had to "say" she was actually a man because society didnt like the thought of hitting women in "final fight" so they called all the female characters in that game she-males to fit standards. Now we don't give a crap about that so shes back to being female lol
did you know thats incorrect. They claimed Poison was a tranny in the US version so that Capcom could get censorship feminists who hate the idea of girls getting hit off their back. Since then, Capcom admitted it was just bullshit and that Poison always was a girl
yeah it was because Capcom recieved complaints, in the time this game was released in the US people were on some violence and women political correctness rampage, and since Capcom didnt want to change the character model they BS'ed the US into think she was a he. As that calmed down they spilled the beans years later. I don't blame them though, and it's silly, its not like people complained about Chun Li or Samus Aran
People complained about Final Fight allowing the player to beat up women (which was controversial at the time) but Capcom claim Poison is not a woman but I guess they'll say she's fully female now because it's okay to have female enemies to fight against.
Because she was technically a man first, I guessed it was sort okay but I heard Poison was replaced with some generics punk but also Poison's body shaped into a man's body to make her look like a transvestite.
