Taken as the culmination of its Greek roots, or from an English language dictionary. In the same vein, could you tell me the definition of "subjugate" you're working from here? Without a background in feminist gender theory, I have no such certainty that a hyper-sexualised videogame character, created to exploit the male interest in sex, will conquer or subdue the women who see her.
