...and enjoy your downvotes from the horde of white male teenagers who know everything about gender issues and can clearly see that there's nothing sexist about lol and it's community.

Who's asking them to remove the content that appeals to the majority of gamers? I certainly am not. I happen to love many of the skins I criticized. I'm only suggesting that Riot also include more content that appeals to other groups. And who's to say that the same people that like sexy young female champions won't also enjoy a granny champion? They aren't mutually exclusive.


There's a lot of constraints. You can't really go too crazy with female design because you risk falling into something that's actively repulsive to your core audience (males), like a she-Urgot would be.

I think less sexualized female champions will appear from time to time. You pointed out yourself that they do exist, but they're a minority. You can't expect every female champion from now on to be a granny or something else that isn't sexually appealing.

So girls dont play LoL cuz they feel insecure because of 'oversexualized' female champions. Thats new.
If things worked according to that girls would never use the internet or watch tv :/

Men are more known for being strong so thats how the champions are.
Women are more known for their looks.

Do you do this to guys to? And what makes you decide that's what the girls are trying to incite when they go off telling people they're a girl.

Girls in real life dress super revealing. Does that mean they are asking to get rape? NO
Girls tell other people they are girls for whatever reason. Does that mean they are trying to incite some harassment from players? NO

It means they're desperate for attention. I don't go around saying "BTW I'm a guy " in my games. So when females do it and expect some kind of special treatment it's very annoying.
