It was a stupid idea, no matter the gender. I think that is the point that a lot of people are trying to make but are coming across as sexist.
The first time I had seen anything about that statue was when the outrage started. If I had seen that thing on a store shelf or something I would have just thought, "wow, that is really dumb" and moved on with my life.
Some people are far too quick to pull the "sexism" card whenever something happens involving a female. Is there sexism in the video game industry? Absolutely. Is this statue sexist? Absolutely not.
