Agree. I *think* I'm even detecting a shift in the pubescent marketing in gaming.

It's going too far RC.

Women in some cases are getting offended on behalf of other women who are not bothered and quite happy.

People "being offended" is going to cause issues in so many things. But then we can all call things out and virtue signal in the best possible way. Let's wear black clothes to signal how bothered we are about something we pretty much ignored.

I agree.  There's an element of snowflake-ism in all this now. And it's not being helped by media hype.

But it is plainly out there and marketing is marketing so they're going to HAVE to roll with it.

I meant to comment in the 1st post that this is going to put a lot of models and agencies out of bread-n-butter work.

I'd bet Oxford has. Several times.

Take a look at that pix. No one was doing anything wrong. What happened, though, is that it caught the eye & camera of someone who saw the irony and framed it well.
