https://boundingintocomics.com/2019...t-11s-changes-to-female-characters-is-sexist/YouTuber Liana Kerzner took NetherRealm Studios, Warner Bros. and Mortal Kombat 11 to task following their radical character design changes to many of their female characters. Kerner derided the changes calling it “benevolent sexism.”
Kerzner begins her video by defining “benevolent sexism” saying, “the type of sexism that reinforces an apparently positive sex role binary that are men are strong and women are kind. It seems temporary beneficial for women in the short term, but can become a real problem as things go on and women have higher aspirations and women step outside traditional binaries.”
peope who are ok with these changes need to watch this. I think she can explain why this is sexist very well.
