Just want to get this out here: They are trying the same thing with Original Sin 2 now, all the old claims that its "not realistic enaugh" (same goes for female fighters in general, but hey mental gymnastics) , obviously they dont have the same issues with male armor beeing impractical in different ways.
Do not cave in to them. SJWs dont actually buy games. This trend has shown over the last few years, they only demand others to change their Art, they do not produce anything of value themselves and they wont buy things that adher to their groupthink either.
Ignore them, do not let them dictate what you can and cannot have in your game!
