No you are actually doing terrible cause all you have done is submit and never actually grow a pair and actually stand by you or your team's work. Nor do you actually demonstrate that all the people criticizing you why they are incorrect utilizing actual artistic styles and examples as to why your art it not sexist or degrading.
For example you could easily utilize that your recent trend of superhero style for splash art as it demonstrates a larger than life scenario where you are meant to idolize said champions much like in our history with gods such as the greeks and egyptians.
Honestly you need to dissent using your actual education demonstrating that the artistic styles have actual roots and demonstrate that your critics are only demonstrating their ineptitude for not understanding art.
You are also not actually making a clear point that as a video game not everything is meant to be realistic and it is the fantasy that actually makes these games unique and desirable as it is a form of escapism. Making everything based on realism from the human form to clothing choice only creates stagnation of imagination as you are binding yourself to the mundane. Movies don't do actual gun physics properly, so why should you be held to an non-realistic standard?
