FFS Thats the saddest example for sensationalism ever.
Let me ask you this, If you were an 8-bit designer, then what would you have done? Made all her armor fall off, and have no physical attribute to make her look feminine?
you have to look at my past post

you can have 100 body types for a male and still looks like a male, but with females is a lot more complicated, you have less room to work with (boob size, hips, waist, and on less degree, legs and arms)... but you can't change neck size, shoulder chest like with males, because you risk your character not look female at all due to 3D modelling, drawing style, media and definition of the image and even perception from the viewer.
just think of it as if all drawings by definitions were male (like stick drawings being the most simple example), and the psyche has a limited ammount of features to distinguish something as "female".. (just try to temember how many grily emos and traps are out there), so you have to make a very clear definition of those features for your character to look female (for example: if she has no boobs, she has to have thin waist)
there are many ways to draw a dragon, but very few ones to draw a swan or a horse, same with males and females you can't change features on swans too much before it looking like some other bird.
Also and if you see a dragon, you'd think of it as a male, unless some very specific features.
basic point being, as all drawings are by definition male, you can play around more easily with the features (think of mundo and fiddlesticks), but the room to modify female features is a lot more limited, because you could even end up with somethin aking to, yes, Ezreal
liek I said and 8-bit example is STILL relevant, all drawings (and even animals -horses, turtles) are male on our psyches, unless we look for specific features (p**** on a male horse)
being all drawings male by definition, you can play around more easily with males, not so much with females like the swan example, you risk it not look female at all.
