The fact that an image is created by a woman is irrelevant.

It's not one person's vision, it's an amalgam of social expectations and systemic values.
That's like saying that a magazine can't objectify women if it has a female editor. It's stupid.
All riot needs to do is release some sexy shirtless men and a few more characters with realistic body types then can everyone stop whinging?
It's a fantasy game, nothing like real life, in their world big boobs might just be a thing that everyone has. Oh and hold the phone, 'it's a synthesis of what the woman was TAUGHT to think a mermaid should look like' mermaids and mer men are typically viewed as either fish tail and human top or fish top and human bottom (less commonly lol) not really social expectations, just old wives tales. OH and guess what happens when there is something that has a FEMALE human top half? I dont know, something called BREASTS might be there, or are humans only drawn with breasts because of social expectations and systematic values?
So have you seen any mermaids around? hm? Care to re jiggger a really old mythical creature because you dont think that mermaids would have breasts?
YES they are big breasts but i would imagine that the more prominent thing complaining about women in lol would be a. the skimpy outfits (which could be put down to style in the fantasy land of league) and b. the fact that most of them are thin as all hell.
No one is going to make a game that everyone is happy with, may as well conform to what will sell more as dissapointing as that is.
