After the sexism lawsuit, Blizzard seems to want to purge all games of content that might be too sexy or offensive. Successes, for example, like "My Sack is Gigantique" or "Bros. Before Ho Ho Hos", which seem derogatory towards women. Granted, due to the German translation, players with German voice acting usually don't get much of this.

In addition to achievement names, however, icons such as that of the Love Rocket mount from the Love Lies in the Air event are now adjusted. The icon is no longer round at the top, but now looks like a firework rocket - which fits better with the look of the mount.

Now, however, the developers are also lending a hand to the art from Vanilla. Paintings that hang on the walls throughout Azeroth will be replaced if they show too much female breast, for example. The implementation is quite drastic. The lady in Rabenholdt, for example, simply becomes a painting that shows fruit. BeforeFullscreen SliderAfterLike

, this one was based on a real-life work of art, the original being by the "Renaissance Master" Titian and named "reclining nude" or Venus of Orbino. Now it's just a fruit bowl in Azeroth.

In the SI:7 building in Stormwind, there was also a painting of a female that showed quite a bit of cleavage. Instead of replacing that painting with something else, they modernized it to better cover the woman's breasts.
