Yup, I knew they were going to pull some bullshit with the Rugrats remake.
Betty and Howard were a reverse role couple(not sure if thats the correct term but I'll go with that). Betty was wearing the pants in the relationship, she was strong, she was tough, she was a tomboy and was, I guess feminist? Since she has the female symbol on her shirt. Howard was timid, he was the "house wife." This defeats the purpose of the original trope!
This is the type of role you think feminist would like to see, the men weak and doing the housework while the woman is strong and wearing the pants. But nope, they want their scissoring fetish instead.
EDIT: I just noticed the Betty does not have the female symbol on her shirt anymore. OH BOY! This tells me they don't want the male and female terms. I'm going to call it now!
