The Reason Why Minions Are All Male Is Incredibly Sexist

Last week, a list of facts about Minions was floating around and that perked up some people's ears.Â
People noticed that the 3 protagonists of the Minions movie were all male
The movie's director (and creator of the Minions) said â€œKevin comes from an ancient Greek word (â€˜Kevinosâ€™) which means leader,â€ he said. â€œStuart comes from the Latin word â€˜Stuartalumniâ€™ which means (loosely translated) â€˜the one who slacks.â€™ As for Bob, it means short. For Robert.â€
But people noticed that all the minions that had been named in Despicable Me 1, 2 or Minions were male
Even though they like to dress up in traditionally female costumes like in this one.Â
When asked why all Minions were male, the creator said "Seeing how dumb and stupid they often are, I just couldnâ€™t imagine Minions being girls."
Is he implying that females can't do slapstick comedy?
What do you think?
Do not show me this again
