So the idea is to label everything with disclaimers like "this cup of coffee 
may be hot", right? Or mention in the description whether game features a 
female character like if something were wrong with it?

How about reality check? Last time I've been to the beach there were many kids 
and bikinis and women being there for no apparent reason.
Somehow I did not get impression that there were many women "showing off" but 
probably that's because I wouldn't be able to recognise sexism when I see it. 
Actually maybe there were few mild cases of "showing off" but nobody 
complained about it.

On the beach or nearby I haven't notice any warnings about women. If such 
warnings were real wouldn't they be sexist?
Presumably reality is more important than game so if there is no need for such 
warnings in real life why bother adding disclaimer to game description?

Sorry but I think such addition to package description would not be useful.
