From Hasbro to Hasbra? Monopoly looks to take down the patriarchy with a new version of the game that gives women more money

Hasbro announced a new version of Monopoly where female players get an extra $40 every time they pas “go,” which will help fight the patriarchy or something:
Unlike the classic game, women will collect 240 Monopoly bucks when they pass "go," while male players will collect the usual 200. It's "a fun new take on the game that creates a world where women have an advantage often enjoyed by men," the creators said. https://cnn.it/34A0qnj

From Hasbro which will now be known as Hasbra:
It’s “a fun new take on the game that creates a world where women have an advantage often enjoyed by men,” the company said in a statement. “But don’t worry, if men play their cards right, they can make more money too.”
Needless to say, folks aren’t on board with the change:
WTF is this nonsense. It’s play money and you roll a dice to move around the board.

And what a dumb lesson for young girls:
"You can't win at something unless you get an unfair advantage and, by the way, everyone is going to resent you for it" seems like an amazing lesson for young girls.

Gotta sell those games somehow:
And just how do they decide a player’s gender?
Monopoly, take note. This move is not going over well:
If I beat a man at Monopoly, I'll do it because I'm a property mogul, not because the rules were bent for me.
