When was the last time you saw the main character of an anime to be a female? probably 90% of all animes have males for the leading role and women to support them (not to mention probably half of them show that women cook and clean and stuff)


your a dumbass....if you actually watch them all, then you would know....since you havent seen all the animes...then your statement is truly false!
Statistically, there are thousands of animes right now...
i agree that males are the most main characters, but you are over exaggerating...90%?
Seriously?
I would have to say 49% female and the rest is male...
but its natural.... Its been like this for thousands of generations...MALE is The HEAD of the family.......The person who runs the house...dont take this personally from me.....because its been throughout history....
You agree?? Or disagree??qoute it and tell me why


well sorry for not being an anime fucktard like you

i have a life you know


Fucktard?? seriously?? is that even a word?? no im not being a "fucktard"
what ever that means...its called using your head and common sense...your being a dumbass and sit your ass on the computer all damn day long...
use your head! shithead!!
If you had a life...why the fuck do you have 700 crunchypoints???
i think ive proven my point....
not to be an ass...but your a dumbazz! Yes dumbazz, with "Z's"

Theres no need to call anyone a dumbass its common to find people who are uneducated or misinformed on a topic as controversial as sexism, but you should "Probably" stay away from fabricating facts.

You know sexism isn't about "how many characters are female", you can have an entirely female cast and it can still be sexist. Sexism is about the way those characters are portrayed. Shoujo usually gives girls more of a fair shake, but that rarely gets adapted into anime because while most girls are willing to watch shonen, guys are not willing to watch shoujo. Zero no Tsukaima is a bad example of a show with a female lead if we're talking non-sexist, here, because you'll notice the main purpose of almost every female in the show is to be ogled or in love with the male lead. (Then again, it's a harem anime so what can you expect?) Sexism in Asian countries, Japan specifically, is very complex. Non-sexist anime exists but you have to look at whether the girls are shown as more than love interests or sexual objects, and whether or not every single one in the show conforms to some sort of subservient ideal, not just how many of them are in a show.

First post gooo.


What she said. Yes, there is sexism in anime.
There's sexism in video game.
There's sexism in life.

Now, that wasn't so hard, was it? much flaming can be avoided.

second of all, when did i try to make myself seem intelligent


first of all i am not offended cause I happen to like anime I am offended that you seem to think that people that like anime are "fucktards" great use of proper English by the way and second you say you have a life yet when i look you have over 600 CR points so that means you spend some time here to accumulate those points last the intelligent thing was my observation was due to the lack of my attention at the first post and you stating a question

AGREE
The man is head of the family...not because he's superior simply because it's his position, men are naturally stronger and are protectors, woman are naturally more sensitive and are carers.
They protect the family and we care for them.

Here's a list of anime with female leads, although I think some are alongside guys...nevermind.
The whole 90% thing is ridiculous, it's only the majority of what you've watched that have male leads not the majority of what exists!

>Angelic Layer
>Bakuretsu Tenshi
>Black Lagoon
>Blood+
>Blood: The Last Vampire
>Busou Renkin
>Claymore
>Elfen Lied
>Ergo Proxy
>Full Metal Panic!
>Ghost in the Shell
>Gunslinger Girl
>Hatenkou Yuugi
>Himawari!
>Jigoku Shoujo
>Kamichama Karin
>Kaze no Stigma
>Kiddy Grade
>Pretear
>Prism Ark
>Pumpkin Scissors
>Read or Die

edit 2: well fine, i'm talking about the popular ones cuz most of the titles you guys are saying i've never even heard of before



that's why!
you haven't watched enough animes to say that 90% of animes have male leads.
there are many other animes that have female lead such as Special A, Fruits Basket, Kamichama Karin.
you watch more shounen than shoujo, that's why [when it comes to anime i mean].
