Anime is sexist! Die chauvinist pigs!
Posted 6/11/12
Please tell me why strong females don't exist in anime.

The few strong females are not role-models of feminine power but are actually nothing more than male-wish fantasy with outlandish archetypal behavior, belittling personalities and of course always with extreme beauty.

We need to end the sexism and male-domination in anime by demanding equal representation of genders!

Too long have women been subjugated by animators, seen as nothing more than sexual items and confined to the role s of high school student, magical girl, and other over-played and cliche character personalities.

Doesn't it make you sick when you see the feminine stupidity of harem shows such as Rosario+Vampire? Each of these girls merely represents one vision of what MEN want. A shy girl, an aggressive girl, a smart girl etc.

But why aren't there any realistic women in anime??

These shows, while perhaps seeming harmless on the outside, are actually fostering the grown of subconscious sexism within the minds of all the male viewers. Disgusting men watch these shows and convince themselves: 'yes this is how women are; they is how they should really be'.

Well I've got news pigs. Us women are tired of your chauvinism!

I propose a boycott on anime that is sexually biased.

LONG LIVE FEMINIZAS!!!

At first, I read feminizas as feminazis. I can no longer decide whether this is supposed to be a serious topic or not.

Oh well, it's funny either way.

In the same way that males are shown as being perfect in nearly every way leading to a slew of "who's the hottest male manga/anime character"
If your complaining about not finding strong female characters your not looking hard enough ill start you off:
Black Lagoon
Cannan
Blood+
Shakugan no Shana
Kaze no Stigma
Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu
Claymore
Ga-Rei: Zero

Males didn't become dominant by whining and bitching on the internet.

There's also Yuno from Mirai Nikki. Very strong female character. Paired with a fairly weak male character.

My dear templej, if you heard of Hayao Miyazaki, he gave women more voice in most of his anime works... he kinda broke down the barriers of a stereotypical female anime characters and created something new.
The "Great" Hayao Miyazaki, I have proclaimed him to be, made these female characters the role models that girls ought to have, he is not being chauvinistic at all....Besides the point.....I have changed my views on the opposite gender, despite being guilty of seeing anime that are dehumanizing or belittling the female gender... I see that women are more powerful then men, subjected to such pain and suffering yet through all that, they prevail and become leaders in our ever-changing world....

It's anime, you don't like it, you don't watch it. I rather doubt that anyone is holding a gun to your head, forcing you to watch all that "sexist" anime. Get a life.

The number of people that like/accept that kind of thing, and are willing to put their money into it, is going to overpower the number of people who are against it because it's somewhat displeasing. So, it probably isn't going to go away any time soon. Anime, as well as any other fictional stories are for entertainment. Both women and men tend to be depicted unrealistically, to entertain us.

Besides, there are plenty of strong female characters in anime, so I really don't know what anime you've been watching. Maybe you shouldn't be watching harem anime if that really bothers you so much...

Ma'am,you're new to anime aren't you?
How is anime, especially stuff like Highschool of the Dead or Queen's Blade inserting any form of sexism into anybody?And the one you mentioned is a harem.People start getting sexism from it once harems start becoming a regular thing in real life.
I think you're overreacting to anime.Most of it viewers are people old enough to know women don't act like that in real life.Now if we got kids (or people lacking maturity) watching these,I understand you're skepticism.But raging on a random forum on the internet isn't gonna do anything.
Don't get me wrong,I prefer strong women.In fact,I would love for there to be more strong women in anime following in the steps of characters like:



Or...



Even normal girls in slice of life anime like...

Definitely sounds like a feminist mind templej has. Kemono no Souja Erin, Moribito, Fairy Tail, the Miyazaki movies, White Album, Rideback, Evangelion, and Kanon (the 2006 version) are all examples of having strong female characters. Heck, while there are plenty of harem/fan service titles, the women often are stronger characters than the male protagonist that is frequently seen as a person who is only really strong when he's around women.

I don't see anything wrong with wanting to watch some hotties!
Maybe you haven't watched that many anime yet but there are many strong women in some shows. For example:
Black Lagoon
Claymore
Jormurgand
Princess Mononoke
Valerian and Laureline
and many others...
