Overall I see a far better mix of hetero (male and female) as well as gey, lesbian and trans content on cr than I see on American broadcast TV
One could make a far better argument that American broadcast TV is way more sexist than cr:-)

How would you change the conditions in the categories to account for these anime ? (as many of your propositions are with female protagonists, so I wouldn't think they have male dependants and aren't sexually harassed by the way you brand them).

Unfortunately the number of male protagonist versus female doesn't tell us anything. It simply could mean 'men like to draw male protagonists because it's based off themselves or a friend' for all we know. It's a demonstration of market and artist demographic rather than sexism.


I'm happy to hear any suggestion to improve the relevance of the conditions for each categories. That's why I didn't just ask for male protagonist versus female protagonist, but more so male protagonist who has female dependants versus female protagonist who has male dependants. That's also why I didn't enter into character sexualisation, but just on sexual harassement.



You'll end up having more on the male side purely on the fact there are more male protagonist anime out there. There's no good way to define sexism as a whole in anime generally.

Let's say we have 20 apples on the left and 10 apples on the right. If 1/5 apples are bad, I'll have 4 bad apples on the left but only 2 on the right. You'll be more likely to find bad apples from the male side simply because they have a larger pile. Is it bad they have a larger pile? No, because that's what being dictated by demographics. Demographics do not necessarily paint a 'sexist' trend, just different markets and suppliers.

So how do you define bad apples? How do you define an anime as sexist? What classifies a bad apple? There's just no way to say without defining what constitutes a show as sexist and unfortunately, that's controversial.

Imo, there's no way to good way to do this without defining how anime classifies as sexist (for either gender) and if we get into that we might as get back to the age old debate.

Both shows have a male protagonist, they can't be in category B, you meant category A ?

Takatoshi Tsuda is the protagonist of Seitokai Yakuindomo

Rintarō Okabe is the protagonist of Steins;Gate

They're both male.

I'm not considering shows with female main characters, just lead protagonist.

This is an unwinnable discussion when people have a narrow definition of sexisum as only males can be sexist. It doesn't matter how many examples of objectification or subjictification of males we provide. They see sexisum strictly as males over females☺

You can have more than one protagonist in a show.

Steins;Gate - Kurisu

Seitokai Yakuindomo - Suzu,Shino, and Aria; this show is 3/4 female protagonists

Even in so called sexist anime we routinely see women commit acts of domestic violence against males. Is that OK?
This is fair as we are imposing western standards on a Japanese medium:-D

why is this a thread, just watch anime


SJW's have infested anime I guess? I'm off to watch the 50 shows that come out every year where women wearing nothing more than a g-string to complement their Size 46 double FF size breasts jump around in slow motion and giggle for 5 minutes.
Y'know like what anime is known for? Then I'm going to watch an anime where a bunch of dudes with 6 packs strut around in very tight swimwear to balance it all out.

Daily reminder: this is going to be the most popular anime of 2015 because no one cares about 'muh sexism'

Logic and the law dictates the converse is also true. By your logic if females commuting domestic violenence is OK then males commiting domestic violence is also OK ;-)
Otherwise you are being sexist by imposing a double standard. And not treating women equally with men. SPIKED it
