Thankfully the SJW's just proved that to be completely inaccurate and that women are the overly emotional ones while men are the logical ones.
But 90% of SJW stuff is posted on the internet and everyone on the internet is a guy so . . .

Wait, so he is basically stating females are actually the logical ones while men are the overly emotional ones living in their own little fantasy worlds.
yes and no (both can be quite logical but both has their ways to become quite "unlogical")
But many would have different goals and would achive them differently.
From drama where small details are quite often used with a lot of meaning/value (a watch with a picture in it or be given a rose/chocolate)
How we do sex or what we want out of the sex.
and much more?

He might control and she might be giving him such to build it up.



Like its not often you hear about a crazy doctor that is female or what you would be using for the main villan?
But that does not mean there is many females involved behind that maybe likes to insted pull the strings to her desire?

Is it "sexist" to simply acknowledge men and women have different expectations, understandings, and needs for fiction?

Is it "sexist" to say shounen appeals mostly to boys, and shoujo to girls?

Is it "sexist" to say that outsider of a few exceptions to the rule, that it is hard for men to write for women and women to write for men?

Of course not, but none of that is what he actually said, is it?

What he said in response to, "if a female director would ever helm a Studio Ghibli production", and I will quote it here, since you apparently can't be bothered, was:


It depends on what kind of a film it would be. Unlike live action, with animation we have to simplify the real world. Women tend to be more realistic and manage day-to-day lives very well. Men on the other hand tend to be more idealistic – and fantasy films need that idealistic approach. I don’t think it’s a coincidence men are picked.

I see nothing about any of your three points.

He said, "Men on the other hand tend to be more idealistic – and fantasy films need that idealistic approach." Not shounen. Not shounen fantasy. Fantasy, period.

Shoujo fantasy is a thing. General fantasy created by women is also a thing, considering at least one of Studio Ghibli's fantasy movies (Howl's Moving Castle) is based on a book written by a woman. But he didn't acknowledge that. Maybe he believes Diana Wynne Jones is secretly a man, who's to say?

Perhaps the Guardian misrepresented his response or took it out of context - it certainly wouldn't be the first time media did something like that. Perhaps he specifically meant shounen fantasy. But considering he's apologized, rather than protest or attempt to clarify, that doesn't seem to be the case.

Ultimately, I think this is entirely too much fuss over what was likely a rather off-the-cuff remark. He said something stupid that he may or may not have thought through fully. A bunch of easily offended people got upset. He apologized. Huzzah, life goes on.

This whole "male and female brain" thing is scientifically speaking pretty weak. All they found was a correlation but tests have already shown that you can turn a female brain into a male brain with something as simple like playing tetris. You can't even tell if a brain belongs to a man or a woman with it. Right now it looks more like it has something to do with social gender and not with biological sex. I know it's popular but even if you like that hypothesis, stay sceptical until they've found actual proof .

Is he a sexist?
I think it's the wrong question. It should be "was the question stupid?" and the answer is yes it was. I mean that's the question he should answer:
"That lead to the question of if a female director would ever helm a Studio Ghibli production"
How should he know? Can he travel through time? The only possible answer you could give to such a question without offending anyone is something like "It's possible, of course". Great, 4 words, people love to read that. And even if you think his answer is sexist you still have to admit that the sexism in his statement is completely random. And here's why:

"It depends on what kind of a film it would be. Unlike live action, with animation we have to simplify the real world. Men tend to be more realistic and manage day-to-day lives very well. Women on the other hand tend to be more idealistic – and fantasy films need that idealistic approach."

Do you see it? If he would have said that, people would have agreed too because men are thinking more practical, right?
That's why I can't call it sexism( and because his answer wasn't absolute. He's not claiming that women can't do it).
This is the answer of a guy who didn't really know what to say but still wanted to sound like he knows what to say.
Interviews can be horrible. There are often questions you can't really answer but you still have to because people think that as long as it has somethig to do with the business you're working in you have to know all about it.

Don't they allready?...
I think it was how each used their brain and such tests with that to see brain activity thing of what each uses more in what parts.

Even though that doesn't mean it has much value if we don't really know how it works (memories, ideas, thoughts to emotions and such)

Not everything is by how you was raised up even though it could mean much in some ways while some just being more special cases (tomboy or rather this to trans and such)



omg star wars XP
also how you can be a bit different with mass either being skinny, fat or have more muscles to control using.. power/resources.

Now that's just being abhorrently dishonest. Studies demonstrate that there are sex differences (quantifiable, not strictly). There's hundreds of them (maybe not on DailyMail or other pop-sci sources). It's not as simple as "male" or "female" brain, but the trends are certainly there. Studying brain differences between males and females is essential to exploring why those differences exist.

You can't shovel social gender hogwash to downplay sex differences. For instance, males are much more susceptible to autism and females to depression. I would hope you wouldn't write off autism as giving little boys too many car toys.

The environment has a lot to do with developing biological behavioral differences, but you can't just write off or downplay biological sex differences near entirely on that basis. Not all men are one way, and not all women are the other--but there are trends that dictate more males one way and females the other. Genetics is about susceptibility to the environment, in most cases--after all.

Yes, yes, and yes. By right of my creed.

"Everything is sexist; everything is racist; everything is homophobic, and you have to point it all out."


So your post is racist, sexist, and homophobic? Just pointing that out.

That's not what I'm talking about. I'm talking about THE male and THE female brain. I'm talking about "The female brain could have never invented the wheel". That's the "movement" I'm referring to.
