I mean, yes, Japan is a rather sexist society, and anime, admittedly, tends to be sexist because of that. Thus, getting bothered at the sexist nature of a story in anime is ridiculous. I mean, if I’m going to get up in arms about sexism in anime, why am I watching anyway?
Except, I have limits. And now that these things have been pointed out, I don’t think I could go back to not noticing them. I’d just spend the whole time watching looking for them and being pissed about them. So why spend my time watching something I know I won’t enjoy and I’m already biased against? It makes no sense.
