that is a very stupid remark. it's also at least a hundred times more
sexist than the image that caused the original outrage.
i've actually followed the whole discussion of sexist aggression on
technical conferences quite closely. and i refuse to be summarily
condemned together with pimpled 20 year old jerks who suddenly realize
they somehow missed puberty, just because i happen to be of the same gender.
manga aesthetics can and should be discussed. however, the fact is that
manga boys look and behave just as stereotypically stupid as manga
girls, so i don't see why it should be sexist. still, people of any
gender love it. fair enough.
the original poster made it sound like he saw a piece of hentai porn. at
the risk of exposing myself to giggles and snide remarks: i blushed when
i heard of a "subservient pose", thinking omg, some pimpled nerd did
something really tasteless here.
and clicking that link with trembling hands, what do i find? a girlie
stereotype with fuzzy ears and large eyes standing around like she has
to pee. if that is what's left of sexist imagery, we've sure come a long
sadly, that's not the case, so conserve your precious outrage and direct
it at real problems.
