You listed it as a "series aimed towards women" as proof of a decline in sexism. I pointed out that you were as far from being correct as it is possible to be

No it didn't. The story was generic, the characters were two dimensional and the fan service is far too over proportioned. I admit I only saw a few episodes but it clearly isn't aimed towards women, rather it's aimed towards men with no social skills.

bottom line some Anime is sexist some is not, but what ever your taste or preference you will always find something you like :wink:

e.g.

loveless for women (and some men). Eiken club defiantly not for women
In fact it has so much Fanservice that you will be desensitized to it if you watch it more than once :shock:

Rozen Maiden for women and men. Usagichan de cue OVA again defiantly not for women

as for Divergence Eve. arrr come on I'm not even got to bother Divergence = sexist

I'd say that's a Japanese culture thing though, anyone who's spent an extended period of time in the company of Japanese people knows it's very hard to get them to comment negatively on something.

Additionally, catch them at a very bad time, and they'll try to force a smile and claim they're ok...

Many teenage girls pick to wear jeans and shirts mostly. They unlikely want to change their gender, they wear what they feel comfortable in but something from a male is still there, speak for them.<Link removed> Do you know that some women (or men) even look more like men (women)? There is a tradition in Japan for a man to hug another man as a greeting while there is nothing of the kind when it comes to women.

Holy thread necromancy Batman!
An advert for an essay writing service using an incorrect example of Japanese culture and linking to a page full of gender identity stereotypes does not make for a compelling sales pitch.
