Kinda relevant, a kinda too honest guy and a bookworm girl in my class were talking about her favourite book.
Girl: You should read St. Johannah High School, it's such a good book.
Guy: I don't know, St. Johannah sounds a little... girly to me... you know.
Girl: It's not at all, you should try it.
Guy: I'm not sure, for some reason I don't really like the style of most books written by women.
Girl: Oh, so you hate women writers. That ,eams you're sexist.
Guy: I'M not sexist, they just have a little different style than men.
Girl: Did you know J.K. Rowling had to hide her first name or guys would refuse to read Harry Potter. You're all sexist.
Guy: What? You say all of us are the same because our gender and WE are sexist? You're sexist as well then.
Girl: I'M NOT SEXIST I'M RIGHT AND YOU HATE WOMEN AND YOU'RE SEXIST.

I actually agree with the girl's opinion in the beginning that you shouldn't judge a book by its cover or its name. It's the parts that followed that were ***********. However whenever something like that happens, I try to be the bigger MAN and just chuckle and stop talking

The only good books written by women, IMO, are HP and a few children's books.
Point is, they can write excellent for kids/teenagers, but when it comes to books aimed at adults, men are way better.

Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, Ayn Rand (if you're into that), Christie Golden and all her nerd books, the chick who wrote the outsiders, The diary of Anne frank (if that counts). Thats just off the top of my head.
As long as you're opinion doesn't try to form into a fact, you're not sexist.

Please, I'm sick of seeing this ******** endlessly reposted. He-Man is a male power fantasy. Note he is contrasted with the useless fop of a Prince Adam who has the same physique.

She-Ra, on the other hand, is walking around in the stilts that are high heels, a short dress that's gonna fall open on the top and expose everything on the bottom if the show didn't conveniently ignore physics, she's wearing a useless headdress, a collar, she's glammed out in lipstick, eyeliner, eye shadow, and foundation, and in order to get that figure she has to be missing a few ribs.

He-Man's image:
Tough
Powerful
Dominant

She-Ra's:
Pretty
Pretty
Pretty

That the show portrays her decently in action (from what I recall from 30 years ago) doesn't change that her image portrays something different. "I am a princess and I am here for you to look at me."

Tha'ts how the species survives. Men attract women by being tough, powerful, dominant. Women attract men by being pretty, feeling, empathetic. All the feminists who yearn for He-Woman are fighting biology. That's the way humans are wired. These standards aren't human imposed, nature made us this way.

As for unattainable standards... Some men can't ever be he man for the same reason some women can't be runway models. Not everyone can be optimal. Everyone isn't 10/10. You do the best you can with what you have.

Except you're looking at it wrong way. He-man isn't tough, powerful and dominant because he is male fantasy. It's vice versa. He is the fantasy because that is standard male fantasy, while standard woman fantasy is to be pretty. Thats a fact, not an opinion.

I would say it has roots from past. Men had to hunt, thus they had to powerful, therefore the ultimate male fantasy it to be an efficient hunter/fighter. Woman had to take care of children, but in order to get any, they had to be desirable by males. Thus, being desirable/pretty is woman's fantasy.
This is just my opinion, though.

I don't know much about She-Ra to be honest but fair enough on the part if she's just there to 'stand there and look pretty'. As for other female superheroes, they're still there to kick ass and do a substantial amount of crime-fighting such as Wonder Woman.

The whole power-fantasy paradigm is absolute ********! Not every men want to look muscular. Body-image issues exist amongst men where many feel 'too small' and feel pressured by the idea that only girls go for guys with huge pecs and chiselled abs. Even I've succumbed to that sort of pressure as well when I first got into lifting. Conversely, there are women who aspire to look good as well where they do it for themselves. There was a chick who made a good point that whenever girls perform tasks (such as cleaning or crime fighting or whatever), they like to feel beautiful in the process.

Women hardly feel the pressure to look good in the eyes of a man since their tastes are broad and hey, most men would **** just about anything. Women feel insecure not as a result of media portrayals but due to passive-aggressive competition between females in society. It's women who judge and shame each other, not men.

Finally found some fun.

She-Ra's design is reminiscent of Greek/Roman mythology. You could say that she's based on someone like Artemis (Goddess of the Chase etc etc titles) rather than the more sexually fantasized Aphrodite because Artemis didn't wear armor - believing in the purity of the hunt as per her namesake.

Her useless headband is part of the transformation from Adora into She-Ra; which grants her superhuman abilities. With the sword and lasso you would akin it with Green Lantern and his ring (etc etc suit).

He-man depicts a male power fantasy which is almost unattainable; like really - who could manhandle Skeletor? But back to the point, unattainable fantasy = envy; which isn't unlike She-Ra's physical features.

Also, I'd like to point out that falling short of greatness is better than always trying to fight with the village idiot. Competition drives the human spirit. Steel sharpens steel etc etc Japanese proverb.

And Heels? My man, Prince Adam is sporting a pageboy from great clips while he is literally trotting around in his underwear, while wielding a impotent sword.

He-Man's physique may be difficult to achieve in extent, but it's not unattainable in kind. He simply has a weightlifter's body. 90 minutes a day in rows, squats, curls, presses, shrugs, and crunches, and in 6-9 months you will have wings, traps, chest, and bulging arms and thighs. He-man's body says, "A man who lifts has arrived." This is attainable by any healthy male post puberty.

A woman who works out 90 minutes a day won't grow physics-defying double-E breasts. Heels that lift her butt and give her the look of long legs won't become practical athletic attire. She will not permanently look like she's just left the hairdresser and manicurist with perfect makeup applied. And working out won't give her a 15 inch waist up where she should have ribs.

He-Man's shape is a function of muscular anatomy. He isn't kitted out with a Benz, fame, charm, sense of humor, and portrayed as a bad boy who is amazingly also good with kids. That would be sexualized.
She-Ra, OTOH, is tits and ass.

Unless you are taking steroids like Barry bonds you will never get he man buff at 90 mins a day in 9 months maybe 9 years with supplements etc. I will be painful hard work and not everyone can get a perfect 6 pack and bulging abs,pecks and glutes ,just like trying to achieve feminine perfect beauty. It's the same goal only the methods vary. overdosing or abusing Roids is just as bad as being anorexic or obsessed with plastic surgery.

I specified not in extent. The bulk is not needed to have the right look.

You are making just a ton of excuses. How is it that you acknowledge that a scaled back version of the man is fine but a scaled back version of the female is not, better to be a /fit/ girl than a dough girl. You argue that the picture is a figurative interpretation for men but a literal interpretation for women, that right there is you being biased against yourself.

The muscles are a result of working out, which gives strength, which aligns with the power fantasy. You are strong. You are powerful. You are a version of He-Man.

Double-E tits do not have anything to do with punching people. They are a secondary sexual characteristic. She-Ra says, "EE tits are sexy."
Can a girl grow EE tits by working out? No. In fact, if she tries to be athletic her tits will shrink.

He-Man's physique aligns with what he does. She-Ra's mirrors what a man wants to look at.

with big breasts and plastic surgery you are striving for the female equivalent of a male power fantasy . Example"you are beautiful,sexy,irresistible, no man can resist your seductive charms.you have power over all men they will do anything to please you. " this is a Female power fantasy ,the power to control others with charm and sex appeal not brute strength. Looking like She-Ra is a means to this end plus she knows martial arts so she can be dangerous when she needs to be.

To be fair, it is frustrating when comic artist and anime creators decide to spend more time focusing on fan service and sexualizing characters.
Like the second half of sword art online. (Tentacles, incest, cat girl, implied threesome, more incest, rape. Come on, seriously should've ended it after 12 episodes.)
Most of high school of the dead. (Tittles jiggling everywhere)
Power girl. (Why are her boobs her symbol?)
Starfire.(For ***** sake, the cartoon version was awesome and DC still keeps her slutty in the comics. Why? Marvel made Nick Fury Black after Samuel ************* Jackson made him more interesting than the stale white guy they originally used, so why can't DC do the same?)

HOTD was one of the best animes I've ever seen. Over the top, and lots of fun.
>crying about good fanservice
>not crying about ***********
I hate people who hate fanservice blindly. HOTD was written by a damn porn artist. What the **** you expect? But I thought it was great.

Just like I think Kill la Kill is great.
Just like I think Chihayafuru is great. (absolutely zero fanservice, it's a damn womans anime to boot)

Good point.
That'd be like me complaining about how Needless wasn't serious enough when it didn't have to be.
Though I was hoping for something more serious from High School of the Dead while starting it. I wish someone else would make an anime about zombies that serious yet mildly over the top in non-sexual ways.

I was really excited when I heard about it, and couldn't wait to watch it. Then it was just that.
That ******* scene where the women all suddenly go delirious and start rubbing against eachother and grabbing eachother's tits in the bath was just ******* stupid and made no sense; the same as the rest of the show.
I was really glad that nothing happened with that little girl. I was half expecting something loli-fetish like was going to happen... But it didn't, and I was glad.

I managed to enjoy it, though I ignored and blanked out all the fanservice and got a few laughs from scenes such as the one in the tub and the one where the girls tits flop about as bullets swerve around them, and they're used to take the guns recoil.

Looking back at that, I'm glad they didn't either because that was one of the first anime's I've watched and holy **** would that have stopped me from bothering with anime again.
Though one can argue that that scene where she conveiniently has to pee while on the main guys back, so she does, was intended for lolicons with urine fetishes.

cant address all of those, since i haven't seen SAO, but i'll give it my best go

1; HSOTD. the entire show was a joke, and is a harem anime. lets not pretend its anything more then fanservice the show. it certainly did its job

2; power girl. alt supergirl, who didn't grow up near superman, but always looked up to him. story goes that she left the emblem space blank until she could figure out what she wanted her symbol to be, but eventually fell back on the fact that she had killer tits. ultimately, its fan service, but whats so bad about that? her story is otherwise very interesting.
3; starfire. yea, i got nothing, DC dropped the ******* ball on that one. they thought they were running with the sexual liberation feminists, but they took it like, 10 steps to far

Yeah, it only barely occurred to me that HSOTD was really meant to be ridiculous, but still would be cool if the story were more serious.

Power girl is a useless character anyway, not like she has any real important powers that only she has. She's just wondergirl with tits. Still kinda weird how they frequently choose to not give her a symbol and instead show her cleavage all the time.

Starfire is the greatest fail DC has accomplish. It's not too hard to make her socially awkward and a former sex slave at the same time. It would even make her more sympathetic than if she was a slutty alien who could have possibly enjoyed it.

Feel like giving thae answer here and not a joke, it is because the people who complain want to have some power and attention. They probably were neglected at a young age or were over pampered at a young age where they need full attention then they don't have any or enough to satisfy and they decide to bitch about the first thing they see in hope to get acceptance.
