Found this on ask.fm and it makes me mad but more sad that dudes keep freaking out over stuff that - gasp - isn’t made for their exclusive entertainment. I don’t know whether this company sells manga or anime or what but I guarantee they’ve got plenty of goods right now that are aimed at men. But as soon as they start reaching out to non-straight-men, there’s a backlash. There’s cries of “betrayal” and threats. And it’s all based on a lie.
DIVERSITY IS NOT A ZERO-SUM GAME. It’s been said before but here it is again: there will always be media made by, for, and starring straight white* dudes. Always. It’s called privilege. If your first reaction to seeing a product that is not made for you is to attack its creator/distributor/translator as “neglecting their main demographic,” you are delusional. And an asshole.
Because I did the math and, wow, if every company you “keep afloat” stopped producing media for guys and switched to girly stuff or gay stuff (OMG ewwww right?), there’s still so much existent media for you that you’ll never read/watch/play it all. Hell, I own more things in this room aimed specifically at my demographic than I will ever have time to experience. Meanwhile the rest of the customers out there don’t have that luxury, so excuse them for getting catered to once in a fucking while.
And one last tip: maybe take a look at something made by a woman for women? You might learn something. You might even like it. Because I guarantee it’s different than what you’ve been reading/viewing/playing up until now.
*obviously most anime and manga is made by Japanese people in Japan, but they’re the “white people” of their country and their heroes are drawn to resemble white people, so congratulations.
