People from other countries were not raised on the same values and ethics as other people, and it might even be a subconcious choice. I didn't even realize it until i looked at some other threads about it and thought about it (and i'm a girl, i really didn't take much notice, i was just enoying the read 0.0; ) I'm not saying it's okay. I'm a girl, I do not support sexism, and i would gladly oppose any serious form of it. But i also am tyring to empathize with the author, seeing as they were raised on different values.
It comes from saying "It's more understandable because of slightly different factors" that my response comes from.
I actually recommend you look at the examples posted and think about it again. There is still rampant sexism in our OWN culture (well American writing) even though "we're" supposed to be trying to be fair to both sexes- that is why I stick by what I say about the writing.
gun21 posted examples of misogyny. To be honest I have no way of knowing if the writer is sexist themselves, but their writing, particularly in Bakuman is the most frequently sexist (then again it's probably one of their longest running series). Bakuman is doubtless enjoyable for the "insider" look of manga but it becomes a bit shakier when it comes to character drama and who happens to be successful/says the "inspiring" lines.
Ironically there are have been claims that the writer is female, however that remains a mystery. (Remember, it's a writer/artist team.)
