these girls are precious

A sudden realization

Throughout the duration of the entire show, Victor hasn’t flirted with a single woman.

Very great post! Everyone especially the girls, like Tsukki, Taechan or Sacchan, is so precious in their own way and doesn’t do anything bad to get bullied like that.

Thank you! Yes, everyone is free to dislike characters, it’s just absurd to me to see the girls hated for the same things the guys do that everyone loves and justifies to any extreme. But the girls are always held to different standards and they’re judged by a single gag trait or two without viewing their character (the layers and the growth) as a whole. They always have to prove somehow that they belong in the story whereas the guys can do whatever they want and still be called important, relevant characters. 

I can think of a few reasons for why people do that and it amazes me how some people can be so blind to their own double standards, but, regardless, it’s so tiring, especially as a woman, to see this. Sometimes I regret making this blog, because the last ten years have been nice and peaceful when I didn’t catch wind of silliness and personal, bitter vendettas against various characters (sometimes people seem more obsessed with the characters they hate than the ones they love). But I’ll stick around for a bit, especially since I’ve met some nice people here and I enjoy chatting with them. Also, this is my only outlet for obsessing guilt-free over Gintama

I love the female and non-binary characters, and it’s one of the few shounen series where we get such diverse and strong female/nb characters.

Anyway, thank you for your comment.
