Gay people are nearly always portrayed as borderline rapists/pedophiles who have to fuck every man in a 2 mile radius.
Women, especially moe characters, are often portrayed as psychologically weak (clumsiness, emotional dependence to males, emotional immaturity (tsundere), crybabies) and are often so sexualised it's ridiculous. Pantyshots, boobgrabs etc. are fine in an ecchi, but they don't belong in a serious show.

Well Homophobic is not quite what you see in anime, there are many cases where the male characters feel aroused by watching the feminine boy.

Probably, since AgK's score in MAL is quite high.

Maybe they do it for the comedy? Homo sexual jokes are a hit ya know.
(oh god please don't smite me)

And about the ladies, I think it's fine as long as they actually have a reason to act weak but sadly most girls especially in harem harem-ish anime that is usually not the case.

To be fair, the anime girls can punch the male characters all they want. haha

The VN is hard to read. Shirou has to protect a servant who's probably a million times stronger than him. WTH?

I'm more worried about Schrodinger's cat references, it's so cliche and terribly executed, and it's on almost every shitty new anime around here.

"Characters are not depicted perfectly! it must be sexist!"

And this is why no one in the west cares for female characters, because creators cannot do whatever they want with that character without it being considered some "sexist attack on all women!"

Behind on what exactly? political correctness? you really want that shitting up anime and stifling creative freedom?

Actual sexism is denying someone based on their gender/sex, people have taken that and are now applying it any female who isn't some kind of wonder woman in a burqa + robotic personality.

Its not about that, its about variety. Having only strong women is boring too, but anime girls in general are so often the same. Okay males kinda too. Actually scratch that, charactes in anime in generally suck. Its not just males and females, the good shows have both good male and female characters and the bad shows have bad male and female characters. On avg the female characters are a bit more uninspired tough, I think.

Kaworu almost raped Shinji in the bath. He doesn't qualify.

Killua Zoldyck is the correct answer.

I see submissive wimpy men, I see submissive wimpy women, I see strong dominant men, I see strong dominant women. <- I see all that and more in Anime.

Anime doesn't lack variety, western entertainment lacks variety because every female character has to be feminism approved, instead of however the creators want.

Yaoi is written primarily by women who had weird relationships, none at all, or have some extreme fetishes, don't think about it too much.

Moe gives the viewer something cute and often weak to protect, it's equal and not sexist because there's moe content for both men and women.

I only remember that gay friend in the manga Fuuka and the main characters in the manga Yuureitou (one of them is an ftm trans).

I'll ignore the part about "gay Kirito" because he's almost like a girl to me.
