Are all-male/all-female anime casts a synonym of objectification?

I just wanted to get this point out of the way so that I could get to giving more meaningful answers.
Well, you're just a living proof that it's useless to talk to an old person, so I'll stop the conversation here.
The fact that you believe my date of birth on the website is real is the very definition of hilarious, and at the same time, all your points lost their meanings the moment you demonstrated that you don't even think twice before spewing meaningless platitudes forth from your keyboard.

I wouldn't mix borderline porn with action on whatever my anime genre would be, if I wrote a certain genre of books for instance, I wouldn't shove blatant nudity in them because it simply has nothing to do with the plotplot. If I want porn, I watch porn, but I wouldn't be able to watch porn and action at the same time.

It's called exploitation fiction. Often deals with heavy sexuality and violent content. You don't need to like it or think highly of it but there it is, just avoid it and enjoy something else.

"Sexual Objectification" is a meaningless term created and used by second wave and third wave feminists. Even men who hire hookers aren't objectifying them. They're simply having sex with them, no strings attached.

This...this got derailed pretty hard.

It's certainly an interesting question to try and tackle, containing inherent challenges given the multiplicity of ethics and values stemming from Japan's specific contextual environment and our own individual experiences, which could be the result of a number of factors derived from our own individualized backgrounds. However, the thread had since been turned into a session of questioning the thread creator's stance as opposed to actually talking about anime explicitly, with any meaningful discussion being substituted with posts that extend beyond the scope of Anime Discussion.

It's difficult to separate anime and real life controversies, as, understandably, anime is made by and are viewed by people, all of whom experience anime through their own frame of reference. However, please try to keep the discussion relating to anime somehow.
