Will anime's inevitable slide into the mainstream lead to a more progressive fandom?

Honestly both sides need to take a chill pill. And look at the world outside of America. Tbh anime and manga isn't exclusively catering to just straight males. There's also shoujo a huge demographic and other ones. I feel like most people discussing how sexist or homophobic manga and anime don't read or watch a lot...
Then there are anti-sjws that just get triggered by anything "progressive" and just live to annoy and argue with people.

Just sexualizing female characters isn't sexist on its own, it's when females are reduced to objects of male gaze and little to nothing else that it becomes an issue, reflecting and/or perpetrating regressive attitudes.
It's not an issue. It never was. That part is all in your head. You seriously think that if anime were to stop treating female characters like that, all the REAL problems women face in every day life would just go "poof"? Lol dream on. Anime isn't the problem here.

Naught but a flash, 'fore it's gone;
Its twinkling causes an inkling
That what was once forgotten
Shall soon be remembered.
