that is exactly the approach i used (with a touch of
heavyarms, heh) about a few months ago (same topic
different people. the guy who sprouted the
"it's-porn-coz-japanese-like-underwear" logic is a new
guy who wasn't around the last time i ranted). i was
fairly successful in shutting them up and getting them
to admit that the reason why they dislike anime is
simply because of the animation style, appearance (big
eyes, small mouth), and even storyline and style of
storytelling. when i needled them to list all the
anime they've watched that they claim to prove anime
is sexist porn, they couldn't come up with any.

i'm just a bit exasperated to wind up another full
blown rant (rearming heavyarms) at my fellow rpg
gamers. some of them are too busy staring at
chainmail bikinis. :P
