Just read whatever you love and like, no need to go on online forums and complain about how much you hate the portrayal of women in such stories because that just opens a can of worms as there are reverse harem stories too and don't get me started on portrayal of men in shoujo stories but everyone seems to love thrashing harem stories or portrayal of women in CN novels and that just irks me. This elitism and double started that other communities have mainly reddit and MAL has started here too like people who read R-18 harem stories belong to the bottom tier. -These are just wish fulfillment novels, you have to be extremely dense and dumb to think stories from such novel are realistic portrayal but everywhere i go there are always threads of people especially women complaining while ignoring how much reverse harem and other stories where targeted audience are females have sexism too but god forbid men who read novels that are targeted towards them. Hell, i have even seen posts where people bring up academic researches on such topic, dafuq? and the most common that i see every now and then are the male readers creating threads asking for female opinion and guidance on such novels/stories which is just pure cringe that's like asking a male readers on what he thinks about reverse harem!
