    In the latest chapter of Divine Throne of Primordial Blood a woman said, "In this world, I only kill males."

    Why are there so many sexist women in Chinese novels and why is it not seen as a problem when they're sexist. If a man says he only kills women then he'd be labeled a sexist among other things but when a woman does it then nobody cares. Same with all of those female only sects that look down on men, it's like women can be as sexist as they want and it's never frowned upon

    Sexism exist on both sides in any media but with the new world order we have going on only half of it is frowned upon, while the other half is encouraged by everyone.

    Speaking of which, I can't think of a single novel where a beautiful female is killed. Even in God of Slaughter with some of the most morally incorrect content out of all of the xianxia on this site, when several girls chased him for days on end trying to kill him and his family and they finally get captured by him he just let's them live a life of comfort before releasing them. And then he goes on to rape tons of women that he's never met before. That's the type of special treatment women in these novels get

    Because male Chinese authors think that's what a strong woman will do after generations of having her gender under oppression.

    and the point wasn't that men never commit acts of sexism, it was that when a woman does it then it isn't seen as an issue. Read next time.

    If you have been to China for awhile and start too understand the culture you will know why. It isn't obvious at first, at least not to me. However after awhile I could see it clearly.

    Seriously? I think even Lin Ming said "I don't need a woman to go easy on me." Or something like that. That's not even mentioning all the rapist and such running around.

    I am not saying they never do it, what I am saying is that you only bother to speak about it when it is a woman doing it. When men do it, you don't say anything. It is exactly the opposite of what you wrote about - you said that when woman do it, no one sees it as an issue, but when men do, it is. However, you only talk about sexism in novels when a woman is committing it '-'

    Once again, I'm not complaining about men committing sexist acts BECAUSE ITS ALWAYS FROWNED UPON. READ NEXT TIME!! When men are sexist, that's it! Suddenly his a sexist asshole pig! There's no reason to make a thread about that. But when women are sexist it is never seen as a bad thing and almost even encouraged
