Okay, so I came across this article on Facebook which shows that a woman on twitter is claiming Dragon Ball is a misogynist sexist show which also promotes pedophilia. She wants to ban dragon ball and anime in general. As soon as the tweet blew up, the English voice actor of Bulma came to defend the show, etc. In the end, the woman deleted her account and vanished.

Now it is very clear that it is a troll who was just maybe looking to piss off people but I have been reading comments saying that most of the people agree that Dragon Ball does have a lot of 'sexist' elements but they are not intentional. They specified it that it's for 'Dragon Ball' only not Z/Super.

I googled and saw that people are discussing this topic for a lot of years now. What do you guys think about it?

Short answer Yes with a but

Long answer No with a however
I think if we spent the time we spent thinking about not spending money and spent that time on spending money, then itd be time well spent.

Ugh, this sounds like reductive garbage. You can systematically break many things down and find subtle instances of sexism and the like, but if there's no systemic harm done, it really doesn't matter. Pragmatism > logic in some cases...and this is one of them.

Good, she was poison.
I don't get it either.

She was either trolling or someone who couldn't take the heat of a fire she herself set. Either way, she has zero credibility.

Good thing she did read Toriyama’s other manga where the female main character who is trying to be a hero is literally raped by criminals and decides to become a sex worker.
