Why are people sexist to fairy type?

Fairy may seem a bit feminine, but it's not anymore feminine than fighting type is masculine.

Hey, I'm a girl, and I never complained about the Fighting-type.

I don't get why guys get to complain about a Fairy-type. The game is already full of cutsie mons with obvious appeal for girls. Why complain about it now?

Why do people assume this has anything to do with sexism at all?

This. It's not "sexist" so much as "homophobic", and probably "insecure". It's the same thing that makes people rage and foam at the mouth any time they see a character from "My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic" anywhere on their monitor.

It's like these immature little boys completely forgot about the massive amount of feminine Pokemon that have been introduced over the years.

For example, CleFAIRY is normal type which is completely fine with them. But change it's typing to "Fairy" then they have a huge problem.

Sylveon for example is the most feminine looking Eeveelution without a doubt, but if it were confirmed to be "Light" type, they wouldn't have an issue with it.

Slap on the "Fairy" typing, outrage ensues. I think they're insecure with their own masculinity and have something their hiding within themselves.

Is there visual proof that sexism is the reason here? At this point I think it's just being thrown around, because clearly, people don't have a problem with Pokemon like Togekiss and Gardevoir existing.

Its more about homophobia, and insecurity about their masculinity. They are a sad, pathetic people. Best not to take them seriously.
