Confidence is beauty. Beauty is confidence. We don't teach young girls this, do we. Or women, for that matter. We are sold beauty by companies that don't have the honesty to show 50 year old models in their  'age defying cream' adverts. They use an  18 year old instead. They throw away the 'old' models like Isabella Rosselini because she's old, not fresh....

I'm with the Japanese feminists on this one. I'm a western feminist and otaku myself, and I can tell you that a lot of the women in anime are oversexualized. Some of the female characters are fine, but overall women in anime aren't really in the progressive sector.
