Just a friendly reminder that Anno and Co. originally intended for Rei Ayanami to creep the hell out of us.
Rei was, for all intents and purposes, a personified backlash against the hordes of 80s and early 90s fanboys who slobbered over female characters, and who figured that having a 2D girl that obeyed your every whim and had no voice as your own personal fuckdoll would be pretty damned sweet.
In other words, they wanted a placid, soulless little girl to wank over.
And Anno delivered. Oh, boy, did he deliver.
And then she got fetishized anyway and Gainax made merchandise to ride that.
So you know.
“I think people sometimes get the wrong impression when they’re like, ‘Oh, well, so-and-so was straight and then she was gay, and now she’s straight again’, you know? But it’s like, how many times do I have to kiss a woman before I’m gay? Everybody wants to label people. Sometimes you just fall in love with somebody, and you’re really not thinking about what gender or whatever they happen to be. I think that if I happen to fall in love with a woman, everyone’s going to make a big deal out of it. But if I happen to fall in love with a man, nobody cares.”

I was about to say, do you blame them?!
Work smarter, not harder.
