Not sure why you put this in our askbox. You won’t get any sympathy from us. 

Cosplay is not something for you to consume and determine. Cosplay is for the cosplayer themselves, not you. They are sharing something of theirs with others. You don’t HAVE to appreciate it. It’s not actually FOR you. That’s what the game/series/cartoon was for. 

It’s a FAN work. Not a product for you.

Also, making the statement ‘I’m getting tired of sexy cosplays or sexy genderbends’ is ignorant considering how VARIED cosplay is. Cosplay is so big and mainstream now that one can argue that there are tons of sub-genres and types of Cosplaying.

And one is not better than the other – they aren’t to be COMPARED. It’s an altogether different type of cosplaying.

Sure, there are tons of sexy cosplays out there.

But there are plenty of non sexualized versions too.

The fact that you aren’t doing the work to find and support these cosplayers is not MY fault or the sexy cosplayers fault. 

Those are two very different GENRES of cosplay. And just like genres of anything, you partake in the one you want to. 

It’s not Pop Music’s fault you aren’t listening to the Classical Music station.
