Double standards, I has them.
I can’t really justify this sort of gut reaction; but, if I were to try, I think I might explain how, to me, female declarations of “such-and-such character is mai waifu” seem more of a self-mocking statement of admiration and less like a blunt admission of sexual attraction. Then again, I don’t think many male anime fans say things like “mai waifu” completely seriously, and there are so many queer people in anime fandom that a black-and-white type of dichotomy between “male” and “female” doesn’t really make a whole lot of sense anyway.
