Honestly I think a better argument would be to say that Naoko Takeuchi might hold Misandrist views in general as opposed to a specific hatred of gay men. Especially as she very much likes many gay male fashion designers. Really aside from Mamoru and certain male villains no male character is of that much importance. The only one I think that could be of importance would be Helios but really he is also just Chibiusa's future love interest.

Naoko Takeuchi even said I believe that she liked weak men so she could dominate them. I think this would speak more of a general apathy to men then otherwise. I mean if a man said the reverse he would have been cancelled ages ago. Unless he was in a protected group that wasn't a Cis Het White Christian Man.

I think it is also important to note that Takeuchi inspired more lesbians to write manga and helped the birth of modern Yuri genre.

She seriously said that?

Just because the author doesn't feature enough gay men for you doesn't mean she is "averse" to them or finds them distasteful. That is a ridiculous jump in logic there, hun. Obviously Takeuchi just prefers to focus on female relationships. Cancel Takeuchi! LOL
These days almost anything can get cancelled. Just look at Pepe Lepew and a few books by Dr. Seuss. XD

I wish that instead of cancelling cartoon characters we could I don't know cancel certain ideologues of certain political and religious faiths that actually promote more insidious ideologies.

Does she have a distaste for them?
If she has a distaste for them, then she must hate the sick from the bottom of her heart, making the spartans who threw the sick children off cliffs look egalitarian by comparison.

sheesh.

Is your name Karen?
I'm sure the Karen National Union (KNU) appreciates using their name as an insult. However KNU officials are probably busy with more pressing issues, such as their bases being bombed by the junta, or their people being turned into refugees. But I have high hopes that once the civil war they are fighting in is won, they will be able to send their regards and respond in kind.

Boro you know Karen is used as a name for the archetype of the obnoxious annoying White Woman be she on the right or on the left and people who act like annoying White Woman wanting to speak to your manager, complain and censor anything they don't like or be nuisances like making false police calls, false assault charges, false rape charges, call the police on Black People just having a picnic or anyone they don't like and who just in general act a entitled mess in public. I have lived in the South and have known numerous Karens in my life usually of the more bigoted Christian sexist, racist and homophobic woman so I am very happy that this type of woman is finally getting the hatred she deserves along with people who laugh like her and believe me almost every hyper religious Southern White Woman is a Karen. and are absolute annoyances to be around. I have quite a few of them in my family especially on my dad's side.

I can kind of see the point that maybe she doesn't like men that much, since Mamoru is like the only dude in the manga, who isn't a raging dillhole.
which is funny how the original anime had him be sorta like that, in the early parts.
Artemis, Helios, Motoki, Asanuma, the Shitennou...

Huh. Now I'm stupidly curious what her reaction would be to some of my fanart... O.o
I will say from many of your fanart pieces I do like the alot especially your OC Death Busters group. The Death Busters are my favorite villain group and Eudial is one of my two favorite villains alongside Sailor Galaxia in Sailor Stars. I even wrote something in my story tieing the Death Busters and the Tau Galaxy aliens to Sailor Chi and Sailor Phi.

Likewise I have made many female and male villains in my story including male Senshi. I even thought about doing maybe a spin off team in another nation with a 5 Man band male Senshi team. I was sort of inspired by Saintia Sho a Spin Off of the Shonen Magical Boy series Saint Seiya to have a Magical Girl series with a 5 Man Band Female cast.

Zoicite and Kunzite being a thing, Saphir’s heavily implied more than brotherly feelings for Demande (and his for him?), Fiore’s whole character, Fish-Eye being gay, all of these were 90’s anime inventions and are little to non-existent in the manga
This is one of the reasons I love the 90s anime so much. They took her characters and gave them all personality which lacked in the manga. These particular characters who were changed gay gave a diverse mix and allowed people like myself who is gay to feel they could be themselves.
