@RetroBoy I have removed the last paragraph of your post. This site is rated PG13, and that did not make it. Please remember that we have a significant number of young members, and post accordingly.
Well, like I said, its about attraction. Men are attracted to vulnerability. Which is why most Mega-Feminists are single, lonely and miserable people. From a legal point of view woman should be free and equal. However, powerful, successful career women will often find it more difficult to find "men" who will be willing to marry them. I have a very dear friend who is in this very situation right now while still being a skilled psychologist and a very attractive lady.
There are many men whose wives earn more than them and they are completely fine with it--but there are many more who struggle with this; and this is because chemically we are wired to seek out certain things. It is nothing to be ashamed of.
Many woman will attest that the happiest they have ever been is being a mother and this is because their brain gives them a massive dopamine hit around children. Men, on the other hand, require victories and to a lesser extent admiration. It is why we trade war stories and are typically better comedians. It is less to do with "potential" and more to do with motive. When a man tells a joke, other men want to laugh to assure him, especially when they are fond of him. As it is part of our instinct as pack hunters. While when women do it (even if it is the exact same joke) it will typically garner less laughs. This is because typically, the lizard-brain part of the human mind is thinking "Why is she here?" and "She should be safe" and requires that extra jump. This is because comedy is risky and the basic human instinct is to our females. We've built a whole society around women, honestly. Woman are (no pun intended) the mother of invention.
I'm feeling also that we shouldn't talk about the person making these videos - we should talk about the topics that are actually addressed in the series.
I've never understood how the 'money making scheme' came to be in the first place - all there is is a kickstarter to finance the series, which is delivered, and it turned out that the desire for a documentary about sexism in video games is more popular than expected.
And now a bunch of angry men think it's propaganda because it derides their favourite games, proving that none of the youtubers who hate her watched the videos (or even the first minute of the original).

To get back to topic:
I do use fanservice, but not for the main character and not of the skimpy clothes kind.
Though the 2 sidekicks are literally a cat girl combat maid and a white knight with a giant... axe.
I do have a shy musician, a genki girl, a tsundere, a bookworm, a tomboy, a cross dresser, a muscular suits guy, a vampire, a halve elf and much more that could be considered to be fanservice. (Heck I even have halve a dozen middle aged (or older) men and an old lady as party characters.)
I think all those tropes can be considered fanservice, since they cater to once demographic or another.
