What I mean is it depends what the male is for. He cannot be hot to the fandom so he will be comedic if its a comedy, heroic if its a hero story

I think its justification for saying Kitsune is playful but not a slut. We never actually see her hang around many guys (since male side characters are really rare in these kinds of stories).
Most people just ignore that and assume she's gay as a box of tangerines which fanservice aside actually makes more sense
