why are female protagonists so often sexualized?
>>
Because they are female.
Sometimes also because they're male.

Just Because

For the same reason you never see a fat dude or an ugly old man as a male protagonist: people care more about how your characters look at first, then they care about them once they get to know them.

It's a trope as old as literature, all the Greek heroes and gods were good looking and fit as fuck after all.

what makes you say that?

Nah, they usually aren't fat. The furthest they go with male protagonists is gloomy eyes and messy hair.
