I didn't, and I've explained in detail why I didn't. If you're ignoring the nuance, then that's your issue. Calm down, go to sleep, get a good rest and come back tomorrow and re-read everything again.

Re: Vic Mignogna

You cared enough to make several posts on the subject after explicitly telling people you didn't care enough to make another post on the subject. This isn't rocket surgery. It's a contradiction. You're a contradiction. See if you can get this through your head: just because I spend some of my free ...

Re: Vic Mignogna

lol @ this idea that Vic "didn't mean it" This shit has been going on for 10+ years with him, and it is 99.99999% likely he knew exactly what the word on the street was about himself. Normal people would hear the very first accusation and reevaluate their own shit. Yet here we are. It is perfectly ...

Re: Vic Mignogna

I'm not isolating anything from its context. It's specifically because of its context, a man meeting his fans, that it's nothing more than an innocuous greeting that does not constitute sexual assault. Imagine thinking that being someone's fan means you tactictly consent to unsolicited physical con...

Re: Vic Mignogna

Nice try, but that wasn't a "gotcha" (more of a passing observation, really) and the circumstances haven't changed at all. You said that you would stop posting in this thread because you didn't care enough about the subject to continue, which, as we now know, is bullshit because you do care. You do...

Re: Vic Mignogna

Also, the pictures are only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the allegations. People keep saying this, but I haven't seen anything else. It's the pictures kissing and hugging fans, which are harmless by themselves, some of which are being spread around even though the people in those picture...

Re: Vic Mignogna

Trust me a lot of members on here are working class. Did I say they weren't? A lot of the members attacking those they disagree with are middle class liberals, however. JFC. It’s not just a “kiss on a cheek” it’s a grown ass middle-age men acting HIGHLY inappropriate around teenage girls. A man who...

Re: Vic Mignogna

Ah, yes, the tried-and-true time-honored tradition of dozens of people coming out and calling a Z-list actor a asshole and sexual assaulter for shits and giggles. Truly remarkable and fun. I didn't say this. In that case I would say the threshold you have within your mind for what constitutes sexua...

I said I wouldn't post anymore, but since people keep throwing potshots at me: I think it's interesting that the (very obvious) liberal middle-class and elite on this forum is blowing this out of proportion while simultaneously calling the skeptical, presumably working class (at least I speak for my...

Yeah, I thought the chanting was a bit dubious when the soundtrack came out, but it fits perfectly in the movie and I love it now.

Re: Sexual Assault: Fiction and Reality

If you think Children are always clothes in public in the real world then you are living with your head in the sand. I hope that works out for you. Not all of us are so privileged to live in first world countries where we can all afford clothing. I was speaking within the context of Japan, a first-...

Re: Vic Mignogna

then it's unclear why "minding my own business" in this case would be ethically sound. Why is it not? You certainly don't know if your good intentions will have any negative repercussions. It is preferable to save yourself the consequences your direct actions may have than it is to save yourself th...

Re: Sexual Assault: Fiction and Reality

Yes, all in contexts which are utterly sexless. Children have genitals. Children will be nude sometimes. Did you know that children are actually born nude, with their genitals exposed and everything, around at least one grown adult? I don't know if you're missing the point on purpose. Yes, I know t...

Re: Vic Mignogna

If a child is drowning in front of you, and you are the only one in a position to save them, and you do not, you are in part responsible for that child's death. I'm replying to this because it's an interesting point. Legally, yes. I don't think you're ethically responsible for a stranger's life, no...

Re: Sexual Assault: Fiction and Reality

Alright, so you don't actually understand the issue people are taking with this in the first place. Kame Sennin's antics are presented within a specific context, and as a result they communicate certain ideas, unconsciously: "sexual assault is funny and has no negative consequences; victims of sexu...

Re: Sexual Assault: Fiction and Reality

I disagree. If other characters were looking at Goku's child penis and showing attraction to it, then it would be problematic. But without that, it's just a body part. Body parts are not inherently sexual. But that's not the point. The gags aren't inherently malicious either, but the argument is th...

The people who've replied to post have all missed the point. I said "it should be more troubling" meaning I don't think it's the case. The point was: the people who are concerned over the depiction of sexuality in Dragon Ball should be more concerned with the depiction of kid Goku's penis. I , pers...

Re: Sexual Assault: Fiction and Reality

just that it represents keeping in step with what fell within the realm of (privileged-majority-imposed) social norms of the time rather than Toriyama or the series going out of their way to be transgressively mean-spirited I disagree. He wouldn't have made an entire comic like Lady Red if they wer...
