Re: Dragon Ball Super Gets Cancelled Overseas Over Sexual Harassment Claims

Unless there's some big hoax or lie about what the special entails, or we've somehow misunderstood that everyone accidentally left out the part where suddenly he takes back every shitty thing he said, then saying it is still wrong. If anything, what's disingenuous is saying anyone who takes issue wi...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Gets Cancelled Overseas Over Sexual Harassment Claims

I wasn't trying to imply that it was all sweet and rosy, It's stand up comedy, of course its going to sting a little, especially considering who's performing alls I was just saying was that folks should watch it first before passing judgement to understand the full context. Unless the end of the sp...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Gets Cancelled Overseas Over Sexual Harassment Claims

It's just -- there's not a lot left to discuss in relation to this topic. Roshi sucks, some people complained, now it's delayed until it gets edited. I'm not sure there was a lot of great deep discussion here before, mostly it was someone going "THE LEFT WANTS TO CENSOR EVERYTHING" and us saying "Yo...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Gets Cancelled Overseas Over Sexual Harassment Claims

You asked "why are people talking about US politics on a Dragon Ball forum" before, and the answer was pretty obvious: it was politics that extended beyond the US, and while admittedly a tangent, it was one that pretty logically followed from the topic at hand. Not gracefully, mind you, but it's not...

Re: Why does the OG Dragon Ball gets so little love from TOEI / BANDAI etc

Something doesn't need to be "as bad" as real-world pedophilia to still be bad enough that it shouldn't be in a given series. The real argument should be that nudity is not inherently sexual and that the framing, context and portrayal of a given scene can completely change its perception. I mean, I'...

Re: Is there a dominant person in Vegetto and Gogeta or not?

I mean Goku did mention in db heroes that he was the dominant one in Gogeta. Even if it's not canon there's a reason why some people are inclined to think Vegetto is basically Vegeta dominant. Vegetto and Gogeta were deliberately hamming it up in their more substantial appearances, though. In the Z...

Re: Is there a dominant person in Vegetto and Gogeta or not?

Potara and metamoran fusions aren't really characters, is the thing. They're techniques with a quirk. The series doesn't seem interested in providing any vision or nuance as to what being merged with another person would actually be like. The best you can get is that Goku + Vegeta = excess confidenc...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Gets Cancelled Overseas Over Sexual Harassment Claims

I wasn't originally talking about feminism. I was talking about the left-right paradigm in general, and I was objecting to the idea that anything leftist is automatically good, and that it's impossible to go too far left. And as we've gone over, your examples for those claims were bad, and combined...

Ok, all the politics/economics/society/whatever made my head spin. I mean i get that discussions in threads go off topic to other discussions sometimes but seriously what does any of what was posted on the last few pages have anything to do with this topic specifically? Honest question here because...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Gets Cancelled Overseas Over Sexual Harassment Claims

They literally aren't economically left. How many times do I have to say this? Private ownership by a state, especially in places that don't even have democracy, is not public ownership.

Re: Dragon Ball Super Gets Cancelled Overseas Over Sexual Harassment Claims

Sure, if you count every single person who has ever died while living in a capitalist nation as a 'death caused by capitalism'. :roll: Considering what we just went over in terms of attributing random shit to communism, that would be fair. But also, no, it's specifically deaths by wealth inequality...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Gets Cancelled Overseas Over Sexual Harassment Claims

Of course I know that. But some people here are advocating for 'destroying capitalism', and when I point out where that has lead to historically, they go 'no, that doesn't count, it wasn't real communism, it was actually right-wing fascism'. Which is why it needs to be reformed. But don't throw the...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Gets Cancelled Overseas Over Sexual Harassment Claims

It’s like with video games, should I go out and shoot people just cause I can in GTA? Ummm, no!

Re: Dragon Ball Super Gets Cancelled Overseas Over Sexual Harassment Claims

It's like how some conservatives claim that the Nazis couldn't have been conservative because they called themselves 'socialist'. This is literally the thing that you are doing, right now. Or state ownership. That's another part of the definition you are ignoring. Because that's wrong. A state will...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Gets Cancelled Overseas Over Sexual Harassment Claims

Seems you have your own peculiar definition of communism and ignore all of the other ways it's been conceived of and implemented throughout history. I see no evidence that a completely stateless, anarchist society would ever work on a large scale either. No, I have the definition. It's your problem...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Gets Cancelled Overseas Over Sexual Harassment Claims

The issue is that everything produced for DB up to this point is for kids, not adults, Well, that's for a reason, and it's not just marketing. If you have a kids series that officially also contains pornography, there's a pretty necessary connection there that's going to happen in advertising, arch...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Gets Cancelled Overseas Over Sexual Harassment Claims

Yeah. You can do the same with official works, too. Not every indie artist draws pre-established IP, either. I doubt they will but hell it's better than what they're doing now. I don't think it should be a mystery why they don't make erotic adult content for a children's series. Yes, Dragon Ball ha...

Not the same, just prone to similarly bad points of extremism. A false equivalence is a false equivalence. And if those posts don't represent what you're saying, then maybe you're just a bad communicator. So I should blame myself for your dishonesty? How very rational and big-brained of you. You di...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Gets Cancelled Overseas Over Sexual Harassment Claims

Fine then, you win. Capitalism is always evil and communism is the perfect way to go. All communist governments that ever did anything evil were actually right-wing governments in disguise. Let's have another October Revolution, I'm sure that nothing can possibly go wrong this time. :roll: You can'...
