Re: Editing of painfully-outdated LGBT+ content in future DB(Z) releases?

I don't know where you are from but murder is not legal in the United States. Also I feel like your fears are slightly unfounded. Unpremeditated crime is extremely low. The odds of someone suddenly getting bloodthirsty at the sight of you alone and going from a run of the mill average guy/girl into...

Re: It's fun reading through older threads and articles!

As of right now, Kakarot is only selling me because it's actually promising to flesh out the original story and offer its own new elements to it, but it also gets a pass because it's the first DBZ action RPG on this level. If we get a DBZ Kakarot 2, I'd only accept it if it went into Super and mayb...

Re: Vic Mignogna

To be fair, isn't that guy a racist, sexist creep known for doing some pretty awful stuff? He is... But you shouldn't need to be a good person for people to acknowledge that what was done to you was wrong. She’s trans, right?

Re: Viz's Print Edition of the "Full Colour Comics" Discussion

They seem to let the "flavor of the week" dictate what they put time and effort to (i.e. titles like The Promised Neverland, Dr. Stone, etc.). Labelling The Promised Neverland and Dr. Stone as “flavour of the week” seems a little unfair as both are legitimately great series deserving of time and ef...

Re: With DragonBall getting more and more global, it's time to include more lgbtqia+ characters

Queer representation is important for the sake of normalisation within the broader community. At the same time, you can’t just introduce a character and have their single attribute be “gay”. Honestly, given the handling of heterosexual romance in the series, I wouldn’t expect much even if we were to...

Re: Would General Blue be considered offensive to the LGBTQ+ community in this day and age?

So, General Blue. As a lesbian trans woman I don’t understand the appeal of either being a man or being attracted to one, making me possibly the furthest thing from a gay man. However as a member of the LGBTQ+ community, I don’t think there’s any issue with Blue as portrayed in the manga, sure he’s ...

Re: Viz & The Dragon Ball Manga

Worth noting that while Viz never split the Naruto manga with Shippuden, Yu-Gi-Oh! got split into Yu-Gi-Oh!, Yu-Gi-Oh! Duelist and Yu-Gi-Oh! Milennium World, with Duelist being based on the portion of the manga that the anime started with.

Re: Ocean Studios' "Dragon Ball Kai" dub seems to be coming...

As seen by recent events like Toei's public acknowledgement of a Funimation release and Toei mandate that their English subtitles confirm to Funimation's dub names, it's obvious that Toei is endorsing Funimation as their definitive English version. I mean, it always was, but now it's like Toei has ...

You want a forum for a franchise with attempted child rape Uh, remind me again when this happened? Are you talking about the filler with General Blue? I think he's referring to the earlier scene when Bulma is alone on an island and two RRA goons try to assualt her. It’s she , her name is Julie. I k...

Way to down play such an important matter just because you think it's irrelevant. Making kids think they're transgendered could consti...

Re: Manga UK's Dragon Ball charity raffle for Mermaids

Yeah, just like how it's easy to accuse people of transphobia, isn't it? I don't care if a biological man wants to define himself as a woman, or a biological woman wants to define herself as a man. That's all fine with. Do what you want, it's your life. Enjoy it. That being said, it's a decision th...

And AFAIK children are generally evaluated by a professional before deciding if transitioning is best for their mental health. But hiding transphobia with feign concern is easier for some people I guess *shrug* Also true. Even as an adult, I needed approval from a psychiatrist to get access to horm...

Re: Manga UK's Dragon Ball charity raffle for Mermaids

Yes, it's a very dangerous edge to walk on. It's even worse when parents start hormone therapy with their child, bordering on child abuse. Those feelings don't always reflect that a change is needed, sometimes it can 'just' be a mental illness. Calling them 'transgender children' is a very very dan...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" FUNimation Dub Official Discussion Thread

Any chance they clean some of this up for the Blu-Ray? I'm kinda surprised this stuff is devolving to be honest as they should know better by now. They have a history of fixing things compared to the broadcast. Maybe? I recall when Funi first got One Piece after 4Kids lost the license, one of the e...

Re: Are Tien and Chiaotzu a romantic couple?

Not sure what a "cishet" is, sounds like another made up word but the show doesn't need to be reflective of any fandom. Why would it? It's a fantasy series with talking cats and pigs. I literally personally defined the word “cishet” for people like you earlier in this very thread. LGBT+ people need...

2. Shoving in LGBT characters (and ones from certain ethnic backgrounds) just for the sake of virtue-signaling how "progressive" you are is pandering. Most of non-white characters in the Marvel franchise are not products of pandering (they were around for decades). Okay, so Rhodey was introduced in...

A seemingly simple question is deceptively complex due to the various cultural and sociological baggage contained within.
