Re: Vic Mignogna

It’s funny, I predicted how the fandom would react from the beginning for the most part. I knew the larger fandom would stand by him as the anime fandom IS just that toxic and evil (in general ). At least the ones invested in the story as I’m aware most anime fans don’t know or care either way. What...

Re: Toei should promoto Piccolo more as a LGBTQQIP2SAA character

All valid points, but what's the alternative - cynicism or fatalism? I'm really trying to understand. No, though I see little hope for America’s future personally. It’s more about never being complacent. As was said, American conservatives use tactics like this to make progressives drop their guard...

Re: Was the Level remastering REALLY too expensive, though? Almost certainly not.

For what it's worth Funimation has to be completely aware of what went wrong with the 30th anniversary set and why everyone is complaining about them and what the hardcore fans want. Now it is just a case of will they chose to satisfy the demand or not. I'm going to guess it will take a few more ye...

Re: Toei should promoto Piccolo more as a LGBTQQIP2SAA character

I don’t entirely agree with Kunzait’s interpretation of the otaku/anime fandom having been infiltrated by the alt right as if they were EVER (in general term) sweet loving people who weren’t bitter misogynists and racists. Maybe it’s just that I’ve been into anime for longer than most here and have...

Re: Toei should promoto Piccolo more as a LGBTQQIP2SAA character

Honestly, when I saw this thread’s title, I initially thought it was satire. Are we really up to that many letters now? LGBTQ+ is the usual abbreviation. Some folks try to be more inclusive. I use LGBTQIA+ to include intersex and asexual folks. Hopefully we can move to GSRM (Gender, Sex, and Romant...

Boku no Hero Academia has a transgender man as a hero and a transgender woman as a villain. Still waiting for the planet to explode. ❤
I so need to catch up on that.

Re: Toei should promoto Piccolo more as a LGBTQQIP2SAA character

There are many successful series that promote LGBTQ+ characters. She-Ra and Miraculous Ladybug to name a few. It would be nice if DB would join the 21st century.

I don’t think it’s my or anyone’s place to tell someone from a marginalized group how to respond or fight back. But that’s just me.

Re: Toei should promoto Piccolo more as a LGBTQQIP2SAA character

While "alphabet people" is obviously derogatory and very much an alt-right bigoted term, I will say that I do feel that having as many letters of identification as in the title of the thread is a bit absurd and could make the entire community look like a joke, and thus does more harm than good. My ...

Take what you wrote, swap it to be about any minority and their negative stereotypes and that user would instantly get banned.
Yeah it’s almost as if context matters or something.

Re: Toei should promoto Piccolo more as a LGBTQQIP2SAA character

Representation is not so complex that it cannot be done in Dragon Ball. Literally Piccolo saying "I'm asexual" is a good first step. The novel I'm working on is actually centered on LGBTQIA+ themes so of course it would focus a lot on it but for a series like Dragon Ball it's enough to have charact...

Re: Toei should promoto Piccolo more as a LGBTQQIP2SAA character

Honestly, if Toei actually wanted to promote LGBTQ characters, Dragon Ball isn’t the franchise I’d go with. Something like Sailor Moon would be much more fitting and already has a following with the LGBT community. Plus isn’t Haruka canonically non-binary?

Re: Toei should promoto Piccolo more as a LGBTQQIP2SAA character

Seriously, stop treating the term “identity politics” like it’s a BAD thing. You are all playing into the AltRight/Republican (no difference really) handbook. Idiots letting them dictate the language of politics is why you LOSE!

Re: Toei should promoto Piccolo more as a LGBTQQIP2SAA character

I hate being grouped with these alt right reactionaries when that's legitimately the first time I've ever used that phrase in any context. Especially as a black guy. The problem is the Right tricked you idiots (general you) into toning down your dialog and thus turning certain things into dirty wor...

Re: Toei should promoto Piccolo more as a LGBTQQIP2SAA character

If I'm reading the Wikipedia page correctly, it was the first SCRIPTED kiss between a white and black person on TV. Sammy Davis Jr. kissed Nancy Sinatra about a year before. This is the truth. It was a big deal, but not THAT big a deal. Especially because I think the controversy was manufactured to...
