Re: Vic Mignogna

Is it really fair to call someone like Scsigs "evil"? It's not fair. I apologize to Sciggs for not saying something earlier;I couldn't figure out the best way to voice my objection at the time. Anyway, it's true that Sciggs was initially on Vic's side; We all remember that. But, he's changed his tu...

Re: Vic Mignogna

Fuck right off with this “you need to be civil about the way you talk about your abuser” I thought we dispensed with this idiocy six months ago but apparently some people are slow learners. It’s more people don’t care. Stop giving the right outs of being “misguided” or “dumb”. Don’t be naive. Some ...

Re: Vic Mignogna

That's why I'm not saying she was. She's just the one that stuck out the most to me. The other victims don't. I think that says something to my point, or at least it should. I've believed her, but, for the longest time, I didn't feel a lot of sympathy for her. That's the problem here. I wanted to l...

Re: Vic Mignogna

How exactly did she give the movement a bad name? People were harassing her for coming forward. This all goes back to victim blaming mentality. What I meant is that, from the outside looking in, she didn't appear to be that sympathetic. Sometimes people get ahead of themselves & saying things can s...

Re: Vic Mignogna

It was never about how Monica or anyone else acted, all that matters to me is if there are multiple credible accusations, which there are. Even if one or two of the accusers are jerks who everyone hates, that doesn't mean the accused party is innocent.

Re: Vic Mignogna

I'd just like to point out that there is nothing wrong with having guilty pleasures. Going back to Lovecraft, even though I acknowledge the racist and classist subtext/agenda in many of his works, I still enjoy them, because I like reading about ancient alien civilizations and incomprehensible, eldr...

I wonder what a lot of people in this thread do for a living? That might explain a lot of the attitudes.

Nafofumi treats his slaves as comrades as opposed to property.
If that were true, they wouldn't be slaves. It's a contradiction. Sorry to go back to the rape analogy, but that's like saying that someone has only consensual sex with their rape victims.

Re: Vic Mignogna

Another issue is the slave girl in Shield Hero is literally ten years old. Granted, she grows and matured into a young woman as she levels up, but still. She falls in love with him in a way that gives off Stockholm syndrome vibes. Just creepy any way you try and rationalize it, especially since she...

Re: Vic Mignogna

There's no doubt in my mind that Kavanaugh is guilty. The Republicans confirmed him anyway because they have no shame (FFS, they elected a guy who was recorded openly bragging about sexually assaulting women). ProJared... I think a lot of people were eager to believe the initial accusations because ...

Re: Vic Mignogna

There's only one anime/manga involving rape scenes that I can think of that I am a fan of - Berserk. Those scenes certainly aren't portrayed as good, inconsequential, or played for laughs. I don't know how other people here would categorize Berserk's use of rape but I think it is treated as a seriou...

Re: Vic Mignogna

Personally I enjoy the writing of H.P. Lovecraft, even though I know that he was a racist asshole and a lot of his work reflects it. That's not why I like it - I like the atmospheric descriptions, the monsters, the cosmic concepts, and many other aspects. I don't think that means that I should be co...

Re: Necessity for Future Trunks to return to the past to get help against Goku Black

His mother is a genius inventor, who can invent amazing things out of scraps. Instead of always relying on his own brute power, he could have asked his mother for help. I'm sure Bulma could have made a shrinking device, which Trunks could then use to enter Black's body undetected and then destroy h...

Re: *Can* Beerus Destroy Whis?

He can't. Angels are immortal and the Hakai cannot destroy immortal beings. Even someone like Future Zamasu, who was much weaker than the Angels, could not be destroyed by Beerus. Also, we don't really know if Zeno can erase Angels. He probably can do that, because he is the King of All, but we've ...
