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

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: So...Gokuism. Your thoughts on it?

Apparently, Gokuism is defined as "the belief that the principles of Dragon Ball provide a moral compass for one’s life, and that Goku is an ideal role model and moralistic person." This is from the Dao of Dragon Ball, and - okay, time to give my two cents on this. THIS IS THE STUPIDEST FUCKING REL...

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

You will find no more left-wing a people than queer folks. The idea that queer people (especially trans people) would so uniformly espouse communism as a 'violent' political ideology is pretty ridiculous. We'll defend ourselves but our politics are staunchly not authoritarian. Most LGBT people toda...

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

Just want to add that it's ok to "argue with the dictionary". The dictionary is a helpful resource, but it's important to know when to put it aside and use your own judgement and reasoning. You shouldn't just assume that the dictionary is always right. No, but that doesn't mean you can make up your...

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. Not at all. You're the one claiming the USSR and Maoist China were right-wing. Because that's wrong. A state w...

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

Calling the likes of the USSR 'reactionary conservatives' makes zero sense. It seems like you're trying to redefine everything to fit your preconceived notions - everything left must be good, and everything right must be bad, so every bad government had to have been right-wing, and not left-wing. I...

Freeza's hover chair

Kind of a silly topic, but I was just wondering if it had some kind of anti gravity technology or he just levitated it with his own ki or telekinesis.

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: With DB targeting a more international audience nowadays, do you see a minority someday becoming part of the main ca

I agree that adding new characters just as token minorities is pointless. A character should actually have a connection to the story and a reason to be there. That's why I want Uub to become a main character, because he was established quite a while ago and it would feel natural for him to join the ...

Make Oob trans. That'll give them a personality. Okay, okay, serious post: Mx. Oob goes to Washington to advocate for a UBi and social safety in general. There's no Washington lol. You probably mean Central City, where the king lives. Sweetie I'm referencing the Jimmy Stewart film. 😭😭😭😭 I know, you...

Re: Why didn't Zamasu account for Zeno?

If there is uncertainty in Super Shenron being able to grant "any" wish, I would think that the story would have made that point known by this point. According to both of the Zeno here, the dragon can infact do anything. https://youtu.be/LmvwPVwxQtk Yeah but they said that about the original Shenro...

Re: Why didn't Zamasu account for Zeno?

Like I said, we don't know if a wish to directly harm/overthrow him would work, but a wish to remain beneath his notice probably would have. If he wished that Zeno would never find out about the plan, then perhaps the button just wouldn't work when Goku pressed it. If there is uncertainty in Super ...

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

Also thinking consensual enjoyment of sex and sexual assault are on equal grounds is a huge fucking red flag. It's characteristic of the conservative mindset in America. They base their ideas of morality mostly on Divine Command Theory - God (or whatever other authority they follow/believe in) says...

Only because he hasn't appeared enough to be given a chance to have one yet. GT could have done so much more with him.

Not the same, just prone to similarly bad points of extremism. A false equivalence is a false equivalence.
