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

They were always written as male, but given they reproduce asexually, there's no need to have a gender distinction. I guess it's easier to write "him" than whatever the pronoun for a genderless being is. The pronoun for non-binary folks is 'they/them'. I've also seen one who uses 'it/its' for their...

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

Namekians technically don't have genders either come to think of it. They were always written as male, but given they reproduce asexually, there's no need to have a gender distinction. I guess it's easier to write "him" than whatever the pronoun for a genderless being is. The pronoun for non-binary...

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

Ooh, I typically dislike playing as original characters but if I could be a transgender catgirl...hmmm... Being able to make non-binary characters would be interesting, too. More enby characters in the franchise in general would be a nice touch, especially if it helps educate viewers about their exi...

Re: Vic Mignogna

I've always believed the alt-right are bullies that never grew up, with Rekieta being the latest example. I realized lately how many parallels I'm seeing to Trump in how many blindly follow an unqualified, unethical individual despite the mass dissent/counsel of others in his field. Problem is, we ...

Re: If you were to design Super Saiyan Blue 2, what would it look like?

Super Saiyan 2 is so redundant that it's no surprise Toriyama forgot about it. There's really no place for it within a narrative structure. The Broli fights were pushing it already with three transformations. I don't think there's any further room for expanding on Blue. The comic has Full Power Blue...

Re: If you were to design Super Saiyan Blue 2, what would it look like?

It would merely be Super Saiyan 2 with the power of Super Saiyan God but since we know that Super Saiyan is the most balanced form among the three original forms I don't see how this would be an improvement.

Re: Vic Mignogna

With regards to me, since I'm still early in my transition, I do get misgendered a lot even when I'm wearing lip stain and turning the mannerisms up to 11. I experience it like a sharpened pencil stabbing my palm, so if I have the courage in the moment I'll correct the person. With co-workers it's a...

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

The younger staff with more wide-ranging tastes definitely have an effect on the characters being more queer and gender and sex non-conforming. It also helps that there us a genuine fandom for queer characters and themes. Otaku are by nature queer, even if their relationships with 3D partners are h...

OFF-TOPIC: Not to sound like an asshole, but why put names of shows in italics? Doesn't that make the post much harder to write? Or is it just habit? To follow up on the previous two responses, I have to say I feel it's not exactly getting the whole point across just to say it's an idiosyncratic pe...

In before Scott McNeil as the new dub Broli. Anyway, the judge's reading of this case seems to be really fucking nonsensical. It's like he can't read between the lines? I don't even know. As for Chuck Huber: he worked on Star Trek Continues with Vignogna so I'm not surprise that there's something s...

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

Bisexuals either get shamed for being 'posers' within the community or have people say that they don't exist or can't be in het relationships. Ugh. I've never understood that mindset, even as a straight man looking at the situation from the outside. What on Earth would possess other non-straight pe...

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

bi, transmen, and non binary representation is still a really big issue within the queer community. especially with transmen, it's like the only instance where you can say "what about the men" and not sound like MRA. Yeah, definitely. They have it so bad. I am the only trans girl I have known to wo...

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

More often than not commercial forces have to be forced to include minorities in their works. Things have only improved slightly in recent times for gay and lesbian representation but I know there's still a big for exploring the culture of the bisexual, pansexual and transgender communities in work....

I love being a member of the LGBTQIA+ family. It's a lot of fun and really helps you learn about the true recessess of yourself and humanity.

Writing this stuff isn't that hard, folks. You waste too much time beating around the bush for the sake of appearing like 'high-art' when all you need to do is be direct.

Just to reiterate: the bare minimum I was asking for is taking Kale and Caulifla a step further and having the ambiguity dropped. A fun victory kiss and snuggle. Boom. Done. No more or less than Gokuu and Chi-Chi. Now, if y'all don't mind I'm going to get back to fantasizing about a nice boy marryin...
