Re: Lets stop Asian hate - what can we do?

Corporations aren't limited to white people. And no, they do not have absolute power over you. White people control the majority of the power in the world. Corporations are why we don't have universal healthcare. They successfully lobby against it so that poor people (of which they know a majority ...

Re: What do you prefer? The more battle orientated style of Z or the adventuristic aspect of DB?

I definitely think Dragon Ball is inappropriate for children due to its content. It's also unsuitable as a mainstream adult work because its content is offensive and has no intended elicitation of an erotic response.

Re: Lets stop Asian hate - what can we do?

Corporations and white elites are a neo-feudal system. They do have absolute power over us. They are the reason I and many others can't get life-saving medical treatment.

Kemuri and James out here making fire posts. Love the reads and I encourage everyone else to re-read their posts for there is a lot of great content there.

Re: "Dragon Ball Super (Manga)" Official Discussion Thread

I'm just...confused...why is it Gokuu is facing the foreground with Moro coming up from behind? The cover doesn't make much sense to me because of that. I think the lava, rocks, and clouds of dust etc around Moro point this up as a sort of take on that scene in Chapter 64 where he pops out of the g...

Re: Collectors: storage options, climate control, etc.

I originally bought my corner BILLY bookcase to house my US Monthly JUMP issues from Viz but those have remained in my closet on a shelf, stacked upon each other as a result of...well...shoving all of my other books and shit onto the BILLY. I've got some pretty heavy books stored on my BILLY and whi...

Re: What do you prefer? The more battle orientated style of Z or the adventuristic aspect of DB?

I like variation, so I can't say I prefer one over the other. I want to see a story where battles are a mixture of an adventure's rising action and climax while also being sparse.

Re: Would you Have Auditioned for Super?

I mean, I am pretty good at pretending to be a man. But lord, move to Texas to get paid peanuts? Sheesh, I'd rather not. It's also less safe for trans women down there then it is here in WA. Also, I try to avoid switching back to my deadvoice since it's so painful on my voice so I wouldn't really wa...

In this case it is. You may as well let them rewrite the entire story and change lines as well.
We should. They're doing the work.

Re: Would you have liked more female or feminine looking namekians?

The Outcast was riddled with a lot of issues. It was supposed to be about homosexuality but wound up becoming about gender because of Berman's homophobia. Of course, this is a prime example of the sort of shit I just take a heavy sigh over. Treating GNC and trans people like we're some mythical, hi...

Re: Would you have liked more female or feminine looking namekians?

I mean, as a marginalized person--the type to be turned into a gutless metaphor by mainstream fiction--I just don't care for metaphors and find them frankly insulting. Progress has to be forced through amd seeing a metaphor for a person like me no matter the year is just...ugh. It bugs the hell out...

Re: Would you have liked more female or feminine looking namekians?

It's hardly a bad idea. Dragon Ball has such a wide-reach that there are bound to be trans kids watching. A simple, nonchalant "Oh, I'm a girl, actually" would suffice. I would be upset if the trans character were Namekian, though. Casting trans characters as aliens just others us and I do not care...

Re: Would you have liked more female or feminine looking namekians?

I was going to say there could also be Namekians who identify as female. That'd be a heck of a concept. A Namekian on Earth at the end of the Namek Arc discovers the entire concept of "female" and realizes they identify as one, in a male-only society. Not exactly a story suited for your typical Dra...

Re: Would you have liked more female or feminine looking namekians?

Femboy Namekians when? I was going to say there could also be Namekians who identify as female. I didnt know femboy wasnt a slur. It's not a slur if the person identifies as one. I for one do not identify as a femboy but plenty of trans people and cis men do. It's basically an even more genderqueer...
