There's no need to be a moral reason to justify vilifying Yamcha, if someone wrote that he didn't pay a bill on time and justify it to make him worse than Freeza that's their right.rereboy wrote:What was being discussed was Yamcha being vilified in fanfiction. Yamcha cheating is not a sufficient moral reason to focus the "evil eye" on him since he does no worse than the person he cheated on did to him. Heck, most of the time he is vilified to make Bulma and Vegeta look better, when, in truth, Bulma was at least as bad as him and Vegeta was a literal genocidal killer.
Also, if you really want to go there, I'll point out I don't engage in absolutes. Saying that cheating = bad person is an equivalency that doesn't conform to the real world with all its factors and intricacies. But I never meant to go there, actually. I was just pointing out that Yamcha being a cheater is a moot point as far as moral justifications go to vilify him in fanfiction.
Once again I don't understand why Bulma being as bad or worst than him is an argument for people not vilifying him.
I was just pointing out in-universe scummy things he did that might inspire people to write such a story.
Bad person is an easy and wide term, I shouldn't have used it. But you get what I meant, they both did crappy things.
Yet he never got married and wanting to do it doesn't make you a saint otherwise divorce wouldn't exist. I don't remember that interview could you please link it?Dbzfan94 wrote:Except there is. There's nothing implying that Yamcha would cheat, in fact implies the opposite when 1) Yamcha wanted to get married 2) toriyama mentioned in a different interview that he's still shy around girls and got fired from an escort/bodyguard job because of it. Both interviews cannot be true.
Back to the Bulma point, she'd cry and moan about Yamcha cheating when girls flirted with him and/or he so much as looked at someone. Despite flirting with every handsome guy she sees and expresses looking for an upgrade. Bulma's super insecure, and insane jealous streaks really discredit her point.
I don't remember Bulma ever lying in such context, she might exaggerate stuff but she would never lie and that's present Bulma. Future Bulma the one who mentioned Yamcha cheating had lost all those childish traits and she wouldn't bad-mouth someone who died.
I maintain my stance there's no contradiction. The best argument is that after they got together their relationship was barely touched any more.
