I mean, I had crush on Kikyo when I was like 8 and that was mostly cuz she was the first naked anime girl I saw.. and the love triangle between She, Inuyasha and Kagome was pretty intense at the time lol.

But there’s fine line between saying a cartoon/video game character is cute/sexy in a joking kind of way and some incel weirdo making cult like shrines to Bulma and shunning every real life woman he comes across for not looking like her.

Please do not refer to me as 'dude', thank you.
Fine, that's pretty irrelevant anyway bro. Kinda has nothing to do with what I originally posted in the first place.

The one calling everyone "honey" in the same (rather demeaning) tone can't accept "dude"? :think:

False equivalency; "Honey" is gender-neutral, "Dude" is inherently masculine, and yet you're presenting them as equivalent because you consider them to be "rather demeaning" in tone, completely ignoring the entire point here.

People often aren't huge fans of being misgendered, and you're completely ignoring that in favour of... Nitpicking something you don't like about JulieYBM's conduct?... If you find someone's conduct "demeaning", you could try just y'know... PMing them? Just y'know, talk it out, explain how you feel, deal with it like an adult.
Dragon Ball is a goofy kids cartoon from a long time ago. You take it too seriously at your own peril.

It has been discussed before, and she herself concluded that she meant nothing by it, and that it was okay. Calling it specifically as being equivalent to dude. Oh well, not my business either way. The way things are "you shouldn't do this, but it's okay for me to do this" ticks me off a bit.

Anyway, to get back on topic, is it weird to be into the scenario of someone like Goku or Tenshinhan forcing Oolong to take on the form of a young woman and then just going to town on him? Like does this hint at some deepseated moral failing on my part?
My opinions suck. You should probably mute me to spare yourself having to see them.

Only if you go out of your way to think about it, I'd say. Subconsciously, thoughts like that are always going to occur to anyone with intellectual curiosity.

It's fiction honey, it's cool to jack it to some kinky scenarios. Gokuu or Tenshinhan force-femming Oolong and then fucking him? I bat no eyes. I'm usually pretty vanilla but I also like some darker things.

So long as you don't harm 3D people it's perfectly fine to be turned on by scenarios no matter your gender.

Robo nailed it, but here's something else to consider: you're not the gurl who has to write like a stereotype to practice sounding like their gender to avoid dysphoria and wash out twenty years of pretending to masculine.

Being misgendered? Instantly fucks up the day of your average trans person and is a direct.

I kinda just like the irony of it. Oolong, a literal misogynist pig, being given the kind of body he would usually leer at, and then being manhandled by big burly guys is almost poetic

Sounds hot, especially if it is a detailed transformation process.

No. Everyone has their kinks, and provided any real people involved in your kink are consenting adults, there's no shame in it at all.
If something isn't harming anyone, and it gives you a form of pleasure, it's probably a good thing. Simple as that.

Being called 'honey' by anyone other than my mom makes me feel uncomfortable.

But not as uncomfortable as imagining detailed rape scenarios, even those involving fictional characters.

Sorry. I figured with some of Roshi's stunts (especially those in Super) and Oolong's own attempts to drug Bulma that the community had a higher than average tolerance for non-con/reluctance stories. My fault.

You wouldn't want your partner/spouse to call you honey?
