Seriously? There's seriously people who say Wikipedia is "a highly unreliable source"? Ok, fine. Here's every single reference source used in the Transphobia article on Wikipedia. Take your pick.

Re: It's 2014, what would you like to see in toku hero diver

I feel like the conversation just needs to be dropped. It's clear each of you have your own views and aren't coming to a concensus anytime soon. No one's right and no one's wrong but I don't think this convo has a pleasant end. Except going out of this, Virginian is still being incredibly offensive...

Re: It's 2014, what would you like to see in toku hero diver

Yep. That makes you a transphobe. You are clueless. If a transwoman says they're a woman, they're a woman. Until they get SRS they are not a woman, they are a transwoman. Which you clearly stated, if they were a woman you wouldn't have referred to them as transwoman. The label of trans woman is bec...

Not all SJWs are like that, just the loudest ones. Honestly I've learned a lot of really great things from tumblr, I'm glad I'm on there.

Re: It's 2014, what would you like to see in toku hero diver

Social Justice Warrior. Tumblr is full of people fighting for one cause or another or many. Sadly most SJWs are incredibly combative and antagonistic, and you kinda have to fight fire with fire just get a word noticed sometimes. It's a disease, honestly. Need to remind myself of my mantra of "Be exc...

You're right. I apologize for the labeling. I think I've been on the SJW part of tumblr too long.

Re: It's 2014, what would you like to see in toku hero diver

Would we be telling people to not be calling someone out by saying they're a racist if they were using the n* word, or by constantly making black jokes whenever Suika Arms is used in Gaim? Would we be telling people to not call someone out by calling them a homophobe if they started constantly refer...

Re: It's 2014, what would you like to see in toku hero diver

So you're a transphobe. Ok. Nope. Women have vaginas. If a person born male wants to transition to female they are not female until they get SRS. Yep. That makes you a transphobe. If a transwoman says they're a woman, they're a woman. You don't get to make that decision based on what you know or do...

Re: It's 2014, what would you like to see in toku hero diver

Just that I am not agree with the "without penises" part. I mean what if he is a transgender acting as a female? Or an intersexual? I have one unequivocal & unwavering standard for female, she must not have penis at that particular moment, if she had one in the past that doesn't matter. So you're a...

Re: It's 2014, what would you like to see in toku hero diver

It hasn't been stated that he's straight either, you seem to think that straight is the default if a character's sexuality is not explicitly referred to and that's simply not true. Shotaro and Philip for example can be easily seen as a gay couple, who says they're not? Hint: It wasn't the show (unl...

Re: It's 2014, what would you like to see in toku hero diver

I don't think Bravo is necessary a villain. He definitely has his own self-interests and acts on them but I don't see him actually harming innocents and non-combatants on purpose. He's rather a decently developed character actually Well the villain bit was aimed more at Izumi/Luna Dopant. I conside...

Re: R.I.P. Justin "JewWario" Carmical

Justin was actually a very close personal friend of mine. Last week was pretty hard, but we're all managing. I made a patch in memorial for him. I was helping him with his Famikamen Rider web series project, but have no clue what's going to happen with that now. Honestly I don't see continuing the s...

Re: It's 2014, what would you like to see in toku hero diver

I guess one twist in this conversation is the question of whether representation in itself is good enough? I have a friend who gets highly offended by the representations of gay characters in Japanese media, because more often than not, they're played off as jokes. I don't think it was too bad with...

Wow it's been a while since I've contributed to this board, but I saw this topic and couldn't stay away. So lets break it down: Doughnut Shop Manager from Wizard is played by Kaba-chan, who is in fact an openly gay comedian. This is already a great step in the right direction for Toei, but add onto ...

Re: 2014 Sentai - Ressha Sentai Tokkyuger

"Train Sentai Express-Trainger". That's really not a clever title at all. What the fuck, Japan. I'd say it's probably more like Train Sentai Expressger. Just like how Densha is shortened to Den in Japanese, in English people usually say they're going to catch the Express, they don't usually say the...
