Hate when I get halfway through a fanfic only to find out the dirtfuck author has a tranny headcanon and decided not to tag the fic with it.

I'm a fucking fujoshi, I want to read about two MEN kissing and fucking, not a dude fucking a mentally ill women with a pube beard. It's so obvious the retards who write this shit are FtMs who self insert as one character and have the other as their husbando.

No. 187334

Once I was so pissed at one fic about a pairing that barely has any good fanfic that I anonymously commented to ask why it's tagged as M/M if one of the character is a woman, and pretending to be completely clueless. Of course the character was the cute, young manlet who looks younger than he is, it was so predictable. I check more fics the next day and when I found that one again the writer replied with "but the character is a man? lol?" bitch the whole point of your fic is that the other character in that pairing really wants to fuck the genderbent character in the pussy. These retards should fuck off from the internet as a whole, I'm sick of them.

You say that like it's not a very recent phenomenon. Say what you want about slash and BL being degenerate genres, they used to be straight to the point and people used to tag their fics and arts in case someone didn't want to see it or to make it easier to find for anyone looking for it. Now if you're looking for a gay fic, even a wholesome, family friendly one, you'll be bombarded with straight shit because the authors are fakebois who are projecting their special type of degeneracy on male characters.

No. 187345

I wouldn't know, I'm not a degenerate but I'm sure losing your underage boy fucking fan-fics is a great tragedy

No. 187347

Speaking of fanfic I have had the misfortune to find one for an already pretty small fandom where the main male character troons out. He's canonically a fairly masculine man but doesn't shy away from stereotypically feminine activities either, and in the fic all his conventionally masculine behaviour is dismissed as "overcompensation" for his "real self" being a submissive transbian. Of course all his allies are super-duper supportive while only the bad guys are "transphobic".

No. 187350

I barely read anything now because of this new trend so you could say I reluctantly moved on. It's not a tragedy, it's just very annoying. I don't even think I've read anything about "underaged" boys either, I just want cute stories with guys in their 20s or 30s but that's too much asked apparently.

Is it a popular "headcanon" for this character or is it just that author who's stupid in particular?

No. 187351

Maybe idk read some nice vanilla hetro content, I assure you that you won't find random cuntboys in those fics

No. 187354

Fortunately it seems to be just this author, at least for now. I don't really think the headcanon would take off outside deranged transbians, but who knows.

No. 187355

I used to do that long ago and all the writers would make the characters very OOC so I gave up at some point. I mean, even more OOC than with gay pairings. Het ships attract more normies so I guess that's why there's way less chance of finding weird ftm shit. Maybe I grew out of fics, maybe they became worse, but I'd say it's a little bit of both.

No. 187357

Right? If I wanted to read a straight pairing I would read a straight pairing. Fortunately the straight ships seem to not suffer from transgenderism that much. I mean, I never read straight ships fics where the female characters get turned into TIMs. Read one where the male character was a TIF (badly written as you expect) but that was tagged at least (and I was curious).
These troon m/m fics are also very weird. Everything and everyone in the fic are so sweet and happy and everyone is gay and the drama feels cheap. Like, at the same time they do a setting where homophobia doesn't exist, they put it there anyway for drama but it is already established by the author that shit is uncommon… but then there will be a crazy female character (it's always a woman) spouting homophobic crap to make the soft boy cry. I'm tired of that crap.

It's about normalizing ugliness, in case you hadn't noticed. They don't really care how ugly it looks to other people, they draw what they see as attractive and force others to accept it.
From the artist's Twitter, I can tell it's most likely an Aiden, because men don't usually draw cuntboys/transmen. So the character with the strap-on is probably, in a way, the artist projecting herself (through the female body) onto a man she finds attractive.

If you want to normalize ugliness there are so many better ways to do it, so why do it by drawing an old tif with grotesque details fucking someone with a strap-on?

No. 187469

It's only being upset that other women do enjoy it that makes you seem male. I don't like fujo shit either, but I don't ree about degeneracy because other anons do. It's the personality which makes someone an Aiden, you can like gay shit made for women without trooning and without thinking that troons are totally the sex they pretend to be. Maybe it's the added autism or personality disorder. All MTFs seem to be raging narc incels aiming for optimal coom after being warped by porn/the refusal to admit to being gay, while FTMs it varies more, with some in line with MTFs, but not necessarily the majority, such as ones that are trauma based, unwilling to admit they are homosexual but not seemingly for coom purposes, etc.

No. 187470


it was problematic because it somewhat eroticised sex slavery and prostitution in the first book however the overall storyline has a very clear denunciation of sexualising children and taking advantage of poor people to make them into prostitutes. the main character who grew up in royalty and thought slavery was okay as long as you treated your slaves well also came to realise how fucked up slavery is and vowed to end it in his kingdom once he came back into power

it was also deemed problematic because the main character is based off the ancient greeks and was described as having tanned skin and tumblr types took that to mean he is a black man and that the author was literally replicating the trans atlantic slave trade against african people when in the story the main character was turned into a slave due to being usurped to the throne by his illegitimate half brother.

the author is self described gender queer and bisexual lol. she’s female and claims to want to increase lgbt representation and write about her experiences but somehow all her lgbt characters are gay and bisexual males lol

Tbh SVU really started to get shitty around season 9 but I didn’t think it was this bad these days.

No. 187522

It's woke, but very tolerably so. There's almost nothing in it that's even comparably insane to the stuff posted in this thread.
Characters that are woke are framed as being more morally correct, but characters that disagree with them aren't demonized or treated like they're bad people because of that. If anything, the show does a remarkably good job of showing a realistic spread of viewpoints, and it judges characters much more on their actions than on what they believe.
If anything, there's some notable anti-wokeness too. A character will call out a 'problematic' behavior and other characters will just ignore them, with the joke being most people don't give a fuck. The mtf calls a dude a "faggot" for liking him. Another character cheats on his wife to fuck dudes and mtfs specifically.

The trans stuff is pretty lukewarm, honestly. I don't know if it's supposed to be this way or if Hunter Schaefer is just telling on himself, but the show seems to indicate that the mtf character doesn't really think of himself as a real girl. The character even muses about detransition, and that's directly due to Hunter Schaefer's contribution.

The glorification of sex and hyper-promiscuity in this show is, imo, the worst part by far. But to be fair, the fat girl learns that the "empowerment" she gained from sex work was hollow and made her into an asshole.

Anyways, sorry for huge sperg, but I put off watching it because I too thought it'd be disgustingly woke. There's problems with the show for sure (overly gratuitous sex, overly long artsy scenes, some misinfo about drugs and mental health), but the drama is very well done and intense, and the characters are well-written and likeable despite being horrible people.

I enjoyed the first season well enough, but the special episode with Rue is actually incredible and resonated with me really hard, and now I go around recommending the show to people that I know have struggled with mental health, especially if they've (ab)used drugs before.

Embedded is a three-minute clip that captures the feel of the show very well imo. (light spoilers, nothing major)

Nice introduction to a character lol. They should have just had him say his name and pronouns when they meet because that's how most TIFs reveal that they're transgender and have special pronouns anyway. TIFs are usually never happy with any representation in media, they usually always end up getting obsessed with a fictional character who is a real man with mental health struggles so I don't even know why people try to please them when they should in fact make a bisexual male character with a dark past or w/e and the TIFs will be lining up to pay to see it.

It doesn't feel like something Miranda would do at all.

this is from a different movie but Ginny and Georgia has a similar scene which featured a woke black-girl up-upping her teacher for daring to teach them the works of dead straight white man

this scene btw was written and directed by woke white women and there's this tendency among mostly woke white women to fetishize black women, it's not a sexual fetishization rather it's the fetishization of the "strong independent black woman who don't need no man" tope that you'll see a lot of media and even twitter rhetoric, the black female best friend who gives nothing but solid advice to her white friend and nothing else(which is what the black girl in the pic ends up being), It's a very bizarre relationship cause In a way it plays into a Mammy trope of turning us into caretakers or mothers for white women while it also masculinizes us greatly so that were not real women in a sense, I know not all white women have this mentality but it's common enough that supposedly woke white women have sorta subconscious backhand that men really don't like us

And also about the whining of those big subreddits being "right-wing" - I think those are populated with both leftist, rightoids and people who do not give a fuck, which seems as right-wing to some leftists, as SO MANY subreddit are fucking woke hugboxes.

Ughhh yes. What gets me too is like….I can kinda see Miranda having a crisis of faith and going back to school!

I can even buy her being a little lost in all the new jargon and shit, and getting kind of flustered. But exactly as you said, she's a fucking litigator, and she was already pretty openly feminist in the og series! This shit is not actually brand new to her!

Not to get too spergy, but what really frustrates me about the Che shit is that I think they accidentally set up something way more compelling w/ Prof. Nya. I thought, w/ her not being sure about getting pregnant, that they were going to have her connect w/ Miranda over that, and Miranda was going to struggle w/ the choices she made. Like, she loves Steve and Brady, but what if she HAD had that abortion? Her og storyline was the one that really dealt w/ working motherhood, and w/ Brady being portrayed as this shitty little fuckboy, I thought after episode 2-3 they were really going somewhere interesting. But then the Che thing happens and Nya's discomfort with having a baby never really becomes anything, and it's just….a mess.

He is totally jonesing for Dana's girldick, though. I wouldn't be surprised. Honestly, having the troon cameo in his videos is a red flag.

The perpetual cope that you acktually need to read the tenth volume in the series/a perfunctory paragraph at the end of the book to see that it totally condemns the ~bad~ things kek Frankly people have a right to complain anyway because it should be very easy to write rape/slavery scenes from the get go in a way that makes them look like well, bad things, and not the content of the author's spank bank, aided in this by the attendant framing and characters' arc as well as word choices; basic writing stuff that shows the intent behind a scene because good writers use all those tools and tricks to direct the way they want their readers to interpret and even feel reading it. It even takes considerable, concerted efforts to (try to) make those topics look sexy, and so if we make fun of moids going "Rape is bad! Anyway, here is me describing all my female heroines getting raped or perpetually sexually harassed in a pornographic level of details," I don't see why woman writers should not get mocked or be assumed to have only the purest and most high minded reasons for writing them since it's not a secret that common-grade fujos really have a thing for rape in their romance.
I guess them writing about gays is an improvement over the hetero bodice rippers that they undoubtedly would have been penning if they were born 30 years ago and not suffering from a weird displacement effect where they condemn rape and do not find it sexy as a woman, but also get off from it, so they need to write their porn featuring two men only. It has now become a general rant more than a Captive Prince specific one, but do people seriously believe that the original motivation to pick that setting and those characters and the romance is generally motivated by the author wanting to denounce the horrors of sexual slavery and not by the author being titillated by the oh so taboo, so sexy!sexual slavery?
To get back on topic, weren't there even an FTM author who wrote another professionally published (by Tor ofc, who else) ~gay~ slavefic, this time under a science fiction veneer? Docile by K.M. Szpara iirc Did anyone try to read that and has some funny bits to share?

I hear you about the if you don't wear a skirt all the time, you're not a woman thing! It's especially vexing because you can't just have a male character wearing skirts or a woman not loving make-up without it being immediately interpreted as a sign that she/he must change their gender instead of a simple clothing preference, and the part about being smart and assertive meaning you not being a woman is especially vile. I hoped we left that line of thinking firmly in the '50s, but no, the modern trans movement brought it back! Add to that that the only allowed feminism now is the girlboss slaying men with her eyeliner kind rather than the more ideologically robust 2nd wave&radical stuff, and no wonder that there is +1000% of TIFs referral for hormones and butchery.

Okay, I say this as someone who works in this publishing sector, there is not a literal quota, that is complete bullshit. YA is an overheated little tinder box that gets a lot more scrutiny (from within and without) b/c it's female-dominated, and that means you end up with Albertallis who feel they have to do this shit. I'm angry about it because being an actual lesbian in this space is suffering, but also, I get it. The truth is straight women basically writing yaoi books is not that big of a fucking deal, only girls and women read these books and men don't give a shit what they want. It has no societal power, anyone acting like "uwu the poor widdle gay boys and male authors who must be getting crowded out" is a bullshit artist. It's just easier to throw a fit about women than it is to confront anything men do, so we pretend YA novels have a huge societal impact because we can control this space and no others and women know more about how to tear each other apart than to just plant their feet on the ground and say "fuck off and read something else then."

Men, gay or otherwise, who write in female-dominated book spaces like YA get laurels thrown at their feet, don't believe anything that tells you different. We will milk a YA book by a man forever if we can – Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian is still selling like fucking hotcakes and we all love pushing it, despite the fact that Sherman Alexie had his own metoo moment. Men don't get cancelled here. The fact is they mostly don't want to write YA, and boys don't fucking read, and we can't bring ourselves to just not give a shit the way men do. Even if Albertalli and her ilk are fujos, I just don't fucking care, but we're not prepared to have a conversation about the fact that it doesn't fucking matter. They still write male characters with depth 99% of men literally never approach female characters with, ESPECIALLY lesbian characters.

No. 189460

kek that article is so blatant

Usually the complaint isn't about publishers having quotas but agents heavily favoring ownvoices-types books and telling straight white male authors they aren't wanted. I can see that happening, because everyone seems terrified of being known for working with only straight white males etc.

And yes, women cause this cancel culture themselves by not having a spine, which is why at this point I don't care honestly. Just once I'd like to see some female author or other public figure to tell the twitter crowd to go fuck themselves. It's honestly really depressing to realize how much most women fear any confrontation and conflict and how easy they are to emotionally blackmail into anything. Meanwhile like you said scrotes don't give a fuck and they keep winning.

watched superstore last night with my friends and there's this episode where they go on strike and muh evil terfs hijack the strike to protest against men in bathrooms. two of the characters (jewish straight male main character and black disabled straight guy supporting character) are super offended by this and act like the hot woman that the guy in the wheelchair likes is part of the KKK or something for saying that transgender is bullshit. it feels super forced and i wonder if they had to do that bit because in the first episode of the show they make fun of the supervisor's name (glenn) and the guy in the wheelchair calls him transglennder.

as always, gender bullshit in an otherwise okay show completely ruins the immersion and characterization of these characters. irl these types of people wouldn't give a fuck and would know fully well that men need to be kept out of female only spaces.

No. 189557

I know now that I was right when I dropped superstore half way sometime ago because it was turning so repetitive, happy to have missed the terf episode. This terf stuff feels just like those super performative BLM episodes in American series that screenwriters all scrambled to add in 2020 because the injustice against black people was just keeping them up at night, for real, when they didn't give a shit about the decade-long issues with policing in USA before (exhibit A, Brooklyn 99, which was a series about policing in the first place) or white people in fandom who were the one banging their drum the most about how you can write and read the most degen things in fics without it having any influence on anything but also that having police AUs was literally murder and racism (even when written about characters in countries without USA policing problem kek)
Park&Recreations, centered on a strong but flawed main female character in the same vein that workplace comedies like The Office, but mainly written by a woman and with better pacing and character arcs.
Also Brooklyn 99, despite later stupid episodes, is at its core a comedy about eccentric characters more than policing, 1st half of first season was fighting to establish a tone and is more generic and shitty as a result

No. 189558

i love brooklyn 99! i'm definitely gonna check out parks and recreation. i thought the brooklyn 99 episode in which terry got stopped and had the police called on him while jogging (?) in a white neighborhood was good and fit into the show, since it also talked about other issues like holt having to deal with homophobia in the police force but then i read about how basically everyone was quitting the 99 because of BLM and how the show was problematic now… the final season isn't available on my country's netflix yet but from what i read it sounds pretty bad.

I wasn't definitely including agents in my original post. I really can't emphasize enough that this is like, idk, one women getting a high-profile job at a company and everyone being like WOW THE SJW CRAZIES ARE TAKING OVER!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is incredibly easy, still, to be the straightest whitest dude and get an agent/book deal/etc if they want one. Do not underestimate how much a scene can be 99% the same old shit, even when there's a new coat of "yay queer poc girls blah blah!!!!" paint. YA does not have many straight white men because they don't give a shit about writing YA and boys of that age don't read. When one of them does deign to write a YA book, we all lose our minds over it and give him a crown. Yeah, there are like – idk, maybe two or three agents who are especially loud on twitter who genuinely aren't interested in taking them on at all. But I promise you they aren't turning any rando dudes away, because they have basically 0 interest in this sector.

Ugh, I don't mean to jump down your throat on this anon – I'm really just dumping my feelings about a much wider issue here. But if you only knew how often the allegedly ultra-progressive white-dude-hating publishing industry tears itself to pieces over "why aren't boys reading :( it must be women's fault somehow." Even the YA twitter pileons….they suck, they take a real toll, they lead to shit like every Becky Albertalli having to be like "oh i'm bi too!!!" but at base, they really are just another thing women have to deal w/ in this industry, which people think is so totally beyond this shit because, idk, The Hate U Give became a movie and some agent said something sassy about a man once. It's not.

Based posts nonny. I'm more surprised to learn that men are crying about YA section not having enough male writers than the fact that there simply aren't any attempting to enter the field because, like you twice repeated, boys of this certain age don't read books. Who would they be writing for?

When I saw this gif and your post I first thought the supposed terf was being ironic and making fun of how troons think tits make a woman but apparently it's supposed to be serious. I'll never watch this goddamn show.

No. 189610

I have seen people talking about agents looking for books written by authors whose identity matches their characters or being pressured to include more ~gay rep~, so I was genuinely curious about how common it was hence my question. So it's only some agents and publishers are still just after what can make them the most buck? I never doubted that white men were not really excluded, just how much the ownvoices thing is a real industry standard or wishful thinking on twitter.

And while I agree that M/M romance written by women, YA or not, is harmless on the whole–ironically I think that the asian classifications of it in a separate category as BL or danmei or whatever actually make the most sense, through outside of that, those genres are generally a garbage fire with their rigid, outdated heterosexual dynamics–I'm sympathetic with the issue of authenticity and visibility for real LGBT authors because mathematically, what we call fujos will outnumber them and get better sales because being from the same demographic that their readership, they just can cater better to their wishes and fantasies, fantasies that have nothing with the real lives of gay men (or even women if the author is straight), for whom writing authentically about their lives can put them at a disadvantage. For the record I also feel the same about men writing yuri, though it doesn't seem to be a viable market in the West. And then there is also the question of prizes, mirroring how I feel about MTF being listed for woman's literature prize, ie they should GTFO.

Authenticity, though, is really at the heart of it, not because women writing M/M romance is in some way noxious but because presenting it as a realistic, representative depiction of reality, even a political act, is. I may be amplifying a minor tendency because I was a friendless autist who learnt about the world mainly through books, but there clearly exist FtM/Enbies who just know they are gay and men because they desire men in a gay way, which they know because they read yaois and generally confused women who think they are queer because they identify sooo much with gay romances written by women for women or people in my generation who were all about how dirty hetero love was and how the gays had true pure love, so that framing does seem to have an influence, however marginal, on the real world.
Besides it's extremely irritating when writers go on about how writing what turn them on is actually a selfless act of representation of oppressed LGBTs, just because that's grandstanding bullshit, to say nothing about writers and fans alike who think it's a get out of jail card from any kind of criticism against their themes. Also because them pretending they are all about representation detract from the real interesting conversations we could be having about what women written M/M romance tells about desires, fears and societal pressures in female sexuality because outside of anon boards, recognizing that those fanfic-influenced gay romances are mostly about female sexuality would get you crucified and cancelled.
So my issue is not with what they write but how they present it, and I don't think people like Albertalli are just a victim here. She wasn't even cancelled afaik or seem to have lost any commercial opportunities since her book got a series and a movie, but when faced with criticisms, which in the worldview she defends and stands for are totally justified, instead of rolling her eyes and pulling back from twitter, reanalyze her beliefs or even following though with them and stepping back to gave space to gay voices, she doubled down and hypocritically decided to make up a stupid lie to preserve her standing and her vision of herself. I understand that there are market pressures and you can't always argue back, but she just acted hypocritically.

And my second issue is not that people should stop writing whatever but represent authentically their amount of experience with their topic whatever it is, just in the same way that I would be pissed if I bought a hard science fiction book on the premise of the author being a rocket scientist when in truth, he was a gardener, not because we should stop gardeners from writing hard scifi books, but because they should be given different levels of trust and escapism vs learning something attitude, and double that when someone's identity is used as a marketing tactic by the publisher. (I posted the original screenshot precisely because the author also write lesbian stuff now and when I know that women writing M/M are doing it out of their ass, I have no such information about women writing lesbian fiction. The derailing in another tread that gave birth to this one was actually about the 100% straight Tamsyn Muir who was praised as a lesbian author when she isn't. I felt lied to learning that.)

The sad truth is I recognize that this line of thinking is reductive since the really talented authors, hetero or gay, can write convincing, deeply human characters no matter their sexuality, but the jobbing hacks have a limited imagination and need all the help from ~lived experience~ they can get.

My condolences though for what you're going through at work, I stopped participating in a semi-woke fandom because I couldn't take it anymore, I can't imagine having to put up with that on the clock.

No. 189625

NTA but I do absolutely agree that pretending like it's accurate representation of gay people is taking away from legitimately discussing how the needs and desires of a female are reflected in them writing M/M fiction, but it's come to that due to not the authors pretending to be gay to sell more books but the current political atmosphere of people taking themes at face value instead of recognizing nuance and subtext and demanding absolute authenticity with no room for filling in the blanks, so those are the rules they have to go by. I'd say that instead of them influencing real world, the creators were the ones being influenced by the real world to an extent it limited their creativity and forced them to assume a false identity in order to explore the ideas they found interesting. I.e. instead of a YA writer faking being a lesbian brainwashing a ton of young girls into trooning out with her gay novels it was them who pressured her into faking a sexuality.

However I disagree with the remark that the setting of two opposites attracting because them interacting can create interesting scenarios and they complete each other is "regressive heteronormative dynamics", especially when it's rarely as polarized as people assume it is. It has the same energy as saying that butch/femme couples are based on "heterosexual dynamics" which I highly resent.

No. 189628

I legit hate how ownvoices has permeated into the current zeitgeist with books. I can only speak for myself and the few other aspiring writers who I've seen say this, but it really feels like it limits creativity and reduces the author to just a label like "Black" "Latino" "Queer" "Disabled" etc. And not only that, there seems to be this expectation that they is all they should talk about. You're a black woman who likes scifi and want to write about a galaxy far far away? No. You need to write why grandma being sent to the back of the bus has transcended into your DNA and caused generational trauma and made you the woman you are today. You're a gay Indian and love Tolien-esque stories? Quit chasing waterfalls and write how it's like to be a cocksucking Dalit in the slums of Mumbai and live in America now.

I hate how this has become the expectation.

No. 189630

i feel this way too when i look at books. they're no longer marketed for what they are, but for what buzzwords they tick off. i don't care if something is a black jewish kweer trans disabled generational trauma story. i just want a compelling story to read and not something that forces me to analyze every aspect of my existence because it's so problematic that i don't have a disability and i'm not mentally ill enough to think i'm trans. not to mention that many good books are buried under labels of being (for example) so incredibly kweer, when the kweerness is only a minor fraction of what the story is actually about.

100% agree. I can be frustrated with "ownvoices" marketing too, and yeah, a lot of it ends up being what this thread is about, but 1. I absolutely cannot forget what it felt like to read serious literature by women for the first time, in contrast to men, and 2. we're fools if we pretend the creator's background has nothing to do with anything. I don't think only x people can write x stories, but Christ, lesbian fiction is a great example – men fuck that up almost every time. The difference between Fingersmith and The Handmaiden is stark. The box-ticking is irritating, sure, but I can't pretend that I don't feel more comfortable taking a chance on certain books if I can tell at a glance that the author has skin in the game or not.

No. 192794

one of the main concerns about women erasing speech ("people who bleed" "person with uterus" etc) is that many immigrant women are not taught the words referring to their sexual organs in the woke language, so they usually only know words like "woman" or "girl". yet the wokies don't care about that and insist that such women should just educate themselves. as if immigrant women from oppressive countries where female sexual organs are not talked about at all have the time and energy to learn woke language.

No. 192795

Due to how languages work, if these women actually tried to educate themselves, they'll be bombarded with inaccurate information, shitty propaganda, etc. And to even think about doing research on such a basic topic you'd have to suspect that there are people who refuse to define what women and girls are to begin with and normie women from all over the world don't even know that Americans are getting more and more obsessed with gender shit. Like, in many places if you ask the average locals what gender is they'll tell you about grammatical gender first.

I'm actually not a GBF fan and there doesn't seem to be an official confirmation that the guy is a troon instead of an okama type character but the localization seems to be trying really hard to make it look like he's a transwoman whose gender identity is just never explicitly talked about (keeping it vague for the western audience).

Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't the author female (according to Baka-Updates at least) and the manga published in a shoujo magazine? The art style is very typical of shoujo too.
I agree that the guy looks exactly like a girl, though. Picrel is from an interview with the author. https://www.pixivision.net/en/a/6692
I'm still not sure if the author's a male or a woman but looking at her(?) pixiv gives me the impression that she's one of those female artists who draws mostly female characters.

No. 221033

I don't have screenshots because I'm on my phone but I looked it up and the translator is a tranny. A female translator defended his choice by saying he made a shit ton of research by asking completely unrelated American transbians their opinions on the manga.

Yes it's very common, video game companies often base European translations on American localizations to cut costs. I remember making a short list of localization bs in Japanese video games in the new video game thread, but I bet I could complete that. I'll post more about it at home in a few hours. But for now, just keep this in mind: if you ever see these translators online whining because people complain that they're incompetent and they justify rewriting lines, scenes or even entire characters and stories by saying "literal translations are impossible", then they ARE incompetent because people don't ask for word by word translation (which they call literal translation because they're retards), people ask for the stories and characters to be portrayed in the target language the way they are in the orginial language.

No. 221124

No they do it because they truly believe this is the correct way of doing this. Whenever they talk about translation theory, transposition or whatever they sound like they skipped almost all their Japanese classes in uni and paid the uni to give them their degree. You'd never see anything this retarded in technical translation because companies hire actually competent translators who take their jobs seriously instead of inserting shitty memes in technical or legal documents. I doubt novels get the same treatment as often as vidya and anime nearly as often too because publishing houses take that shit seriously. When localizers don't even know the true purpose of localization and can't make a good localization you know they're retarded.

I'm thinking about shit like FE Fates rewriting its main characters, especially Xander, to the point the story went from a normal, coherent family drama with fairy tale and Buddhist story (especially the spider string) elements taking place in countries inspired by several irl silk road countries to an incoherent family drama with no stakes, schizophrenic characters, outdated memes and as many references to Asia and Buddhism as possible removed. And what happened? Nintendo of Japan made sure the localizers got fired and replaced because of how bad it was. However, we still have crazy shit like Xenoblade 2's localization which is full of nonsense like the name changes (the humans have western names, the blades have japanese names in the original script), the stupid accents (meant to replace the fact that the original names were meant to easily distinguish humans and blades), the terrible dub (there's a japanese voice acting patch though) the Christianity references were removed or made ambiguous because the localizers thought it would offend American parents like in the 90s, etc. To stay on topic, the FE Fates localization removed a bunch of lines for the bisexual characters when you want to get their gay S supports, but tried very hard to make a straight character a kawaii uguu lesbian and it backfired hard because they couldn't change ALL her dialogs so instead of just being annoying with female characters she comes accross as a legit predator.

No. 221125

It's honestly funny cause the only ones they're fucking over is themselves. They just put a massive 'don't hire me' sign over their heads and weeb companies are always quick to cut costs it's why there's so many of them.

No. 221174

>You'd never see anything this retarded in technical translation because companies hire actually competent translators who take their jobs seriously instead of inserting shitty memes in technical or legal documents.
That's because technical and legal texts are completely different from creative works and obviously must be as clear and literal as possible, using very specific language. Meanwhile creative works allow for some creative freedom as long as you convey the same thing in roughly the same way the original did. But obviously inserting zoomer memes in the script where no such thing existed in the original is retarded, as is rewriting entire characters to make the story more "progressive".
And this is more suitable for the localization/dub thread but I hate how weebs whine so much about English dubs (the voices and performances, not the translation), their shittiness is blown out of proportion. Another thing I notice a lot is that many weeb retards complain about English subs not having the exact same structure that the original Japanese sentences, or complaining that a translator chose to use an equivalent term or phrase in English instead of the exact Japanese word untranslated, maybe because they're so used to reading crap fan translations with unnatural sounding English and awkwardly phrased sentences; if they complain so much about such a basic translation principle, they should learn Japanese so they don't have to deal with it. Furthermore, if the target audience are more normie anime watchers who aren't as familiar with Japanese culture/humor/language, they're not going get every dumb Japanese joke or random Japanese cultural reference, meaning that the experience won't be the same as the original audience had, so in that case the translators have two options: either localize that and use an equivalent English dumb joke/reference that most of the target audience will get immediately, or leave it as it is and include a translator's note explaining the original line, which will most likely break immersion. This is a thing that happens all the time in professional translation because most people who read translations aren't that knowledgeable about the original target audience's culture (and aren't obligated to be, as they're just reading/watching for entertainment), but you don't see people complaining about it happening with any other language but Japanese (ok, maybe sometimes, but not nearly to the same extent). Even people who aren't the target audience for anime/manga translations because they know Japanese already complain about these basic things because to them, glorious nippon language is sacred and shouldn't be touched at all.
So it's not just SJW translators who are idiots for messing with the actual meaning of sentences, changing names for no reason and rewriting entire plots, it's also the weebs who keep getting into dumb internet fights with them and attacking them for literally anything (even correct localization practices).

No. 221253

This is exactly how I feel, I think the meme/woke translations are obviously awful but I find a lot of weebs have this idea that literally any localization is bad when all professional translations include a degree of localization. I'm not 100% fluent in Japanese or anything but I know enough to have done some fan translations, and I definitely noticed what you described with myself - my early translations sounded terrible and unnatural because I was worried that if I deviated too much from the original sentence then I would be doing it wrong and people would get mad. But as I got more experience and paid attention to how actual professional translators worked, my mindset shifted towards ensuring that I understood the underlying meaning of the sentence and then would allow myself more flexibility in finding an equivalent in English that retained the meaning but also sounded natural (which is something that should be really obvious but it was hard for me to put it into practice because of the weird mindset surrounding Japanese translation). So now those blanket 'localization bad' statements annoy me, especially because I tend to see it from people who wouldn't even be able to read the work in Japanese anyway and just want something to complain about.

No. 221523

What you said is reasonable but some games get really awful localizations. What you described fits games like Pokemon and Ace Attorney where the characters are the same no matter the language, where names are translated because they're puns, where the cultural references used for jokes are replaced with equivalents that make sense (a movie reference replaced by another movie reference for example). Games like Skies of Arcadia or Fire Emblem Fates don't fit that description though: there was an interview about the first one with the localizer saying he just noted the important story bits, rewrote everything in ways that made sense to him and only him, and he removed obvious implications about a male character being attracted to his male boss because it was "creepy" and nonsensical from HIS point of view. I'm still on mobile so I don't have screenshots. Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is in-between because the name changes and English accents sort of make sense for English speakers, but make no sense whatsoevee for people who don't speak English. If I told my siblings to play it in English because that's the default language for the PAL version, they wouldn't even notice that the humans and blades have different accents to distinguish them (which the original names already did) because they don't know English enough to distinguish British accents, American accents, Welsh or Scottish accents, etc. You're right we should take this to the localization thread, this is getting slowly getting more and more off-topic.

No. 221555

>I hate how weebs whine so much about English dubs (the voices and performances, not the translation), their shittiness is blown out of proportion.
No it's not, American dubs have a very, very distinct performance style that everyone outside of the US absolutely hates. As an ESLfag I have not met a single other ESL person who actually prefers the American dub to the original Japanese unless it's a normie that gets triggered hearing a language they don't recognize, hell, even my native dubs sound better than the American ones due to the fact that the performance isn't usually based on over the top cartoonish enunciation and intonation more fitting overused American tropes than the original Japanese characters. But what really makes it worse is the D-list internet celebrities being picked to perform the voices instead of actual experienced voice actors like in the original Japanese version, and the e-celebs are the ones often shoehorning in their retarded wokeshit like this >>220954 because the entire scene is built on nepotism.

Very specific problem but I hate the fuck out how transformer fans or robot fans in general even tend to draw half of the cast like women and write them like girls.

Finding a popular series or franchise that mainly consists of adult male characters that act like adult men and have some good chemistries is so damn rare and hard to find and these people have to turn it into pseudo-het shit or headcanon everybody they are into as trans for no fucking reason.

For fuck's sake, modern media is flooded with girly stuff, pick up one of these billion series to project. I don't get why anybody would even get into a series about dudes fighting a war and committing and suffering from war crimes and then think "now THIS is something I would enjoy- if everybody was trans, feminine and drinking coffee together and if there was no war and no men that act and look like men". I never understood the logic behind that approach or why these people are even there.
And yeah as the other anon has said, even if a character could be headcanoned as trans (as in, if there was actual canon content backing that) I absolutely do not want to read some gender exploration, I want to read about the characters I like fucking each other or at least going through an adventure together or just do some funny shit because I love the series and want to see more of it.

I had the feeling that this shit would happen, specially when the writers started wokefying the characters by turning Elita-1 into a tranny.
I mean, they're giant robots in a whole ass war that destroyed their civilization to the point in which there weren't many things or people to even talk about. And they somehow give a fuck about tranny shit? It's seriously retarded.
Hell, I didn't care when people started writing fanfics with them having magical ass vaginas, because they're aliens and whatever, but when they started spouting their backwards mentality I had to step back from the fandom because it was getting extremely retarded. The wokes, again, ruined a great story with lots of interesting ideas because they want to be oppressed.
All I wanted was to read about hot sexy giant transforming robots grappling with each other and grunting like in a Turkish oil wrestling fashion before they had copious amounts of techno sex that didn't require dicks and magical ass vaginas, is that too much to ask? I hate the retarded BDSM fanfics and fanart, I hate the retarded Mpreg shit, I hate the they/them pronouns and I absolutely hate how the comic writers decided to do whatever the fuck they wanted by adding tranny shit into the official comic.
I really hope that when this shit stops being fashionable that the idiot who said "let's turn Elita-1 into a tranny" hides under a rock and never comes out of it because of the extremely burdensome shame he/she/whatever will feel.

They're in a a false timeline where bad things are even worse. I don't think it really matters because the run by this writer just comes off like it's ripping off trendy social media politics.

Ah yes, I completely forgot about the mpreg and forced in children OC that is getting more common with every day. Again I do not understand why anybody would want homo stuff only to turn it into borderline het. And the TF universe in particular has so fucking many characters and roles and potential, it's like a giant sandbox and the majority of fans ignore all of this to trans-ify the same five characters and write a dime novel with family twist of this.

Not just TF related, but I noticed that the fan content I love is almost always made by Chinese fans, Russians, Japanese and to some degree Koreans. There are of course exceptions, but it's very obvious that most of the bullshit head-canoning, OC forcing and feminizations come from western fans, whereas the rest gets inspired by the canon content and makes some epic drawings out of it. It's the same with manga and such. The cool art is always coming from Asia or Russia, the tumblr-forced shit is western. Makes me often wonder if western fans are even reading the manga/comics they are fan of.

This post might be a bit weird because I am complaining about woke shit while kinda sounding woke myself maybe, but I hate that thanks to woke media and the fear of being whatever-phobic people aren't writing any cool gay or autistic-coded villains anymore. It sucks ass.

Antagonists are almost always the better characters anyway and with mental issues or disorders like autism or schizoid personality disorders and the likes there is a reason for why it's rather the non-social antags or side characters and not any of the mains that have the respective traits and it's also the reason for why real people that have these issues always related to said antagonists and not the heroes.

If you are autistic or something you simply cannot be the beloved social guy woke series write you as. But modern media always writes them as the endearing nerdy guys that might have some quirks but are eventually loved and accepted by everybody and loving everybody. This isn't how it works irl and it cements the assumption that everybody that isn't social must be evil by choice, since mental issues are these funny fluffy things from woke media. Most people with this are alienated by the majority and hated or hate the behavior of others. It's why anti-social villains were always beloved by asocials and weirdos.

Now writers try their best to not even give us this and they don't notice how they are killing all individuality off by making everybody a woobified oddball. Writing a good gay or black or autistic villain isn't homophobia or racism or whatever, but turning every gay or black or autistic character into the same boring voice-of-reason stereotype is actually more suspicious and surely way more boring.

Yeah it's getting more and more prominent. Japanese games had their gay characters censored before because "it's not marketable, it's disgusting, it's creepy, it makes no sense that this male character would be this devoted to this other male character", now they're censored or changed because "they're not perfect cinnamon rolls and are too problematic (aka, they're well-written and three dimensional characters), they're too GNC so they must be the opposite gender". It's bullshit. Pic related, one of the localizers is talking about a gay character by saying "it's a little creepy". With western games, series, cartoons, etc. they're doing this directly in the script so the issue is different.

Well the comics aren't selling that well because the writers either antagonize the main buyers or just flat out do not write good stories. Also it's really hard to get into comics in the first place "oh where do I start?? There are 10 different Batman #1s???" so I don't blame anyone for not getting into it.

It's been very weird to see unfold over the past few years. I think the fans that are more likely to buy comics will just consoom anything even if they're going to through a fit about it over on /co/ and talk about #comicgate. I highly doubt the hyper woke fans DC and Marvel are trying to appeal to actually care that much about the comics, I honestly don't get the impression that they even read comics in the first place since everything they say is just tumblr's weird interpretation of the comics.

I'm in a fandom that's strange: the game itself is very popular and actually the highest grossing game in that franchise, but the fandom for characters in it are relatively niche. I won't say what it is because of that fact, but some of you might be able to guess from the few clues alone.

Anyway, there's an androgynous character who, depending on the translation, is a they/them (in the original) or female (in other languages). The original design was intended to be left up to the viewer. You could argue that they're not the current QT+ "enby" but the classic androgynous trope. I don't mind this because that kind of androgyny isn't anything new and actually plays well against their foil who is a hyper macho dude who wouldn't look out of place in a gay bathhouse. He's actually popular with bara artists.

However, I find it weird that the series has one canon character that can cater to the troons/enbies (and isn't cringe because it's 0.0001% of their personality), but the fandom still insists on trying to trans every other character to the point of being almost invasive about it. No one can simply be a tomboy or a pretty boy. They all have to fit into the gender trender box to the fandom. I've seen where people will list out their headcanons of what kind of trans every character insistently is, and keep the androgynous character an enby. If you wrote the enby as male or female, you'd get met with as much hostility as you would when the scrotes flip out and insist the enby is female (which is honestly a fun troll tactic).

This is one of those things that wouldn't bother me if that part of the fandom were more watered down, but it dominates the little space we have. There's already a hostility towards heterosexual ships since they get auto-deemed as toxic for being het. Not that I can blame them; het in fiction has a horrible reputation, but it doesn't have to be that way in fandom and the series handles strong female characters very well. If anything, the men in the series usually exist to prop up the women's stories.

It's all so tiring.

In Leo's case, it doesn't matter if Harada changed her "gender" to "neutral", all that means is that she prefers to not look one way or the other even though she clearly prefers looking masculine since not even in her customization items do you ever see her wearing a dress or skirt.

I'm black and also love The Little Mermaid, and honestly I don't see what the big deal with this casting is. Ariel's race isn't at all important to her story considering she's not even human. Yeah some shows do the diversity thing for media buzz and controversy, but I think the problem with this particular movie is people seeing a black woman playing her and automatically assuming she had to be cast because she's black, rather than considering that maybe she got cast because she's a great singer and looks fish-like don't know how to say that without sounding insulting. I genuinely think she's pretty though. I actually saw some anons say they didn't even watch the trailer, so I don't think they even thought about that at all. Ariel being light/white in the original doesn't really matter because it's ok to change things when you're making a remake. The animated film is nothing like the original story. It's also not as if this is the first time a black woman has played a princess. I basically don't really believe this is diversity casting though.
>casting choices genuinely make an important impact on sense of self
I do think there are young black girls who would enjoy this movie and seeing Halle in this role.
>does it feel more like, surface level attempt to address actual problems facing the black community.
I don't feel like every movie with a black character needs to address problems in the black community. I actually think there should be less of that and more fun, lighthearted movies with black characters.

Also because I've seen the "why not just make a brand new movie with a black princess" thing around, it seems like Disney is already doing that. Picrel was from the same event they released the The Little Mermaid trailer at. If they will make the princess the same race as the voice actress then it seems like she will be black or a black latina. Anyway, sorry if this didn't really answer your question. I haven't really been posting about this and I just kind of put all my thoughts here.

Don't see the problem with it. Halle is pretty and one of the only pop girls today with a beautiful voice and some real talent, she's a nice fit for the role.

No, that shouldn't be their jobs. You're expecting too much from people who said in the same interviews that they changed NPC names to names of their own personal friends because "it's funny xD", and if I want to experience a story I'd rather see the original thing properly translated even if it's disturbing or uncomfortable than some random amerifat's fanfiction. Sometimes, changing something small and a little disturbing like that in a story can completely change the characters and the story as a whole. Localizer for FE Fates ruined a lot of the story just because they thought Xander obeying his father and killing people as part of his job as a result was problematic and not heroic enough. They made him so OOC that the entire story makes little sense if you don't play it in English. Just by removing and adding a few lines.

And when I keep seeing perfectly normal, vanilla gay relationships or even just implications being changed or removed with the exact same reasoning on a semi regular basis I don't give anyone the benefit of doubt. You also should keep in mind that many American localizers have no reading comprehension whatsoever despite "speaking" several languages so they sometimes think they should be allowed to change offensive dialogs that only offend them and nobody else. I saw one posting online about how she likes to removes lines in scene where young Japanese women joke baout not being able to get married anymore because of some comedic misunderstanding, despite girls all over the world joking exactly like this. She finds this sort of lines extremely sexist.

NTA but Ariel is a mermaid and mermaids are a fantasy race, of course it doesn't matter in that case; in the movie that anon posted it matters because it's set in a specific culture or the culture is based on a real-life one. Unless you adapted the story for a different culture.

No. 239078

well to be honest as soon as she stops being a mermaid and is made into a human living in the castle of prince Eric, it kind of culturally matters again. Ariel and Ursula both turn into white women (and depending on the time period it would have been pretty much impossible for a white prince to marry a POC. I mean if I remember it correctly they even needed to point out in the kids movie that when they found Ariel that she is a noble, which makes it possible for her to stay in the castle and for her to go out on dates/marry a prince, so it seems to be based on the real world history). Also, turning her into a black character and having her do these Ariel scenes (where she is too "uncultured" to use a fork etc.) is not the best idea considering either racists or the woke will somehow make an argument out of it that she (a POC) is portraited in the movie like an animal, who needs to learn how to be "civilised". Idk, it just does not seem to be the best idea to do it. I actually don't get why they did not film the princess and the frog first because then you would have a POC being the main role. Or even filming the animated series with the latin (?) princess first (idk, I am not keeping up with Disney anymore) or make an orginal story. Ariel will probably not do that well in Asia and will turn barley any new people in because most people would have watched it anyway (rather it will turn some people off that she does not look like the animation. Like I remember the hate Shadowhunter got because Clary's hair was not a dark red and showed her "only" as a ginger kek. Most people are obsessed with something being portrait 100% like the original). Most people turn in for the story and how it compares to the movies (like look at how Mulan flopped, even in Asia because it was not good and most people rather want the live action movied to be very similar to the movie they watched as a child. It only worked well for them if the movie is close to the original in terms of story line and looks like the beauty and the beast or if the main person changes and through this the POV and whole story changes a lot like in Maleficent). I would have not watched the movie anyway because I am not going to watch the same movie with the story line twice just because it has real people in it and I honestly don't care that much for Disney. But I would have probably been up to watch an orginal myth (folklore) etc. from Africa because they rarely get teached about and it is not as overtold as Ariel is (btw, sorry but I think the tail looks really ugly in the trailer, I would have expected a better quality one)

I watched the trailer and it seems fine? She's pretty, what little singing we hear is good. I didn't see any other character so I looked up the IMDB and Eric is white. So is her dad, King Triton. But her mother is black so that makes sense. I don't know race relations in Denmark in the…1800s? But why is it as important in a kids movie about a mythical creature learning a moral that's universal (don't be too hasty to be a rebellious teen that you give up something really important along the way)? It's not a historically accurate piece set in a specific location and time in the "real world Denmark".

it just feels like this woke version of tokenization in films and tv, like changing a characters skintone matters more than anything about the actual character.

I wonder if there's a term for it, like how a lot of Whatever-Americans may have shared ethnicity but not nationality or culturally for other countries but still act as though they have a position of authority on the topic and then lose it when someone with a different ethnicity was raised in that culture.

Like black irish people or white african people being complained about by irish americans or african americans.

Like some sort of American cultural imperialism with everything shifted through an american lense and american sensibility and world views and cultural views.

I don't want to see a fantasy series inspired by a specific European country and it's own culture reduced to 'white people country make americans uncomfy add some black people but don't add hispanics, latinos, native americans or god forbid the countries own actual ethnicity ' yay diversity.

It's all so ultimately hollow, like okay we've used up this IP make it with a ethnic person for some goodboy points.

then it all just gets reduced to a dumbed down ' just say you hate x people ' 'the skintone doesnt matter' ' no one said x couldnt be y'

it's just so American white centric that they project their own worldview as being the true one and they are correcting not changing (but we won't make african based stories because our american audience won't actually watch it hehe).

I am honestly offended when someone acts as if a Russian, an Italian, a Scott and a Bosnian person are all the same "race" and basically same country because these people wouldn't be able to tell them apart from each other anyway. At the same time though they will get mad if you consider some US states the same because they swear they all have vastly different cultures.

The real reason red heads were used so much in media is because Britain/America used to be really racist against the Irish who they stereotyped as red heads.

This is a retarded take. Reminds me of the way people try to deflect criticism of series like Game of Thrones. "It's a fantasy series with [insert fantasy creatures], so what does it matter if it's a faithful adaptation/was made with passion/is well-plotted/has consistent characterisation etc".

Saying that genre media isn't beholden to standards of quality is just an insult. Genre fiction isn't a lower-tier art form. We expect adaptations of genre fiction to be faithful.

I ask why the character's race was changed? If it doesn't matter, then why change it? Personally I think there is a mandate at Disney to eliminate as many white roles as possible, because white people are bad and we can't see too many of them at once.

I consider this racism, so I won't watch the film.

Another example: that recent Resident Evil adaptation on Netflix (cancelled, predictably). They turned Albert Wesker black. Can't see any reason to do this except for the creators hate white people, and of course they tried to cloak criticism as, "well it's a sci-fi zombie show, what does it matter?" Yeah, nah. Didn't work, won't work now.

Why do characters need to be race-swapped? If Ariel was white in the original story, why change it now? Seems to me this was done because of anti-white sentiment. Given the amount of negativity as a result of this, clearly the race of a character does matter, as does giving people faithful and respectful adaptations. No amount of 'oh, but who cares, it's just a mermaid' can remove the ugly root cause of the casting.

No. 242097

They're "overrepresented" because red hair is distinctive and usually good visual shorthand for connoting heroic/attractive. Lots and lots of European/Celtic myths have redhead heroes (probably why Ariel herself was a redhead).

On the other hand though, I suppose your perspective tracks with the anti-woke sentiment here. Gay + Trans people are also way overrepresented too relative to their population size. We should eliminate their roles in media and give them to straight people. I also think black people may be overrepresented in western media too - you know what to do.

Because in that case the source was not important, it was not a childhood classic with international fame known by nearly every person on earth.
The issue is not even that they're not following the source, it's that they'r making unnecessary and unwanted changes to a movie whose whole selling point is nostalgia shit. I'm also not American so I don't give a fuck about your "black representation". If I'm watching an adaptation of a nostalgic film, I would want it to be like the original.

someone mentioned this in another thread, but the 2019 version of black charismas, first off it has nothing to do with the original Black Christmas, its like a 2016 tumblr fan-fiction, I've seen some dumb slasher films but this was not only idiotic but completely misguided and makes me want to tear my hair out, In this film we get a bunch of fraternity douche bags dressing up in Eyes Wide Shut masks to terrorize a bunch of college girls by using the supernatural power of the statue of a dead straight white man(I'm not making this up) in what I'm assuming was an attempt at making a woman empowerment slasher film, The writing was shoddy and the production was rushed. Kris(the mixed black girl) was by far one of the most unlikeable characters I’ve seen in film in a long time, which is especially bad because she wasn’t supposed to be. She came off as insensitive and seemed to view Riley as a prop she could use to make her point. The political/social justice tropes were intentionally in your face, obvious, and got annoying really fast, also if you want to have powerful woman in your film, make them powerful! Don’t spend 3/4 of the movie with your female characters being completely vulnerable and incapable of defending themselves, just to turn around and suddenly have a “girl boss” moment at the last second

side note what is it with with liberal white women writing black female characters as hyper woke super activists who are constantly ready to pick a fight with white straight white men, this is the third time I have seen this

but it's like, is the west so creatively bankrupt they cannot make media for poc without injecting them into time periods and settings where they absolutely did not exist?
it's just disrespectful to history, leading to misrepresentation of these periods. most audiences will take these representations at face value and genuinely believe they are true. –same with the new Marilyn Monroe movie on Netflix, or The Crown.

I'd say it's even insulting for the minorities "represented" as if they don't have their own stories to tell, and you know in these cases it's only Black people taking these roles. In another thread iirc a British anon said the biggest minority in the UK are Indians/Pakistanis yet they're way less present in the media. Here in France we had a movie called Intouchable that's based on a real story about a North African caretaker and a White disabled guy and how they befriended each other and guess who took the role of the caretaker in that movie? Omar Sy. Because being Black is more marketable than being North African here, thanks for the erasure I suppose…

No, you are the dense one. Read that comment again and what it is responding to. Original comment said, "everyone upset about the race-bending doesn't get that it has Carribean music in it!" To which the response is - well so what? The character of Ariel as presented in the animated movie was white. The music doesn't change this.

Why is Ariel black in this adaptation? No one can give a straight answer to the question. Just admit it, they changed her race because you're not allowed to have an all-white cast anymore because white people = bad.

If this was an original movie with a new character, I wouldn't care. There was a black mermaid in the TV show. Make a movie about her, why not? I'm not bothered by black people, only anti-white sentiment which is what I believe is at root of this casting choice.

No. 245376

Maybe you've convinced me, but at the same time I would bet money that your sentiment does not extend to stuff like Gods of Egypt, which got reamed from all corners for having white actors. But was clearly a fantasy/sci-fi setting with no relation to the actual country, to the point that the world is shown as being a flat disc.

If Bridgerton, an anachronistic hodge-podge of European culture/costumes/motifs, can have a multi-ethnic cast, then productions like Gods of Egypt should also be okay since that is also about aesthetics rather than serious mythological depiction.

>you're not allowed to have an all-white cast anymore because white people = bad.
We all know that they're casting black actors because it's what's hip and trendy with young people these days, and also to seem woke and progressive to have a favorable public image, and not just because the actress is a good singer. They're marketing their products to a woke audience, there's no "anti-white" agenda behind it, just a "pro-profits" one. But your endless (literally - it's been more than three weeks) sperging about this and the specific wording you use (such as "you're not allowed to have an all-white cast anymore!") makes you sound less like you're just pointing that out, and more like you're a racist autist seething because seeing non-white people in the media you consume makes you genuinely upset. Shut the fuck up already you retard. It's the usual thing they do, but for some fucking reason you decided to fixate on this specific casting choice that isn't even that objectionable - as opposed to, say, a historical figure that existed in real life, like >>244816, in this case it's just a mermaid, whose culture and species is obviously not the same as that of the humans featured in the story, meaning mermaids don't necessarily have to be "white" like humans are, nor are they "Danish" like humans, so being hers a fantasy species grants artistic license regarding the skin color of this character. Yes, we all hate it when Disney live action remakes change designs for no justifiable reason, but a fucking mermaid changed from pale to dark-skinned isn't the end of the world. In fact, that's probably why they decided to cast a black actress as Ariel and not as some human princess that was white originally.

I don’t buy that Halle Bailey was cast because ‘the director loved her singing’, because her singing fucking sucks. She doesn’t make any effort to connect with Ariel as a character and is just singing the song as herself, and as such her performance is very bland and forgettable as a result. If we didn’t already have the perfect (english) voice for Ariel she could maybe get away with it, but as it stands she is a pale imitation of the original.
One saving grace of this movie however, is the chance to listen to the new foreign dubbed versions. Hopefully the dubbing actresses give a better performance than Halle does.

The most interesting part of all the racebending wankery is how it reveals people's subconscious racist biases in people on all sides, but even more hilariously hypocritically on the so-called "diversity" advocates'. Just look at all the so-called "inclusive" cases of racebending and you'll see patterns that say a lot about how these mostly white "anti-racists" actually see non-white people. An absolutely egregious case is the Vampire Diaries TV show, where the character Bonnie Bennett was abysmally written compared to her books counterpart, her characterization was diminished, the narrative gave her way more struggles and way less sympathy, she was reduced from a powerful developed character to a mere plot device sidekick. Oh, but she's black now! Yay diversity!
On the other hand let's not forget those people who were against making Ariel black but said they didn't mind if Ursula, who really was inspired by a literal real life white person who was actually a drag queen, was made black instead of Ariel. Hm.

Japanese adaptations of anything get absolutely slandered if they make big changes and don't follow the source, because you're essentially spitting in the fans' faces and thinking that your own ideas are better and should be pushed. This happens so much with American adaptations recently. If the source for the stupid little mermaid are the Disney movies, just follow that ffs. Otherwise no shit people are going to complain.

No. 249354

Tbf the Disney movies don't follow the source either, and the main demographic (kids) usually don't care about those kind of details.

No. 249427

Well yeah but the point of the original Disney movies is to not follow the source. They're not book to movie adaptations, they're kids movies inspired on some stories. This is not the case with these remakes. The remakes are supposed to be a live-action version of the Disney movies, they try to sell you the original story and characters, but go "look now it's in live action!". And their target audience is not just kids, but clearly also the adults who grew up with those Disney movies.
So yeah in here they're going to sell you a "live action version" yet change some important things and then get mad at you when you complain.

I haven't watched many of these shitty remakes but one I did look forward to was Dumbo and I particularly hated that one because they changed the whole story, yet sold it to me like a "live action version". Kys Disney.

What I don't understand about this is that they won't give me series where brown leads would make sense that I actually crave.

I would LOVE to see a series taking place in the Ottoman Empire of 1500, be it today's Turkey or Iraq, or some cool fucking shit about Arabic travelers, explorers and traders that actually factually existed.
Or hell, give my Babylonian shit. They have so much cool shit, cool kings, cool documented battles and a cool culture (they had a BEER GODDESS and priestesses as bar keepers! And Ea-Nasir the scammer!). They also legit mixed with other cultures, so you could even thematise multicultural phenomenons and religions that intermingled.

But NOOOOO, it's the same boring setting every second dime novel has but this time with MCs that are black for some reason.

To me this is only showing that they don't even care about what they pretend to care about. They don't want to research anything they literally just use generic stock stories that were done a thousand times but make the characters black because they think that would change things.
In the end it's the same as with shoved in lesbians and gay men, nobody that actually wants to see it or get some representation cares about these movies because they know it's nothing but a lazy marketing idea.

Babylon, 1750 BC.

Amneris, a priestess in service to Ninkasi, the beer goddess, is charged with delivering copper ingots to Ninkasi's new temple. On her way there, Amneris is waylaid by Black Coda, the infamous thief.

When Black Coda steals the copper, Amneris must team up with the charming con-artist Ea-Nasir on an adventure across the desert to get the copper back and ensure Ninkasi's continued patronage of Babylon!

I don't think BLM has had much influence on Hollywood casting, to be honest. Halle Bailey was set to play Ariel in The Little Mermaid in 2018 IIRC, plus she's also a talented singer who appeals to kids/zoomers. Also, I just Googled "most high paid actresses", and got a bunch of different answers. Charlize Theron was the first, and another result said it was Julia Roberts, and another mentioned Sandra Bullock. Scarlett Johannson also makes 56 million, more than Sofia Vergara's 43 million. In the first place, Vergara is a white-passing natural blonde, and even if you don't think she counts as "white", it really just seems like both she and Dwayne Johnson are exceptions in a large pool of very famous, well-paid, clearly white actors/actresses. It's kind of cherrypicking to use them IMO.

NTA, but I'm Indian and the truth is that my country produces a huge amount of films, I think more than Hollywood. Our film industry is one of the oldest, and becoming more internationally recognised. You can literally watch great action movies like War (go stream this) anytime, guess what, no white people. Same thing with musicals, people went on and on about LaLa Land, we've been doing that for years and better than Americans these days. I just dont get why white americans are expected to cater for everyone, when outside of america basically every country has its own film industry. Go, broaden your minds, watch films from around the globe. You are supporting other industries, too

No. 251382

I think it's because America is a racially diverse country with different history/social structure. It'd be kind of silly to apply the same logic for other countries to it when the circumstances are very different. I didn't say anything about "catering", I just think it's dumb that some people are throwing a hissy fit and thinking white people are being kicked out Hollywood because the actress for a cartoon princess isn't white. Hollywood is still extremely white lol, and people who aren't white also exist in America, so it tracks that their media would reflect that. If some people don't like it, they can just do as you described and stick to European cinema, I guess.

In their heads they are the only ones making good movies in this world so it's their sole responsibility to represent the rest of the planet when most of them cannot even find the countries they pretend to represent in their movie on a map.

Plus the characters that are in for the woke points are almost always terrible. I mean when they add black people on purpose, not talking about Will Smith as a MC. It's still Americans btw. we are supposed to see them as something special.
They don't write in Ethiopian characters or something, no, just black US citizen. It's still just US-centric no matter how much they try to come off as international, it seems to me like many woke US-Americans don't even have a concept of nations and ethnicities or cultures in the first place. It's all that stupid "race" shit that is just about two skin colors + "Asians".

I have a problem with it too because they make series for kids with characters who are kids and look even younger than they are but want to do good so they add representation. I appreciate it technically, I am just not a fan of any kind of romance and sexual identity related stuff with kid characters. And shippers will jump onto it to write nsfw fics for it like with all ships.

Why do we get so few adult gays, anyway? It's like how everybody is praising that gundam show for lesbians when they act and look like young school kids to me. And there is some arranged het marriage too. Maybe I am biased though, I can deal with it if they come off as older like in Utena. But I can't stand it when they are moe blobby kids that look like 11 and cartoons in particular make their characters look even younger than anime girls.

That said I am generally not a fan of flags. Can people please just be gay without screaming about being part of the gay community and wave their flags around? I love gays in fiction but I want them to be naturally gay. I know a lot of them and none of them use these flags or talk about the LGBT+ community.

There is no het community either right? Why can't gays have what hets have and just be gay without becoming a member of some special minority group?

It's annoying how localizers remove any instance of the word "woman", "girl" or "female". The only people I see complaining about this are scrotes whining about how they can't romance 12 year olds or can't roleplay their coomer lesbian fantasies.

I don't play new jrpgs so I have never encountered a game that removed any mentions of the word woman. It's really messed up wtf. Is the person in the tweet a professional translater and speaking from experience?
>localizers also rewrite instances of male characters talking down to female characters. Idk. What do nonnies think
as a translater you're job is to translate not to add your personal opinion. Even if I strongly dislike when male writers make their male characters sexist it should still be left in. Then if people have complains about it they should take it to the original writers not the translators. Male characters speaking down to women is also a bit more nuanced. Personally I don't mind when sexism exist in a fantasy setting(but I know several women who do and I understand why) as long as it's treated as a bad thing. The only instance I can think of where I thougt removing bigotry in a dub/localisation was a good idea was in Winx. There is a scene where a character calls herself ugly for having an afro which was changed in the US dub. Since it's a kids show and kids are stupid and repeat what they see on TV, and girls with afro textured hair will be hurt when they see it, it was for the better to remove it. Most jrpgs are targeted an older audience though so the publishers should trust that the player will not be influenced by the characters. That is to say I still think that writers should be called out for their sexism and racism(and women are 100% allowed to avoid games with too much sexism) but it shouldn't be removed from their work

No. 271567

I don't mind shows like Bridgerton having colorblind casting, as it's a stylized setting, with fictional characters in a world where black people could have held the same standing in aristocracy as white people.
But it doesn't sit right with me to change the race of a real woman, who actually lived and existed in history and met a tragic end. There's literally no reason to do that and I have no idea what the thought process was behind that, other than to stir up drama.

Why is that shit never ending with Fire Emblem? I've heard that it's nothing new and they tried to make Ike less gay and tried to force a romance between him and the green haired princess in the Gamecube game.

No. 271579

I don't think this means what you think it means. In Japanese games and anime it's not unusual to see male characters call female ones "woman". It's a way of addressing them in a unfriendly way, but not meant to be outright insulting. In the west however it's very different, if you call someone "woman" like the character is doing in the photo, it's perceived as VERY insulting and misogynistic. I think this is what he means. It's not meant to censor, it's just a cultural difference that needs to be changed in translation.

No. 271581

That's how it's meant to come across in that specific context. That character saw his female best friend get brutally murdered when they were very young, and got so traumatized he can't stand being close to women physically even just a little, and he's a brutally honest guy on top of that. So yeah, the blonde girl in that scene gets offended because it's meant to be offensive to her. And if Treehouse localized it now as opposed to 8-4 the entire character and his dialogs would have been rewritten.

Same, I'm embarrassed by people complaining about black Ariel because even though we all know it's just Disney being woke and virtue signaling it's still whatever. We have a ton of white interpretations of the Little Mermaid already. Might as well make a big budget black one too, if it helps some little black girls to feel seen for it then that's great. The "Africa has a ton of tales to tell too" is a valid take but these movies are directed towards PoC girls who grew up in an eurocentric culture surrounded by European tales, they're not African and they should feel at home in the country where they (and most likely their parents and grandparents) are born and raised in.

No. 285684

People are upset because it’s supposed to be a remake of the movie they watched as children. Radically changing the design of the main character of your movie thats only selling point is nostalgia-baiting isn’t smart. If this were an entirely new movie based on the tale of The Little Mermaid but with a black main character, instead of a remake of a specific film then it wouldn’t have created this much controversy. There have been movies with black Cinderellas, but they were well received because they weren’t just rehashes of the Disney version from the 1950s.

Disney didn’t change Ariels’ race out of some desire to give young black girls representation, they did it as a PR move, because they realised that there was very little buzz around Disney remakes as the novelty wore off a long time ago for most people. This was just the easiest way to drum up some attention for their latest movie, even if that attention is negative.

It is true that most people focus on the race-bending and ignore all the other flaws of the movie, (or at least what we can see from the trailers): the lacklustre environments, the dull colour scheme, the subpar singing, the fact that it’s going to be mostly CGI. A very unappealing looking movie all around.

Ultimately this movie is doomed to the same fate as all the other ‘live-action’ Disney re-makes: To make money and generate buzz in the short term, but to be completely and utterly forgotten in the long term. And no amount of pandering will change that.
Also I think it’s funny that people in this thread will get up in arms about every other kind of woke garbage, but race-bending is the one that you can’t ever criticise because ‘think of the poor children!!’

There is no ambiguity about Cleopatra whatsoever. She was Greek. Cleopatra isn't even an Egyptian names - it's Greek. Cleopatra was of the Ptolemaic dynasty, founded by the great general Ptolemy. He was one of Alexander the Great's generals who after Alexander's death, like all his great generals, fought over who will inherit his empire. Ptolemy ended up with Egypt, to his luck, because Egypt was the most organized and most functionally state-like entity across the sprawling empire. His dynasty endured for a long, long time. The Ptolemies did not interbreed with the native Egyptians, nor was this expected of them, and like all pharaonic dynasties they practiced incest. This was a religion requirement of the Egyptian native religion and was always inextricably interwoven with the position of Pharaoh.

To suggest that Cleopatra was anything but Greek is wrong. To suggest she was black is a complete fabrication, a lie, complete bullshit. There might have been a dash of Syrian blood in her due to an alleged affair with a Syrian in her family line, but that's all both debatable and now impossible to deny or verify. But the basic point stands - Netflix is shitting on real history and trying to peddle their fiction as actual history, and all of that is done purely for American domestic interests. It's vile.

The french dub still has Frankie as a girl thank god, and her "it's they for me, not he or she" verse in her song was rewritten into a clever joke about her life being in colors instead of black and white like the old Frankenstein movies

For those who wonder: there's enbie Frankie, (implied) tranny Deuce, and a fucking skeleton drag queen.
(Unrelated) they gave Frankie a bionic leg for the sake of disabled representation… all while making Ghoulia talk (she's supposed to be mute/nonverbal autistic). Same hypocrisy as how they removed racial stereptypes all while making Lagoona one

And agreed, they also made them less skinny to be "more inclusive and set less unrealistic standards", except all they did was give them a slightly less skinny pear-shape body. Draculaura (who is thai now, not an issue in itself but makes her story make no sense) is meant to be plus-sized, really she just has huge thighs.

It's so unnatural to see the neopronouns. It's amusing that they're so close to "she/her that it feels as pointless as nonbinary. You don't feel completely girly/masculine based on rigid gender stereotypes? That's…normal. I genuinely wonder how these shows will age in 10 years or so.():)

1000 years of conflicts between Islamic and Hindu states happened because of British propaganda, most communities were ethnically and religiously homogenous, their might have been Muslim and Hindu villages next to each other and might have interacted but it wouldn't have been friendly

I was about to point this out. I get annoyed whenever the argument about Ancient Egyptians'/Pharaohs' races pops up, because Egypt was basically the melting pot of the ancient world due to its geographic location. Dynasties came and went in much the same way they did in China, but due to Egypt's relative diversity, you have dynasties of a variety of ethnicities. On opposite extremes, you had Nubian dynasties, and you had Greek ones. I'm not going to pigeonhole ancient peoples into modern racial archetypes, but just look at Cleopatra VII's (the one people typically mean when they just say "Cleopatra") portrait bust.

Literally all they have to do is stop forcing political messages for the sake of it and just make fun stories again. But their head of diversity just "quit" out of nowhere (it's speculated that she got fired because it was so out of nowhere and they've tried to play it down kek) so perhaps it will start to improve again.

Posted this another thread sometime back but it fits better here, so when I was younger, I used to read this book series called 'Alanna the Lioness' which was about a young noble girl disguising herself as a boy to train for knighthood. The story meant a lot to me. So, out of nostalgia, I looked it up only to find out that the creator now claims that Alanna is gender-fluid, which is untrue to the story. Alanna's femaleness is an essential part of her character, as it affects the plot. Despite taking on a male identity, she still faces abuse and bullying from others who see her as a small, weak boy and can't match men's physical strength, so she has to rely on her superior skill and wit, setting it apart from other YA female fantasy where women easily defeat scores of male soldiers without challenge. The realistic portrayal of Alanna's character made her far more relatable and its insulting to see the author besmirch her work to appease a handful of insecure enbys and TIFs.

No. 306968

Why does Hollywood think that the masses have the taste of some humorless gender studies major? This movie will be a flop and it will be blamed on "incels" when it's actually normal people who simply wanted a fun summer movie.

No. 307223

Is the review accurate though? Or is it wording things that aren't actually too controversial with the wrong phrases? Who knows, I'm sure it'll be a commercial success and will appeal to the average movie goer with a generic "women and men should be treated as equals" message but one of the Barbies is played by a tranny so…

No. 307245

I agree with >>307223 , exploring "gender roles" and "the patriarchy" isn't actually necessarilly bad, it's just that actually using the words "gender roles" and especially "patriarchy" is a good way to make yourself sound pretentious and annoying. I think it's completely doable to make a movie that explore the differences between men and women's places in society in a lighthearted and non-pretentious way.
I really think movie will be a more meta/self-aware version of legally blonde.

Reviews throwing in random woke words doesn't always mean much because it's extremely common for woke type reviewers to wayyyy overhype the social critique of anything they consume so they will either make background elements sound way more central to the plot than they actually are, or they will use a bunch of pretentious buzzwords to insert themes onto the movie that are not actually there and are basically just the reviewer's headcanon.
Example: literally anything that has a character disguise as the opposite sex in a non-comedic way will be called queer even if the character explicitly mentions identifying with their own sex and only disguising for convenience
If this is a cinema description then I'd give it even less weight because it's even more likely they just had a marketing intern look for trendy buzzwords to slap on it.
Either way, you can just wait for it to come out and see people's opinions on it or wait for it to drop on the web, watch it for free, and if it starts being cringe you drop out

Any social commentary this movie makes will be hollow. At the end of the day it's end goal is to promote a brand. They want you to buy fugly pink tops with the Barbie logo that was made by underpaid factory workers, they want you to buy dolls made from plastic that damages the environment. The movie could explore the core values of feminism and it would not fucking matter since it just wants you to consoom. The movie could quote Dworkin for all that I care and it still wouldn't mean anything since the movie just wants your money and is not trying to hide it.
If the director and script writer truly cared about any social issues they would had turned down making a Barbie movie. If anyone had tried to discuss settler colonialism trough The Coca Cola The Movie a few decades ago then people would had rightfully called them phonies but since we live in the age of consoomerism shit like this gets praised.
I know the movie isn't out yet so we can't know for sure if they explore feminism but it's obvious that they are shilling it as a feminist movie in it's advertisemen to hide the fact that it's just going to be a 2 hour long commercial for a brand

No. 308763

samefag I don't care if people do watch the movie I'm probably going to watch it myself but people should watch it because they want to see a fun blocbuster movie not because they want to learn about feminism.

They're doing this on purpose and it pisses me off. My entire friend group has joked about how this movie is going to suck and none of them are racist or "conservatives". I genuinely don't care if an actress playing Snow White is part Latina, or if Ariel is black. If a movie looks dumb, it looks dumb. But Disney conveniently uses this so that they can just brush off any criticism about the movie by screaming "RACISM! NAZIS! Amirite?" and nobody can argue back without it making you look bad. I hate what has become of media, I know Hollywood has always sucked but I'm sick of the rise of internet outrage and obvious controversy-baiting for clicks and views, it's all so tiresome.

This is an old post but this is sort of what happened with winx club allegedly. Season 1 had 2 white characters, 1 Chinese character, 1 latina character, and 1 ambiguous character that is either white or east Asian. Then Americans complained that there weren't a black character so they added one in season 2. And for some reason the creator of the show felt the need to say that the characters are based on actual people and have the exact same ethnicity as them which made the fandom sperg about their race to this and about muh whitewashing when the dark skinned ones got slightly lighter because of a pastel color pallet change. The thing is I don't see the similarities 100%, and the fans insist on making Stella darker in fan art because Camiron Diaz is a latina. But no one says anything about Bloom being a redhead with lighter skin than blonde Britney Spears. Like they can't see that the creator was just pandering to them.

Makes as much sense as casting a black person for a historical Danish story. Can you imagine the freakout if the reverse happened? Everyone would screech "whitewash".

I see what you mean. I don't think she gives off the vibe of elegance that Snow White did in the 30s but the costume and styling is bad in general. They couldn't even dye her hair darker or give her a wig?

No. 316728

She's young and new to fame, so I want to give her the benefit of the doubt and say she was probably gassed up and coached to say all this.

Kek I actually like that guy. Don't know the series though.

I don't like how gay people (and everybody else from the lgbt+ spectrum) is expected to contribute to the "community" and show off with that.
Where do you see any of these forced rules for normal hets? Gays aren't a community, they are normal people and sexuality doesn't define your whole personality. I have nothing against flamboyants and those that participate in Pride parades btw. but this isn't everybody. The large majority of gays are just very normal men and women that can be rich, poor, crazy, calm and that are probably obsesses with some hobbies, be it soccer, gardening or history. Many gays are conservative, many are apolitical, because they are human.

None of them should be forced to show non-stop "solidarity" to all other lgbt+, no hetero sexual person is forced to do that for other hets either. The only ones that might tell hets to do this are literal fundamentalists or nazis and there is reason for why everybody hates them.
