Of course they had to choose the one where he looks the most uncanny valley. As if they are no better ones where he doesn't have wrinkles but still looks normal.

really? I don't like any of them (or the character in general) but that one just makes him look like one of the (imo) blandly ugly male face defaults. Ah well, each to their own.

even though Astarion looks haggard, I can still squint and see what others are into about him. Gortash though, I just cannot see the appeal in (it's not like he even has a particularly fun presence in the game, like idk Raphael's performance, he's just some dumb wanker… is just being a villain enough?), yet I see so much thirsting for that hairy cretin kek

So this is only partially related to fandom, but it does have a strong correlation. I was watching a film video essay (which I sorta half agreed with), I was this one inconsequential comment(as well as a few TIMs and TIFs) and it reminded me of something. Most people didn't realize how unironically, the vast majority of film study theses (and a good chunk of other subject theses as well) will take some movie that is barely remembered, misinterpret it and create retarded takes. I've seen theses about how Gone Home is actually about racial imperialism, or how Hook is an allegory for the fear of queerness around of children and there are thousands of theses like this, and the vast majority of them get approved. When you see a moronic breadtube pulling some bogus source, this is what they're referencing 99% of the time

I deleted my Tumblr and Twitter because of gendies and callouts, so I ended up looking on the Reddit sub for a new game I got into. It's predictably moid-infested (SFW but cheesecake fanart is posted often), but I noticed that during actual character/story discussions I see people talking about trans headcanons getting downvoted to the negatives for once. It was a sight for sore eyes. Are female-dominated spaces really that broken now? I don't want to be friends with moids but I honestly might stick to mixed-sex spaces and befriend the women in those.

It makes me laugh when western weebs try to convince eachother that obvious fetish female characters are good ''strong female representation''. I don't know if they genuinely believe it or of they are just coping to justify liking a medium thats 99% boob fanservice. I have seen retards try to claim the gunsmith cats girls and revy are strong female representation!11!.
How do you reach this level of brainrot where you are incapable of discerning between a real female character thats meant to be cool and strong, and obvious waifubait made because the author likes drawing hot women?. Also, dont get me wrong, i Love Revy and Rally, but they are clearly coom bait and not meant to be genuine strong female characters. Its like when people ask me why i draw guys with guns instead of girls with guns. I am a straight woman, i just like cute guys.

No. 2033027

I don't think they're necessarily mutually exclusive. saying a woman can't be strong because she is sexy (and therefore caters to the male gaze) is similar to when scrotes say women can't be smart or independent or have genuine hobbies/interests if they care about their own appearance and put effort on it.

No. 2033030

that wasnt even my point.

No. 2033032

I wouldn't say Revy is waifubait, coombait though, yeah.

No. 2033033

samefag but to add to my argument, separating female characters between sexualized and virginal is just madonna-whore complex rebranded.
what was your point then? media for scroteshits still can have characters that are strong even if they're poorly written most of the time and whored for the audience.

No. 2033036

Revy is waifubait for scrotes that like getting dominated.

calling waifubait for men ''strong female representation'' is just bleak and shows you have 0 understanding of how men work.

It is true that there's a difference between a character being "strong" and a character being "strong representation", but how exactly would you seperate the two?

You wouldnt call yaoi boys good gay male representation, so i dont understand why men with mommy dommy fetishes get praised for basically indulging in their femme fatale fetish.

No. 2033078

a well written character is not necessarily good representation. I don't know what the fuck is the problem with fandoms nowadays but everyone wants to identify themselves in the characters. I just want to see interesting and well written characters. a lot of villains are irredeemable people but are interesting, well written and entertaining. zoomers are ruining media with the incessant need for representation. I don't mean this for people who are like "uwu I want see more black/asian characters!!" but for people who think every single anime slop character should be deeply analyzed through a social justice lens. sometimes dumb shit don't need explanation to exist. let garbage be garbage.

its not hard. If its made by a woman then its strong female representation, like Riza. If its made by a man, its just a strong mommy dommy character. I find it funny zoomers will cry and cancel any woman who dares to draw yaoi because ''its fetishizing gay moids!!1!'' but will look the other way when a man, like the chainsaw man author, explicitly shouts his dominatrix fetish and still praise his dom mommy characters as ''strong female representation''. For example, you will never see riza get a figure like this.

No. 2033083

that's because men get better written characters in mainstream anime/vidya and female characters are whored for the audience first and whatever traits they have are secondary, hope that helps.

I think it's pretty obvious to anyone that revy is a coombait but you can still appreciate her if you like her archetype. it's not impossible to like a character while realizing its' origins are trash and you're not the audience for it.

No. 2033088

Only because she's pokemon, tbf. Bunny figurines are probably the most common "let's sell out" alongside gacha collabs and the original creators arent usually involved as tar as I know. If the companies can get away with it, they will.

No. 2033114

revy has always been waifubait, she wears extremely short shorts

No. 2033117

she isn't strong female representation because she is not supposed to represent a real woman, she is supposed to represent the idealized view of woman through a moid's pov, same can't be said about riza like another anon pointed out, because she was written by a woman. but to say revy is just coombait is a bit reductive because she does have an interesting story, personality, etc.

No. 2033118

that's my fucking point, a moid did it, you can stop hating the character or the people who like the character for the not sexualized parts of it. some of you will hate women for breathing but don't care about what moids do.

No. 2033119

And? I said the people that make bunny figurines don't care at all if the character is waifubait or not.
They make whatever character they can sell as a bunny figurine, good female rep or waifubait.

No. 2033124

I don't care if moids keep doing it, but I want to see bunny figures of beloved male characters too. imagine the scrote seethe if there was a solid snake bunny figure. males should be more sexualized, it's impossible to get rid of the male gaze, so let's create our own female gaze.

I do think that. I will never respect fictional characters created entiriely so a man can jack off when he looks at her. Meanwhile men are throwing shitfits when their precious video game male MCs look a bit too attractive or by the gods, sexually attractive, because they can't "take them seriously" otherwise.

No. 2033193

Whoever decide to us "strong female characters" to actually mean "well written characters" need to be forced back to school for one more decade. Words have meanings, I'm sick of illiterate tards saying that actual strong, fun female characters are bad representation (yet another separate notion) for women and then listing female characters who are not strong mentally or physically instead. Once on tumblr I saw someone saying Tohru Honda is a strong female character which… kek I don't even know where to start. The idealized doormat who forgives and talks no jutsu an attempted murderer on behalf of the victims while the actual victims don't forgive said abuser in the next scene is sooo strong but don't you dare recommend female characters from an action series that has tons of action scenes! Anyway, start using the correct words to describe characters and maybe there wouldn't be misunderstandings.

No. 2033194

Nta and don't take this an an example because I won't say her name because spoilers, but something I've read had a female character die. While she would 100% be categorized as "boobie waifubait" when it came to visuals I was surprised at how most comments were respectful, practically obituaries about her personality and her life. How she was both bold and arrogant, how she was cherished and blessed in her life both inverse and out and how even in death, she went with utmost grace and dignity.
Ngl it was pretty nice, I liked her too.

No. 2033197

you have brainrot and think the only "valid" type of female characters are the one who you can see yourself on because they're not being whored for scrotes. I just try to appreciate characters for what they are and ignore any sexualization if the character is worth it. we're built different and you will keep clutching pearls while I'm still able to enjoy media not made for me while still recognising its' flaws. you're the epitome of a twitterfag, won't take anything but "representation", will politicize any character and won't accept people might see media differently.

No. 2033209

To be fair "strong" is both a literate (physically powerful) and a figurative notion (psychologically resilient; or when it comes to characters in a story also: well written; complex) so this was bound to happen when people are already discussing with ambiguous terms.

god, i wish i was a scrote. i wouldnt even have to try, i would draw some big booby waifu and then make her 'strong' and i would get hoardes of women defending my coom creation.

I believe it. I'm not saying that's the correct opinion though.

This. The female characters = female readers feels like a western thing mostly.

This bullshit came about as a kneejerk reaction to moids taking over MLP to an extent that you couldn't interact with the fandom without being bombarded by porn. Teen girls saw that they couldn't do shit to make moids fuck off so they took their anger out on other women. They pretend they're moral crusaders caping for the terminally oppressed but really they're just crybullies who desperately need some sense of control over their lives. They have every mental and physical illness in the DSM and they're troons and also their DID headmates are all poly so you can't say anything to them or you're evil.
Because of how retarded, volatile and authoritarian they are, they piss off everyone they interact with. They get cancelled by their fellow cows, do callouts for whoever cancelled them, and on it goes. It seems to have gotten to a point where everyone's pissed off at them and their hysterical black and white thinking, so it's now acceptable to block or bully them back. Hard to tell if this is going to make much of a difference but it has pushed the most retarded ones out of the spotlight, and whenever someone with a 'problematic' past surfaces, they're more likely to get shit for their past actions, so they also tend to lie low or change their usernames.
I don't think things will go back to how they used to be until it's normal to have a completely anonymous online presence again. No selfies, no identifying information, nothing. Maybe when Tiktok dies and there's less incentive for kids to put their lives online 24/7 they'll calm down.

No. 2033368

There's been a global trend towards media censorship recently, it doesn't affect only fandom. Must be something in the collective consciousness, maybe in the last 10 years animanga (which is highly sexual because of reasons linked to japanese culture) becoming globalised and early internet access traumatizing children with internet pornography who have now become messed up adults (though they won't admit it; see tranny social contagion), there is a pushback towards sexual and deviant sexual representations in fiction. I'm just speculating, would love to hear other nona's thoughts too. As for the pendulum, it's going to swing like it always has - an era marked by puritan/catholic/you name it media censorship followed by an era marked by media libertinage and open sexual deviancy.

That just goes to show that we're at the tail end of an era of sexual liberation and free, available and extreme sexual content in our media. I mean just as an example aren't women being pushed into extreme forms of sexualization what with the normalization of doing onlyfans while also losing their reproductive rights worldwide? Sexual content around is reaching extremes which is why the reaction (demands for less sexual content as well as censorship) is equally extreme. That's why sexual liberation and sexual repression is a pendulum, many such cases in history.

No. 2033409

Kek I think we're getting there. The retardation has gone so far that even the ones perpetuating this shit are getting fed up with it. I think that what's really driving this shift is a mixture of everyone getting sick of the oppression olympics and an ageing userbase. Teens are taught to believe anything they see if it comes from a popular account. They then grow into adults who suddenly realize that they have no actual skills, the unskilled jobs they write fanfic about actually suck, and they have the social skills of a paranoid chihuahua. They don't have time to send death threats to other SU fans with incorrect opinions, and seeing someone sob about how they're oppressed for not seeing enough fat BIPOC rep in Disney is kinda grating when you're struggling to keep yourself afloat. That's not to say that there aren't retarded adults, but most of them are the '25 year old minor, ickies DNI' variety.
Because of how impossible it is to scrub yourself from the internet I think there's going to be a big shift towards letting kids make mistakes and not hounding people over their pasts. Hopefully it becomes the norm to not put your personal information online again, but there are too many attention whores for that to happen any time soon.

You can thank lolicon otaku in the 80s and loli otaku animators who latched onto little girls like Minky Momo and had them as their waifus. It's far from a current thing.
If you think of at least one mahou shoujo anime made after Minky Momo that you like, it's guaranteed the production team of the show catered to the moid otakus who watched them and loved/lusted over their heroines, at some point.
Mahou shoujo is for little girls first but for otaku moids second, kind of like how MLP ended up but not nearly as blatant about it.

IMO this is why joseimuke is becoming more and more popular in female otaku spaces. Shoujo has been unpopular for decades and mahou shoujo is a moid playground unless the series is 10+ years old (like older precure seasons, sailor moon, etc; doremi fsr has been appropriated by moids).
The closest thing I saw to a mahou shoujo female fandom in current years was when Love Live was popular with women.

You'd think it'd be the opposite, conservative fandom moids would be the ones to become antis and harass artists for wrongthink based on religious purity values while LGBTQIA women in fandom would have a more empathetic, tolerant of the other and "don't like don't look" type of attitude.

I'd garner it's men historically who needed to keep women in check (so they wouldn't have reproductive control and go have sex with other men) and thus created a society which taught women to keep each other in check on their behalf. And we come along into this society and we bear all this historical burden of patriarchy without even realising, even when we have a form of reproductive rights and control for the first time in history. However, I'd say men do keep each other in check in even more violent ways by waging literal war against each other. So why aren't they doing it in fandom?

This. Anons here are complete hypocrites when it comes to their morals surrounding female fanservice. They'll rail on madoka while having a shrine dedicated to Gojo, a character from an anime that has an incestbait /ss/bait fanservice pair and all around horrible treatment of female characters.

I don't respect Urobutcher but I liked Madoka for commenting on the fact that young girls are treated as disposable by society and the enormous suffering they carry. Kyuubei is also an interesting allegory to those who prey on teenage girls and throw them away like trash once they're done with them. Whenever I follow Russian ice-skating drama sometimes I remember Madoka.

Honestly, it's pretty fun, but I can say that some of the designs are probably too much for a lot of people here.
It stays edgy but doesnt go too far with it, but it does get away from Madoka into a more murder mystery type deal, it changes from arc to arc, the third being more of a chased time mission, etc.

Ruri Dragon is the shortest and is a very mellow and comfy SOL. It has some cute interactions with the mom character, I found its portrayal of the teenage girl protagonist charming and non-moidy enough.
Blue Box I read the most of. It has an unambiguously female author, it’s basically just a shoujo romance with a male pov character. It’s good if you want a chill hs romance with a focus on sports, it’s cute and a little silly and the couple gets together in a reasonable amount of time, but it’s also very mellow.

She doesn't end up talking sexy, the lesson of that arc is that she shouldn't force herself to be sexy when it doesn't fit her character and isn't funny, and thst as she ages and gains experience, her performance will change.

My thing is that tv and media aren’t fuckin real, lol. when you’re a kid it’s nice to grow up seeing yourself on tv and in stores and comics and whatnot. But those are consumerist pleasures we have, because we’re privileged. It’s a privilege to be able to produce entertainment, tv shows, anime, comic books, block buster movies , sell expensive action figures and toys, etc. and it’s a privilege to consume them! They’re all apart of capitalism and sold only as products. In that sense it really shouldn’t fuckin matter if every superhero on the side of a cereal box is a blonde haired and blue eyed kid, or a rabbit with a top hat. It means nothing at the end of the day and anything it fullfills is so shallow, surface level, and egotistical, that it warrants not even a fraction of the urgency people treat it with. It’s just not that important

Why not devote your time to uplifting real people who look like you in your community. A fat obese black lesbian ninja in Naruto is not a practical or realistic role model. It’s totally an ego thing that retards on twitter want to treat like a ‘life or death’ thing.

Exactly, I understand the argument that kid's shows having an interracial couple or G-rated gay couple or disability treated as a non-issue is good because it's educational, but I don't understand why anyone over the age of 20 cares as much. It feels like they care more about seeing diverse fiction than supporting real people like that.

I get wanting to avoid dumb shit, but dropping out before the story even tells you what it's trying to do seems dumb, like moids who drop because the female lead might talk to a male character that isn't the lead and that means they're basically ntr'ing them.

No one is ever obligated to finish a story if the set up seems to be headed in a direction the audience doesn't like.

nta but imo people care so much about (increasingly niche) 'representation' as teens/adults because it indulges their narcissism and means that they don't have to apply as much effort to empathise with the characters on screen (which is an attitude that is at least partially taught and fostered by all the identity-based media discourse going around the last decade or so). I honestly think that a person should feel fucking embarrassed to say "I can't relate to x character, an abstracted facsimile of a human, because we don't share x trait", because if they feel that way about fake shit, I can't imagine their opinions towards real people who differ from them are much better.

Visual media is bad enough, but this attitude being applied to literature bothers me the most, since the whole point is being in someone else's head and experiencing their world and thoughts, so dismissing an entire story just because it doesn't match you specifically (not your interests, but you) is just so warped to me.

That and the mechas… despite female mech fans/artists not being that obscure a niche lol). Same thing happens outside of fandom though, spent years in a gaming group where it was assumed I was a guy until I went on mic lmao.

I don't think you're a traitor for specifically pretending to be a guy either, fandoms are supposed to be for fun, and so many of them are full of toxic rats who'll only attack and harass female fans but ignore far worse moids, so whatever lets you have a good time and avoid that shit is worth it imo.

Cutie Honey was made for male audiences and the manga was released a shonen magazine. It's not really a show you can compare to actual mahou shojou for little girls because the demographic and targets were completely different… it also aired in the dinner/late afternoon time slot like Lupin the Third instead of early in the morning or after school.
Vidrel is mahou shoujo FOR GIRLS made by Go Nagai (coomer author of Cutie Honey, for those who don't know) and you can see the clear difference in tone and imagery.

Also, sidenote, Honey is a gynoid meant to look like an adult woman, she was never a character that lolicon otaku latched onto. She was always meant to be a character for men and boys, unlike other mahou shoujo before Minky Momo exploded in popularity.

Yes, and Creamy Mami came out after they knew they could have an otaku audience. They had an idol voice her and they accepted male otaku at their live events for little girls. For the record, majokko otaku are part of why otaku in Japan always had a reputation as horny pedophiles and part of it is due to their presence at these kinds of events.

If you look at most actual mahou shoujo before Minky Momo got a male otaku audience it's anime like Chappy (vidrel) or Sally where the sexy content is equal to zero. The characters are cartoony and silly and there is an emphasis on cuteness and whimsical things, but it's not made to be titillating in any way.

The outliers are Cutie Honey (made for men) and Majokko Meg (made for boys first and girls second and it replaced Honey on the same timeslot), and even then Meg already toned the sex appeal down compared to Honey because the idea of an anime about female characters for men wasn't popularized yet. Even then, Honey and Meg aren't little girls, because back then they had no ideas that being into little girls would become a widespread phenomenon in japanese nerds.

Mahou shoujo was not a genre made for males, but it developed to cater to lolicon otaku earlier than you think. And again, not just shows like Madoka or the recent coom fotm magical girls or Prisma Ilya cater to male otaku. Sailor Moon, Mew Mew, some PreCure seasons, etc, all catered to male otaku to acceptable levels when they aired.
Now, I'm saying that these shows are tainted and impossible to watch due to this fact, just that mahou shoujo as a genre in Japan can't be separated from the adult male audience anymore.
It's something we magical girl fans have to make peace with or not think about, because it does feel like some sort of betrayal even if it's just silly cartoons.

You know this trend is cancerous when other trans-identified people are calling it out. It's funny because a decade ago the narrative was that transpeople are too dysphoric to use their genitals, wtf happened to that? I see people admitting this on anonymous sites too.

No. 2038750

Thought r/ao3 was wisening up before the community downvoted and berated the user for being "transphobic". For what? Pointing out countless trojan horse fics promising m/m and f/f only to be met with piv but it's so totes gay because the author said so.
Piv in slash is somehow more queer than two men actually having sex. Don't quote me on that, that's what I've gleamed after lurking the thread and finding a several users defending the sanctity of such a cursed genre of fanfiction. These are the same retards whining about het a/b/o but turn around defending a/b/o AUs that turns one of the MCs into a woman in every sense but name. The cognitive dissonance is giving me a brain aneurysm just thinking about it.
Is it too much to ask for slash to be about normal same-sex pairings without coming off as a crytoterf?
Some say they do, but dysphoria conveniently ceases whenever they like, no matter how nonsensical and arbitrary. It's different when they do it. Consistency was never on tifs and tim's mind while living out their deluded lives walking fetish trucks since to them, becoming the opposite sex is the important fulfillment to true degeneracy.

So many people coping and saying PIV sex can be gay and that it's totally transgressive, it's too funny. It's literally the most represented type of sex and was never criminalized yet you'd think otherwise based on the comments. No one demeans PIV on the basis that it's gross (gay sex) or not real (lesbian sex). These people are so terminally online that they think fanfic readers not liking tranny het on AO3 is peak oppression, they will never experience a sliver of what gay people experience.

I remember there was a trend a decade ago where people joked about their het ships being subversive because they wrote about pegging or femdom, I'm not a hetfag but I preferred that over claiming trans PIV is queer. I wish I could transport these zoomer gendies to back when sodomy laws were around.

No. 2038939

I don't larp as a guy but I'm in male-heavy sides of my interests and everyone assumes I'm a man there. Obviously it has its downsides like how the majority of moids only care about coomery but if you find a couple of decent people it's not a bad experience. There's a lot less tone-policing/virtue-signalling/retarded social justice politics and even if you say something politically incorrect you don't have to worry about people pulling a sudden 180 on you.

Of course you can achieve the same thing with women but in my experience it's 100x harder to find likeminded women, LC is my only option for that but it's not really an apt substitute for regular interaction on social media. Even the seemingly apolitical ones start chanting TWAW protect trans kids up out of nowhere so I gave up.

>I remember there was a trend a decade ago where people joked about their het ships being subversive because they wrote about pegging or femdom
The new thing is calling het ships "bi4bi" therefore it's queer and not tainted by icky allocishet privilege even though it's a man and woman in a relationship. Though it's worse than the pegging = subversive jokes because these people are serious and will call you biphobic if you call their ships straight.

No. 2039826

I think sometimes (but not always) that backlash towards cute-ifying or wholesome!AU fanart for darker or edgy media stems from fans of that kind of media expecting the fandom to reflect it and make more of it rather than change it into something it's not– eg you play a horror game only to find the fandom full of pastel positive vibes art etc. Not saying that's even a bad thing, only that the expectation of a fandom being a gateway to more of the things you like not being met can tick people off, or make other fans seem 'fake', especially if it's something niche. You see it with reboots and remakes that change the original aesthetics or tones as well.

You're right anon! Zoomers and older alphas are definitely ruining the fun in fandom. They want everything to cater to them and cannot accept different interpretation of their favourite characters. The most annoying part is they will go ballistic when people have fun with non-canon pairings/shipping. I was called out by a snot-nosed zoomie for commenting that A character should be with C character instead of A character's official pairing with character B because they have more screen time together but this zoomie got buttmad and pulled the "Bu-but A character is a minor card!!!". Thing is character C has a 4 year gap between character A but is still a teenager like character A. So there wasn't a "minor" issue at all! I hate how zoomies/alphas are quick to use the "minor" card to win a disagreement or worse, cancel a person. Why can't they just use their brain to at least argue why they think A and C wouldn't be a good pairing instead of jumping straight to cancelling a person. Does no one teach them how to have a fun discussion/debate anymore? Or teach them to ignore views that they don't agree with instead of taking everything personally? I'm definitely gonna stop engaging in big fandoms now. It's too risky out there. You can be cancelled at any moment by a random snot-nosed kid just because you "headcanon" their fav character wrongly.

So true. Some young millenials are bonkers too. I hate how some of them hide behind the "fandom mom" label and try to dictate what is okay and not okay in a fandom. They try really hard to be the "queen bee" of the fandom which also ruins the fun. This ain't high school people! Same anon. When I was a kid I just lurk around deviantart and ao3 and never engage in fandoms at all because I know most fanfic writers and artists are adults. I respected their works and never comment on anything that is not to my taste because I know I'm the one who wrongly encroached into an adult space. There's a reason why sites like dA and ao3 gives out warning that you have to be 18 years and above to read/see the contents.

>Minor characters

Mmkay but what if I was a minor at the time the show was airing? What am I supposed to do not age? I know he's not a good example because technically/canonically he's a grown ass man now, but I can never tell where people land on this kind of thing when it comes to Husbandofagging. It feels so off-putting getting called a pedo for liking a character I've liked for fucking years. And also since the situations they're all put in is not based in reality anyway.(I'm not talking about loli/shota characters btw I'm talking about the fictonal characters that were popular with my age group at the time.) Where is the line exactly?

Most of the time everyone expects you to move on and find an older character, which is kind of what happens when the Fandom is mostly a bunch of trend-hoppers with the attention span of a wasp on drugs.

One thing I never understood was how so much of fandom is against "aging up" characters. I still like the characters and ships I had in middle/high school (who were my age then), why is it so wrong to want them to imagine them as my age? It's like if I keep a character who was 16 in a show that aired in 2009 the same I'm a pedo but if I draw them as a 30 year old that's also creepy because "I'm fixating on a minor and want to see them grown up for creepy reasons"

No. 2042549

Tbh, in that case it's mostly because they're too retarded to understand that women aren't like the average moid that makes anime little girls look like ugly ass bimbos and call that "aged up versions" there's literally not an equivalent bimbo style for anime boys that doesn't look straight up retarded unlike the kind of drawings that shadman and other coomers does.

Ashamed to admit I managed to at least somewhat guess it. Old and middle aged men are all the rage with twitter/tumblr types now, and once I saw the youtube essayists start talking about it I knew it was only a matter of time. None of this matters anyway, since even politely disagreeing with a gendie headcanon (or in some cases, deliberately ignoring them) makes you the most horrible person on earth for some reason. Gendies can't ever calmly disagree or meet halfway on something and that's 90% my annoyance with them.

No. 2042555

Not really, because they do that to already buff characters. I really have a hard time imagining an exaggerated design of men that doesn't look straight up retarded and that has been actually used to signify sexiness like how the hourglass figure with huge breasts and huge ass have been used for so long.
But I guess it could be that, still thought, I haven't seen women making hyper buff drawings of characters like Astroboy or Hanako while saying that it's an "aged up version" of the characters.

No. 2042569

I understand how you feel. I think for me, the line is drawn when the character is written to be a kid and visually looks like a kid. I also really like the Elrics, and I like a lot of sports anime male characters (even though they all look like adults but somehow are 14). I think if people find men liking little girl characters creepy, then they should understand why people would find it weird if women liked underage characters. At the end of the day, they're not real, but I still find it weird in certain circumstances.

I also think arguments like >>2042530 are pointless because women do find men who like loli weird. It's just a universal thing and that's why a lot of women aren't 24/7 tweeting screenshots about how men like loli or how weird it is. We know a majority of men are into loli, why would they spend 24/7 talking about how bad it is, or even go in those spaces? It's just a bad deflection. On the other hand too, I think people spend too much time online because women anime fans in real life all still have crushes on the teenage characters, it's online fandom spaces that are policing about it.

Some people have weird reactions to characters being 'aged up' because they see them as a sort of eternal child/teen/whatever and don't like that illusion being broken by implying they will age and get boring jobs and have non-chaste relationships– you ruin their endless summer, so to speak. It's retarded I know, but also something I've only really seen strongly in regards to media that's very static (cartoons are a great example, where characters will be the same age forever despite the show going for years or even decades), but not so much for media that has characters age and mature (especially if they're depicted as adults, not just older teens) over the course of its run.

This obviously isn't the biggest reason for this nonsense, but I thought I'd bring it up since it can be behind a knee-jerk distaste towards the idea of ageing up characters that doesn't have much to do with shipping or anti/proship idiocy. For younger fans they might find it confronting to see an outside force change something they relate to into something they're not ready for yet (eg ageing a teen character up to college age), and for older fans it might be that they want a character to stay a pristine time capsule (especially if it's from media they enjoyed when they were younger/same age as the characters in it), or they might see them from a more parental/sibling perspective with anything else being disruptive towards that.

Tbh I also draw the line there since it’s reasonable. Unfortunately a lot of people don’t for some reason but maybe it’s because they’re young or retarded or something. Im also a huge sports anime fan and I recall when there was a resurgence in popularity for HQ!! during COVID. I’ve witnessed a lot of “UM ISNT HE A MINOR” despite the characters being tall and muscular (anime also came out when I and lots of artists were still in high school). Even at that point they were already adults in the manga. Even with recent animes like My Hero, literally all of them were muscular and a lot of the time their fanart made them look way older anyway. I don’t mind “aging up” a character either as that pretty much falls into the same realm of AU ideas. But maybe that’s just me

Because they're not little kids, they are fictional characters.

I haven't read that much into part 2, but I think people making such a big deal about CSM's psychosexual stuff is actually an indictment of the way shounen treats women and sex. The whole "if I save your cat you let me touch your boobs" arc is based on the unspoken rule that Denji needs Power's consent to grope her, and Denji doesn't even try to sleaze out of the deal. I think a lot of people finding it super deep is people that are used to shounen slop where the pervert character just walks around committing sexual assault for giggles so when they see something a bit more realistic and more serious than that their brains explode.

Having toxic relationships with men doesn't mean you're experiencing comphet, that's just every other straight woman's experience kek.

I genuinely have no hope for Gen Z or Alpha. Media literacy is dead and buried, there's no room for nuance. Obviously when a 30-year old is watching something like My Hero Academia where the characters and their motivations are meant to be relatable regardless of your age (proving yourself, protecting your friends, finding your place in the world, feeling slighted etc.) but they're all teenagers for the sake of convenient storytelling, you're going to find them relatable and also get invested in the relationships they have. If they were real kids whose situation you got way too into, that would be disturbing because they're not a controlled story written by an author but living, sentient beings with complex inner worlds you're not allowed access. But those other teenagers are fictional characters created and written by an adult. And I honestly don't know the extent of brain damage one has to have to put committing child abuse and """shipping minors""" in the same ballpark.

>I hate how zoomies/alphas are quick to use the "minor" card to win a disagreement or worse, cancel a person.

For some reason, maybe the influence of pedo-peddling Gen Xrs do with their Y2K revival and nymphet fetish and helicopter parenting, I don't know, zoomers are obsessed with youth and thinking of themselves as perpetual children and self-infantilize to no end. Always failing to realize that soon enough they will be in their 30's too, and they'll have to lay on the bed of fandom policing that they made. Oh no, that 16-year old character didn't grow up with you and you still like shipping Naruto and Sasuke like you did when you were 15? Too bad they're 12 and you're a pedo now. You wrote the rules!

>Why can't they just use their brain to at least argue why they think A and C wouldn't be a good pairing instead of jumping straight to cancelling a person.

I would much rather read a painfully autistic, 16-page essay about why A/C is a better ship than A/B filled with cited sources but because zoomers have a raging hate boner for millenials being invested in fiction, it's completely verboten to indulge in such behavior. I remember a Gen Z anon on Lolcow saying how she thinks it's embarrassing that Millenials care so much about "Disney and Harry Potter" instead of "real issues in the world" (and ironically enough, Zoomers themselves treat fictional people as real people and real people as cartoon characters) which speaks enough about their mindset, you have to make everything into an issue with morality to justify your opinion. That's how you get all this endless hand-wringing about muh problematic ships and muh problematic themes in media. Zoomers bitch and moan about "wokeness" ruining their fandom experience yet then turn around and post dogshit takes like this >>2040937 and get personally offended when someone headcanons their self-insert as a lesbian, I've had enough. Everyone under 25 should be banned from fandom spaces, I'm laying it down right now.

No. 2045345

I think it's mainly two reasons. One, zoomies are obsessed with representation and seeing themselves in fiction and for whatever reason think they can't relate to a character unless they share every microidentity with that character. Two, simply being delusional about your headcanons is lame now and gives you zero authority in discussion. If you're able to insist your headcanon is plausible/semi-canon that gives you free reign to shit on anyone who doesn't agree and puts you in the superior position; you can brag about how "media literate" you are and everyone else is some phobe/ist.

I joined a niche fandom recently and made a good mutual friend, who I’ve been bouncing back and forth smut ideas with a lot. Recently they randomly asked me when I’m going to write a trans![insert our favourite character] fic, as if it was a question of WHEN I’m going to do it, irrespective of whether I wanted to or not. Obviously I fucking don’t. But how the hell do you respond to that kind of query without outing yourself? It’s like these people deliberately phrase it as a trap; a weaker person than myself would have just caved already out of fear. How should I non-suspiciously tell them to knock it the fuck off?

There's a kind of top surgery called keyhole. In this method the doctor places an anchor or a keyhole shaped incision around the areola extending to the underside of the breast. Then a small device is inserted to melt fat and a low power vacuum is used to extract it. After this is done the area is stitched up reducing the breast size. It doesn't leave any scars at all. But they're only done when the breasts are small (A or B cups at most). Usually the nipples may look botched but they end up healing well and may look normal. She seems low body fat in that picture so it makes sense the surgery would have good results. She acts like a TIF and looks like one so I'm sure she is. Trust your instincts nonnas.

The reason so many TIFs do the worst tit chops and they scar so bad is because they are fatasses who can't have this surgery performed on them, they don't know the options, they like the scarring or they have terrible hygiene and can't take care of themselves so the scars always look worse than if they took care of them.
Best way for a TIF to pass is not to say she's a TIF, not to be extremely short, voice train (they never do it, I know some who have and they don't have that froggy voice), exercise, dress like a man, have manly interests and hang out with men. Which they never accomplish.

Compulsory heterosexuality was coined by Adrienne Rich in the 1970s (later published in the 80s) to explain the social, political, and economic conditioning of women in patriarchy to think that marriage (to a male) and motherhood are inevitable. Her answer to this was that all women should be political lesbians who are unavailable to men because partnering with men undermines their feminism. She even separated real lesbians versus political lesbian feminists. The "lesbian existence" was primarily about "erotic and emotional choices made by women", and "lesbian continuum" (woman-identification as opposed to heterosexual-identified/male-identified women) included all activities relating to boosting women up socially, politically, and economically. This included activities like African women's trading networks. So it was very broad and not largely related to sexuality at all. Although I know that many bi women political-lesbians did actually have sex with other women because they wrote about how fun it was, and then had to fight for the custody rights of their kids they had with their exhusbands within the law when the law actively worked to disadvantage women more than it does now.

Basically "comphet" has always meant "straight/bi woman who identifies as a lesbian but is not actually lesbian." and fandoms (who are always spouting off how they "hate terfs!!1!" and how ~all cis lesbians are terfy~) appropriated this radfem terminology for some insane reason, probably to do their 5 minutes of femslash activism (akin to briefly acknowledging the awkward bullied kid in the schoolyard and sympathetically wondering how she got that way) before they continue flicking it to yaoi characters being drilled on mrm while they publish male/ftm under the m/m category on ao3 like a catholic at confession. Respect to them or whatever but I wish they'd STFU because they fill up the lesbian tags with their BS but never draw or write anything. It's all performance. Probably out of guilt of being the absolute most useless members of fandom that nobody likes, not even their discord friends can stand them, and I know this because their friends have DM'd me just to complain about them kek.

It's something Hazbin actually takes from religion (most of the time it just does its own thing), so you know whoever's complaining is just complaining for the sake of it. They try so hard to find morally right reasons to hate on Hazbin from their insane gendie lefty POVs, but they really can't because the show is the most inoffensive kiddie adult cartoon ever (it also preaches rather christian moral lessons lmao), so they make up the most ridiculous and inane shit just to have the moral high ground over Vivziepop and her sparkledogs.

Sage for retardation but there’s a mini game involving the feather men in universe series that heavily implies goro was experimented on and worked in tandem with futabas mom, and neither of them knew the consequences of the metaverse then. Meaning goro killing futabas mom most likely was an experiment to see what would happen. I think the whole narrative of him being a victim of circumstance, and to “le evil adults” is what actually made me empathize with him more than I would with moid characters specifically because he was a victim of circumstances to the evil men in his life, like his father and his lackeys. That and his mom being a victim of having to do SW for survival + his anger at the injustice society had done to her but also respect for all she did for him in that one confidant scene, all to me is very female gaze-y and like a woman wrote it. it also helps that moids seethe so hard over him being the really obvious gay bait for the protag that makes me like him more out of spite kek.

They hate him because he's a good-looking clever bishonen that has more plot relevancy (he's the main antagonist up until a certain point) than any of their waifus and the MC canonically cares for him even if players choose to not do his confidant (in vanilla P5 you didn't really have a choice since it was automatic). In the game he has all these details in his design and lore that mirror the MC and this doesn't happen with the other characters. In Royal his showtime with Joker has writings on the signs in the background saying "Prodigal sons" and "Two sides same coin", Atlus decided to really push the fujobait with them and it made moids seethe so hard kek. Idc what the personafags say, I still think Persona 5 was good only because of him and otherwise it would have absolutely sucked. Atlus knew this too and decided to bring him back for Royal and tbh it's laughable how they were trying to put the red-haired mary-sue as equal to him, it only made her look even lamer.

The fact that they added a whole new minigame cleverly hinting at this (the name of the scientist that can be read as Wakaba, the grey featherman symbolizing Goro against the other feathermen who are the thieves, all of this connecting to the cut content of Wakaba's silhouette as the master of a palace and her concept art where she's shown experimenting on people) is insane to me, the women on the team really went off.

I can't unsee the polilez similarities when so-called ace lesbians shclick to yaoi but swear on their mother's grave they're totes gay, pussies are just gross but since it's intersectional and woke, it gets a pass without question. What ever happened to "if pussies turn you on, you're lesbian"? Too exclusive? Little too terfy? Is sex so sinful that lesbians actually enjoying sex is a oxymoron to them? But oh wait, SSA lady sex don't count because no peen. Kek…

Downton had the same issues as this series, modern sensibilities with an old world pastiche and it drives me up the wall. Of course they’re going to highlight whatever characters they want and ignore the canon; sucks for the fans if they speak out they’re racist or sexist et al. I haven’t read the books but from what I saw it’s even more modern than Downton, like Marie Antionette (Copolla version). Period pieces used to look like they were set apart (look at the fabric and fashion for example) and now it looks cheap and tired.

I really cannot stand how easy it is for "proshippers" (who are mostly minor girls/ftms) to defend lolicon/shotocon and to see adult men in the same spaces. If you go on tiktok and search up nekopara, you can easily see 13-14 year olds associating in these spaces and adult men following them. People are so adamant on defending the "anti" shit, but are forgetting that fandom spaces are including kids, and as much as we blame the parents, these people never seem to blame grown men following kids in these spaces. I do not think women liking anime characters is the same thing as men, but let's be honest, men are different from women who consume such media. Women in these spaces are so adamant on defending the men in these spaces and keeping other women in check in fandom spaces, that they're not even noticing what's happening under their nose. I had to call out a 20 something year old following a 14 year old girl in these kind of spaces talking about how she wanted to get groomed. I keep seeing posts that are like "KEEP MINORS OUT OF FANDOMS!! KEEP MINORS OUT OF ___"?? Like, that's not going to stop the pedophiles in your spaces going after kids.

I was mutuals with an aroace lesbian once. Her "sexuality" could be summed up into being an online shut-in that only wants to be friends with women, probably because she's uncomfortable with men and constantly calling her favorite male character a lesbian. Which isn't a problem in itself, but with the current zeitgeist where the more microlabels you have the more social currency you gain it just leads people to identifying as the most retarded shit. Autigender greyace lesbian is the new celibate husbandofag.

My favorite female character in P5 is Sae and I'm sure she's writte. the way she is because she's not a love interest so the writers weren't limiting themselves to just making her one of the good guys whose character development doesn't matter because hers is directly linked to the main story instead of optional and linked to a confident you can complete whenever you want. This is also exactly why Akechi is well written in comparison to most of the playable characters and why he's so loved by the fandom. He has surprising twists that aren't all about worshipping the MC, his how story is plot relevant instead of some side thing like Makoto wanting to befriend some classmate because they both like Hello Kitty or some shit, and it's obvious the writers had a lot more freedom when writing Akechi. There are more female Atlus employees now so maybe P6 will try to have more female characters who are actually important and who aren't exclusively good people for the sake of not making social links/confidents easier to write.

No. 2052594

Goro is so fucking based and I love him, absolute peak male character as you said.

No. 2052607

How isn't this just friendship? I know sex isn't always a necessity in a relationship but becoming extremely uncomfortable and repulsed with bodily contact included with a lack of physical attraction comes off to me as more of some trauma response or simply not being attracted to this gender. I knew a girl who used to completely lack a sex drive but she saw sex as equal to a hug or a handshake, she didn't desire it but she didn't have a panic attack when it came up.

As an actual fujolesbian I hate these people so much because they lead you on bragging about being the gayest bitch around but when push comes to shove, pussy doesn't suffice and women are only good for emotional support and as caregivers like in that comic above, not for sex or serious relationships. They're the kind who self insert all the time and after they get a boyfriend when nearing 30 they turn on fujos and relentlessly complain about straight content not being popular enough in fandoms.

No. 2052677

Sae is also a favourite of mine. A shame they had to sexualize her in her palace but she's a cool villain there too and I really love her monster boss form. You're right in saying that her not being romanceable leaves space for actual character depth and growth, while the waifus may be nice (but not too much tbh) in the main story but their character gets destroyed during their confidants because they turn into blushing shy uwu giwls thirsting over the MC (because god forbid males don't have romance content involving a doormat that kisses their self-insert's asses) and then once their arcs are over they almost disappear. Kasumi going "senpai" every two minutes was the most grating thing.
To this day I still don't know why so many moids latched onto her. Among the female team members she's the blandest one who also has an annoying ass voice that you're forced to hear 24/7 in battle once she joins. She's pushed as the clever one but she only repeats what everyone says calmly and makes basic observations. Her social link sucked, her arc sucked and her non-existent growth sucked. You can't show a person finally freeing themselves of strict social norms/high expectations, going ham and dropping the good girl act and then… go back at making her the good girl with perfect grades who respects everyone. Akechi also does this but successfully.

God, this. Nothing about Makoto changes once she becomes a phantom thief, she continues being just the same uppity goody two shoes person she always was, never really talking back to her sister, still being a teachers' pet and a doormat, the only thing she really does is getting the data from Sae's laptop and that was only out of necessity and Futaba did all of the actual work to begin with. The same happened with Kasumi, her entire character arc was "stop living in your sister's shadow" and then… she just goes back to skinwalking her sister just the same. Meanwhile Akechi becomes an entirely new character post his mask off part and it sticks. I honestly fucking hate how lousy the writing for most female characters is yet we're supposed to pretend like it isn't and that we just have to fix it in our headcanons instead of demanding better.

They only care because it is currently the mainstream issue that you constantly see on the news. Once it fell out of relevancy (i.e Russia-Ukraine, BLM), they will move on to the next issue for activism clout.

god can't people just admit to liking things anymore? also kek at mindhunter being 'copaganda' when so much of it is about how insane the MC is and how no one really knows what the fuck they're doing and gets shit wrong. It's also weird to frame media where the targets are only serial killers, who do truly monstrous things, as being propaganda– it's not like the show is about punishing petty criminals and druggies or something (saying this because those are the types I see these people bring up as being unfairly handled by the police), and it even tries to be sensitive about racial issues while also being period accurate (whether you think it succeeds or not, point is that you'd think these people would see the effort if not appreciate it). Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't Mindhunter pre-date the true crime streaming boom as well?

How do you people even participate in "fandom"? I recently got into a fandom after many years of only consuming old things. First thing first, if you follow any of these people on Tumblr they're always genderspecials. They're all very obviously women but none of them will admit to it. Recently there is this gender meme on Tumblr where you pick your gender out of a series of squares and literally nobody is just a normal woman?? I followed these people because they wrote fics and I thought they seemed normal, but then you go on their page and they're reblogging their headcanons for trans!character or vile fanart where the character has mastectomy scars. Are people more normal on Twitter? Maybe some people have a higher tolerance for this stuff but I will never willingly talk to a tranny

No. 2053773

>Are people more normal on Twitter?
Normal, non mentally nerds tend to lay low on twitter so good luck finding them in English speaking and just western spaces in general. They'll have a few followers or have private accounts. The more vocal fans are the exact same ones you described and tend to have a lot of followers, post way too much for them to not be neets, and younger, clueless fans will think everything they say is true and canon just because they say shit without any reliable sources or word their headcanons like they're an academic thesis.

No. 2053848

What do you mean by "for 15yo"? Fandoms are communities of fans so you can't know how the fans are without interacting with them a little. If you mean "liking series or games made for a 15yo audience" then it's a separate matter and it really doesn't mean much because some series are popular enough that they have plenty of adult fans so if you're into popular shonen manga or anime and you know what you're doing you can potentially interact with only adult fans. And sometimes you have shitty brats posting about trans headcanons online about series oe video games explicitly made for adults.

No. 2053855

I'm in a fandom for old people and plenty of women on tumblr are still genderspecials. You wouldn't know unless you went on their profiles and saw the he/him bio though, they don't post gendie shit, act like obvious women with zero attempt to be masculine, seem perfectly mature and normal otherwise, etc. It's actually bizarre, and it's so offensive to me that these women don't want to be called women even if they make zero attempt to be anything else… it's so obvious they just think it's an inferior thing to be. They don't seem to care about being male but they sure as hell don't want to be an icky boring woman.

No. 2053871

Yes this is exactly what irks me. Like if you're going to fully commit to being a tranny I can at least respect the effort you put into assuming this new identity. These people are so clearly women but for some reason they have to identify as some special gender? It's so beyond cringe especially because most of them are in their 20s or even older. If they were just kids I would find it funny but these are grown women saying "ooh my gender is in the C4 square but actually sometimes I feel like a B3"

If you want fandom to be tranny-free you might as well give up. Even if you manage to avoid following troons everyone else is a troon supporter so there's no point. The best thing you can do is not care about interacting with fandom as a whole and instead make a couple friends with the same interests. Every crypto I know doesn't involve themselves in fandom or a specific "subtwitter" of a series, they just have a vetted circle of friends that aren't crazy gendies. It takes awhile but it's worth it.

Yes, I've been wondering the same for some time before I realized those yurifags are all troons.

No. 2054074

agree, and it especially sucks when the original media has some really interesting ideas and themes and no hints of romance, but the fandom instead fixates on the fanon versions of two characters who have been warped into cliche moulds/romance dynamics (or sub/dom shit). Tbh I probably wouldn't mind it half as much if characters were still kept at least mostly canon (and the setting maintained intead of shifting to generic modern/mundane AU etc), but that's apparently a big ask even if the canon character is a simple archetype and not complex in the slightest.

Worst thing though is how showing dislike/disinterest for a ship can get you marked as 'suspicious' in some fandoms, even if you're super polite about it or don't ship anything in general. So weird and entitled over something that should just be a bit of dumb fun.

I think this is why I liked Futaba more before she joins the phantom thieves than after. Her arc about being a guilt ridden neet who needs help exorcising her demons by blackmailing the cast was fun. Then she joins the cast and despite being socially maladjusted, immediately starts mouthing off to everyone and talking all the time. Her social link was boring too. It’s like you can be interesting until you join the cast, at which point you must be prepared to turn into a blushing uwu girl.

No. 2054351

Same, the contrast before and after her dungeon was too big for it seem believable. I like Ann a lot and her arc happens early enough that she can grow for the rest of the game but her confident was a waste of time except for the rank where Shiho shows up but since the writers came up with way too many playable characters she and Ryuji get overshadowed pretty quickly. The cast would have been a lot better if you removed Makoto, Haru and the new OC donut steel waifu from Royal, and if you made Futaba show up earlier instead so she could get better gradually instead of just needing a few days to go from a PTSD ridden neet to the most extroverted character in the team.
