>the current state of western women has pushed more men to homosexuality.
The current state of western women has pushed more men to reclusiveness seems more correct to me.

It might be part of it for feminine men, perhaps some porn fetishes helps self-indoctrinate themselves to lean more that way and traps in anime doesn't help either. From what I've read I think it's more the effect of declining testosterone (around the world but more so in western countries) and increasing estrogen which makes them born gay e.g. gay brains are similarly shaped as females instead of straight males. Something should be done about this.

Picture related can be opened as archive, it has the two books shown on the image.

The way I see shit like this, is that it only supports piracy in the long run. Funimation is desperate despite keeping up appearances, not that their dubs were anything more than slightly longer abridged series anyway.

They don't pick up all airing shows because of licensing. Netflix keeps taking advantage of studios with "deals" and end up killing the hype because of their shitty practices and refusing to simulcast (Hisone definitely is going to be completely missed by the majority of Anglophones because of this, just look at the lukewarm LWA reception).

>>505
CR is just doing what it thinks is profitable, and consulting with this "anime fe#ini#st" for now. There is nothing indicating that they will not listen to her more in the future, especially if titles become labeled as "problematic" in the future (I.e.: not passing her ideological litmus test). The fact that she is only judging these shows based on their merits in her ideology is very telling of what the future may look like, and how sanitized things will be if anime becomes more mainstream and "normalized".

In essence, the issue isn't just limited to licensors and localizers and streaming platforms. It has wider reaching implications for the subculture at large, and there is a very real possibility that the efforts of bullshit Western culture imperialists will have an effect on the anime industry. Be on the lookout or your backlogs will be the only thing you have left. In the end, the decision lies with the people who think they can make money by doing something differently.

Food production is a big issue for the world. Food shortages, booming population, deteriorating croplands are usually the reason for the collapse of many earlier civilizations... And now the whole world is feeling the same kind of pressure. It's hard to feed so many people. I read a book called "full planets, empty plates" by lester brown, i thought it was a good book... it has a sense of dread and urgency, makes me feel like the problem is beyond our saving.

There are too many humans on earth. The eternal struggle to reproduce. How do you feel about all of this?

There are ways to combat the overpopulation crisis without comitting crimes against humanity.

Bangladesh and India incentivize sterilization procedure among the worst-off segments of their population. The programs are expensive, but the poorest of the poor get money just for not continuing the cycle.

Numerous charities assist with developing agriculture in the Third World, getting small farms going and experimenting with maximizing the caloric output of arable and semi-arable land. Heifer Project, Trees That Feed Foundation, etc.

And of course, the LGBT rights movement has made strides worldwide, we cannot know the actual percentage of the population that is queer people but if we get them all out and proud they won't be shitting out babies in lavender marriages and similar fuckups. Queer families are planned families.

Other contributing factors are more difficult to fix. Cash crop agriculture like soybeans, cocaine, and chocolate are taking up vital land that could be used for staple foods such as yams, rice, and breadfruit.

Racist and fundamentalist movements still prioritize excessive reproduction in order to maximize demographic strength (see: Quiverfull) the result of which are financially and psychologically overwhelmed parents that fail to pass on their ideology despite the long term human cost of unwanted children.

Warfare has slowed to a crawl, reducing body count without reducing human suffering. More buildings get smashed, more civilians go hungry, more refugees wander the Earth to much controversy, only for campaigns to be smaller and less bloody, removing the only upsides to war: solidarity in national identity and the check of population growth.

I think the biggest problem is going to be the spread of "the western diet" with the increasing wealth in poorer countries, which means an increase in consumption of meat. We're already seeing it with China, but if projections are correct then it is going to spread to places like India(possibly, religion may effect it there), South-east Asia, and Africa in the coming decades. Meat is far less efficient than crops and vegetables, not to mention that livestock are major producers of greenhouse gasses.

>does drooling over anime cuties empower feminists?
They might be delusional and insane, but "anime cuties" display a type of female that psychotic feminists hate. Those girls are in good physical shape, they're well liked with good personalities and style, and purity to match.
Feminists tend to be fat whorish entitled nasty bitches. What anime girls represent is 'possible' for women, but it takes a lot of work to stay fit and take care of yourself among other things. Most of them are too far gone anyway to ever be decent people. So instead it's easier to just lash out with bitterness and hate, call anime girls whores and unrealistic standards, and claim the men who like them are pathetic sexist pigs virgin losers ect. If they had it their way they'd ban anime, or make all anime women masculine fat sluts with shaved heads.
>> No. 500 [Edit]
No. Women hate being compared to idealized females, real people are imperfect and ultimately shitty.
This is also why fujoshi almost never have boyfriends, noone can match up to what is designed to be perfectly attractive instead of to function in the real world. Men resent competing with fictional characters, same as women.
The queers seem to be more of a mixed bag, as usual. Some gay men read yaoi or crossdress cosplay, I've seen some lesbians identify with lesbian characters.
2D girls and guys are closer to religious idols than people, they are superior yet incomplete imitations of people, that's why some people adore them and other people mock them.
Whatever happens with this supposed Animegate nonsense, the truth will be buried in insults, attacks, and lies from both sides.

Started off a mainstream liberal like my mother, but grew attracted to Communist ideology in my preteen years.
I remained socially liberal and otherwise militaristic during my teenage years as a National Socialist.
I attempted to create a more individualist alternative to Fascism inspired by Primitivism when I was a high school senior, after I got over the Antisemitism nonsense.
I then flirted with Anarchism when I first started getting into Punk Rock in my late teens, but grew disillusioned with the Anarcho scene very quickly.
Now I am in my early 20s and I am a cynic and a pragmatist, mainly concerned with human rights, individual liberties, and the struggles of my particular demographic groups over any sort of all-encompassing worldview. You can't change human nature, but you can exploit it to get things done.

elitist liberal, but also monarchist (I was 10) -> conservative libertarian -> alt-right -> whatever the fuck I am now
Constant are a devotion to environmentalism and to eugenics, as well as a hieratic notion of virtue & beauty, often combined with explicit polytheism.
I suppose those continue to place me in the Pentti Linkola fraction of the far right, but I don't see much benefit to identifying with a minority of a persecuted minority.
In any case I don't think any global Cæsar will be able to emerge and restrain mankind. I despair of Lilin's salvation and can only pray "Do it again, Lady Sachmis!"

That means the LDP has been in government ever since 1945, with only maybe two exceptions.

DPJ is a laughing stock for a reason.

If the opposition were hellbent on making your country a defenseless shithole that can't recover from the disasters that the country is known to be prone to, you would vote for the only party with a competent track record, too, instead of the Yoko Ono style whackjobs who live in some sort of land where putting flowers in QBZ-95 rifles does anything.

I find it interesting how the LDP is practically guaranteed victory but tax money still has to be spent to put on the show of Democracy.
Mottai nai, yet they have to do it because of the foreign, military enforced constitution.


Also just saw this:
>From the 1950s through the 1970s, the United States Central Intelligence Agency spent millions of dollars attempting to influence elections in Japan to favor the LDP against more leftist parties such as the Socialists and the Communists,[14][15] although this was not revealed until the mid-1990s when it was exposed by The New York Times.[16]

as an example on how things never play out the way they do in the movies, here's the ending to the original 1964 Willy Wonka as is followed by how it would play out in real life

>Willy Wonka movie

Grampa Joe: it's an elevator

Wonka: it's a wonka vator! an elevator can only go up and down, but the wonka vator can go up and down, side to side, long ways and short ways, and up and till now I've pressed them all! except that one! go ahead Charlie!

now lets see how that same scene would play out if Willy Wonka had Aspergers syndrome

>Willy Wonka real life

you: it's a wonka vator! an elevator can only go…

WARNING: Please refrain from misusing the quoting function in the future. I understand it's tempting to use it as a way to "format" a post, but it's still an infraction.

With that said, and taking the mod hat off, I don't really get the point you're trying to bring across regarding Asperger's, specially since there's little to debate. Fiction in general is hardly ever realistic so it'd be silly to expect such property from a children's novel, specially a fantastical one where a chocolate factory has a river of chocolate in it. To double down, expecting a children's book to be a guideline for how to behave towards people with mental issues is unrealistic at best and entitled at worst.
>it's the responsibility of society... that these types of societal problems don't stick around for future generations of Aspergers to suffer through
Society doesn't owe you nor others with Asperger's anything. It's not society's fault you have such issues and it's certainly not its responsibility to pander to you. Regardless, it'd be nice people in general were less adamant to keep a double-standard regarding personality and developmental disorders where they are embracing of some yet despondent to others.
>clean up your act and your reward is a brighter tomorrow.
Only eugenics will achieve that.

From both personal experience and observation of those with aspergers doing something similar to people on TV or even flat out mimicking word for word something a character said they end up getting a completely different reaction in real life then what the character on TV got, that's what the op scenario is meant to convey.

>flat out mimicking word for word something a character said they end up getting a completely different reaction
Yes, I understood that. What I meant was that you may not think it but it would have a different reaction with people that don't have Asperger's as well. Conversations in media are scripted, written in particular way to achieve a particular goal. They don't generally follow a realistic scenario. I don't consider myself normal, but I'm relatively certain I don't have Asperger's, and yet the scene would have been vastly differently as well if I was opposite to the Wonka character.

Did you realise things like piracy and open-software are the tools of, and propogated by, anarcho-communists?
I would guess most people don't, yet lots are ardent defenders of such things but they probably do not even know why. I was once like that myself.


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anarchist_communism

'Anarchist scholar Uri Gordon has said that:
"the collaborative development of free software like the Linux operating system and applications such as OpenOffice clearly approximate an informational anarchist communism. Moreover, for anarchists it is precisely the logic of expropriation and electronic piracy that enables a radical political extension of the cultural ideals of the free manipulation, circulation and use of information associated with the "hacker ethic" (Himanen 2001). The space of illegality created by P2P (peer-to-peer) file-sharing opens up the possibility, not only of the open circulation of freely-given information and software as it is on the Internet today, but also of conscious copyright violation. The Internet, then, enables not only communist relations around information, but also the militant contamination and erosion of non-communist regimes of knowledge—a technological "weapon" to equalise access to information, eating away at intellectual property rights by rendering them unenforceable.[129]'

I'm from the US but I've always hated the way people treat the concept of communism as objectively bad and the word itself like something foul. People here think no other system can work because humans are naturally selfish and greedy, ignoring the idea that they've simply been raised to be that way. Like programmed machines people point to Russia as the best and only needed example of why communism wont work, while conveniently forgetting what happened to Rome which had capitalist features and was just as big and powerful then as the US is today.

>Clearly computer nerds can't accept the fact that they have been the 'useful idiots' for Anarcho-Communists.
We're "idiots" because we've created an environment where we can now start IT-related businesses without paying thousands of dollars for shitty software packages? Interesting.

Having an Open Source software infrastructure isn't any more "communistic" than having a system of roads that anyone can use.

I actually hate it when Commies take credit for Open Source. Communist governments didn't do shit to support Linux compared to corporations like Intel. The Copyleft principle also cannot function in anarchy, because it relies on an established court system and the rule of law to enforce the terms of the GPL.

As far as political groups go, the chief beneficiaries of open source software and related technologies at the moment are nationalists, since they are the only group that is actively being fought by most globalist corporations.

For example, websites like counter-currents.com and theRightStuff.biz are all banned from PayPal, and the Institute for Historical Review is even being refused service by all major credit card companies. So they all ended up relying on Bitcoin and other crypto-currencies for donations and payments.
Daily Stormer was the first website in US history to be kicked off of its own .com domain without hosting any content that is illegal under US law, so they went on TOR so people could still read the site.
When you look at how Twitter, Facebook, Cloudflare and most webhosting companies kick (white) nationalists off of their services all the time, it would actually be conceivable that people would start getting locked out of their iPhones and Windows computers for their political beliefs. Can't do that with Open Source systems though, so Microsoft and Apple aren't going to risk this.
