Where does the rumor that anime turns you into a tranny come from? Why do so many people think that?

If awareness/acceptance hasn't been widespread (or has been less widespread), how could anyone possibly know what's proportional?

Not that people wouldn't be confused by social pressure, I'm aware of one youtuber who misidentified their issue as being trans and ended up giving themselves gender dysphoria. But I think that would mean they *didn't* end up as trans.

Are you saying that, in your view, people who have homosexual desires but choose not to act on them aren't homosexual/bi? And analogously, people who may desire it but choose not to transition are not trans?

This. You'd think there was fewer gay people a few decades ago too if you only looked at the number of self-identifying ones.

Btw separate anon to thread progression over here...

You could be anything you wanted by the 80's. I think the difference is in you being told it's good for society. That you're gay or a furry or a MAP; it's positive. "Well if it's not bad for society and it's not hurting anybody, then I guess I'm a furry."

I don't think you're gay in having gay thoughts either. Latent homosexuality is born that way and can seldom help acting that way. You're just somebody who hasn't delineated for whatever reason between varieties of love e.g. Eros, philo, agape etc if you're in that sort of boat. Sometimes it's just immaturity. If the frequency of the thoughts is a daily occurrence, maybe you're gay, but then you could just have an Oxytocin addiction also and manifest that from the halo effect in a man's company.

Same goes for the anon below you - you're more likely autistic than homosex.

I think what is key here is community and not content. Otherwise we would dealing with a lot more trannies from the past. I just really can't believe that anime, in isolation, no matter how girly the content may be that it would convince someone that they are a female. They would need to have this idea from the start or peer pressured into them.

Though I do wonder, if some of the problem comes from the corruption of waifu culture. Like normalfags that just pick some random cute anime girl and call it a waifu. They then get/let themselves be reinforced into the idea that they must embody that form. Which in turn creates some sort of positive feedback loop from interacting with "anime" communities. And through this disingenuity of the relationship, you get the results in all bad traits you usually see in trannies.

The tranny problem is one more of social media or what eventually happens when human cattle interact especially when some bad actors are able to wheel and deal there shit onto the masses.

There's no objective reason why you're wrong. There's also no objective reason why shouldn't stop giving medical attention to the sick and old. Or go back to caveman society where violence is the way any dispute is settled and there's no concept of human rights. Arguing about morality is kind of pointless and ultimately boils down to feelings and empathy.
>> No. 1727 [Edit]
>Or go back to caveman society where violence is the way any dispute is settled
Well at least for this one, there's an argument that avoiding violence is better for the long-term survival of the species as a whole. But that's not really an objective argument since it's based on the belief that there is some "goal" to be reached in the first place.

Questions of ethics/morality only make sense under a given framework, and what framework you use changes what the answers would be. E.g. to most people having children is clearly a "good thing" but under certain branches of pessimism, it's a horrible thing. By default people seem to very loosely work under something like negative consequentialism (they imagine the outcomes of actions as it would affect them), and they might also have spiritual beliefs that they're constrained by.

According to my understanding, I think it's either baboons or chimpanzees for whom, when in heat, the genitalia of the females swells to an enormous size so I don't think the people who have the puffy vulva fetish are closeted gays. I think they're just more animalistic than normal. Just out of curiosity, has anyone here ever been aroused at the sight of a mare's genitalia? I know I have. It's like regular genitalia, but larger.

That's actually how they look on younger girls though, particularly 10-14(maybe later as well). I think it grows out of proportion to the hips and the hips catch up later.

In your own words; what makes women today unbearable?
29 posts and 3 images omitted. Click Reply to view.
>> No. 1720 [Edit]
Arguments about clothes are vain and I don't care very much.

What women have done is get together in New York circa 1848 and decide that they're going to be feminists, and that feminism entails that they're going to be just like men. In being identical to men, they're awarded responsibilities which they are bad at carrying, but refuse to delegate those responsibilities to anybody else even though they're not cut out for them, because they know those around them won't make them pay any accountability. This is also true for men. The difference is that men tend to self-regulate responsibility more, are held to it moreso, and don't latch onto it as though if they let go they'll be worthless and left for dead;- they were already held worthless from the start.

That's the problem. Women make such undesirable company because they're performing a drag act in which they all larp as men. If you got a Thai bride, she would still talk more than a Thai man. She would still use more deceit than a man. But you would not care half as much because she's behaviorally just doing woman things. I don't even care that western women have abandoned traditional beauty. But to have a nurturing element that manifests worse than mine is inexcusable.
>> No. 1728 [Edit]
I got an email from a woman peppered with exclamation points, and I thought "why the hell do they do this". Found an article about it, and as predicted, its explanation is that women are expected to as way of appearing friendly, and basically the patriarchy.

Colleges have more women, in a lot of places they get paid more, they get preferential legal treatment, and every mainstream piece of media puts them on a pedestal, but they STILL go on about that shit.

Anyway, that's not my expectation. I find it annoying and prefer people write like how I do. I don't want to be able to tell a woman wrote something just by reading it. I think that's the real reason why they do it, to communicate that they're a women, which is something they do subconsciously.

Well it's finally here and it's fucking gay. There were two main goals of animegate: to stop censorship of anime/otaku media before it starts, and to cleanse to otaku community of posers and ironic weebs. Both, so far, have not been successful.
Most of the people involved in this movement are posers and ironic weebs. Hell, I actually saw a tweet where these neckbeards, claiming to be a part of animegate, were defending this Stacy from "harassment". So basically, instead of kicking out posers, animegaters are encouraging them and it's fucking frustrating.
The only good thing coming out of this movement is that Vic Mignogna is receiving support after being falsely accused of rape. Other than that, this movement needs to get it's shit together.
I remember that tweet (or tweets rather). I remember everyone in the online community I was a part of, were PISSED and were saying that it was the beginning of the end. Shortly after that tweet, I began seeing normalfags use anime as a social statement by changing their yt icons to anime girls and posing with katanas. Then, anime ops and eds began to skyrocket in views. Where there used to be around one to two million turned into twelve to twenty million. Anime became the "cool kid thing" and it pissed every otaku off because these were the same kinds of people that would kick their ass in highschool for watching anime. And then, of course, this led to companies already beginning to try to sanitize anime to make it PC and easy to swallow.
We wouldn't have to have these online mobs or "gates" if we simply knew how to tell these posers to fuck off. The metal scene in the 80s did a pretty good job of it, see we need to learn from them.

It is? What is? before seeing this thread I don't think I'd have known something called "animegate" existed. In my eyes, not really much has changed lately, so how does this affect anyone side from those keeping close eyes on celebrity twitter accounts or what have you. I still have a real hard time believing anime is the "cool kid thing" now.

I think the only reason left-wing boycotts work is not because little green haired goblins start boycotting you, but because they get all the banks that provide financing to look at boycotting you. Cultures within those banks are all universal, and are all foregone concluded. The co-opting of our financial services is a success. I don't know what we are going to do now.

We hurt budweiser to the tune of a billion dollars income a year, but due to the nature of the corpo we picked all it means is that they will make 14 billion dollars instead of 15 billion dollars.

Anime companies are smaller and can be hurt worse, but ultimately you are not their paymasters; ultimately that job goes to the banks.

>Basically, people who call themselves lolicons even though they aren't pedophiles despite the fact that lolicon and shotacon mean pedophile in Japanese.
I would say the opinion of the Japanese on the "true" meaning of the word is irrelevant. Why assume the Japanese are the ultimate authority on what the word means? It's good to know how the Japanese see the word, but that's only when you're speaking to a Japanese person. Any word, can have any meaning. If a group of people are using it consistently, to convey a specific idea, then that's the meaning, for them. That's just how language works.

Also, what "is" an "ironic lolicon"?

Initially, I would assume an "ironic lolicon" was someone that enjoyed lolicon material, "ironically." They would do so, whilst looking down on it, and maintaining their self-awareness that it's actually bad.
I think the word "irony" here is being used weirdly though. It's more like "A guy that's ironically a lolicon" rather than "A guy that enjoys lolicon with a sense of irony".

And finally, I want to say that that image was confusing. Your post clearly describes the "ironic lolicon" as someone who calls themself a lolicon, despite not being a pedophile, and yet the image argues that the "ironic lolicon" is in fact, truly a pedophile! This was a bad post OP. Up until today, I've been confused every time I saw it.

Not bad, but, unpreferred I think. I think it can work when both parents, despite differing in race, have been raised in the same culture. But yeah, if there's even cultural differences, perhaps, as the wife takes the father's surname, and, as the wife converts to the husband's religion in mixed-religion marriages, perhaps the parents should agree that the children should conform to the father. Perhaps in religion if that's a factor, but definitely in culture. That's my main point.

But yeah, when two races mix, they kind of create a new race, one that doesn't really fit in anywhere. Racemixing will always certainly be the unpreferred option. Acceptable, but not preferred. At the very least, I would hope that those in a mixed-race marriage create many children, because, I think in some sad sense, the siblings only really have each other.

Has anyone else here watched The Boondocks? What do you think about it? In retrospect, it's bizarre that is was ever made at all. A black American makes a satirical comic strip about race relations, black pop culture and politics, and that of all things gets an adult swim adaptation, styled after anime.

It's the kind thing that could have only been made at that specific point in time where American networks were trying to replicate anime, before they gave up on that.

The show pushes boundaries(at least the boundaries of that time) and makes quite of bit of fun of things you wouldn't typically be able to mock black people for. It's done under an interesting lens though.
All of the stereotypical "bad behavior" or tastes associated with black people, are attributed to "ignorance". Ignorance is The Boondocks' favorite word. Ignorance of what exactly, is never specified. What magical piece of knowledge black people are missing is never explained to the audience.

White people on the show are portrayed as caricatures. Either they're blissfully ignorant and unaware of how society works, greedy and morally bankrupt, or they imitate black people. The main antagonist of the show is actually not a white person, but an extreme uncle tom.

It's hard to piece together what exactly the show's overall message is. It's kind of exotic, as you can tell from it's lukewarm, bitter representation of Obama. Not exactly standard liberal propaganda. People have said the creator is a "black nationalist". I don't know anything about that ideology. The show does have some element of self-aggrandizing though. Huey, the main character, is a genius 10 year old who knows kung-fu. He's the show's main mouth piece of reason and has been called a writer self-insert.

So those are my thoughts.

What are your thoughts on genetically modified organism?
6 posts omitted. Click Reply to view.
>> No. 120 [Edit]
I'm not sure about the science of it since it's one of those things that's going to have fudged science on all sides of the issue. So you can't really go off the "facts" since you're just picking facts that already support your kneejerk reaction.

As an idea though? I don't really like them. Every time mankind invents something it seems to result in a great deal of short-term happiness at the cost of long term misery. It's been that way since the industrial revolution. I don't see why GMO's would be any different. They can claim they're safe but how can we know really? Companies are out to make money and if people feel a bit too stressed economically the government will try and kick the ball down the street for the next generation. Borrow from the future so the present won't revolt.

And like >>114 said, we haven't seen any long term studies. They haven't been around long enough, so claiming to know is a bit of a folly.

It depends on what sort of thing you're buying. If you're going for 100% organic, no pesticides, 100% fresh. Then yeah, it's going to cost tons. If you just pick up say, a bag of frozen broccoli it's usually pretty fair.

Unfortunately you don't know if it's GMO or not since requiring a label on GMO products is some sort of great profit killing evil. If they're so great, so safe, why do these companies shirk back at the thought?

You can also get your food cost really low if you're willing to eat tons of dry foods. Like rice/beans/oats.
>> No. 1533 [Edit]
GMOs aren't inherently bad because they're genetically modified (we've been selectively cultivating to induce changes over a longer-timespan for millennia), but rather because genetically modifying them opens up lots of downstream consequences:
* It allows crops to now be "patented." We're in the age of DRMd crops, and you can get sued for growing them without a license.
* Knocking our or inducing gene expression in crops can result in a situation where you're presenting the body with a novel compound (or combination) that it has not adapted to handle. This is less of a risk for minor adjustments (e.g. up-regulating or down-regulating expression), but for more radical changes where you're crossing species liens, it's a definite risk.
* Probably the most significant one: "roundup ready" crops just mean that the crops that you end up eating get doused with more pesticide than they used to. Also almost always they end up prioritizing hardiness over nutrition, so what you're eating is tasteless gloop anyway.

I'm not sure how well that would work, I think we all know why drink driving is a bad idea but it does not stop people.

I suspect people only know it's bad in abstract, and don't really see how specific actions could lead to specific consequences. But then, I really don't understand people; it seems inherently obvious to me that driving inebriated is asking for death.

If people can't be taught then maybe more/better enforcement is a better solution. Though in general I think that just incentivizes people to get better at breaking the rules.
