This makes absolutely no fucking sense at all when you consider that Japanese culture is cultural appropriation. They explore and cherry pick elements from other cultures and then experiment with integrating those aspects into their own culture.
For example at this point school "sailor uniforms" are considered entirely Japanese... but they're not, they're BRITISH, they culturally appropriated the form, then continually adapted and improved upon it to create new and unique renditions.
American culture is actually very similar. We have a culture of cultural appropriation. Why on earth these crazy leftists thing it's somehow a bad thing... well, honestly, the only answer I can come up with is... they're segregationists. And they're segregationists because they're racists.
If you are against cultural appropriation... you are a racist.
Even if the form is parody/satire... it's still okay, because stereotypes aren't funny because they're true, they're funny because they're COMEDIC EXAGGERATIONS of the truth.
Really, the only form which could be considered bad would be in the realm of propaganda created with the intended purpose of inciting dehumanization, hatred or violence... and even most of that isn't illegal under the 1st amendment, it's just considered to be in really bad taste (like that guy who makes all those overtly racist political cartoons).
So they hired a leftist nutball whose only real interest was to disrupt and destroy their own employer and they were promptly fired as a result... I don't really see a "story" here, but if there is one... well, it's a "cautionary tale".
Best coverage of this shit I've seen so far.
It just occurred to me, the sci-fi/fantasy action book I'm working on, "God Complex"... it has no MacGuffins... at all.
Instead the focus is centered entirely on uncovering mysteries, the nature of reality, exploring oneself and fighting against largely unknown threats.
The only aspect that even comes close to a MacGuffin is the pursuit of expanding their powers and figuring out ways to use their powers in tandem to tackle new threats, which in turn need to be invested/explored.
MailChimp? More like... MailChump. These guys are basically the China of e-mail options... if you don't mind their head up your ass 24/7 and the mass execution of e-mail account for any form of wrong-think... yeah, these are the guys for you!
One rando tweet from one rando leftist on Twatter making one rando unsubstantiated, libelous accusation and... they'll burn your entire account like Hitler enjoyed burning books.
These people did not grow organically, they're a technocratic enterprise being funded by bullshit and big leftist donors and destined for collapse. If you put your money into this company... you're gonna wind up looking like a chump too.
So this guy is trying to say it's okay if he rapes little girls so long as he LARPs as a little girl while raping them... tha'fuck... THAT MAKES IT EVEN WORSE!!!
I mean getting raped, that's bad enough, but imagine the person raping you is role playing as an eight year girl WHILE raping you... that is just... that is on a whole other fuckin level of degenerate derangement.
This is the left, this is what they've created, this monster molesting children while waving the banner of "gender identity".
This fuckin shit needs to stop. Make sure you vote for Trump! Make sure you vote for Trump for no other reason than we get another 4 years of conservative judge nominations so this shit can't spread!
Actually, when I say "I don't see color.", what I mean is, "Your glaring stupidity is so blinding I can't see anything!"
It doesn't even make any sense, not on any level, because nothing is inherently an advantage.
An advantage is something that you have to create yourself, something you have to WORK TOWARDS by maximizing your strengths, minimizing your weaknesses and planning ahead.
Being born rich can be a detriment just as being born poor can be an advantage because adversity and hardship can actually be useful tools to building a better/stronger you, where as being born on easy street will inherently make you weak/soft. You might have more capital/resources... but without being forged in the fire of adversity those resources may do you very little good. Everything has positives aspects and negative aspects.
Take, say, Donald Trump, who took the money he got from his parents as a rich kid and eventually made BILLIONS vs someone like Brianna Wu, who took the money he got from his parents... and basically flushed it all down the toilet.
Two rich kids... one becomes a billionaire and the president... the other is an abject failure by every possible metric imaginable.
You're wrong Tim, being born something is not an "advantage". An "advantage" is something YOU CREATE by maximizing your strengths and minimizing your weaknesses. Being born rich can be just as much a detriment as being born poor depending upon the person and how the INDIVIDUAL works towards whatever goals they might have.
