Like I said earlier, it's easier for queer people to see similarities in characters and note that they may in fact be not-straight-cisI REALLY HATE POKEMON!, post: 1545207, member: 18119 wrote:Shipping is just basically fan fiction, right? R34 has every variable covered, then, so that would be a non-issue. I can't even safely look for neat Death Note pictures on Google Images without sifting through a billion Kira x L trash.
By "stealing" I mean trying to wedge LGBT themes into characters, like the site I linked to:
Blizzard is notoriously anti-gay. They will never, EVER say any named character is outright gay. Their #lovewins twitter post was literally a fist taken from Hearthstone literally to cash in on the Supreme Court ruling. It isn't a matter of "oh, no, we actually screwed up on this character's name even though the players started making theories", it was beyond knee-jerk to make it known that the character in question was totally a straight cis character.Isn't Blizzard allowed to clarify their characters? Why do you celebrate the possibility of Samus being trans but don't approve of Blizzard doing exactly what Nintendo did? That seems unfair. I personally don't think either company should have done so but that's just me.
Meanwhile, like I said, they never actually made proper amends about the comments of Samus, so fair is fair we're keeping Samus a trans woman.
haha look at this nerd trying to compare his DBZ knowledge to me WHEN DID YOU EVER OWN THE COMPLETE KAI BLU-RAY SET YEAH CHECKMATEFans can interpret things as they like, I know I do. That's part of the fun. Canon is something else entirely though. Kinda like Yamcha; everyone has it in their mind he is weak, it's a big joke now, but he actually isn't, and that's canon. He is implied to be at least stronger than Frieza's first form (Frieza Saga). That's me trying to squeeze a DBZ reference in so pardon me if it only makes half sense and isn't as related as I want it to be, haha.
This has been brought up before somewhere, but the thing about fan-theory is that sometimes the creators take it so seriously they decide to implement it instead. It's actually a great exercise for the writers because if they had something else in mind now they have to write to balance in the new knowledge, and they find it challenging yet fun.
How does it make her better? For starters, it shouldn't make her worse. Remember the whole "Adam" thing is considered one of the lowest points in Metroid history. Scratch out any romance in Metroid, Samus is this strong woman that traverses entire planets, hunts down space pirates because they piss her off, and saves cute little critters, even the last Metroid that thinks she's its mother, the same species that she absolutely loathes.It's up to the individual to decide what is "worse." The same goes for what makes them "better." From that same site:
I will throw your question back at you. How does this makes Samus better? I heard similar things about The Last of Us, how the game was so much better for having a subplot about gay guys. I mean, really now.
So take out the romance, and Samus is still this badass space-warrior that blasts the crap out of everything. Being trans would be a very minor note but let me tell you, the heroes of early video games were usually made to help young'uns, especially before high school age, to identify with in their endeavors to help humanity. To have a hero like Samus be a gender not like her sex, that would break a lot of insecurity with queer audiences, even if they don't identify as trans. Bravery is one of the most admirable traits in old games, is it not?
