Not only is this just creating 'inclusivity' out of liberal bootlicking, but it's also an erasure of a distinct Japanese cultural aspect and an attack on gay and feminine men as implying them as "just being closet transies!" I don't care about Guilty Gear, never had an interest in that, but if you're going to make a retarded thread like this, I might as well disrupt the back-patting echochamber forming here by your strawman OP.

Nobody is going to give this post the consideration it deserves, because everyone is high on being upset at reactionaries and their shitty takes.

They could have made literally any other character trans, though. Yet they picked the ONE and EXPLICIT queer character they had prior. Even at that low bar this isn't progress, just a shift.

 No.22442

>>22440
>progress
You're still acting like this change is some attempt at lbgtq+ activism rather than what it really is: writers in japan deciding not to concede to western conservatives, skipping the censorship part of the localization process.
These characters aren't static, to include them in a new game is to make their story progress. Do you think Bridget herself would consider what random people on the internet would think of her when thinking about her own gender and it's presentation? No, so it would be unrealistic to write that way. This was a natural progression of the story. Good writing doesn't stray from offending people.

 No.22446

>>22442
I don't think Bridget thinks at all, because she is a fictional character that is written by writers to be the way she is. Which was my point.

>writers in japan deciding not to concede to western conservatives

Or, instead, are conforming to what they (correctly) perceive to be a popular topic in the West.

The bla-bla about "(un)realistic writing" (lol) is neither here nor there. She is written by people at the end of the day, who make their choices.

>attempt at lbgtq+ activism

They don't need to make an attempt. What they do have consequences in the real world, desired or no. The decision they made further obscures an already fringe queer group. And for what? To appeal to dominant perception that it is better for a character to conform to gender roles?
THAT is reactionary, even if subtlety so.
And I will remind you: they could have chosen ANY OTHER character to come out as trans, but they didn't.

>>22442
>writers in japan deciding not to concede to western conservatives, skipping the censorship part of the localization process
Except that is explicitly not the case, the japanese writers have no influence on this "traps are trans" nonsense.
Also LMFAO at these games being aimed at "Western Conservatives"
>These characters aren't static
They have established character traits and identities
>to include them in a new game is to make their story progress
No that's not necessary at all for established characters that have had their story arcs and moreover it's just promoting the /pol/ meme that liberals seem to idiotically support that 'fags are closet traniz'
>Do you think Bridget herself would consider what random people on the internet would think of her when thinking about her own gender and it's presentation
LMFAO again at this
>Good writing doesn't stray from offending people
Good writing also doesn't intentionally go out of its way for a pointless character change of their existing identity unless there's been a paradigm shift, that is bad writing and bad writing also can offend people.(USER WAS BANNED FOR THIS POST)

No fucktard, until recently media didn't give a fuck about honestly obscure Jap games and by the time they did, the translators starting doing this bullshit mistranslation.

No, I argued the exact opposite, you dumb fuck
>blame to subcontractors like companies don't have choice but to use the translators that insert liberal idpol
FTFY, also imagine defending corporate
Since you're a speedreader see vid related.
Also Traps are male characters who pass as female and make you think they're girls whether they're trying or not; if a male character that looks too masculine to pass crossdresses, that's not a trap. They are not "trans" in any sense other than transvestite and pushing this "I'm actually a girl" nonsense is just Western liberal twitter/tumblr weebs desperately self-inserting and creating lengthy nonsense "arguments" to 'prove' their projection is "canon" and at this point either act in bad faith as translators or have shit-fits on the internet that push local translators to "use de pronouns"

I don't give a fuck about this drama, it's not really a concern for me since I don't play guilty gear or shit like it, but defending this obvious change for the sake of pandering to a liberal audience (instead of, ya kno, creating an actual trans character that is intended as such and not just translators mucking about with their liberal western white saviouresque misinterpretations) is nothing short of defending burger porkies and entitled middle class liberals that enable said burger porkies. As seen in the screencap posted before, /pol/ and /a/ aren't 'angry'. They're not raging out on social media, like the liberals on nitter do - ranting about how "this character is totally trans guyz!" and gushing about it amongst each other in their echo-chambers. I don't like /pol/, they're retarded hypocrites that like futa and traps and say NIG because they think its funny and "shocking", going on rage spiels about gommies and other shit, but in this instance, they're not the screechingly vocal minority dieing on some hill of a videogame played by a couple thousand autists in an anime community of millions.

TL;DR: The people blowing this dumb shit out of proportion are the liberals that made the change to start with and are trying to defend themselves from a boogieman they expected to be riling up, but isn't really cohesively existing. It's just shit-stirring to provoke drama

trans people really do be living rent-free in all of your minds.

 No.22484

Don't play guilty gear, I remember looking up Bridget's story 8 years ago when traps were becoming a thing and ED was spamming "everyone's gay for bridget". I think at least a big minority's issue with Bridget being trans has nothing to do with acceptance and more to do with it conflicting with the character's history. I think people would have minded much less if any of the other OG traps turned out to be trans (Watarase Jun, Kinoshita Hideyoshi, etc) or literally anyone who didn't have a backstory of being forced into being a femboy in the first place.
