@JGoldman10,
You do display certain behaviours associated with being a closet, but I'm not going to speculate any further it's not my place and I'm not accusing you of anything.

I remember you devoting a lot of time to your desire for Chinese women, which isn't a good idea. The racism in China is quite upsetting, the kid was there for a year and taxi drivers often refused to pick up someone if they were black, and one Chinese student said the Nigerian students he was associating with would murder him.

If you are asexual then your behaviour is also outside the norm, and doesn't really fit in with the go forth and multiply parts of the Bible. It also suggests you have a lower sex drive than normal so really can't appreciate what it's like to have a high sex drive.

Asexual people also suffer from discrimination, so you shouldn't really be pushing for more intolerance.

Quote:
Whilst social awareness is growing, asexuality is still not widely recognised, and prejudice against asexual people remains largely unexamined. The little research that there is in this area has uncovered strong bias against asexual people. Relative to heterosexual people, and even to lesbian, gay and bisexual people, asexual people were found to be the target of more prejudice, avoidance and discrimination. Of all the sexual minorities studied, asexual people were the most dehumanised, viewed as “machine-like”- cold and emotionless. This demonstrates the need to address anti-asexual bias and that asexual people are at risk of experiencing violence, abuse and discrimination.

@izzythepush,
I haven't done that in years. I do like White women and Asians.

If only our OP could... you know... look in a dictionary sometime.

And what about how female characters are presented in superhero comics? Don't you think there's a double standard?

That can be a terrible thing. And many people in the comics industry are working on removing this outdated and vile thinking and bringing comics into the 21st century.

I suspect you have a great deal of self-contemplation on your own hatemongerish (tm pending) outdated and vile thinking as well.

@Olivier5,
I know that. People carry on if girls are women are objectified and sexualized, but not if they are male characters.

I was offended by seeing two males kissing each other. Some people prefer to see two females doing that. Does making them female and kissing each other any less abhorrent and perverted?

People provide fanservice when they focus on female character's butts and bosoms, and crotches.

I've never seen comics provide any gratuitous crotch shots of any male characters.

You don't think there's a double standard?

It's based on Robert Walpole, Britain's first prime minister who gave away lots of well paid jobs/sinecures to family members. If Bob's your uncle you're doing very well.


"Bob's your uncle" is a way of saying "you're all set" or "you've got it made." It's a catch phrase dating back to 1887, when British Prime Minister Robert Cecil (a.k.a. Lord Salisbury) decided to appoint a certain Arthur Balfour to the prestigious and sensitive post of Chief Secretary for Ireland.

@Olivier5,
Speaking of double standards, how does an image like this make you feel?:

How would you feel if this was a male character in the same position?

@izzythepush,
I asked God to TAKE MY DRIVE AWAY AND KEEP ME TILL I GET MARRIED. That's what makes me asexual. That's not gay.

There is nothing wrong with that- I do not want to sin.

I like the "spandex-clad butt". It shows some self-loathing ability by the authors.

I can't tell if you're being serious or facetious.

I think you missed the point of the post.

You don't think that image is SEXIST?

You are sinning, you're spreading hate and intolerance. You're doing the exact opposite of what Jesus said you should do.

That's major league sinning.

If you can't tell, it's usually safe to bet on 'facetious', as far as my posts are concerned.

The image is clearly meant to be sexy, but I don't see it as sexist.

@Olivier5,
Again, I think you're missing the point. You can clearly see how Power Girl's butt is spread in that image. If that was a male character with his butt spread like that, no one would complain about it.

You didn't answer the question- if a male character's butt was spread like that would you care?

Let me give you a better illustration:



Now do you see what I mean by a DOUBLE STANDARD?

Why is it more "acceptable" to objectify and sexualize female characters in works of fiction but not males?

Some people complain about how female characters are objectified and sexualized.

No. The Bible says Christians are to HATE EVIL (Psalms 97:10, Proverbs 8:13), and to EXPOSE THE WORKS OF DARKNESS (Ephesians 5:11).

@izzythepush,
Tank Girl is British?

I just realized the artist who worked on Tank Girl is the same one for the Gorillaz:

https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48364415986_121cec20ce_b.jpg

Jamie Hewlett is the cartoonist who's created the art for both:

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

I knew there was something familiar about the art style for Tank Girl.

I don't know too much about Tank Girl. I know there was a live-action movie which featured Ice-T and there was a comic book adaptation of the movie.

Glad I never watched the movie or read the book.
