    babiker got a reaction from Ramaladni in Anti-Feminism in VNs   
    Meh, the whole sexist/feminist thing irks me to begin with. Especially when it comes to games. Recently, this huge incident I'm sure you've all heard of happened in the Western Video game world, that started questioning if games are sexist, and how feminists were being "abused" for standing up for their rights or something.
     
    Anyway, my point is: Games, like any form of entertainment, are designed to satisfy the fantasies of their target audience. Especially Visual Novels. Thus, I don't see why or how portraying women the way most men fancy them as being wrong. Visual Novels are nothing more than a fantasy, and if you think real people should fit your fantasies, then you have some big issues...
     
    Men are portrayed pretty unrealistically in many romantic novels targeted at women. But I see that as only natural, I mean that's why people go to imaginary world, right? To see a world that can satisfy whatever desire they have. Calling them out on that because they're "sexist" sounds pretty ridiculous to me.

    A small slip, but you didn't actually drop suddenly in your version. It's right there  
    Great pot tho. I've considered editing bad fantranslations for a while, and your simple and organized format is a good way to go about it. Looking forward for more to see more

    babiker got a reaction from Caio000 in To 'Love', and to be 'In Love'   
    Wow, modern people not completely bashing and demonizing arranged marriage, and even implying that it might just work at times...?! Oh, how times have changed. I can remember all the endless arguments I've had with people regarding this subject. It makes me happy to see that not everyone is willing to dismiss arranged marriage as a barbaric, out of date method that never has and never will work.
    Needless to say, I'm a strong believer in arranged marriages. Not only do I think they work, I dare say they're just outright better and healthier for a long term relationship than the standard date>girlfriend>marry-after-a-few-years formula we have going on right now. Most people just don't know how normal arranged marriages work. Just like the guy's father in the article, who dismissed the first two girls he met and settled for the third, you're not "forced" to accept who you're arranged with.  If things really don't work out, then you can always divorce.
    Another thing the article mentions is patience, which imo is really undervalued these days in relationships. Especially in the later stages, it's even more important than love, since at that point you've been long enough to start questioning if you actually like your partner (unless you're exceptionally blind).  It's the real test, to prove that you're willing to put up with your partner after all the spicy time is done.
    But enough from me, after all this is all based on my own personal observations- like many of you I don't have much real experience with romantic relationships. All I can do is hope that, when the time comes, I'll find a nice partner I'm willing to put up with

    God damnit, why couldn't I live just a little longer... :c
    While others are complaining about how different these characters are from their real life counterparts, I'd complain this is too close to reality for me. I'm always within arms reach of victory, yet it always slips at the last second. FeelsBadMan
    But rip that, let's hope hope Kaguya at least gets some Karma payback w
