Politics is full of people who are proud of their hypocrisy. It becomes more potent when the ideology being promoted is incredibly extreme.


I wouldn't even say it's necessarily an extreme thing so much as a separation between goal oriented politics and lifestyle oriented politics.

Nazis remind me of tankies, as they demand free speech rights for themselves, before taking it away from everyone else.

That's literally everyone except classical liberals.
The same people who say they promote free speech but oppose " hate speech" are just as hypocritical.

It also helps that a lot of people get called Nazis and have their livelhoods ruined by people who cliam to hate Nazis for their reppression of free expression.

Everyone wants freedom, for their faction.

That's politics in a nutshell.

Even classical liberals, they just see allowing free speech to more people as a means of maintaining it for themselves.

Every Fascist in history was censored before they got in power and censored their censors.

Goal Oriented politics are aimed at achieving a particular goal. For example, Nazis want to exterminate all the 'lesser' people. That's a goal, they don't particularly have a guiding way of life to go with that goal.

Lifestyle oriented politics typically instead focus on ways of life and guiding principles of that life. It's not focused on Grand Earth changing goals but on enabling people to live in a certain manner.

Trans women and "traps"? While some femboys might call themselves "traps", it seems to me like most self-described "traps" are trans women.

I see a rather even mix, but in the context of the "are traps gay?" meme it's specifically in reference to anime "femboys", the, uh, group I guess most frequently called "traps".

Source on these femboys more often than not being trans-women? I am a man of considerable culture and never really picked up on that. The only one that comes to mind is from Steins Gate. I’ve always figured that they were ccis lads that just liked being fem. I can relate to that, somewhat.

I mean the other way is to just encourage miscegenation. So long as Population A is significantly higher than Population B, then in a few generations, Population B is magically gone.

Of course racists are unlikely to like that solution.

-ah, there it is.
I knew it was coming (because I know your Youtube preferences). Really, this attitude is just Western audiences trying to claim they know the character better than the writers, which is pretty shitty all things considered. A good rule of thumb if it's not explicitly stated in canon is to see what Japanese audiences see the character as: they have the full cultural context and potentially resources we don't, so checking Pixiv tags can be enlightening.

The only time audiences trying to claim they know the character better than the writers is when they pull a JK Rowling, but that's an exceptionally rare circumstance almost not seen out of Rowling herself.

Almost every time, that's precisely what they are. There can be degrees of ambiguity, especially if you take things completely out of context, but it's usually clear if they're just effeminate men.
Typically the "sources" for this "information" are cherry picked quotes, circumstances, or just outright fabrications made by whoever is making the claim.

Yeah, these people love to erase the gay and those who don't fit into traditional gender roles of dress or act by trying to claim they're "actually" trans.

Hell, don't even have to be gay half the time.

I find it funny how Westerners like to assume a trap's gender identity just because they dress like a chick. There are plenty who just like to look feminine while still being dudes. Hell, I know people on NS and IRL who are that way.

That, and I'm pretty sure I've never watched an anime with a trap where they explicitly stated that they were trans, personally. There are probably some that do, but for the most part? Nah.

The ones that give pleb-tier leftubers cerebral hemorrhages.

[citation needed]

Not to mention those anime "femboys", more often than not, are trans women written by people who don't quite get how to describe them as such,

Saika Totsuka from Oregairu, trap character whose most famous line is "I'm a boy."
Hideyoshi Kinoshita from Baka to Test, trap character who insists he's a guy.
Hime Arikawa from Himegoto, trap forced to crossdress, definitely a boy.
Rui Ninomiya from Gatchaman, boy who crossdresses.
Haku from Naruto, effeminate boy.
Mariya Shidou from Mariaholic, boy who pretends to be a girl at a Girls' School.
Felix from Re:Zero, boy who crossdresses.

These are some of the more famous examples.
Also, friendly reminder that Donkey Kong, Solid Snake and John Romero all said "trans rights", so cis gamers are cancelled and cis otakus are next. Hail Sobek!

Metal Gear is dead and John Romero is a hack so no.
