following: no, sorry but i love you anyway | yes | i am now | forever and always love
((Again, you are lacking cultural context. In Japan, nobody, and I repeat, NOBODY would interprete Naoto as trans*, except maybe for the sake of character exploration (Or a joke, but that’s something *I* find insensitive and do absolutely not approve of.
People like Naoto EXIST in Japan. I have seen them and I have seen stories about them. Women, who hide their gender, Mulan-style, because the bullying and suppression in everyday life got to them. Some of them really WANT to live their femeninity, but CAN’T, because that would mean having to deal with customers making sexist remarks about them while shopping, or their collegues harrasing them on the work place, negating all the work they do.
Did you know that one of the lawsuits against Capcom that recently brought up a stirr in the videogame community was filed by an adult woman who was almost bullied into attempting suicide TWICE, simply for being a woman working in the videogame branche? I know. I translated the lawsuit for a friend of mine. And what I read in there was horrifying. In Japan, the horrors that many people go through in America for being anything other but straight and cis are still reality for straight, cis women. Even if you don’t believe it, that’s the fact of the matter.
Do not talk about a Japanese Medium was if it was American. If Persona 4 had been written by an American Person in an American context, then, YES, Naoto’s story would have a wholly different context and make not a whole lot of sense and would just make me scratch my head.
But this story was written in JAPAN. By a JAPANESE team of writers. You cannot apply Americano-centric cultural logic to it. If you do that, then you are erasing the entire background the game was written with. Naoto’s story is not cissexist, it’s about the very, VERY sexist Japanese society and how it pressures BOTH genders into forcing them to accept such strictly defined genderroles, most of us western people would likely break down under them.
Why else do you think Chie is the only character in P4U, who’s title “Carnivore who’s discarded womanhood” is not being displayed as her title during battles, but was switched with her announcement-title, “Spunky Dragon with Deadly legs”? Because her title, implying that she will never be a “true woman” for being *somewhat* tomboyish is considered INCREDIBLY hurtful in Japanese society. Likewise, Naoto got a title fully unrelated to her gender, because it would probably just have been TOO cruel to dig the fact that she’s “neither fish nor flesh” in the eyes of Japanese society back up. Because Naoto does not want to be a “Japanese Woman”, even though she is a woman. Because a “Japanese Woman” can never be a “Detective” and a Detective can NEVER be a “Japanese Woman”. Only “Sorta a woman, and that’s odd, what kind of weirdo feminist creepy person is that?”.))
My face when I play this game… and when I’m taking a final.
After seeing the pokeball meme, I realized it has been a while since I have made one! So here is the Pokemon badge meme, something I quickly made up for all to enjoy!
Have fun! c:
