>In a January 2013 issue of BREAK MAX Magazine, Asano revealed a desire to undergo MTF sex reassignment surgery and suggested that transgender issues could be the focus of an upcoming work.
I don't believe this is real, but what reason would he have for lying?
What about that about that joke about the transvestite in Sayonara PunPun?
Well his new work is being called something along the lines of Mushroom Girl. And we all know what the Japs like to associate mushrooms with.
>And we all know what the Japs like to associate mushrooms with.
So his new manga is about CIS privilege?
well it is a story about a guy's trainwreck of a life
Dicks, it's dicks
Is there anything else known about Ino Asanos private life? I am sure 90% of trannies have been molested as kids or something.
I don't have the manga link but I have Tyrone link
Gender dysphoria is a mental illness.
hiroshima and nagasaki?
mental illness can be caused by experiences
When will you retards realize that cis is not an acronym and does not need to be capitalized like that?
Asano is such a troll and generally strange guy that I honestly don't know if this is serious or not. Neither would be surprising.
I am sorry xir.
Next time I will check my spelling privilege properly.
But he's obviously referring to the Confederacy of Independent Systems from Star Wars.
Well, the only account he follows on his Twitter is Lady Gaga's.
When transsexuals realize they're basically the same as people who believe they're dogs/cats/animals in general
I want that Anon to check his CSI privileged.
welp, shit. its true. he actually went full retard
So his next work will be about someone who can't feel sexual pleasure?
It's about a boy who wants to be a girl so he pays for the operation where they cut his dick off and make a vagina out of it and then he goes into depression because he paid to mutilate his body and kills himself.
nobody cares, only landwhale cunts
> It's real.
What the fuck.
Hasn't he been talking about going forward with it for years already? It's hardly a surprise.
I'm only surprised because his manga give the impression that he understands what a raw deal women get in Japanese society, yet he wants to transition. Then again, publicizing your intent to do so to Twitter and magazine columnists probably means you're not so concerned with passing anyway.
Tastes awfully bitter in this thread.
I believe most of /a/ will hate it since that kid of stuff is only enjoyed in fanservice shit here.
I fucking hate tumblr because if it didn't exist then we would be talking about how he actually managed to become the little girl instead of this social privilege, mental disorders bullshit.
Surgery can't make people little yet.
>I'm only surprised because his manga give the impression that he understands what a raw deal women get in Japanese society
>>>/cgl/ you fat whore. women get treated like goddesses in every society unless they stuff themselves full of food or go for alpha rich guys who are already in a relationship and expect not to be treated like whores.
I guess it depends on your aspirations in life.
I know that this is barely (or, honestly, probably not at all) anime and manga, but I'm curious. To everyone in this thread who dislikes transgendered people, or at least dislikes that aspect of them, could you explain why? This comes up a fair amount now when discussing Asano Inio or female mangaka on /a/, and I want to understand people's beliefs and reasoning surrounding the subject.
Please elaborate beyond, "It's a mental illness," and refrain from expressing any distaste for Tumblr or any beliefs or actions you associate with them. Unless that is the full extent of your reasoning, I guess.
>trying to talk seriously in /a/
how new are you
Oh, it happens.
Post-Tumblr Internet and /pol/ crossboarders
I like to believe that /a/ doesn't give a shit about 3D
also real women are fucking soul sucking demons. 3dpd: not even once.
Punpun was already angsty as fuck
Anyone who liked that but is averse to this is a hypocritical niglord
My dislike about it is that it seems to warp the person around their issue. On the Internet at least, I know two trans in real life and they're cool people.
aspirations? listen, cunt: it is your own fault for being a failure.
with low aspirations women just have to spread their legs to have a secure housing, car and supplies for raising a child for the rest of their life.
with high aspirations there is no greater advantage than being a woman to land a job in a STEM field. companies will take you with a 6 week degree from software development bootcamp just to boost their diversity ratings. if that is any different in japan, just immigrate.
If immigration were that easy, half of /a/ would be living it up in Japan with Ken-sama right now.
Believing you're "really" a woman or man when your biology says otherwise is completely fucking retarded. The only meaningful difference between "male" and "female" is a biological one that stems from how new offspring are created, everything else beyond that is a social construct that defines a 'man' or a 'woman'.
Men can be feminine and women can be masculine. I have no problem with people expressing themselves in a way that's not expected of them, individuals have a right to act how they want. What they DON'T have the right to do is pretend they're something they are objectively not and THEN force other people to agree with them, getting aggressive and trying to shame those who simply tell the truth.
If you want to dress like a woman and wear make-up, go for it. If you want to tell me you ARE a woman, you can fuck off. That's an objective lie. The exception is if you are truly, physically, sexually undefined, but those people are so rare it barely matters - they have actual problems, they're not mentally ill people convinced the greener grass lies beyond placebo surgery.
I'm not surprised in the slightest.
>aspirations? listen, cunt: it is your own fault for being a failure.
Dude, you can't even capitalize, and you assume I'm a woman. Do you want a timestamped picture of my dick or something?
It's just that you talked about "every society" while being obviously blind to any but your own.
>if that is any different in japan, just immigrate
I like traps.
I'm not an expert on the subject by any means, but it's my understanding that transgendered people generally have physically cross-sexed brains. I'm also not convinced that gender identity is entirely learned, though, once again, I'm hardly an expert.
yes, I wouldn't mind seeing a picture of your penis. and don't drag grammar into this, english is my third language.
immigration is actually that easy if you only have the willpower and are ready to leave your family and friends. we live in a globalized world after all.
but even talking about japanese society, there are plenty of chances for women in higher positions.
not that higher positions should say anything about chances in general. I hate to see companies talk about female empowerment for having a female manager, when their entire technology and development department is nothing but males.
you see, women simply don't want to waste years of college just to have a 20% better paying job. because they don't have to. and it's actually better for them. they don't need to show how well they are doing in society to land a partner and reproduce. If I had the chance I would be a househusband too.
It's the thread derailers you should hate.
I immigrated from Russia to Germany with my parents and later to canada (though now I am back). Immigration is not a big deal, especially if you originaly come from a first world country.
This isn't /mra/. Fuck off back to your basement room before your mom catches you writing this claptrap.
>If I had the chance I would be a househusband too
>immigration is actually that easy if you only have the willpower and are ready to leave your family and friends
Well, fortunately, nobody cares about their family and friends, so this is basically a non-issue, yeah.
This thread was never on-topic in the first place. I'm sure it'll 404 soon anyway.
what is mra?
you don't want to browse internet all day and take care of your cute children and in case your working wife wants to divorce you take 50% of her wealth and future alimony for the kids?
We were talking about Japan. If it is easy enough to get out of Russia, it is even easier to get out of Japan.
Madoka dad pls. If I wanted to be a NEET I'd be a NEET, not find some justification for it.
>Well, fortunately, nobody cares about their family and friends, so this is basically a non-issue, yeah.
From most blog threads on /a/ I do indeed get the impression that nobody cares about non-existant friends or family.
As for normal Japanese people, the only trick is not to fucking leave the wife and children behind in Japan. You don't visit the rst of your family daily anyway and friends are replaceable.
It can be learned indeed, but I'm not going to say that it's always entirely the cause, since some people are just wired differently, nothing more. If a woman grows up in a house full of brothers and a father with little other female influence, you will most likely get what is essentially a boy with tits out of the deal. Your environment plays a large part in how you 'identify'.
Sometimes I also think it's just people who take games of pretend to absurd new levels. It's always been a fantasy of mine to be a woman, to wear pretty dresses, have tea parties, and suck millions of cocks and have my cherry busted by some rough gang of thugs. But that's all it is, a fantasy so i can fap and go back to bed. Some other people would take this fantasy and say 'holy shit i think about getting fucked and sucking dicks ALL THE TIME i must be a girl!' and there you go.
It's not out of the realm of belief for people to take shit too far, and transexuals seem to do this a lot, from what i've seen personally.
>nobody ever remembers the Commonwealth of Independent States
I've heard the name is 「きのこのたけのこ」,
that could be read as "Mushroom Girl", but more specifically, it talks about a girl as tall as a mushroom. How's he gonna twist that, I have no idea. I expect something at the level of Girl on the Beach, because sad Asano is best Asano.
You shouldn't read こ as "girl"
Kinoko is a mushroom
Takenoko is a bamboo shoot.
So kinoko no takenoko would roughly translate to
The Mushroom That Was a Bamboo Shoot
which does allude to his transgender issues.
