I totally meant to ask questions about what you were trying to say but I got sidetracked by my Oda issues. Like in my head, I actually started off by saying something like being surprised given your general views on Oda’s writing on women in general, etc as I recall them. So I do apologize for only thinking that part and having my fingers be faster than my brain. You’re very correct that assumptions on what you’re thinking are incorrect. I can only go with what’s presented and should do perception checking to gather or further clarify any data/perspective. I wasn’t trying to judge your view so much as analyze the characterization itself. Your view is your view. As I stated. We’re all entitled to them. The point of this thread is to discuss them, is it not. I thought it was for analysis of the characters in more than just a simple, listing format. If we cannot have conversations about the levels of the work and what it brings out in ourselves, in society, etc, then it’s just a surface viewing and that’s fine too. There’s no wrong way to engage with something you enjoy. I’m just expressing what comes to mind. I try not to be offensive and appreciate being called out of my tone or phrasing is weird as my intentions aren’t ill.GoldenVenus wrote: ↑Fri May 08, 2020 6:56 pmI probably worded it wrong (I was multitasking doing my work at the same time) but let me just make this clear. I wasn't really talking about a real relationship between a man and a woman. When I wrote that, I wasn't including Hancock's painful past in my mind, mostly because after her arc, she's totally turned into a gag character, and I was basically saying it based on their comedic relationship (without the whole past issues).
And I also never said anything about wanting to be like her or that it's okay for a woman to do anything for the sake of a man. I do get your point though, and I appreciate it. Though, i don't prefer someone judging what my view is based on what I said here ^^.
But anyway, you do have good points and I do agree with them. Also, speaking of a character of a woman, I think we can agree that Oda is indeed a little bit lacking when it comes to writing female characters.
