  1. I've always wondered why robots are assigned a gender. To me the binary only matters in regards to who can have a baby together; if a robot can neither impregnate or give birth, it seems pointless. A Korean woman author known as Wann explored this concept in the short story Automaton (from the collection 9 Faces of Love published in English by Netcomics). In a world where robots are implanted with human brainwaves to let them easily move & talk like people, they all look like attractive women (because they're made by men). 2 who were part of the same batch are very attracted to eac
  2. Yes. Shugo & Rena were the main characters of .hack//LEGEND OF THE TWILIGHT BRACELET, a 3 volume graphic novel that also had a TV series & a music CD. It's part of the greater .hack multimedia franchise created by Hiroshi "Piros" Matsuyama. https://dothack.fandom.com/wiki/.hack//Wiki I've added images to the previous post.
  3. Time marches on, & it's a little surprising that:  4rrhq3.jpg

  4. I've heard that word before, a lot. Sometimes directed at me.
  5. (Remembers punks being obnoxious, making fun of my ancestors, & trying to pick a fight for no reason.) 🤦‍♀️
  6. @DeltaV I didn't know about those European words. It makes more sense that the prison slang term comes from that. @Jot-Aro Kujo Sorry. Was it the video clip that seemed condescending or something else? British punk band The Ants were aware of the origin & ran with it. Sometimes drumming in a tribal style, sometimes wearing stage makeup resembling "war paint." There were also acknowledgements in various songs--most notably The Human Beings in which lead singer Adam Ant gives shout-outs to various tribes. It seems they've actually educated their fellow Europeans, so it doesn
  7. I've gotten used to they, though at 1st it seemed like it contradicted what I learned in school. 😕 Speaking of which: I learned about first, second & third; but what on earth is fourth person!? 😵 What a clever title. 😂
  8. People who culturally appropriated a hairstyle from the Kanienʼkehá꞉ka (Mohawk) also stole the word punk from the Anishinabe (Algonquin). I'm guessing none of them realize that they are labeling themselves as a tiny, slightly annoying little bug known as a blackfly or gnat. Remember that when you see one of them try to be intimidating. Also: don't some linguistic thieves abuse the word even further by using it to describe someone who was raped in prison? Either way, I don't want to be called something like "punk."
  9. I recently remembered Boxing Helena. CONTENT WARNING. Note: I haven't seen it in years; I may get some details wrong. It's about a surgeon (Julian Sands) who is obsessed with his beautiful neighbor (Sherilyn Fenn). He even manages to sleep with her, but that doesn't lead to a relationship. He's unhappy when she spurns his romantic gestures & ends up with someone the wealthy doctor regards as a dimwitted thug (Bill Paxton). Eventually he confronts her about sleeping around & not returning his love. She gets annoyed & walks away, he follows her, she runs--into traffic wh
  10. Arocalypse is mentioned in this video.  It's set it to start just before, but I recommend the whole thing.

      Oh, I saw this the other day. Though I'm not sure I'd call this a mention. It's on screen as the first search result though so heck yeah.

      Yeah, it's a shame he was concentrating only on the Reddit entry.

      Considering he's a redditor by profession I guess it's not really too surprising.

  11. It's not just you. I was raised by a Christian family ("Be fruitful and multiply!") who all had too many kids & were quite disturbed by my lack of interest in anyone. Other aros have gotten plenty of dense responses:
  12. I am a Shamanist. I found comfort in rediscovering my people's traditions after a confused upbringing by (Baptist/Fundamentalist) Christians.
  13. Send Me a Wife for Christmas is anti-romance. The more you hear this guy's demands, the more obvious it becomes why he's single.
  14. It isn't only mental; I have strong sensory input & it actually hurts to be touched.
  15. Endrance in .hack//G.U. plays online as a male character with feminine characteristics. The novel describes Endrance as someone to whom the concept of gender has no meaning. About .hack//SIGN:
  16. What a relief.  Does the site look a little different, or am I imaging that?  I'm pretty new to the online world, so I don't know how to be a moderator & couldn't help.

      The site does look different; I'm pretty sure that the bolded titles of the subforums used to be green instead of black.

  18. Here's a professional look at Twilight. It makes me glad that I never read or watched it.
  19. @Rony Option added. I don't think I've heard that word before, but I think I understand what you're saying.
