ways to salvage LM’s story:
1. kai and naoki have to lose and be stepped on either by gaillard, kourin or aichi->provide more opportunities for growth in other members of team Mate the second time around.
2. the above is the only way

D E S T R O Y THE IDEA THAT HAVING A STUTTER OR ANY KIND OF SPEECH IMPEDIMENT AUTOMATICALLY MAKES YOU INTROVERTED, SHY, WEAK, DEPRESSED, ANXIOUS, ECT., OR ANY COMBINATION OF SUCH
drippingnight said: oh! umm if possible, can you please tell me why it’s a problematic post? I have a feeling it’s not quite// exactly accurate but I’m not sure what since I’m not as well-versed in either anime or japanese culture…I hope I’m not sounding too rude///
absolutely!! you arent being rude at all dw
no matter how much you claim the word isnt sexual it derives from the term shotacon which is a form of child pornography and the word is incredibly triggering to csa (child sexual abuse) survivors. the same goes with “loli”. they are both inherently sexual terms. you might not think its sexual when you say it, and maybe its not even used sexually in japan anymore - but the fact remains that many people who are csa survivors are badly affected by it.
trust me i know. i used to have the url ‘shotalita’ and when one of my feminist posts went viral i got chewed out for having shota in my name. according to them it made me a supporter of pedophilia, which is of course wrong but they are not at all obligated to forgive me regardless of my ignorance.
its a word that hurts people severely, in the same way rape jokes can hurt a rape survivor. the only nice thing to do is stop using it. thats why posts like that trivializing the experiences of thsoe who have had to endure such awful things, especially in an aggressive tone, is not okay. people need to not get so uptight clinging to the allowance of using offensive terms. if they are “just words” than the same applies to you - they are “just words” so it isnt hard to stop using them.
hope this helps!!
oh i see! thank you for taking the time to clarify it for me//
