    Hey, you told me that I shouldn't PM or VM you, so why would you try to PM/VM me?

    For someone who's supposedly on this crusade to destroy sexism (by boycotting Pokemon), you sure don't know anything about women.
    I have had various friends in Elementary, Middle, and High school who are females. I have observed how people behave in real life. My observations tell me that most girls appreciate wearing clothes that fit, but do not look like they're painted on. You may have different observations where you live. There isn't an authoratative source that we can go to in order to resolve which of us is correct. Therefore, let's just agree to disagree on this point.

    Quote:
    A key complaint among women who are well endowed is that there isn't nearly the availability of clothes that fit them which forces them to choose between oversized shirts (which are inconvenient for a number of reasons and ugly, people should have the right to look good) or shirts that are too small.
    I would just like to point out that some females, when they try to hide the fact that they are pregnant, wear loose-fittting clothes (hence oversized t-shirts).

    Quote:
    A third party wouldn't be biased, or at least would be less biased about what YOU think of YOUR friends.
    I know my biases, and can filter them out. A third party, not knowing the stranger, would be forced to incorporate the bias the stranger might have. Therefore, a truer picture can emerge if I know and filter out my bias.

    WHOA, 900? I'm sure The Pokemon Company is bleeding money.
    Added onto Petitionspot.com's various Petitions, that increases to about 30,000. And anyways, people could say that same thing about the thirteen colonies petition/boycott to Britain (I mean, think about it, it wasn't any different. most of the colonies were unwilling to try and rebel against great Britain: Slaves, Quakers, Tories, Noblemen, Country folk. In fact, the only ones who actually wanted to rebel were rich city people. Plus, even IF we actually did muster up absolutely all of the american colonies population, people argued that, since we were insignificant, even to Britain's colonies sake, it won't work [since the American colonies were not a significant part of Britain's colonies, especially if we looked at, like, India [which not only contained Britian's most powerful company, the East India company, but was also the largest producer of British Tea.], our words would fall on deaf ears anyways, and the Britains would ignore us even with the dumping of the tea into the Boston river.].), but did that stop us? no, it didn't. In fact, despite that setback, we still managed to get Britain fearful enough to try and wage war on the colonies to re-exert control, hence the Revolutionary War. If we could do an impossible-by-odds method like that and end up eventually succeeding, we can certainly do the same thing with the Pokemon Company. Besides, I'm trying to get everyone to sign petitions through me, or through other Misty fans.

    Second of all, it's only your fault that you were mistaken. If you just owned up to your mistakes as we all make them, it wouldn't be an issue.
    I do owe up to my mistakes. However, it's still a misleading message, as Created by implies that the person in question had actually created the product in question.

    Quote:
    And finally, the central focus of the anime is Ash. To deny that Ash is the main character is to deny reality. You're entitled to your own opinons, but not your own facts.
    Ok, first off, I didn't say anything about Ash not being a Main Character. I was just saying that he isn't the central focus. (Which reminds me, several sites have already stated that all of the characters who traveled with Ash are the main characters, and thus, central focuses to the show.).

    Quote:
    Taken to VM because it has nothing to do with the topic.
    Remember what you said to me about not PMing or VMing you on SPPf? Well, since I'm not allowed to, you shouldn't do it to me, either. It seems to me that the only reason you did that is because you want to win the arguement no matter the cost.

    No, I wasn't Self-diagnosed. I was already diagnosed as such by a doctor when I was about 4 (I had already lost most of my speech, then.). I don't believe in poking fun at people for things anyways, even IF I am losing an arguement (the only thing that matters is if I end up being correct, not if I end up winning the arguement.).

    First off, our boycott isn't a "one-man" boycott.

Second of all, Created By's meaning is exactly what the title implies: it's credits him to actually creating the show.

    Actually, I only mentioned [the pneumothorax] because you brought up the Pneumothorax in the first place on that thread. yes, you were, indeed, the one who brought it up first

    "Alas, making a mountain out of a molehill so you can blame May for something. It's never Ash's fault for being so rash, is it? Then again, I suppose you did hold hating May as a higher priority over surviving a life-threatening body injury, so I'm not surprised."

    sound familiar? Anyways, I barely ever reference the Pneumothorax unless in the context of how I came to bring back Misty (which even then, only if the situation calls for an extensive backstory.).

    Besides which, maybe you don't realize this, but people who have survived a devastating blow and are glad they are alive are usually thinking spoiled and selfish thoughts, especially if this devastating blow resulted in the deaths of others. Hence, why I don't focus on the fact that I'm alive.

    Also, I don't necessarily believe telling the truth in itself as bashing. However, if it's done in such a way that seems more like your trying to insult and be negative towards someone, that constitutes as bashing, no matter what, which IS against the rules. And anyways, in regards to bashing, here's the definition of it (it came from a friend, BTW)

    "^Well, when you're bashing a character, it means you're insulting/pointing out faults of/basically saying mean things about a character. "

    And, while I myself will admit I'm guilty of this as well, you don't seem to be feeling any remorse for it, and seem to actually enjoy saying bad things about Misty. However, I don't like bashing May or Dawn (actually, I'd rather not have anything to do with them), but I don't like the female anime stereotype, I want it abolished for the good of all people, and thus, well, I make negative comments. It's no different than how Carol Weatherford bashed Jynx under allegations of being a discrimitory stereotype against Blacks.

    Well, here's the restraining order. And I know how to add to my ignore list (I did it with PDL), But that's not effective since I can still read the posts on the thread since I'm an Archivist.

    Just a last thing before I personally hand you a restraining order on me. I find it utterly incomprehensible how you can possibly throw that pneumothorax around so casually. To me, that is the mark of a spoiled brat. Actually, much worse than a spoiled brat that you don't care that you're alive, because most people would avoid trying to bring up such a traumatic event unless necessary.

    Well, since telling the truth somehow registers as bashing in your synapses, feel free to ignore me to your ignore list, if you know how.

    "I've already said I was done arguing with you after you still would not accept that your sidekick definition has been shot down despite proof of many sidekicks defeating your definition."

    IF that was the case, why did you even bother responding and mocking me about my saying that several Misty fans are still upset about her departure at all?

    "If you even want me to have a slim chance of responding back to your userpage, I suggest you look at what I wrote about your analysis of Kiki's Delivery Service. In fact, I am unwilling to come back to friendly terms with you until you learn some humility. Good day."

    If anyone of us needs to learn humility, it's you. And also, I did look at what you wrote about it, and I already knew that! The only reason I never mentioned the whole thing about Kiki saving that kid she had feelings for involving the Zeppelin incident is because YOU never asked whether I liked the plotline as a whole or not. All you asked was whether there was a female anime stereotype or some other other offensive thing in that movie. In fact, that whole thing only proved that it's actually YOU whose looking for a fight, and that you are willing to look for any excuse to leave if you can't even try and make me fickle for something (especially this one since you never even asked if there were any plotlines that I liked, all you asked was whether there were any negative stereotypes on Females or anything, so that part was unnecessary since you never asked!)

    So, I'm personally glad I won't have to deal with you anymore on the talk pages, since you are acting nothing more than... (uggh, I can't even bring myself to say it). Also, in reference to the Duck Dodgers series, the only (brief time) I ever saw duck dodgers was when Duck and that human CO were talking [something bad like a falling out between his mother was hinted at least twice.].

    Well, since this should be our last talk, I suggest that, not only do you NOT respond to my User Talk, but you ALSO don't respond or mock my posts.

    Well, the secret is sheer force of numbers. You see, I can't recruit all Misty fans in the world all by myself, Even I know that's impossible. However, I can at least try to recruit people in my home state of Georgia without much problem (as well as some people out of state and maybe even those out of country, taking into account if they visit the United States [much less Georgia], as about a hundred people were from out of state, at least [the majority I "recruited" via petition signings.), and I got at least two foreign exchange students recruited just simply by talking to them (that, and emailing them filling them in on the mission.)

    You see, in order to compensate for not being able to recruit more people than in my vincity, I have some Misty fans try and collect signatures in their areas across the world, and while they haven't filled me in as to whether they did do that, I'll assume that they did.), that's basically my secret. It's also a tactic used back in colonial times when trying to get the Declaration of Independence signed (as well as voting 13/13 to get the votes of the united states becoming a united country.)

    Also, it currently has five stages where at least one of them has to be accomplished (note, these don't have a set order):

    1. explain why the female anime stereotype is a bad thing, and why Misty must return to the main cast (also, just in case, and if you have it with you, supply proof.), this is effective in getting one person to an entire classroom to join up.

    2. Show a video explaining the full plans of it, and also detailing why Misty must return and why the FAS is bad. (note, I have two copies of the Bring Misty back reasons video, one is the heavily edited edition, as it removed almost 90% of the evidence (and 25% of the overall video) due to blurring complications and time constraints, and an original, unblurred video that is divided into four parts.), this is especially effective in trying to persuade a massive group of at least 1,600 people, if not more.

    3. Show them the controversial statement by former director Masamitsu Hidaka (the eyecandy comment, I mean, though the "flat out not returning" part will also work, as long as you also mention that Masamitsu Hidaka is no longer the Director, and his influence on the Anime is waning, so his word isn't really set in stone.), this will give them more incentive to try and bring Back Misty (as I'm pretty sure that even those who hate Misty would also agree that's far too shallow of a reason to remove her.)

    4. Tell them that they will boycott if Misty doesn't come back, if they truly want Misty to come back. (it's the old "Strike and decline sales" operation, as most, if not all major corporations deeply fear losing sales and stock revenue.

    5. Get their signatures, to prove they want her back, or at least want the female stereotype ousted.

    Basically, to paraphrase Don Weaso from "Conker's bad fur day"; "basically you'rea to graba the signatures, showa the evidence, showa the videos, tella the plans, executa the boycott, preferably all of them, and then get the **** on going!" (note, I didn't play the game, I witnessed someone playing the heist minigame.)

    I was mainly referring to Porky Pig in the Duck Dodgers shorts and spinoff series, in which he usually picks up after Daffy's (Dodgers's) crazy antics. Don Quixote is a famous satire written by Miguel de Cervantes in the 16th century, and I'm surprised that you've never learned about it in English class. The Sancho-Quixote relationship is similar to Porky-Daffy. And the idea that sidekicks are generally cowards is not a fact. It is an ignorant opinion formed by someone with a limited exposure to media or one who defines sidekick by narrow, prejudiced parameters or both. Unfortunately, because I actually have something resembling a life, I cannot list every single sidekick that breaks your stupid definition. In fact, I know that your sidekick definition has been shot down by the Wikipedia article already, so I'm not even going to bother continuing an argument in which you persist in your fallacy despite the obvious proof to the contrary. To use my tired metaphor, it's like trying to use scientific evidence to argue with a creationist.

    They were not throwing a bone to May. Ash has comparatively little experience in Contests, evidenced by his initially poor showing in his score. In fact, who exactly they threw the bone to, if at all, is entirely up to perception.

    Here it comes: I never cared much for Misty. Happy now?

    "Anyways, yeah, while I'm more tolerant of them, I would consider them "gender traitors""

    *bangs head on wall* Next thing I know, you'll be ragging on Blackjack Gabbiani for actively participating and even helping the Serebii swimsuit thread.

    The way you bring up Kiki's Delivery Service only serves to confirm that you are merely nitpicking to "prove" your point. As such, I am done arguing with a brick wall. Did you even care about the rest of the movie, especially about how the titular character saved a boy from certain doom? No, because there's only room for one so-called "feminist" character in your brain, isn't there? Oh well, I abdicate. You win, by default, if that qualifies as a satisfying victory for you. Keep hiding behind your preconceived notions while I go find someone to argue with who won't suck my life away.

    "You really don't get out enough if you think Pikachu and Robin are the only meaningful sidekicks. How about Porky Pig, who is often more rational and reasonable than the impulsive, greedy Daffy Duck? And Sancho Panza to Don Quixote, a historical example of a sidekick smarter than the protagonist? Heck, even Luigi has several moments where he does heroic things, especially in his very own game. I like sidekick characters, and the way you stereotype them is very narrow-minded and degrading."

    Don't think I like stereotyping them as such. I personally hate that as well, but the fact is, it what happens. As for Luigi, yes he did end up having heroic things. Unfortunately, while it is good that he actually does heroic things in some way or another, it still outweighed by the fact that he acts like a coward. when I said "meaningful", I mean the majority of the time (not that I like that philosophy, but still).

    Also, in regards to Porky Pig and Daffy Duck, I've seen him either giving the famous "That's all folks" (or, in the loony toons movie, "Go Home, Folks"), or doing narrations of obviously exaggerated historical accounts (like the transportation thing, Wett, Washington.). I don't think I've seen an episode where he hangs out with Daffy Duck. In fact, most of the shorts in Loony Tunes/Merry Melodies franchise have Daffy Duck co-starring with Bugs Bunny (though mostly as either the antagonist or as the fall guy to Elmer Fudd.). As for Sancho Panza and Don Quixote, I've never really heard of them other than what you've mentioned of them.

    "I might point out that Blaziken has a type advantage to Sceptile, for one thing, but since you're nitpicking by going through every dang case, I don't even want to bother counteracting every single one of them. Secondly, the bizarre outcomes of the matches result from the writers having a predetermined victory/loss for the character, regardless of the circumstances. It is obvious that by letting Misty win over Ash, they were merely throwing a bone to her. Yes, they blatantly threw a bone to Dawn by letting her win over May as well, but all the other cases of "unfair" wins do not invalidate one case. Also, I thought you hated Cybercubed. Why would you use his words in an argument?"

    In regards to your first point, the type advantage isn't solid since there have been countless cases where the writers ignored the whole "Type advantage" rule was thrown out of the window. I mean, Pikachu was able to defeat Geodude and damage Onix significantly with electric attacks, even though Ground Types shouldn't be beaten by electric attacks (Yes, Onix and Geodude are both ground type. And yes, Pikachu was supercharged at the time, but still.), The entirety of "The School of Hard Knocks" had to do with a pokemon beating another that is superior in typing (eg, Misty's Starmie defeating Weepinbell despite the latter being at a type advantage) among others. So please don't try to say that she was able to match Ash just by Type advantage, since that just won't work, especially since Sceptile still had more experience than a recently evolved Blaziken. It was obvious that they were throwing the bone to May, even WITH the tie.

    I do hate Cybercubed for reasons similar to how you think Misty fans pick on your May fans. I'm only quoting him (and it's not even him as much as several fans with like minds) because that's what they said. I don't care too much for what they say, but whether I care or not doesn't matter, since it still counts.

    It may not excuse her case, but it doesn't mean Misty is the sole guilty member.

    "Dang my memory. I don't recall saying Misty was stale in Johto, but, at the risk of prolonging this mudslinging, I will say that I always regarded Misty as having little potential for development. Since she specializes in Water-types, that greatly limits her roster and activities she can participate in. I felt that the many events conveniently placed for Misty in Johto were the writers' attempts to "develop" her skills, but it just comes off as contrived."

    You did refer to her as being a cheerleader, not supposed to follow ash along, among other things, the same people who say these things ALSO say she was stale in johto, so even IF you didn't say that, considering what I've witnessed in regards to May vs. Misty arguements, it's probably what you meant.

    "You do not get the scientific method, do you? The hypothesis is put in place to have some guideline for analyzing the results. The conclusion is meant to either confirm or deny the hypothesis. Some people just get too religious over the hypothesis and thus ignore the conclusion if it denies the hypothesis, like creationists who are so determined to defeat evolution that they will deny any evidence pointing towards it and against their position."

    Oh, believe me, I reached that conclusion by PURE RESEARCH, via something I'm embarrased to admit (Don't ask, since I don't want to talk about it.).

    "The romance thing was not what I was referring to concerning CLAMP. Okay, if I have to be explicit, several of their mangas have "fanservice" moments, such as the titular character of Cardcaptor Sakura being dressed in various loli outfits and Chi from Chobits being used for some rather, er, dodgy moments. I was wondering if that made the CLAMP writers gender traitors to you, considering you seem to think that you are more feminist than women."

    You mentioned liking romance and having them being girly in an earlier post in regards to how CLAMP portrays women. Anyways, yeah, while I'm more tolerant of them, I would consider them "gender traitors"

    "And the reason why I brought up Miyazaki? Do his movies have "female anime stereotypes" or anything similarly offensive to you?"

    I don't really watch much of his movies, but I did see one of them. "Kiki's Delivery Service", I believe. and, yes, there was at least one female anime stereotype in that movie (it was the addressee for Kiki's delivery service who had ordered something and gave a very rude comment when she got what she wanted. She also reappeared with some friends with Kiki's growing love interest. You'll know who I'm talking about. She's the ginger-head with a Valley-girl accent.).

    "I find it amusing that you regard "sidekick" as negative. In shows that I've watched, the sidekick tends to be the brains to the main character's brawn and even has heroic moments where the main protagonist fails. Sidekicks, written right, can serve many meaningful roles to the protagonist."

    After seeing how they portrayed Luigi, Flounder, Tails, Krillin, and other sidekicks, how can I NOT view it as negative. Yes, if written right, they can be considered meaningful, but the only ACTUAL sidekicks to do this are Pikachu and Robin (for the record, Misty, Brock, and event Tracey and Max don't count as sidekicks. even Charaxes said this, and that the only person (or rather, thing) that will count as an ACTUAL Sidekick is Pikachu.)

    "Wow, I get the impression you hate everything in the anime not pertaining to Misty. That's a sure sign of Fan Dumb (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/FanDumb) if you ask me, and I suggest you watch a more "realistic" anime if you feel the need to nitpick every dang flaw in this one. "

    I don't hate everything in regards to the anime. Heck I thought that Ash's wins were neat. I also enjoyed that sometimes the badge can be earned through helping someone than just beating the character. Heck, I liked some of the Kanto episodes. Heck, I'll even admit that Zoey and the Twinleaf Contest episodes were all right as well, as well as Roarks battles. So, really, I don't HATE everything about the anime. but that does NOT mean I should act like Misty was the only person who used Deus ex Machina (which i'll get to later), nor does it mean I should view the anime as flawless.

    You constantly point out all the continuity errors, but I regard Misty's win over Ash as poor writing because Ash knows about Psyduck's headaches. He also defeated Psyduck effectively in "Who Gets to Keep Togepi", so Misty's win this time seemed like a cop-out by the writers."

    It's not like May's wins weren't copouts, either. I mean, let's see, Half of her Squirtle's wins didn't make any sort of sense at all. Eevee's victory against Marshtomp was just downright terrible writing (I don't CARE if it was Marshtomp's first contest, Eevee was still inexperienced at the time [I mean, for goodness sakes, it was nothing more than a baby at the time!]!), her tie against Ash shouldn't have happened (heck, she pulls a deus ex machina on Ash by having her Combusken just SUDDENLY evolve into Blaziken and SOMEHOW manage to tie against Ash's more experienced Sceptile [that's not a realistic scenario. I mean, most evolved pokemon don't suddenly match their rivals just by evolving alone. Besides, it's deus ex machina and one of the reasons why people don't want Ash's pokemon to evolve during a Gym Match.].). Dawn's win against May was ALSO Deus Ex Machina. Oh, and not to mention, even ASH's Win against some of the Gym Leaders (mainly Kanto, but there have been others) have been labeled as a "copout", or Deus Ex Machina. For example, Ash's win against Blaine was luck since apparantly Charizard was immune to the corroding effects of Lava. I mean, other than the things involving good humanitarian/poketarian efforts in Kanto, His win against Pryce was considered by Cybercubed to be terrible since Pryce threw in the towel, his win against whitney was also viewed in a negative light, since he used three against one against her. Hoenn had him keeping the badge against Wattson despite technically cheating against him (though some people argued that Wattson cheated as well, since they had the robotic raikou and all), and the Mossdeep win was unforgivable as well, since that had the infamous "Thunder Armor" technique as well. His win against Anabel was considered to be a poor win as well, as he recalled the Pokemon and let it out, thus technically cheating. Sinnoh, the Maylene win was a copout as well (I mean, they tied, and yet Ash got the badge anyways?), the Crasher Wake battle, see the Anabel win (he recalled them and used them again, which technically counts as cheating as well.)

    "He didn't have an actual Pokemon, and letting Max travel with Ash just shows how much Norman trusts him."

    You know, if I were him, then trust him or not, I'd make absolutely sure he is trustworthy. For all I know, Ash could have been some sort of nasty bully who picks on Max.

    "People are used to seeing Ash. If they changed him, the new orientation would throw a lot of people off. In Pokemon Special, people were used to the changes already."

    Yeah, well, people are saying that Ash is stale, and since people felt Misty was stale in Johto (yes, even you), I think it's only fair that Ash goes away as well.

    "The anime convention is second-hand knowledge. You are just using the creationist method of having your conclusion and finding evidence to support it disregarding any against it when you should be using the scientific method of gathering evidence and deriving a conclusion from it (how many times have I brought up the scientific method now?). Anyways, I'll try again. Do you know who Hayao Miyazaki is?"

    what the? I thought that's EXACTLY what the Scientific method was part of stating your conclusion (ie, Hypothesis) and researching it to come up with the true conclusion.

    Also, I DID research on this long before May came onto it, to see what My mom said was true, and it was.)

    "For the record, CLAMP is an all-female manga group. Their stories have a cult following of both males and females for their narratives. Personally, I think you will be shocked if you read their works, because it might break some of your convictions concerning how girls should act, but the fact that the writers are all female should attract your attention."

    What, you think that, just because I want to promote female rights, I HATE it if Females like romance or act girly?! No! That's not the case at ALL! Sheesh, talk about someone who thinks I'm stereotyping females! I wouldn't mind it if they wanted that! Sigh... You know... to use a non animated example... "Two and a Half Men"... RIGHT?! You know how they portray almost every female in a negative light (as in, the vast majority of them [esp. Kandi, the second ex of Alan Harper] are complete and utter airheads, and only one case had it to the exact opposite extreme where the first ex of Alan Harper was a complete and total brat [sorry, couldn't use the synonym for female dog], though she still seems to be an airhead considering how many guys she goes out with and even used Alan's Alemony payment before her second marriage to pay for a Boob Job.), You know how THEY act (if you've seen the show, I mean)?! Well, that's the exact thing I and my family objected to! (I never liked the show, anyways, neither did my family, though we do sometimes see it, just for laughs (though I don't laugh). So next time you accuse me of thinking I don't want Females to like romance (that is, ACTUAL romance, not the hooker kind) or being girly, be absolutely sure to read this again.

    I find it amusing that you regard "sidekick" as negative. In shows that I've watched, the sidekick tends to be the brains to the main character's brawn and even has heroic moments where the main protagonist fails. Sidekicks, written right, can serve many meaningful roles to the protagonist.

    Wow, I get the impression you hate everything in the anime not pertaining to Misty. That's a sure sign of Fan Dumb (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/FanDumb) if you ask me, and I suggest you watch a more "realistic" anime if you feel the need to nitpick every dang flaw in this one.

    You constantly point out all the continuity errors, but I regard Misty's win over Ash as poor writing because Ash knows about Psyduck's headaches. He also defeated Psyduck effectively in "Who Gets to Keep Togepi", so Misty's win this time seemed like a cop-out by the writers.

    "Considering how he broke league rules and allowed his underaged son to go with a group of kids of whom only one of which he knows a lot about, It wouldn't have mattered anyways."

    He didn't have an actual Pokemon, and letting Max travel with Ash just shows how much Norman trusts him.

    People are used to seeing Ash. If they changed him, the new orientation would throw a lot of people off. In Pokemon Special, people were used to the changes already.

    "Besides, Just because someone (even a girl) thinks that that's how girls should act doesn't mean that this IS how girls should act."

    I love this quote. You don't mind if I, er, borrow it without permission, do you? Teehee, thanks!

    Love,
