Lmao you didn’t read Twitch chat, then.Yikes - people so quickly want to assume that a person acting cute (and doing so purposefully) is being fetishized rather than just recognized?
She purposefully acted cute there, and she isn't a bad looking person. What's wrong with calling a cute person cute?
It's not like people (so far) are being creepy with "Uguuu Japanese people are so kawaii desu I'm gonna make her Mai waifu!!"
(... At least not that I've seen yet.)
I honestly find his/her post offensive because it just sounds like they're stripping Nakamura of her own personal agency.
You're moving the goalpost. This thread was about the fanart and most people only referring to the fanart and attacking that, no the Twitch chat.
We rarely see the kind of enthusiasm at E3 and it was just nice to see someone who was genuinely excited about their product to get on stage. Yeah sure you have some creeps but I honestly think this site has overblown this.
I'm assuming (hoping?) Puck's post is (ill-advised) parody. If he's serious, it's rather disgusting condescension and mansplaining.
Yeah that's the stuff that definitely come off as straight-up infantilizing to me, nothing wrong with her.
No worries, bruv. It's incredibly obscure unless you've seen it a lot. It's like learning to see Witness puzzles in the environment, hahahaha.
Like, how big of a sweeping generalization is that? Surely, it's a reasonable thing to assume very few have been to Japan. "But he said nobody!" Point still stands. As soon as something could be construed as sexist or ethnocentric, people suddenly start acting like they have majors in postcolonial/gender studies.
As if being cute and enthusiastic - or even Japanese - is somehow not a qualified reason to be celebrated. Sure context matters, but you know damn well the internet isn't shy of shitstorming at any given moment, so when more than 100k people thinks she's cute, enthusiastic or Japanese (that's objective though), or whatever reason they have, let's just enjoy that there's very little reason to believe anything is meant with bad intentions, aside from your attempt at spin.
Oh come on now. It was bound to get creepy, of course. But her appearance on stage was adorable and uplifting, and yet I can still respect her a as a talented human being.
Did anybody NOT see Sarah Bond? I'd like to see her more often at Microsoft's E3 in the future.
I love how one of them is the stick figure drawing of her too. It's still so unbelievable how she went from a few hundred twitter followers from before the Bethsoft conference to over 130K now by the end of E3
Not really disagreeing with you but the internet can find a way to make a waifu out of anyone. I can't count how many Jeopardy champions got turned into waifu meme's.
What about Ukrainian?
