this stamp was hard to word
because I don't know what is the right syntax and grammar.

orginaly this was going to be about Naoto Shirogane from persona 4, then, in referance her and Kanji Tatsumii.

I was inspired by things I read from a blog. That, P4 didn't do enough of a good job in the eyes of some gamers. the game, and the characters would of been better...possibly deeper and, I guess, "worth" much more if things were as people thought they were.

if seen from that way. the game dosen't let you know about the other. Plus, players don't care who made the game. just "they should of just flat out said if Kanji is gay, really, grow balls and make a gay video-game character, and why can't our MC date him? that's so biased"

(i mean, it would be better right? I guess if I make a video game, I'll make sure that my gay characters live up to all stereotypes and make the character flaming with the intensity of 10,000 suns)

That is another reason i made my "be the change stamp"

Although...I think Kanji is Naoto-sexual. So whatever her gender he likes her.

yeh. it's just these people were "well it would of been more meaningful if she was transexual" I guess. but like I said for my other stamp. if American gamers can't sit and wait for the Japanese to make what they want, then they can make a videogame with some Polyamours, Pansexual woman who plays the role of Prince Charming who can slay a robot dragon to save a Flaming female to male transexual, genderqueer "princess"

would Naoto of been "more meaningfull deeper better" character if she was? I mean, yeh, that is double harsh for a persons strugling with "their true self"

and not "OH boohoo, you are a chick that does what is historicly a man's job and nobody takes you seriosuly, there are people who get killed for having more important problems" (not that most people study Japan's social structure who leads the way for that? I hear some cultures one would deem primitive even let males/females adopt the other's gender role)

I don't know.
at least people who can't make with their lives right can get some self reflection via video game characters.

ahh. people are complex.

I don't think that making a character gay or transgender actually makes them deeper. It just gives them a conflict, which everyone has no matter who they are.

Kanji and Naoto both had conflicts; Kanji didn't want to be rejected because what he likes to do doesn't fit the manly image he's expected to uphold while Naoto didn't want others to look down on her because of her age or gender. In the end, Kanji finds others that don't care if he fits the manly image (the kid and possibly the MC) and Naoto accepts the way she is, saying "I am a detective, and also a woman." Their conflicts-I believe-are a lot deeper than "Kanji is gay" or "Naoto is transgender."

yeh. like i said though, some players seem to had a "it's not good enough!" maybe i'll make a sister stamp. "because their issues aren't (i need a word, help me out, what is like over the top, grandiose is a good thing, i need a simple outragiously extream meaning word) dosen't undermine their problems"

How about "atypical?"

Not the most outrageous word, but it was the best I could find.

oh hey i was looking for images and apparenty naoto was going to be a he? during pre-production?

yeh. but some people don't see that. they just go "OMG i thought she was going to be the first Transexual videogame character, but they let me down. I'm never buying another Persona game again *rageeee*"

I loved the scene with the kid and MC. how you can say "this old man here made it" I thought it was cool he sew. I sew. maybe if the world was more majical I could make a Kanji talsman and it can help empower me to sew better
