They are transphobia, homophobia, fatphobia, and should always be pointed out and criticized.
, a "phobia" implies that you're afraid of something, not that you object to it. Second
, what's wrong with someone having an issue with transgender and fat people? In the former, it is brainwashing mentally unhealthy individuals that unless you go through an expensive procedure that destroys your sex organs, and pump your body full of chemicals and hormones, you will never find peace and happiness in life. Last I remember learning when I was growing up, we were suppose to "accept who we are" and learn to live with it, and that attempting to change ourselves into something else is a completely destructive venture.
As for the latter case (fat people), what's wrong with encouraging people to practice healthy eating habits, to remain active in your life, to keep yourself clean and practice proper hygiene, and to appear respectful and upstanding to the people around you (Especially to people you don't know)?

But, both Atlus and Hashino are Japanese. Why is it wrong for them to expressing their Japanese viewpoints? Isn't that what diversity is suppose to be about? People coming from different backgrounds, regions, and lifestyles, and expressing the opinions that they've come to believe through their life experiences? Doesn't it go against the very idea of "diversity" to silence people just because they're of the "wrong" skin color or express an "unpopular" belief?

How is any of this bigotry?
Great Handsome Oppressor wrote:Hashino being Japanese, or Japan being a country with a relatively low crime rate, has NOTHING, ABSOLUTELY NO BEARING, on how unacceptable Hashino's bigotry is. Who cares if he's from Japan? That doesn't magically make his bullshit acceptable, period. Japan isn't particularly more accepting of LGBT+ folks, or fat folks, than most other countries. People who create media ought to be held to a certain standard when it comes to social issues, and that has fuck-all to do with these creators' nationalities. Hashino being Japanese doesn't magically make it morally okay for him to be a bigot.
Wait, you want the guy to be fired and, much more, have his country to lose
crime rate, DECREASING
national debt, PRESERVED
cultural heritage and customs, and GLOBALLY SUCCESSFUL
because YOU ARE OFFENDED?
Great Handsome Oppressor wrote:"cultural sensibilities which are common IN JAPAN"… so what? Again, that these opinions may be shared by a large number of people does not make them right or acceptable in any way. It's important - critical, even - to challenge the "normalcy" of these ideas because they are actively harmful and dangerous towards LGBT+ folks.
I don't see how one country's views are detrimental towards a group that treats their sexual lifestyle as a cultural identity. Much less, how that same country is responsible for over 70% of homosexuals being pedophiles (Source
), 40-70% of serial killers being homosexuals (Source
), over 60% of HIVs and AIDs spread through gay sex(Source
), that nearly 80% of gays have sex with complete strangers (Source
), that over 75% of gays have relationships with over 100 partners (Source
), that children raised in homosexual households often fair worse (Source
), and the LGBT community overall being "less pop flyin'" than the average person (Source
) with social stigma havings absolutely NOTHING
to do with it (Source

Point to me WHERE
Hashino has ever said, "I hate homosexuals, the LGBTQ+ community, and anyone who has sexual relations with those of the same sex." As far as I know, the guy probably holds the same Japanese viewpoint that homosexuals are unproductive members of society (Source
). And, I don't see why that's so outrageous when Japan also sees the otaku as an "unproductive member of society" (Source
Great Handsome Oppressor wrote:Besides, if you really think it's just "damn Americans being the thought police", you're a fool. Hashino's bigotry isn't exclusive to Japan, and whoever, wherever it comes from, it hurts people in Japan and outside of Japan.
How? So far, you've made it very clear that you want a man to get fired, and his entire country reduced to rubble, just because you're offended over therm taking advantage of their right to express their diverse opinion. Doesn't that make YOU
the guilty party in this entire affair?
