you know, I'm reasonably sure SJWs would be *for* the game to feature homosexuals. So either you're misinformed what a SJW is or a troll

This is a far cry from Marxism-Leninism or Fascism, both of which are bona fide totalitarian ideologies representing the worst of the extreme left and right (though to be fair Fascism is strictly neither, but rather is simply more right than left) respectively. Nevertheless, I disapprove.

The dub version of Card Captor also censored the relationship between Toya and Yukito. I think it was a a bad thing to do, you hardly ever see a gay pairing shown in a non overly sexualized way...... their relationship was conveyed in such an honest and beautiful way imo

"These donuts are great! Jelly-filled are my favorite! Nothing beats a jelly-filled donut."

I think in the same episode, instead of a giant onig-- I mean jelly-filled donut, there was a giant sandwhich instead.

I believe the built in version Alex Kidd on some Sega Master Systems swapped rice ball for hamburger.

The idea that this is caused by liberal SJW would be laughable if people didn't actually believe that this garbage. The OP has to reach back to 2013 to find a couple of opinion pieces that match his warped take on the issue.

Here is a list of anti-LGBT hate groups:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_organizations_designated_by_the_Southern_Poverty_Law_Center_as_anti-LGBT_hate_groups
Notice that they are all right-wing groups. And all but one are christian groups.

Smear attacks on women and feminists by conservative men make me sick. Just another example of the gamer-gate mentality that's all about shaming women and driving them out of the marketplace with lies and half truths.

I just want cute gay girls to be represented not over-sexualizingly and not catering to men, yo. D^8

Well, that's the big inherent problem with the internet... it's a goldmine for confirmation bias. Ironically, he's doing exactly the sort of thing he seemingly thinks SJWs do--jumping to conclusions because of some weird ideology and blaming a particular group for stuff they had nothing to do with.

And speaking of confirmation bias, that article from the OP goes on to list a whole bunch of blatantly yuri-teasing lines that were not changed in the translation. Of the three that were changed, "[I like] looking at cute girls" may have become "looking at cute things," but other lines in that set include "I'd be happier if there were something I could do to those girls I'm attracted to" and "Isn't it normal to be attracted to charming girls?". Apparently those weren't changed, because if they had been, they'd be a much more relevant thing to point out. And they don't show the original text anywhere... Japanese uses context over pronouns a lot of the time, so "cute things" is probably just a bad or literal translation, not some kind of censorship.

The main thing that's bugging me is that they misspelled "please" as "pleae" in one of those... I mean, jeez, did they even run a spellchecker?

does it ever get tiring for these people, railing against this imagined campaign of "Social Justice Warrior" censorship? I know I'm weary just listening to these last few months of concentrated negativity in nerd culture, I can't imagine what it's like to actually carry that standard. Is this ever going to end? 'Cause it's going nowhere and some of us really don't care to hear about the horde of "SJW"s coming to ruin nerd culture anymore. This has been a really long what is it 8-9 months?

Oh, Goddess, it's the original Sailor Moon series Haruka/Sailor Uranus, Michiru/Sailor Neptune's relationship change debacle all over again.... I thought that America had learned from that. And I thought that Japan and America were more accepting of lesbian and gay stuff now than they used to be. Guess I was wrong....

The thing is that one possible motive could be feminists and SJWs declaring that displaying and eroticizing homosexual couples is objectifying and demoralizing. There's a whole bunch of different radical camps with different views, so who knows? It would be a ballsy business maneuver for any corporation dealing with imports at this point to take a stand against homosexual relationships, maybe these people are just the pandering to the "male-gaze" feminist camp?

That's the thing for me: It's really starting to feel like all these different "progressives" are doing more harm to each other than they are to whatever boogeymen they're aiming to hunt.

That being said, I think it's foolish to censor this content. This isn't 1999.

I completely agree, actually. Censorship in general is dumb, and the thing about progressivism is that the world can't be someones personal schrodingers cat experiment. I honestly think we should just roll with the punches as they come along and all do our best to not hurt or take away from what other people have been given, and to make sure we give to those who need a hand. I seem to be in direct conflict with a lot of other people in that regard, though...
