I-A-B Reader Email Of The Day #9: A Line Crossed?


I-A-B Reader Email Of The Day #9: A Line Crossed?



Hey Anon (he/she didn't use a name),

This is one of the few times I'm gonna shut my big yapper--shocking, I know. I didn't submit or approve this video that you speak of--it was one of the Internet-famous I-A-B Mods. I don't know who because the clip in question was submitted by a vetern reader--Bjarki--and one of the Mods approved it. So I'm going to let the Mods field this question--either the Mod that approved it or any of the other Mods that might want to share their method and philosophy on submitting and approving content.

[My take after finally watching the video (I'm finally watching it right now for the very first time) is yeah, the video is interesting. Sorta reminds of something Quentin Tarantinomight have written into a film of his--you know: morbid, dark humor. You're right--it's not a jewel is the crown of feminism, but again--out of context. Would I have approved it? I don't know--I can't say. I've approved some pretty dumb shitover the years. You're also right about some of the comments--immature and insensitive, but you have to remember, the readers that left those comments (OK, let's be honest, they were probably all guys) have probably never gotten laid and haven't figured out the basics of how to treat the ladies.]

So Mods, if you have something to add, please do so...

So much for shutting my yapper, Fancy

PS: I do appreciate your well-written letter, Anon. It was clear, concise and thought out. I wish every email was like this--most read like English is the person's third language.

An I-A-B regular writes in about a post that was recently approved that might have crossed the line. The Mods respond.

CrakrJak: "Why not? The Japanese do it quite well with anime."

Actually, the Japanese don't do the dubbing at all into English. The companies that license the anime do the dubbing, and often it`s quite awful.

One of my favorite anime had the lead actress` voice go from a sweet Japanese voice to a squeaky scratchy voice in the English dub. It`s horrific. This is why I prefer subtitles, nuances are often lost or destroyed in dubs.

I watch TONS of anime (see below), and with a little practice you get to the point where you barely even notice that you`re reading subtitles.



As for the video this thread is related to... meh. It`s just a movie clip.

I'm female and I thought it was hilarious. She obviously had something coming what with the nervous glances and the frequent hush-ups from the others around the table. If she were a man in that situation none of the people who are "offended" by it would have said boo. Double standards much? Listen, women fought for equality, so lets all be treated equally. That includes getting punched in the face when you`re berating a mentally unstable man.
