But now Warden Magellan, with his venom-venom powers, is out to stop him! Like, Nami is obviously one of the weaker fighters of the Strawhats, but she is shown to be one of the smartest too, and also her navigational skills are probably the most essential skill for their survival in the Grand Line. I don't think it objectifies women. They aren't just there for the sake of being there. I want to know how those who are actually trans and gay felt about the representation in the series, whether it is overall positive or negative in your own perspective, and why you feel that way.
The okama characters are certainly likeable. But the fact they they're okamas, or flamboyantly not conforming to gender norms, tends to be a joke. There are many who don't, so I don't think Oda's doing a bad job considering his premises, but he still lets way more men become powerful. One specific example I can think of where the One Piece okamas has affected me was when I came out as transexual to a friend who liked One Piece. To view it, As usual, I don't do reviews of the One Piece series, since there are over 500 chapters of epic awesomeness at this point. I love seeing their fights.
I love the series lots. See the full rules for examples. But he runs into some powerful devil fruit eaters and things don't go as planned. That's not to say that I would not like seeing you model the new swimsuits you bought. I do think that it is at least the better of the big three, though, because at least all of the main female characters have real depth.
Sometimes it has been used as a joke, but there are also instances where the Okamas are shown to be complex characters. Can Luffy and his former adversaries help him reach Ace before Ace is sent to be executed? Sexy outfits aside, they're treated just like any other characters. Even more hell breaks loose! But women in One Piece are characters just like the rest. She got free passes by aokiji, not because of her battle skills. Ivankov is even one of my favorite characters in the series so far. They aren't all just weak, love obsessed damsels for the main character to pine over and rescue like they often end up being in Naruto and Bleach.
Maybe I used the wrong word when I said charismatic. There's really nothing sexist about that. I think your avatar is a work of art, Amy. If the previous volumes were any indication, just.
But she's also a bit deeper than you're giving her credit for. But now Warden Magellan, with his venom-venom powers, is out to stop him! I love the Newkama Army characters, but I don't necessarily feel comfortable with how the queer aspects of them are handled. I don't even want to know how Luffy's going to survive in the long-term, if people keep shaving off decades of his life. We're a sexually dimorphic species. Super sexy, really eccentric, etc. And they're dressed to kill! Devil Fruits can help but are mostly useless on their own against strong opponents.
Long story short: The Okamas in One Piece are significant because they are individually powerful, good natured, and faithful to their cause. Otherwise it is considered a low effort type of post and will be removed. There are some powerful female characters in one piece, but there are way more powerful male characters. The stage is set for a massive confrontation as Luffy recruits some major players to his cause and just about every major faction is on a collision course with each other at Marineford.
She's got a lot on her mind. So even if they have also been prone to be some comedy relief sometimes it's alright because they aren't necessarily been made fun of for that sole reason. But still, are those unreal bodies necessary? I'm mostly doing this to keep track of what happens per volume. And the 8 gender-bent Supernovas Law, Kid, X-Drake, Killer, Capone, Urouge, Hawkins, Apoo were so diverse in their faces and body types. I don't believe something like One Piece can do that on it's own, especially since the characters are largely portrayed in a positive light, but the queer aspects of those characters are still so stereotypical that they can be reinforcing for those who already have that sort of hate or fear.
