Um, there are plenty of ways to discipline a child without hitting them. And sometimes other methods of discipline don't work. I know this is a controversial topic so I'll just say ahead of time that nobody should take anything I say in this thread as an attack on their beliefs or parenting skills....

I am vehemently against spanking. I just don't believe (and scientific studies substantiate this) that it is effective. For one thing, it teaches children a horrible lesson: that violence is an acceptable way to deal with your problems. And secondly, it is very, very easy for a parent to lose contro...

The VAs were one of the worst things about the dub... so, nay to re-casting them. I'm sure it wouldn't be feasible anyway, CWI couldn't even get them all together only 2 years after the dubbed episodes that preceded its own. A lot of people hated Luna's voice, but Artemis really bothered me too. Som...

I was just about to make a topic about this... maybe this thread could be bumped up to a global announcement? The poll will probably only last a week and it would really help if everyone at this forum voted (and got the word out to other sites).

Um, well, humans aren't born with an "instinct" for detecting cheating boyfriends. If there is significant reason to believe in a partner's infidelity, you aren't being paranoid. If there isn't... you are. Pretty simple. One of the worst things you can do is accuse somebody of cheating. In fact, suc...

I realize it's not a *yaoi* show, those are pretty rare. But it's definitely aimed at the girls-who-love-boys-who-love-boys niche.

**Disclaimer: I haven't actually seen this anime.** If you're looking for a realistic portrayal of people who crossdress, this show probably isn't going to be it. It's another nonsense-premise show with no plot, basically just an excuse to service the yaoi fangirls with blushing bishounen. There are...

How nice. A re-release of the manga in English would be the perfect thing to re-invigorate the fan-base. Glad to know a company is pushing for it. Even though Toei has been acting strangely with the Sailor Moon licenses for the past few years, if you think about it, a re-release of the manga is even...

Glad to see this is here.

Hopefully nobody read the "review" from the Baltimore Sun that was run in many newspaper nationwide. Pretty much ruined the ending.

The deaths in the DiC dub of Sailor Moon never affected me much. I think that awful music dulled the emotions a bit. The first death I actually remember caring about was Hotaru in the dub of Sailor Moon S. Personally, I think the sequence where she destroys Mistress 9, appears as Sailor Saturn to el...

The original Japanese Sailor Moon was made for teens... Oh yeah, remember when that cat fell in love with that human? Or that whole 4th season that was like a Lisa Frank wet dream? Totally intense. Just because Sailor Moon has a few things that are considered "iffy" in western culture, in a *few* e...

Actually, no I didn't. Honestly. I can't help it, if I'm sheltered like that. I don't usually pay attention to any other races, it's not because I'm racist, it's because I'm usually told not to hang around other races. Blacks especially have a bad reputation where I live, because they're the majori...

It's probably that whole "White Power!" thing that comes to mind, if certain people see the white pride groups. I guess it's because you never hear about black, Hispanic or Asian supremacists. At least I never do. But you always hear about white supremacists, how whites are so racist toward other r...
