Instead of calling people "black" or "cripple", why don't we just call them by their name? Duh!

What about people you don't know?
It's a good thing Shizune is deaf, she is the only one who can stand (not) hearing "Wahaha~!" over and over.

'Hey you!' tends to work.
Even if the author is silenced, the performance is stopped, the story will not end.

Whether it's a comedy or a tragedy, if there is cheering, the story will continue on.
Just like the many lives.
For the us who are still in it and still in the journey, send warm blessings.

---We will continue to walk down this path until eternity.

That only works when addressing someone directly. When discussing individuals in third person, it's normal and expected to describe them in a way that makes it clear who you're talking about TO the person you're talking to. Names are fine if you both know this person's name. But if I don't know someone's name and she has no arms, I will refer to her as "that armless girl" when talking about her with someone else.

Doing anything else would just be bizarre.

"Hey, do you know that cute girl from Yamaku?"
"Which one?"
"The cripple."
"..."

Doesn't work. :D

Fixed :mrgreen:

Speaking of Yakamu, Hisao's parents just left him there, left a note and buggered off didn't they? I know for the sake of narrative it gets on with the romancey part of the story, but there was no good bye from mum or dad, no kiss and cuddle, nor did they chum him to his new room. Zilch, nada, nothing.

ITT how to parent a VN protagonist:

Buy him invisible censor condoms.

And I think they werent there so they didn't have to draw them. It sounds lazy, but having developed (still do) games with a group of people, you always want to save as much time on art assets as possible.

The people you talk about probably have other distinctive qualities besides their disabilities. Like Rin would be "that redheaded girl in the art club who wears the boy's uniform and is very confusing to talk to," shortened however you like.
If learning about marine animal mating habits while browsing cripple porn is wrong, I don't wanna be right.

Being black, this made this thread 200x more hilarious lol. Since it shifted from talking about cripples and people with 'handicaps' to black people out of nowhere I couldn't help but think "so my disability was being black all along!?" ... thanks for the laughs guys'.

Oh.. And being politically correct or not entirely depends on the people or person you are speaking too or about; some strangers are completely okay with it and others will frown upon the slightest of slurs and street jargon. I say raise kids to be open-minded about such things and keep a nimble mind, but at the same time you obviously cannot openly refer to your children with the 'real' terminology such as crippled or disabled because society (IE. school) tends to teach children to be ridiculed by these terms from their piers so they might take it the wrong way.
