Fight Together #7: “Transgender Representation”

The One Piece Podcast presents our topic-focused series: Fight Together. In this series we explore the major themes, stories, influences and ideas in One Piece, as well as the reverberations it has made in the real world. We do not shy away from the uncomfortable. We critique and criticize, and we explore topics that polarize. We hope you listen with open minds and open hearts. On this second episode of our second season we have co-hosts Zach Logan, Shannon Strucci (video essayist, @struccimovies, @criticalbitcast & @strugglesesh) Bryan Newton (animation director for Rick & Morty & Teen Titans Go) with special guests @CarolAveryGrant (writer featured in VICE, IndieWire, Medium), @TheDrMonkey (NB game developer), and @VriskaChat (podcast host for Toho Yaro). This month we discuss what’s done well … and what’s done not-so-well … in One Piece‘s representation of transgender and gender-fluid characters. The contradictions in Eiichiro Oda’s portrayals of transgender characters, and how we wrestle with those contradictions. Articles discussed on this episode: * The Story of Okiku: Banchō Sarayashiki* Institut für Sexualwissenschaft* The Philosophies of Horror: Or, Paradoxes of the Heart by Noël Carroll* Why Sanji Meeting Yamato Has LGBTQ+ Fans on Edge We’ll see you in June for our episode all about Film & Media with the cast of Toho Yaro!
