Appreciate this Mr. @malki . Did not expect to get a response from the original author of the comic work. You're correct in assuming that this was a 'good-faith effort' to describe the #sealioning expression in retrospect from an objective & historical point of view. 🧵1/10
Translators like me are in nature 'investigative' and we tend to explore the intent of the author and its context to understand the real meaning behind a certain expression or a term. To me #Sealioning was such new term. So as you said, I tried to do a 'deep-dive' into it. 2/10
Nor should the government be influenced by a powerful religious cult group that denigrates women, denies diversity, gender minority rights or same sex marriage, and forces upon an individual their values where women are depicted as inferior and subservient to the men by default.
And you are planning to come to a #statefuneral of a country 🇯🇵 infested with these ideals right up to the top of the government that enact policies that are directly in counter to what you believe and value. Please reconsider while you can. japantimes.co.jp/news/2022/09/1…
