A MESSAGE FROM THE AUTHOR, ODA EIICHIRO SENSEI, TO ALL HIS READERS, REGARDING ONE PIECE’S HIATUS
I TRIED ENDURING A BIT TOO MUCH, BUT THAT JUST MADE THE PROBLEM WORSE.
TO YOU, THE READERS WHO ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO THE REST OF THE STORY,
AND TO THE STRAWHAT CREW, WHO ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO MORE RAMPAGING AND GOING WILD,
I’VE REALLY DONE YOU WRONG.
AT THE MOMENT, I’M UNDERGOING SOME PAINFUL TREATMENT.
WITH LONG-AWAITED DEVELOPMENTS COMING UP IN THE STORY NEXT TIME, I CAN’T WAIT TO HAVE EVERYONE READ IT.
I FULL-WELL ACKNOWLEDGE JUST HOW LONG TWO WEEKS CAN SEEM TO YOUNG BOYS.
JUST HANG IN THERE FOR A BIT.

A comment on Of Dice and Pen: Sexism in Steven Moffat’s Doctor Who? The anonymous reader who sent this to me added:
This is one of the key problems I have with so many forms of Sci-fi media and the anon summed it up perfectly. In a futuristic world, in other universes and on other planets, the presence of today’s sexism is not only just as problematic as it is in any media - it also doesn’t even make logical sense in the majority of cases. Why is the Doctor, a thousand-year old alien who has been just about everywhere and experienced a melting pot of cultures, acting like the sexist old men from down the pub?
One of the reasons sci-fi is a fantastic genre is the pure escapism it offers, and unlike, say, fantasy, it can avoid the “But in the past sexism was present!” tropes and justifications that are often used (see GoT..) with relative ease. But so often it completely fails to do so, the writers unimaginatively falling back on today’s stereotypes - and the missed opportunities to be progressive in such a small way is very disheartening. I don’t know if it’s down to lazy writing or simply being oblivious that doing this is both very problematic andmaking their world less believable, but I can only hope more sci-fi writers manage to avoid this trap in the future.
