I am deeply offended by the hate speech used by the narrator.
Oh, and how does "Poison's gender is intentionally ambiguous" count as proof that she's a tranny? While I agree that there is little or no evidence to suggest that Poison MUST be a woman, canonically speaking, and I'm fine with the idea of Poison being a newhalf (it gives her more "personality"), the latest official statements from Capcom make it quite clear that the "gender question" has no canonical answer. The narrator blatantly ignores these facts and twists the evidence to try and support his contention that Poison IS, definitively, a newhalf, turning what would have otherwise been a witty and informative piece on Poison's role as a cultural figure, into a clear partisan hackjob.
Rubbish, I say!

This shouldn't exist, and yet there is 20 minutes of video about it. Yep.
17 minutes, tons of original images, a shit load of editing, and he doesn't even attempt to discuss the litany of societal issues raised by the character's history.
video game culture, indeed.

YOU DONT UNDERSTAND! A drawing could have a SECRET PENIS!
That struck me, too.
The game studio has elevated this obscure background character to a prominent position in their next game. I'm sure they're not doing this on a whim. They think their audience, which consists almost entirely of young men, wants to see additional development and facetime for a character whose only defining trait before now was her trans status.
That's honestly interesting and could start a real discussion about the status, portrayal and advancement of transgendered characters in popular media.
But the author didn't really try to do this, in spite of clearly having enough time on his hands.
meh not wierd enough.

I smugly dismissed this guy and turned the video off after he screwed up the Final Fight timeline. If you're going to sperg out on something, get the facts straight.

Argue about their gender all you want, but do not drink Poison. You will die.
