    Any ideas on how long until the 47th single is announced? Usually I'd expect an announcement after the album, but who knows any more lol.

    Maybe around early February and then the pre-SSK single around May. If it's not February, then expect it by the end of this month.

    Usually we would have already had it announced with the first performance being at Request Hour. So I'm guessing we will get the announcement (and maybe performance) at Request Hour.

    There was actually a Japanese flowchart I remember seeing on twitter, with similar layout but different questions and results.
    I think I got gachikoi for that one :^^;:

    Here it is

    Or like pretending to be super serious about everything? ;)

    There's nothing wrong with having a chara, even if that chara gets a little annoying at times (like running funny, or being over-the-top-serious).

    But this is a different level. It's almost like she has no other qualities other than screaming "I'M A FUCKING LESBIAN AND I DON'T GIVE A SHIT WHAT YOU THINK OF ME!!!" at the top of her lungs every chance she gets. Literally, every single time.

    You know who else is probably a lesbian? Naachan. And does she need to shove her shit in everyone's faces all the time? Nope. And that's why I respect her.

    @kyoto48☀︎☂ do you realise how insulting that is?

    That falls into the whole "I don't care if you're gay as long as you're not the flamboyant type" narrative.
    So it's OK to be gay/lesbian/whatever as long as you pass for straight? As long as you're quiet? As long as... what?

    Go watch RuPaul's Drag Race and learn a bit about tolerance, please.

    At least now we know why Momoka bothers some of you that much.

    Geez, people still get carried away with Momoka. I would actually be more surprise if she doesn't bring any surprise to every event she attends. I just stopped hoping for normality in her when she appeals her potential votes be sent to Mayuyu, when was that, 2012?

    Well, one basic principle of SJWs on the interwebz is - once they sensed anything remotely x-phobic - to act like the alleged opponent has the worst views on x ever imaginable.

    Kyoto48 didnt say anything remotely homophobic. Maybe they are asexual and feel easily offended when people speak openly about their sexual preferences. Ever thought of that?

    What I took from it is that he thought Momoka was exhibiting the "I'm the only gay in the village syndrome"

    I pretty much ignored it once the photo was released.

    But then people started giving their "opinions" about it... of course I wil make some comments. :awesome:

    I don't know too many asexuals who are offended by people talking about their own sexualities. That sounds a little...SJW to me ;)
    Also, that's obviously not the case since they said they respected Naachan for being quiet about her gayness

    I guess one basic principle of anti- SJWs on the interwebz is - once they sensed anything remotely questioning x-phobic - to act like the alleged opponent is the most sensitive user ever and doesn't have any valid points because they get worked up too easily ;)

    Sometimes, its extremely tiresome that people are not getting the most obvious sarcasm ever.

    About your other point, the problem here is obviously that no "valid points" had to be taken, because nobody got offended. Ok, somebody apparently got offended, but that is obviously their own problem (which might be news to you).

    In truth, there was no single valid point taken anyway, because the only retorts were "OH, SO HOMOPHOBIC!" and "Ah, you are that kind of people." In the end, we had exactly the situation you have described so well. Three overly sensitive people got easily worked up because of ..... essentially nothing. And one guy felt like defending their actions because some random dude (me) made a little fun of their reactions.

    Wow wow wow!!! Maybe I don't know a thing about these idols or not interested in idols personal life, but first: how do you know she is lesbian? If so, how can you judge her that she is trying to 'shove' herself all the time in everyone's face?
    If that's what you think, ok! But just take a time to rethink that maybe she just wants to be whoever she wants to be for whatever reason she wants to and it's her right. And not only that, it's also her work and she makes profit of it which is absolutely fine.
    And maybe it's a different level for you but not for others...

    And also, I think the initial point was if she was dressed accordingly to a specific occasion and not if she is lesbian or not, cause this is no one's business.
