Starscream a Girl in France?

Postby Archibald Witwicky » Sat Feb 10, 2007 10:19 am

I'm sure there are atleast a few people here who either post or lurk at ScansDaily on Livejournal. Recently this post appeared there: http://community.livejournal.com/scans_ ... tml#cutid1

In it the poster makes a brief comment.

Can anyone shed some light on this for me? Was Starscream really considered a girl in any of the French continuities(I'm persuming the poster is refering to the French G1 comics).

I read this one Wikipedia months ago, but I took it with a pinch of salt.

I'm not sure, but Shrapnel definitely was. (In the French dub of the movie, Kickback refers to him as "Mademoiselle Shrapnel.")

It's likely that Starscream was, then.

Yep, Starscream and Shrapnel were both femcons in the French dub. Leastways, Screamer was voiced by a female VA. The theme song is also great, in the sense of wonderfully, bizarrely French.

Samples here.

I guess this is kinda related: something that always baffled me was the fact that BW Airazor is acutally a dude in the Japanese show. They explain her (well, his) and Tigatron's relationship as a strong brotherly bond. Ick. The one scene that really gets to me is the scene from Other Visits, Pt. One where they look at each other with passion in their eyes and embrace each other.

Heh, heh... Hermaphrodite. :P
I always heard it was because the Japanese don't like female character that much. And what characters have we turned into girls?

Cybertron Overdrive would be the most recent example.

The Japanese are a very patriarchal society and likes to place women in lower positions than males.

Does anyone know the Frenchscream VA's name? I listened to the clips, and I actually really like the way she plays the role.

That makes everytime Megatron beat down Starscream that much more funny. When I was a young lad, I always thought Starscream was a girl, even in the US version. That Chris Latta had quite the odd voice to me as a 5 year old.

Starscream is a GIRL?! I think that my brain just melted...

That's weird, he looks nothing like a Femmecon! He has no feminine features. He's big and square and boxy, but Femmecons and Femmebots are usually smooth and rounded in design.

I wasn't certain of Starscream's gender when I watched the show as a child, but it's quite apparent now that he simply has a sort odd high-pitched British accent.

That's an understatement. Waspy as a girl?! That almost made my brain explode.
