There is nothing wrong with being aisan or that girl being of asian descent. The only "problem", which isn't really a problem, is that Saber is
caucasian because she is from Britain, why? well, she is king arthur and the guygirl hails from there
. Frankly I don't see much of a problem with the cosplayer being from some part of Asia, just look at Shirou, he has orange hair... not only him, Sakura and Shinji have purple-ish hair too. I suppose that what Sepheriel tried to say is that the cosplayer, being from Asia, can't accurately represent Saber's ethnicity. Although that could be misunderstood as a "racist comment", I highly doubt that's the case; I just say this to be on the safe-side of the possible shit-storm so... Time to study a bit, laters.

Have you heard about the saying that goes something like "drunk people and kids tell no lies"? Well, that's just a fallacy.

Yeah you are correct. Although see does an amazing job, she does not accurately portray Saber because of previously said statements.

Same. If I were into Cosplay, I'd go as a western anime character, like Candianman.

Here it is :D
Psychological abuse or emotional abuse is a form of abuse characterized by a person subjecting or exposing another to behavior that is psychologically harmful.

Psychological abuse involves the willful infliction of mental or emotional anguish by threat, humiliation, or other verbal and non-verbal conduct. It is often associated with situations of power imbalance, such as situations of abusive relationships and child abuse. However, it can also take place on larger scales, such as group psychological abuse, racial oppression and bigotry. A more "mild" case might be that of workplace abuse. Workplace abuse is a large cause of workplace-related stress, which in turn is a strong cause of illness, both physical and mental.

Emotional abuse may entail the abuser downplaying the severity of abuse along with the act of invalidation. Invalidation is to reject, ignore, mock, tease, judge, or diminish the victim's feelings.

Community-based harassment, or gang stalking, is the adult equivalent of schoolyard bullying. Multiple individuals participate in the harassment of a single individual. However, rather than attack the victim physically, techniques are used to undermine a person psychologically. This can be far more damaging because not only is it hard to prove, but it is extremely traumatizing to the victim.

What sets community-based harassment apart is that its reason is often obscure to the victim. Without a solid reason for its occurrence, victims are often dismissed as delusional. In addition, this form of harassment often leaves the target a victim of ridicule among friends and family because of the subtle nature of the attacks, which further compounds the trauma. Psychological professionals, having received their own form of operant conditioning, look for diagnoses instead of considering that abuse might actually be occurring.

At the political level, this type of harassment knows no bounds and will continue no matter where the target moves. The objective is to make the target appear crazy, or to isolate and impoverish the target. Suicide, incarceration or death are also stated goals. The KGB and Stasi, among other intelligence services, have used this technique to disable opponents.
