Hi fellow translat0rz, ;)

I'm trying to get a second opinion about a particular speechbubble.
I don't think it's especially hard to translate, but I it's very important, so I would like erase all doubts with this.



I see the marked one as clear evidence that the speaker is female, but as I don't want to influence your thoughts (if that is even possible) I won't post my own translation.

Thanks a bunch for your help in advance

OH! I was just asked this question from a person on a different forum anyways- here is how I translated it^^;

うるせェな
God (F*ck!)

ダマれよ!
shut the hell up! (calm the F*ck down etc)

女のくせにっ
Act like a girl! [~のくせに = that they are a ~~ but aren't acting like it]

犯すぞ
I'll rape you!!

ああっ!?
You hear me?! (You want that to happen? /Ya hear? etc)
So I see the person speaking as a Guy~

I would agree with Taychan on this one for the conclusion.

Here's what I would trans it to:
うるせェな
You're damn annoying!

ダマれよ!
Shut up!

女のくせにっ
Damn female. (のくせに is usually used in this context when the speaker feels like the person is getting above themselves. Like saying "You're a damn female, and have no right to say/do such things.")

犯すぞ
I'll rape you.


ああっ!?
That clear!?

So the bolded part proves that the speaker is male.

But there are times that it means what I said... right?

I dunno, I've only ever read/heard it with WL's connotation. Of course, you live in Japan so you've probably heard it at least a few more ways, heh. I thought your translation was kind of odd for that particular phrase though, NJT.

Well definitely in manga, it usually used with the connotation I transed it to... but it can be transed the way Taychan did, on certain occasions. Mostly though in that way there would be something following it.

Example:
女のくせにそんな言葉使うな。
You're a woman, don't use such words. (Meaning: You're a woman, but you're not speaking like one).

Still, it really depends on the situation, and how the speaker's attitude is. But in this case of the earlier line, the rape comment makes it clear that the speaker is looking down on the girl.
