Honestly, this post was really eye opening. It used to be, people thought anyone could become president. Then that slowly dwindled… And now Trump has proven that any idiot can, indeed, make it to the white house.

Didn’t do shit in Link’s awakening though

This post has over 50 thousand notes and this is the most baffling response to it I have ever seen. 

Yes, Zelda didn’t do anything in a game that she was not in. You fucking got me. In other news, Mario is a bad character because he didn’t do shit in Metroid Prime. 

Ocarina Zelda really didn’t do all that much. She held the carrot on the stick, and gave you the light arrows, but really and truly, she got her ass kicked twice.

Tetra, by comparison, was an accomplished pirate, and joined you directly in battle against Ganon.

BotW Zelda fought off Ganon for a hundred years, and was incredibly intelligent without the triforce of wisdom’s power.

On the other hand, Oracle of Ages/Seasons Zelda, I can barely even remember.

On the other other hand, Twilight Princess Zelda only surrendered because her soldiers lives were at risk, and she was a stoic ruler even as a captive.

Zelda is widely varied across her reincarnations, some were born great, others started with nothing, some achieved greatness, others were just the princess in the fridge. Different Zeldas really shouldn’t be lumped into one group, and instead treated as individuals.

Honestly, Link is pretty generic by comparison, as lovable and dorky as he is.

This gif is outrageous

 ■ The so-called “blood explosion” which punctuates the conclusion of Akira Kurosawa’s 1962 movie Sanjuro remains one of the most memorable and influential special effects in film history.
Production designer Yoshiro Muraki would later recall this scene was filmed in a single take. No such effect had ever been attempted before, as movies of the time rarely showed violence with graphic detail. Filled with uncertainty, Muraki worried the blood spray he’d rigged up wouldn’t impress Kurosawa, so he added an extra 30 pounds of pressure to the fluid pump. At the moment the pump was activated, the additional pressure caused the compressor hose attached to actor Tatsuya Nakadai to blow a coupling which created a slight, unintentional delay before the fake blood began to spray, and caused a much larger gush of fluid than planned. It sprayed so powerfully Nakadai claimed it almost lifted him off the ground. His heart sinking, as he believed the delay and over-pressure had ruined the effect, Muraki nervously glanced at director Akira Kurosawa, but Kurosawa only nodded in approval.

Honestly, the Babadook officially being recognized as a gay icon is the greatest thing to happen so far in 2017.

I wonder if tumblr realizes they’re actively harming the LGBT community and hurting the chances of LGBT representation in media due to their actions. Probably not. And if you have to wonder if this post is about you then yes, it is about you. Stop driving writers off social media, stop harassing people for drawing characters the “wrong” way and FOR FUCKS SAKE STOP BULLYING PEOPLE TILL THEY ATTEMPT SUICIDE YOU FUCKING MONSTERS. But you won’t listen. You never fucking listen. You’ll just keep going and keep hurting others in your self righteous bullshit. Fuck you. Fuck you for causing writers to shy away from LGBT stuff because they’re afraid of you monsters. Fuck you for causing people I care about to attempt suicide because you couldn’t handle a piece of fan art. But this won’t change anything, because you don’t listen. And you never will.

“Why do you hate white people”

Slavery, genocide, gentrification-

“No I mean just this morning”

Slavery, genocide, gentrification..

I…can’t even begin to imagine having this train of thought.

This just in: Apparently whites are the ONLY race EVER in the HISTORY of the WORLD to enslave people, be genocidal, or do anything bad ever.

The majority of those crimes were created and enforced by white people and Britain literally colonized 90% of the world. Google it u boring stale end piece of white bread

“White people created slavery, google it!” 😂😂😂😂

lol literally all u have to do is Google “Britain colonized…” and then the rest is done for u. U don’t even have to use ur brain, it’s so easy for u :^)

Black Tumblr: Black civilizations, which practiced slavery and violently conquered rival tribes for land and resources, existed thousands of years before Europe! Also Black Tumblr: Britains invented slavery uwu.

When you google specifically for the answers you want to find, you typically get them. Imagine that :^)

“You’re trying awfully hard to defend white supremacy friend

Again, the British colonized the majority of the world. That’s a fact. The Native American genocide was the most successful genocide in history. Over 90% of the Native American population was wiped out. Slavery in America lasted nearly 300 hundred years. The entire world is influenced by European beauty standards and people of color in ethnic countries around the world are called “savages” when in America, where the majority of the population is white, and the majority of rapes and mass shootings are committed by white men, no one would dare to call white men terrorists.

Are you purposely not putting two and two together also who do you think you’re fooling and also stop wasting my fucking time”

>tfw you get called out and proven wrong so you copy-paste your stock response over and over regardless of whether or not it makes you look even dumber because your response doesn’t have anything to do with what is being said.

Who’s defending “white supremacy” by pointing out that you have a high school understanding of history and an America-centric understanding of slavery?

The vast majority of this is your inflated opinion, lol.

Can we also just discuss the fact that black people don’t have a copyright on slavery? That Jews and the irish, and many other white nations where slaves long before (and still continue to be slaves long after) black slavery was ended? Not saying it wasn’t bad for blacks but that doesn’t mean it’s exclusively a black thing. It happened everywhere, many people where slaves, many people of many nationalities and some of those nationalities were slaves treated far worse then black slaves. I understand there is still a lot of prejudice around, and I sympathize greatly with the prejudice that yall go through, but I’m so tired of hearing about slavery like blacks were the only people who went through it.

The most successful genocide was at the time of King Sikandar Butshikan in Kashmir (1389-1413 Bc) when the entire population of Kashmir was either killed or converted toI Islam.

Anyone here from Carthage? No?

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

The Thot Heard Round the World up there hasn’t read anything besides Tumblr posts and whatever she specifically googled for.

Yeah that’s pretty obvious. It just makes me sad though. Like I said though I mean slavery isn’t copywrited by anyone and yet they use it as if it were and that makes me more mad then anything I think. Also I really love your posts and for some reason Tumblr keeps making me unfollow you? I hate it cause you’re my favorite politics blog.

I think a big part of it is because of how slavery is taught in schools, it’s almost always focused on American slavery and very rarely does it foray into the much more prolific slave trades around the world, for some reason.

They tend to gloss over a lot of the rough parts of other people’s history. Like, we learned about the 5 pillars of Islam in school but never talked about the slaughter of the Jewish tribes.

That and “woke” idiots like op seem to clump together and share the same bad information with each other where everything bad, ever, was done by white people, who are a homogenous culture and race, apparently.

Hey thanks! I think it’s because we’re mutuals, there’s some kind of glitch going around.

My people have roots in Huns and some Arabs, both perpetrated those crimes at some point way before European colonialism was a thing. “Teach me about slavery without making me hate white people~” Easy-peasy: I’ll teach you about ALL of it.

How do you discover a place if people already live there? That would be like me going to the left of my house and being shocked that there’s a McDonald’s there.

In the sense of their society discovering another society. It’s not a surprise to see a McDonald’s in a first world country, but encountering a whole new race and continent is a ‘discovery’ in an age of relative ignorance like they lived in. Nowadays, you can scan for tribal villages with the Google earth satellites, so it’s not quite special anymore.

wait is that what vore is

eating someone

yo what the fuck

no you’re thinking of cannibalism

vore is swallowing

what the fuck is the difference mate

teeth or throats

what in the fuck is the difference mate

In one, the subject gets torn up by teeth. In the other they’re swallowed whole. 

boy

they’re the same

fucking thing

Look, shig, I can post a picture of vore vs cannibalism so you can see the difference. Is that what you want?

I am very much fine without that, thank you

It’s cannibalism when they’re already dead. Vore is when they’re alive, or when they somehow don’t die.

Why SJWs hate Japan

rabbittiddy:

superllama42:

Imagine you’re an ideologue. Imagine you’ve made it your life’s goal to co-opt and infect as much creative content as possible with your ideology, either through getting into a creative team or managerial team and affecting it directly or crying and bullying them via social media into complying (or just destroying their lives and blacklisting them.) Things are going great. Mass Effect Andromeda has like maybe ONE white preset in the character creation and softcore gay sex is getting touted as a selling point by one of he creators and there’s a character who’s chomping at the bit to tell you how trans they are. Who cares if the actual game is a smouldering dumpster fire that’ll eventually EA the company, you’ve accomplished your mission.

But then there’s this pesky island across the Pacific that keeps turning out alternative content. There’s all these anime and games with jiggly boobs. They made a couple games with a sexualized female protagonist and when you went to bitch at the creator on Twitter he blocked you, and then when you cried about how misogynistic it is you were informed that the character was designed by a WOMAN of all people! Some fucking weirdo with a creepy moon head put out Female Robot Ass Simulator and while you were virtue signaling about how sexist it is it suddenly became a tremendous best seller in the West. One of the most popular anime of the year features a girl with gigantic tits being vaguely inappropriate with a grade school boy and the creator apparently used to draw lolicon and no matter how hard you try to destroy their career over it nobody seems to care. Even when you finally manage to intimidate a developer into not releasing a volleyball game with jiggly girls in skimpy swimsuits overseas, an import website capitalizes on this and goes “Hey the game’s pretty much in English already you can just buy it from us!” and now all you can do is cry impotently about how you’ll never buy anything from them ever again even though you never actually did in the past.

All these fucking assholes in Japan keep staying just out of reach of your ideology and producing all kinds of easily-accessed alternative content with all the things you hate, and even if you managed to get them scrubbed clean via localization you can never erase the original and people will always be able to get their hands on it. Meanwhile things like western gaming market and the western comic market are getting derided as creatively bankrupt ideological cesspools and all you can do is fall back on your default plan of blaming white men for everything and trying to shame them into not buying things you don’t like (which obviously isn’t working.)

Outside of media production, Japan pretty much crushes all the primary SJW beliefs just by being there. Every time you cry about cultural appropriation, the Japanese people are there encouraging white people to wear Kimonos. Every time you demand diversity because everything is full of white people all the time, some asshole points out that Japan is like 99% ethnically homogenous and actually pretty xenophobic. Every time you talk about how inherently evil white people are and how without those nasty europeans everybody would live in peace and prosperity, some pesky historian comes along with a (long) list of the war crimes and human rights violations of the Japanese Empire. Japan is a prominent and easily accessible example of a place that is absolutely not america (or even western Europe) and yet still somehow displays all those things that SJWs tell you are your fault.

congratulations, you’ve taken the media that is MOST HATED by any mainstream culture in japan, stated “this is what japan is”, and called that an argument. you wanna talk about “creative bankruptcy”, let’s talk about how many animes that are just moe tiddies are getting published in-between any with an actual story.

(the full speech, for even more context and the tears of 2d fetishists)

meanwhile our second contestant manages to have the same grasp of cultural appropriation as any 12-year-old too new to this site to understand nuance or the fact that the opinions of the people in the culture in question is VITAL to determining whether or not something is even appropriation in the first place!

is this really what the bigot brigade has lowered itself to? y’all used to be able to put up a front of smokescreen to make it actually hard to refute your bullshit. this is just amateur hour.

Latest Tokyo Governor wants to convert Tokyo into Anime Land

Tokyo Governor Cosplayed as Sally the Witch

Also, Miyazaki was criticising the otaku culture and how people who make anime/manga are not in touch with reality. He did not say anime was a mistake, he said anime OTAKU were a mistake.

Besides, if people really hated anime and all its derivatives, wouldn’t it die out right about now? I mean, Astro Boy came out in 1952. That’s 65 years ago.

.

and speaking of asking the opinions of people OF the culture

Yuta asking Japanese people on the street about wearing Kimono  

A personal opinion but nonetheless you were talking about people of the culture true?

Still not enough, here’s a traditional artist who dyes formal kimono and his opinion about foreigners wearing kimono. Skip to 8:45 for the exact opinion. Otherwise, enjoy his dyeing process.

The opinions are the same. Wear the kimono, it’s okay.

Hell Miyazaki’s statement is more about “inmates running the asylum” who he feels do poor work because they don’t people watch.
