1. Each main Legend of Korra villain represents a different political ideology.

    Even the more minor villains like Varrick (who is not always necessarily a villain) and the Earth Queen represent ideologies as well:  Capitalism and Monarchy, respectively.

    Gisella Perl was forced to work as a doctor in Auschwitz concentration camp during the holocaust.

    She was ordered to report ever pregnant women do the physician Dr. Josef Mengele, who would then use the women for cruel experiments (e.g. vivisections) before killing them.

    She saved hundreds of women by performing abortions on them before their pregnancy was discovered, without having access to basic medical supplies. She became known as the “Angel of Auschwitz”.

    After being rescued from Bergen-Belsen concentration camp she tried to commit suicide, but survived, recovered and kept working as a gynecologist, delivering more than 3000 babies.

    I want to nail this to the forehead of every anti-abortionist who uses the word “Holocaust” when talking about legal abortions.

    With her main characters, they’re so close to her now. It’s amazing to watch how quickly Tatiana can emotionally access these characters. - Graeme Manson (x)

    still completely blown away by how amazingly well done this little guy is—they gave him an incredibly expressive face without anthropomorphicising it one bit. he doesn’t have a shorter snout or bigger eyes or a more rounded forehead or anything, he looks exactly like a raccoon. but you can see every little irritated or devious or sad thought he has.

    just… amazing. i want that animation team to win some fucking awards.

  14. Why do you people have to make everything about race???

    1. Long answer: White Europeans decided to colonize the rest of the world. They enslaved, massacred, segregated, displaced, tortured, disenfranchised, and raped other racial groups. They stole land, resources, and art. They put other races in zoos and death camps. They destroyed written and pictorial history. They suppressed the religions of other races. They dehumanized us. They refused to teach the history of these atrocities in their schools. They refused to acknowledge the achievements of other races. They used the theory of their racial superiority as their excuse. All social institutions reflect this history. All affected racial groups are still feeling the aftereffects of this. So it tends to come up a lot.
    2. Short answer: Please shut up.

    Hi all,

    Just a reminder on this Indigenous People’s Day that the US military continues to occupy land on Okinawa, a kingdom that was colonized by Japan and subsequently used as a battle site by both Japan and the US until the US eventually started using it as a major base in the Asia-Pacific region.

    Beyond horrific incidents such as military exercises gone awry that have led to deaths, US servicemen continue to commit crimes such as theft and sexual violence. There have also been talks of further base construction that would lead to filling in a chunk of the ocean ecosystem Okinawa is known for.

    Okinawans are a native group with a unique language and culture (separate from Japan), and have faced waves and waves of colonialism and oppression.

    There is much work to be done.
