one of my favourite things about the winter soldier tough

in the original arc, it takes a deus ex machina to make a dent in the winter soldier’s programming. steve has to bend reality to get past the mix of amnesia, brain damage and brainwashing […]

and then you have the movie. after two minutes of violent knifeporn and steve calling him ‘bucky,’ the winter soldier starts to crack […] through nothing more that the sheer force of steve’s kicked puppy eyes and bloody-minded miserable desperation and the power of friendship.

that’s it: this is steve roger’s superpower. heart.

And that’s why you don’t write meta that concludes that Steve’s power is Heart.

Yeah, I’m myself half Chinese and the bullshits you can read on website like tumblr about Asian country as a whole…it makes me want to eat my computer. (yeah, like this :D) …anyway love talking to you. :)

I get angry about what they say about Europe which isn’t half as ignorant as what I read about Asia so yeah I can only get it :/ *consolatory hug* and thank you, likewise! ;) <3

I lived one year in Japan and the racism against Asian country and even some Western country (I won’t even talk about the racism against black people) is very strong and complicated. /:

Yeah I’ve only had peripheral knowledge for the way it is in modern times but when I had to study 20th century Japanese history in HS I had a taste ://// and I have a friend from the Philippines who has told me some seeeeriously bad stuff so whenever I see all Asia lumped into a single unit by these people I just wish they’d go read a book y’know. :/

uhm, no it was by a western girl who lived in japan for years and was talking about her experience there as a foreigner. I don’t think I’ve see the post you’re talking about.

the one I talked about was something about anime - there were people bitching about some character’s race or sexuality not lining up to what they thought was politically correct and this actual Japanese person went and did a long polite nicely worded post explaining them that anime comes from an entirely different set of views than theirs, and explained how it trans issues work in Japan and so on and she got trashed for it. like the last comment was about them having to delete their blog. Figure that out. :/

Actually, Japanese /themselves/ see themselves as Western/European, not as Asian…

Yeah I actually thought they did as well? Which totally doesn’t make sense for the ‘EVERYTHING NOT WHITE IS POC/NOT-WESTERN’ *sigh*

Actually they’re 3rd after US and China. ;) But yeah if they can be considered as POC by US standard they don’t have the same problems than let’s say China or an African country or a South american country. We are all different ^^

.. my bad, I missed the year when the Chinese surpassed them ;) but yeah exactly everyone is different and everyone has different problems/issues, lumping everything into a single pot and judging everything by US values won’t make sense most of the time. XD

I once saw a post about someone explaining how racism worked in japan and subsequent attack by other sjb accusing her of ‘white tears’ and being told to shut up because no way pocs are capable of racism so she was making it up, or being a weeny.

was that the post made by an actual Japanese woman? Or was that one about how people don’t get certain things about how anime works and she was shot down because they’d know better than her? I can’t remember but lol do these people ever looked Chinese/Korean/Japanese history in the 20th century? Because if there’s not racism in there….

What is funny is that even if Japanese people are “yellow”, they are consider as Western people by economists or geopolitics. so if it was as easy as the colour of the skin, we would know.

ikr I laugh when they say that Japanese people are *oppressed* or stuff like that - do they know Japan is the second most important world economy? (Or it was last I checked, they’re still in the G8 for sure XD) I doubt they think they’re oppressed by white people. Like don’t lump everything in the same box, it’s not that easy.

OMG FUCKING THIS, people who post stuff like “I learn more in Tumblr” makes me want to scream. Yeah and I just hate being call a POC like the colour of my skin is the most important criteria in the world. Again that is a very american way of thinking

yeah if they actually LEARN MORE ON TUMBLR I get legit worried because tumblr is so *not* a source of 100% reliable information. And this thing where the first thing people notice is skin color or sexuality or gender as if it made your opinions more valid or not just because of that is imo completely out of this world stupid - I think you should be judged by the kind of person you are, not by your skin color or who you like to bang in bed (which is your business only anyway). I can’t obviously speak for different ethnicities but I’d feel pretty fucking demeaned if someone said I was right and a man was wrong just because I have a vagina y’know? That way of thinking never goes in places I like tbh. :/

I have a very big issue on tumblr with the white cis people vs the POC rest of the world. I’m POC myself and I can’t help cringing at what I can read sometimes. And as if POC was just one family and not many origins. Anyway, I can rant to no end.

tbh POC as a word makes me generally uncomfortable because it’s like, WHITE PEOPLE (without making a difference in between cultures as if it’s the same if you’re from the US or Ireland or Germany or what have you) on one side and then THE REST OF THE WORLD on the other when like someone from Africa won’t have the same issues/story as someone from Japan (or even Japan vs Korea vs China), so yeah it lumps so many different ethnicities into a category and then treats them like there’s no difference between them and I’d rather just say where they come from directly? Never mind that then I have to read stuff like ‘Italian/Greeks/Spaniards in *Europe* are POC’ (well they’re POC just when it’s convenient but..) and I laugh myself silly because that’s so misinformed I can’t even. Then I see those ‘I learn more from tumblr than from school’ posts and I get worried because god forbid someone actually thinks that stuff is true, but. /o\

Well I think that there is no small battle but, yeah totally. What is annoying in the S/J is the very US centric side, the complete lack of research and thinking and the aggressive tone. It’s annoying because it gives a bad img to rightful fights.

*applause* YES THIS. I’m also very much annoyed about how much everyone assumes things work like in the US everywhere (hahaha no) (I’m not going to redirect to the whole ‘pocs in Italy* drama because I honestly can’t but like even if you explain how it works differently they think they know better than people WHO ACTUALLY LIVE THERE) and if you disagree you’re a piece of shit. Like, that’s not how you do activism? And yeah that was exactly my main issue, since these are rightful fights and *serious* matters this pseudo-activism just backfires in the face of everyone who does the real kind of. :/

to be honest, I doubt that feminists are most of the people who are SJ in Tumblr. I consider myself quite a feminist but I find these SJ post very very annoying.

my very humble opinion is that all the supposed *feminists* on tumblr don’t even know how feminism really is supposed to work /o\ I’d consider myself one too but if it means worrying about how men sit in the subway versus girls in Saudi Arabia getting married at eight years old I might raise my eyebrows XDDDD

We had this white tower, and he asked me to go after it with him the only way he could ask, so I saddled up, because he was my brother, you dig it? We got there, too. Found the White Tower. But it was poison. It killed him. It would have killed me. You saw me. You saved more than my life. You saved my fucking soul."
