America, Bad, and Children: There is no such thing as an American dream n Europe we try to be civil and have empathy queeranarchism: queerautism: queeranarchism: love-geofffree: designatedheckingadult: queeranarchism: LOL NOPE Europe is racist as fuck. Europe has armed gaurds and high fences on its borders. Europe makes it illegal to rescue refugees at sea. Europe locks up refugee children. Europe has killer cops that shoot teenagers of color. Europe is full of fascist politicians nostalgically fantasizing about ethnic cleansing. Not a day goes by without attacks on Muslims. Fuck Europe. Can confirm. The problem with England (I can’t talk for the rest of Europe) is that our racism and our xenophobia and all our bigoted views manifest in a different way then America, and we use this to claim that it doesn’t exist, even when our country is built on it. We are taught that the British empire was a good thing, and pretty much no one here knows anything about colionisation and our role in most current world problems. But the amount of times that I’ve tried to talk about any issue within England and been shut down with the claim “well we’re not as bad as America”. That’s why the trump protests were so important. We are constantly looking to America to justify our own bigotry. We’ll call America out on their unjust wars, and ignore the fact our own army and government was supporting them. Listen, I like my country- I like that we have a rich history (not that I support it, but heck, everyone likes learning about the Roman Empire, doesn’t mean they think it’s a good thing), I like that we have countrysides and big diverse towns like London, I like that we love fish and chips and curry sauce, I love our old pubs and traditional pub food, I like that we have the NHS (though I dislike how it’s run), I like our sense of dry gallows humour, I like our film and tv industry, I love our history of theatre, I love our myths and legends. But god damn are we historically an awful country, and have we ever tried to make reparations? Our actions are still affecting other countries and ruining life. I don’t like the empire, I don’t like what the monarchy stands for, I don’t like our politicians that spew bigotry and hate, I don’t like our press which are like vultures, I don’t like the power the BBC has to cover-up actual sexual abuse and rape, I hate Katie Hopkins and that she has any platform to spew her hate, I hate Brexit and that it was founded on hate, I hate how we think our lives are more valuable than that of refuges or immigrants, I hate that we don’t think that we are directly or indirectly responsible for a lot of the refugees and asylum seekers that exist today, I hate that we have a system that is actively leading to the deaths of disabled people and that even when investigated by the UN and told to change because we were violating human rights we refused, I hate how we support America’s bigotry and then use their country as a shield when accused of our own bigotry. I hate that we, as a country, are incapable of accepting responsibility and making amends for our terrible actions. Incredibly well put. One of the tricky things is that every European country has their own fictional self image which it keeps repeating to convince itself it’s not a bigoted shithole. In the UK it’s very much focused on being better than the US, being civilized and polite and stylish, while.. ya know… having a lot of blood on its hands and doing all the same racist and bigoted shit everyone else is doing. In the Netherlands it’s focused on being ‘tolerant’ and gay-friendly and having semi-legal weed, while.. ya know… having a lot of blood on its hands and doing all the same racist and bigoted shit everyone else is doing.  In Germany it’s focused on having ‘learned from the second world war’ and being ‘better now, while . . ya know… having a lot of blood on its hands and doing all the same racist and bigoted shit everyone else is doing.

Europe is racist as fuck. Europe has armed gaurds and high fences on its borders. Europe makes it illegal to rescue refugees at sea. Europe locks up refugee children. Europe has killer cops that shoot teenagers of color. Europe is full of fascist politicians nostalgically fantasizing about ethnic cleansing. Not a day goes by without attacks on Muslims. 
Fuck Europe.

The problem with England (I can’t talk for the rest of Europe) is that our racism and our xenophobia and all our bigoted views manifest in a different way then America, and we use this to claim that it doesn’t exist, even when our country is built on it.

Asian, Beautiful, and Food: thirst-empress: spellcaster-queen-selene: Remember that movie in which Jack Black was a teacher and building a rock band and when a little black chubby girl asked to be a singer he only said "sure! let me hear you" and the moment she started using her beautiful voice his lit up like all of his dreams came true, PLUS the same little girl was scared that people would make fun of her because she was fat and he started listing awesome singers with some weight on and included himself and told her that people wouldn't laugh because she is awesome at what she does and that is all that matters PLUS that it's ok to enjoy food? Also, when a little boy asked to be the band's stylist he just said "sure, go ahead fancy pants" like, there wasn't a single second of questioning it, he went into "ok, that will be your position then" right away That fucking movie is an hour and a half of Jack Black teaching kids to love themselves disregarding all of the stereotypes And don't forget the Asian guy said he shouldn't be in the band because he thought he wasn't "cool enough". Jack Black didn't miss a beat by making up a secret handshake between he and the kid and telling him he's amazing at what he does playing the piano. After that the Asian kid even stood up for himself against a bully. And he put the violent kid with anger issues on drums and let him constructively work out his aggression. The musical is great too, give some of the songs a listen

The result is that she's basically doomed to live without human contact for eternity. Then she's hunted down specifically for her head by a demigod whose got all sorts of great toys and backing to get the job done and depicted as some sort of horrible monster for defending her turf from folks out to kill her There are some really interesting theories about regarding just what the whole 'gorgon thing was really about from a historical perspective.

The war began when North Korea invaded South Korea on June 25, 1950. Twenty-one countries of the United Nations eventually contributed to defend against communist aggression, however, the United States provided approximately 90 percent of the forces. Sometimes referred to as the “Forgotten War,” the Korean War would last for more than three years with nearly 1.8 million U.S. military personnel serving “in country.” The war claimed the lives of 36,000 American troops; a 103,000 more wounded; nearly 7,250 U.S. troops taken prisoner and approximately 7,700 American were declared missing in action. On this same day today UN Command says remains of 55 American service members from the Korean War were returned by North Korea. A U.S. cargo aircraft flew to North Korea to receive the remains and returned promptly to Osan Air Base in South Korea. This victory was made possible by the international policies that have been put in place by our President @realdonaldtrump never forget it.
