Can you do an anime protagonist that starts swearing at the antagonist because they’re losing the battle?

This is one of the first pictures that comes up when you search “anime villain.”  No, I don’t know who it is, and you don’t need to tell me, because now he will forever be known as the Great Bokugoku-sama.

Anonymous: hi, i'm sorry if this has been asked but in your powerpoint you said that the tumblr sj community is guilty of antisemitism. what kind of things has it done? also, i love your blog!

I’ll take this one since I’m the blog’s resident Jew.  Oy vey, where do I start…

  • SJ community loves to police Jewish identity and silence actual Jews when they talk about their own identities.  This usually happens in context of either “Are Jews White?” or “Jewishness is just a religion” conversations.  In reality, Jews are an ethnoreligious group that ethnically originated in the middle east, and while some ethnic Jews have light skin, it’s actually due to centuries of forced assimilation in European and Slavic countries through rape, which is a big reason why Jewishness is matrilineal.  Furthermore, there exist Jews who do not look white at all.  There are black, brown, and asian Jews who are all ethnically Jewish, and these conversations erase them.
  • "Jewish privilege".  Fact: It’s not a thing.  It’s actually a very common anti-semitic trope that says that Jews run everything so they are not oppressed.  Jews are oppressed, and face anti-semitic violence.
  • "Anti-semitism is not just about Jews, there are other semitic people." While yea, there are other semitic people, the term "anti-semitism" was created by Germans in the 19th century to refer specifically to the hatred of Jews because it sounded more scientific.
  • Blaming anti-semitic violence in Europe on the actions of Israel.  I see this literally every single day on this site, and it’s very upsetting.  Jews that live in the diaspora are not responsible for Israel’s actions, and especially should not be suffering at the hands of white people in Europe under the guise of anti-zionism.  
  • Finally, and this is a big pet peeve of mine.  The only people I ever see reblogging posts about anti-semitism are other Jews.  Even a lot of my non-Jewish followers will reblog posts about racism, sexism, homophobia, etc. but ignore posts about anti-semitism, and that as a Jew makes me feel unsafe. 

That’s enough for now.  If you’re interested in learning more about Jewish identity and anti-semitism, you are welcome to check out my personal blog: yochevedke.  I discuss that stuff a lot.

Another Jew reblogging about anti-semitism. I’ve seen some increase in concern about this from goyim, but it’s been slow going. Hopefully we’ll pick up a big head of steam soon.

As a Jew, I’m actually terrified to talk about antisemitism when I see it, cause it’s been so belittled and minimized for me. 

Please call it out, guys, just like you would any other kind of bigotry or racism. 

I am not Jewish and am thoroughly uneducated on this subject. Until reading this post I had never even heard the term anti-semitic before. I know it isn’t much but I hope my reblogging of this is at least something.

I’m not sure whether to be reassured or terrified that anti-Semitism isn’t a well known thing in Korea, but still, good on this person for doing what they can for awareness.

This is the first book of The Inheritance Trilogy by author N.K. Jemison.

Yeine Darr is an outcast from the barbarian north. But when her mother dies under mysterious circumstances, she is summoned to the majestic city of Sky, seat of the ruling Arameri family. There, to her shock, Yeine is named an heiress to the king. But the throne of the Hundred Thousand Kingdoms is not easily won, and Yeine is thrust into a vicious power struggle with a pair of cousins she never knew she had. As she fights for her life, she draws ever closer to the secrets of her mother’s death and her family’s bloody history.
With the fate of the world hanging in the balance, Yeine will learn how perilous it can be when love and hate — and gods and mortals — are bound inseparably.

Read chapter 1, chapter 2, and chapter 3.
Here is the author’s blog.
This is N.K. Jemison:

Here is a decent interview with her discussing books and their covers.
Here is a fan art of the characters in the book:

Because so many people ARE making gorgeous literature and art and music and all kinds of media representing people of color, but not everybody has the machine behind them promoting them.

I have so much love for this series, and for her latest, the Dreamblood series. 
READ NK JEMISON’S BOOKS. DO IT NOW. 
You could read her blog too, but it would be even better if you bought her books first. :)

These books were fun!

READ THESE BOOKS. There are also canon poly characters, canon queer characters, ALL THE GODS, and tons of awesome, powerful women. Some of the best fantasy world-building I’ve seen in ages, too. Absolutely gorgeous storytelling.

Any of you guys have plurk?

namekian-maoh: Does Valmont breast feed Drago?

Nope!! Buuuuut~

Drago yes

I wonder if Valmont actually give milk though..?
And if so, how is he going to get Drago to stop?!?

It’d be funny if he formed a sort of liking for this ^

…… How about…. Valmont is actually alright with it because they’re ‘bonding’ but he always does it in secret because he’s embarrassed about it. (Drago gets frustrated when he can’t get at it when other people are around)

Gosh. Drago getting frustrated and trying to yank Valmont’s shirt down (or up depending on circumstance) XD

Valmont can’t wear button up t-shirts anymore because Drago keeps pulling at them until the buttons come off. He has to wear t-shirts until Drago is weaned. (Valmont only has button up shirts so he has to borrow some of the enforcers shirts and they all have shirts with dumb slogans and logos on them) 

PLEASE DRAW VALMONT IN STUPID T-SHIRTS
