What’s wrong with death, sir? What are we so mortally afraid of? Why can’t we treat death with a certain amount of humanity and dignity and decency, and God forbid maybe even humor?

Patch Adams (1998)

Imagine your favourite character is the Dangan Ronpa Mastermind and they kidnap you because they want you to feel despair.

[s] Make Her Pay(dancestor bonus round?)

All I could think of when I read that Damara killed Meenah was that there was essentially nothing new in paradox space, and that it must of gone down just like with Aradia and Vriska, so heres a series of panel edits I guess

Quinn, nervous for more than one reason, said, “This isn’t me dogging you or anything, Sam, but brah, if you really do have some kind of magic, you need to be figuring out how to use it.” -GONE by Michael Grant

Petition to make it a requirement that anyone attempting to analyze or critique Final Fantasy VII on any level, satirical or otherwise, is banned from using phrases like “despite looking like a girl,” “even though he wears girly accessories,” or “looks like a faggot” as though gender and sexual preference have anything to do with your ability to kick ass and take names.

On the note of Hannibal: Carthage was founded by colonists from Phoenicia, which was somewhere in modern-day Syria and Lebanon, and Carthage (the Barcid family in particular) was very heavily interbred both with the Numidians (whom the Romans depicted as black) and the people of Libya. Though Hannibal's own ties to Numidian families isn't known, his sister was married to a Numidian prince, so his family obviously had close ties to these families. It's quite likely he wasn't white.

In case anyone was wondering what happens when you hit the History Piñata.

There’s more you can add to this and there’s argument about all of that ^^. People who make games like this don’t care about the historical evidence or the interpretations. They care about selling their game. I mean, there’s more to it, of course, as I mention in the post linked above. But essentially, history had nothing to do with the creation of the image(s) being discussed; marketing did.

The reason I’m not doing what you’re doing is because justifying a marketing image with historical evidence makes no sense. It’s moving the goalposts of the discussion. Which is why I went to so much trouble to reframe that discussion. It’s a double standard, and it’s the reason you’ll see people going “but…you didn’t answer the question!!!” because they were expecting what you just did.

Time for this quote again:

[“The function, the very serious function of racism, is distraction. It keeps you from doing your work. It keeps you explaining, over and over again, your reason for being. Somebody says you have no language, so you spend twenty years proving that you do. Somebody says your head isn’t shaped properly, so you have scientists working on the fact that it is. Someone says you have no art, so you dredge that up. Somebody says you have no kingdoms, so you dredge that up. None of that is necessary. There will always be one more thing.” -Toni Morrison]
