Em chỉ ước mình là cánh hoa bay
 Lạc vào khoảng trời anh vào một ngày cả gió

 Em nghĩ mình nên học cách tha thứ cho nhau
 Về những lời hứa khi tình yêu đầy nhất
 Em vẫn tin đó là những lời rất thật
 Nhưng hôm nay giây phút ấy qua rồi.

friendly reminder that arte/mis doesnt “kick out naughty lesbians for being gay!!!!!!! rick is a lesbophobe!!!!”

artemi/s disallows all romance. all romance. you can choose to be in a romantic relationship, but in order to do so you must leave the hunters. you can live a long happy life away from the hunters. all girls csnnot date. straight girls, bi girls, pan girls, gay girls, and ace girls cannot date. it is not “EW DIRTY LESBIANS GROSS!!!!!! I HATE GAYS GET OUT OF HERE!!!” its literally equality. its not homophobic. its not homophobic to treat sapphic girls the same as not-sapphic girls.

in the eyes of the young people that read it, it will be gay girls and straight girls being treated equally under the same rule. just because you wanna cry about how an old, straight, cis white dude isnt writing the hunters of artem/is as a catholic all-girls school in a yuri anime doesnt mean you should. he’s being respectful. in my eyes, he’s fixing his previous mistake of the hunters being all “ew!!!! kill all men!!!!!!” and the hunters appearing very hetero-centric. he realized that that erased wlw/sapphic orientations and wrote it instead of “you cant date boys!!!” as “you cant date at all!!!”

which is equality. which helps the target audience see girls who like girls and girls who like boys the same. because these are kids books for kids. made for children. written by a man who wants children to know they arent abnormal or wrong and wants to help normalize lgbt/mogai/queer orientations. yknow. in his books for children.

“About a year and a half ago, someone knocked on my door late at night. When I opened it, my mother was standing there with tears in her eyes. She didn’t have to say anything - my father had died. He had a rare heart condition, so we knew, at some point, that he would just go. It was peaceful, apparently, and very quick. My mother found him in his favorite chair at home with a book in his lap and a coffee on the table. My world collapsed. Growing up all I wanted was for him to be proud of me. I was so afraid he’d die and think of me as a disappointment. But three days before he died, during our last phone call, although we didn’t know that yet, he said "kid, the world is yours for the taking, and I’m so proud of you, and my work here is done.” I had just graduated with a bachelor’s and I was making plans for grad school. When I was younger, because of his condition, he was always trying to impart wisdom just in case he wasn’t around when I needed it - so for example he gave me serious relationship advice when I was twelve and it made no sense to me. Six months after he died I went through a really difficult breakup, and his decade old advice suddenly came back to my mind. He did everything he could as a father, to prepare me for the world.
I came to Amsterdam a year ago to do a master’s degree. The first few months were really hard. I was afraid to make friends of get attached, I think, because I was afraid to lose more than I already had. But there’s something about Amsterdam that either forces you or encourages you to just figure things out, and slowly I reached out and made friends and connected to family and really settled in. And Amsterdam became home. Coming here when I did turned out to be the best thing I could do for myself. This city has healed me. Right now I’m on my way to meet my Mum. She’s visiting because tomorrow is my graduation. That my Dad isn’t here as well is - is really hard. But today would’ve been his birthday, so we’re going out to get cake and celebrate.“


So I looked up information about the movie The Foreigner and I read from those that have read the original book that Jackie Chan’s character is actually of the Hoa people (ethnic Chinese living in Vietnam who have Vietnamese names, kind of like how many Zainichi Koreans in Japan have Japanese names), so I guess his casting isn’t so off if he’s supposed to be playing someone who is Hoa?
