its heartbreaking because

Do you ever get to the point where you think, ‘Wow, I think I’m over you’ and for an all too brief moment, it seems like you can breathe again, but then the memories come washing over you like a tidal wave and all you know in that instant is how bad your heart still aches for that person you lost and that how unlikely it seems that you are ever going to stop loving them completely.

Day 7-Saddest Moment-Gigi following N instead of White:
This moment made me cry a bit I won’t lie. Bonds were tested here at this very moment. Its even more heartbreaking because it proves N was right. Pokemon have feelings as well and we should heed them. Gigi wanted to battle but White didn’t listen. I still felt bad for white going through such a traumatic experience. I’m glad White and Gigi got back together though.

  • <p> <b>What she says:</b> i'm fine<p/><b>What she means:</b> in the first season of Skam, Isak is told by his best friend that "he only knows gay songs", and then when we get to know him again in season 3 we find out he nowadays listens to music that makes him feel tough. That that's the specific reason for it. We get a deep insight into this image of heterosexuality he's trying to project, and that dissonance in characterization makes it clear that it's something he's forcefully constructed in the last year. There are many more explicit examples of his internalized homophobia, but this one strikes me as especially heartbreaking because it's a direct response to something that was meant to be a casual remark, but had a deep impact on shaping his self image.<p/></p>

Something’s been bothering me since I watched 4x03 and it all really came to a head tonight watching 4x07. Analysis w/ talk of torture and mental health under the cut. It’s rambly so I apologize if some parts don’t flow nicely, I’m very tired right now. Feel free to add your thoughts! Sorry about the length!

So let’s talk about Caleb and Ben…

“You don’t forget what’s it’s like to be putting on a show, wishing all the time, that somebody, anybody who can help will say ‘what’s the matter?’ And hoping all the time that nobody does because you have so much to hide”

Never trust a man who makes fun of another man for crying. Crying is a normal human reaction, and in this instance, the man was crying over his DEAD GRANDMA who he loved dearly. It's heartbreaking because this guy is a real sweetheart, and then some asshole had the NERVE to try and make a joke out of him. Thankfully, no one thought it was funny, and he pulled the "i was just joking" card. Pathetic.

Toxic masculinity at work.

“I’ve been seeing a lot of defenses for the ScarJo casting that seem to lack a nuanced understanding of a Ghost In The Shell as a story. The manga came out in 1989, the first film 1995. An era whenJapan was considered the world leader in technology. Everything hot in that era came out of Japan. Cars, video games, walkmans, all of that. Japan was setting a standard. This is a country that went from poised to conquer to the Pacific to forcibly disarmed. They poured their resources into their economy. And as a country that was unable to defend themselves, but was a world leader in tech, it created a relationship to tech that is unique.

Ghost In The Shell plays off all of these themes. It is inherently a Japanese story, not a universal one. This casting is not only the erasure of Asian faces but a removal of the story from its core themes. You can “Westernize” the story if you want, but at that point it is no longer Ghost In The Shell because the story is simply not Western. 

Understand that media from Asia holds a dear place in the hearts of many Asians in the west, simply because western media doesn’t show us. Ghost In The Shell, while just one film, is a pillar in Asian media. It’s not simply a scifi thriller. Not to me, not to many others. Respect the work for what it is and don’t bastardize it into what you want it to be.”
