Okay so if "nothing from this world" can harm Aku, then how about a weapon made from something not of this world, like a meteorite or something? (Also yes, someone please make an Avatar: the Last Airbender reference with this.)
What do you mean this isn’t what happened
Ok, but I thought about this question too when I watched the show, and I think Aku meant that nothing from this world could harm him as in nothing from this plane. Like, why else would a god-touched sword be needed if there was something else out there that could harm him? I think making the sword in the first place was more of a last resort kind of thing. Because if Ra, Vishnu, and Odin couldn’t kill him in The Birth of Evil, what other choice would there be?
I always got the impression that the gods felt that Aku wasn't really their problem. They handled the source pretty well, and compared to them Aku's not much better than a speck. 'Course, they had a responsibility, but they also felt that mortals could handle it, so they just gave them a tool to do exactly that (too bad the Aku's a cheating little donger)
jesus yknow maybe that’s one of the reasons i hate the idea that the queer community is based on some level of being oppressed or having a certain set of negative experiences, because it’s like, there are some queer people who have had a much harder time than i have that i would never, ever compare my experiences too, and then there are queer people who act like just because we’re together in the queer community means that they have all the exact same experiences as me. but that’s not what this community means. you don’t get to claim someone else’s experience of their life. that doesn’t mean you’re not allowed in this community, it just means to think about what you’ve actually experienced versus what someone next to you has, and consider that those two things might not be the same.
You cannot challenge racism, on this level, by being nice to and reaching out to white supremacists. Their entire ideology revolves around dehumanizing us. It just does. not. work.
You cannot fight fascism by prioritizing the feelings of fascists and letting them think they’re safe around you. You don’t “get them on your side”. Because treating them kindly and respecting them, gives them your silent approval and access to those of you who are way more vulnerable than you are and who cannot afford to feel safe enough to “debate” with these monsters.
Our humanity is not a question or a debate topic, and by giving these people a platform you legitimize their views and help spread them to a larger audience.
