i’m watching im3 with someone and i have portuguese subtitles on for the first time and they translated tony’s “heartbreaker” armor to “broken heart” instead and i’m so emo over this like he says “hey, Broken Heart, help Red Snapper out” i can’t believe that mistake in translation enhanced my general im3 experience by 9000000% i’ll never forget this
idk I just love how we Young People Today use ~improper~ punctuation/grammar in actually really defined ways to express tone without having to explicitly state tone like that’s just really fucking cool, like
So, I know this is non K-Pop related but since it’s speak your language day I thought I’d enlighten you all with the longest word in the Welsh language: Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch. (It literally translates to: St Mary’s church in the hollow of the white hazel near to the rapid whirlpool and the church of St Tysilio of the red cave)
I see a surprising amount of goyim (gentiles, non-Jewish people) saying this, and I don’t know who they’ve spoken to, but here are my thoughts.
It is absolutely okay for Jews to feel uncomfortable saying Hux is a Nazi. Nazis in real life are dangerous and harmful, and some feel it might be trivializing the word to use it on fictional characters who merely mirror Nazis.
This is why we call Hux a ‘Nazi parallel.’ Hux is meant to evoke Nazi imagery and ideas, and that’s a fact that is true regardless of comfort level with the terms “Nazi” or “Space Nazi” or whatever else.
Personally, I used to be very uncomfortable with just calling Hux a Nazi. I was also worried about trivializing the word, and I still think people with that concern have a legitimate point.
However, I’ve seen people twist the words I said way back when we were talking about this issue to say that Jews just can’t stand us saying Hux is a Nazi– He’s just a fascist! He’s just your average villain!
He’s just a child who was abused and deserves pity (?!?).
That’s why I now just call Hux a Nazi outright. I don’t mind if people are uncomfortable with that or like to call him something else– I’d definitely recommend gentiles say “Nazi parallel” over “Space Nazi”, especially if they’re uncomfortable with just calling him a Nazi.
Hux is a Nazi parallel. This is the truth, and this is not what is going to hurt Jews. You do not have to use the word “Nazi” on its own if you would rather not, and you don’t have to use that word anywhere near Hux if you don’t want to– but you have to acknowledge reality.
Please stop responding to criticisms of fandom’s anti-Semitism and increasing ability to humanize/romanticize Nazi parallels with “but Jews don’t want us to call him a Nazi!”
Yes, some Jews don’t want you to call Hux a Nazi. Those Jews have a great point and I have no problem with that. But Hux is still a Nazi parallel, and no amount of semantics discourse is going to change that.
I highly recommend reblogging this post if you’re in the SW fandom, Jewish or gentile. It’s very important to any discussion of Hux’s character, and I’m tired of the same old excuses getting in the way.
hello! so a lot of people have been relating to what I said this morning, about not getting asks. and it does break my heart knowing people are in the same boat as me; seeing others get asks, but not/barely
getting any ourselves.
so, what I would like everyone do is, take ten minutes, every week, and just compliment a few blogs, anonymously or not. it can be anyone. someone you think is not appreciated enough, someone you see often in your activity, someone you see on your dash a lot, anyone. take a little time, and send them something nice; it can be a “i like your icon!” or an entire paragraph. your choice. but I think we should spread some positivity around to as many people as possible and make them feel welcomed 💖
Some of you may have seen footage of Aqours’ First Live circulating social media recently.
This footage is illegal.
More specifically, it’s a satrip - illegally leaked footage from the satellite feed used to stream the Live Viewings. It shouldn’t belong in the hands of fans.
In fact, there is usually no officially released video footage until the Blu-ray preview and Blu-ray come out. Before then, any videos of First Live on the internet are likely illegal footage.
We understand that many of you are dying to to watch First Live, but for the love of Aqours…
DO NOT upload and spread First Live leaks around on social media.
By doing so, you are also publicly acknowledging that you are in possession of illegally leaked videos.
If you see any First Live leaks on social media, please report them.
These leaks have the potential to hurt future chances for Live Viewings. Live Viewings are a privilege, not a right. The satellite footage only exists because Live Viewings do, and if it keeps getting leaked and spread around every year, then Love Live! might decide that it’d be better to not have Live Viewings at all.
You may think that you are doing other fans a favor by spreading satrip clips, but you are also actively hurting the Love Live! franchise.
If you would like to support Love Live! Sunshine!! live performances, then please buy the First Live Blu-ray.
