Military Sign Language
YES, this is very relevant to my interests…
HUGE pet peeve of mine, I see it a lot in TV shows. The troops are walking quietly toward their objective. The leader holds up his hand in the halt signal and then
“THE ENEMIES ARE OVER THERE GUISE”
The whole point of these hand signals is to be silent so the close range enemies you’re about to engage DON’T HEAR YOU GIVING COMMANDS
though why I’m still expecting sense out of tv shows I don’t even know
oH MY GOD
I’m glad the video game sector doesn’t have any of that bullshit not in terms of content I guess since that can be complicated but in the fact that no matter where a game is made anyone can play it from anywhere and no one will give a fucking damn about it.
I don’t get what’s the deal with cultural appropriation. You wanna celebrate boxing day? go the fuck ahead I don’t give a shit. Like christmas isn’t even the same thing in japan. But it’s good no? I celebrated 4th of july before I became a citizen does that piss any americans off? you wanna dress up as the queen of england? fucking go ahead.
WHO GIVES A FUCK
I mean yeah there is some bad kinds. But grouping it all with that term and calling it racist and bad is just fucking close minded.
Anonymous said: is it racist for someone who isn't Japanese to refer to themself as ____-chan or _____-sama etc. because I know this guy who's always going on about racism but he has chan on the end of his url and I know a weeaboo that uses sama but I suppose that's expected from a weeaboo
Yes, it’s racist. I mean it’s pretty much accessorizing the language and if you’re not Japanese then you shouldn’t use chan, kun, sama, senpai, kawaii, desu, hime, and so on in the first place. That includes ANYONE who’s not Japanese btw (talking to ALL you white people, Asian people that aren’t Japanese, and other POC). Also while we’re sort of on this discussion, I’m sick of the term “waifu” and I hope it dies out.
That’s not racist, because it has nothing to do with the actual race, but it is cultural appropriation which is also horrible.
Cultural appropriation IS racism. And don’t try to talk over Japanese people on Japanese issues.
Respectfully, I disagree. I believe reducing a language to race is wrong, even if it is a language that almost exclusively belongs to that race.
A lady from Japan goes to America and starts a family with an American. They have a child. Does that child have a right to Japanese? How far along does it have that right? To 1/8th? 1/100th? Or consider persons who move to Japan and start their family either, but their children are raised there. Are they not allowed to absorb the culture because they’re “foreign”?
So yes, using those words, especially without context or as part of speaking and just using them to be “cute” or something (I’m looking at you, Avril Lavigne) is wrong but it’s cultural appropriation, not racism.
I can post whatever I want on my blog. Honestly my audience is non-existent, and this is the first time I’ve gotten a reply to any post I’ve commented on in many weeks, so I highly doubt I’m talking over her on her issue. But you know what? These things are blurry. That’s why I can have an opinion on them. I definitely think cultural appropriation works better, especially since it’s what they’re specifically doing, but hey maybe it is racism, regardless they’re both disrespectful to the origin culture.
Upon checking out your profile, I’ve noticed one of my points is a bit funny, as you are a Japanese-American. I just want acknowledge that I now know this, but my opinion is still mixed.
wow, 10/10 whitesplaining. good job. Me, I like whitesplaining with tea, because I love the taste of entitlement and ignorance. Also, the aftertaste of “knowing you’re doing something wrong and going ahead with it anyways” so sweet.
I disagree. Languages from all over the world borrow words from other languages. Languages evolve all the time and just because they seem to have become mixed doesn’t mean it’s racist. There are plenty of words in japanese that were created based off of german spanish and english words. Hell people in japan use english a fuck ton in between Japanese sometimes. Does anyone who speaks english give a shit? no. Do most of them give a shit about us doing this? no. It’s just you and some other people you’ve managed to make believe this is racist. Culteral appropriation sure, misappropriation no.I mean I do think sometimes people’s usage of honorifics is a bit unnecessary but why does it matter.
Also another thing just because you’re black/asian/hispanic/white or whatever doesn’t mean your opinion on something that offends you offends all others of your race. Most of them don’t give a shit for most issues.
the world is mixing together and I’m happy it is. the more the better. more shit will happen more things will be made. Sometimes even great things may come from people practicing things from other cultures. Fuck man.
Just let it go. like god shut the fuck up with all the shitty comments from all of you.
