Some of the best alpine/woodland military camo is developed by the Swiss, but most of the rest of the world refuse to use it because it has pink and red splotches on it, making it look “unmanly.”
Honestly if you’d prefer to risk it for the sake of looking “manly” then you deserve to get shot.
"That couldn’t possibly work, Roman! Alpenflage is dumb and you’re dumb!”
DO NOT I REPEAT DO NOT PLAY “WHERE’S WALDO” WITH THE SWISS
YOU WILL LOSE

Please watch this 3 second clip from an actual George Washington documentary.
This isn’t exclusively about Chinese women, but I think it’s pretty darn relevant to some of the issues discussed/to be discussed on this blog.
And, even though the examples used in this video were about Japanese women—it’s not a surprise that East Asians are treated as a single entity, without recognition of the wonderful diversity within each separate culture. Before we even get to the fact that these men care little to nothing about who you are as a person—they care little to nothing about your culture and heritage.
The number of times I’ve seen people say, “but I love Asians/Asian culture!” makes me want to high five them in the face with a chair. There is no love there, only misconceptions and fetishization and Western-centric idea of what this single entity called “Asia” is supposed to be.
(And I could go on about geek racism and the fetishization of East Asians because of media and popular culture…thank you otakus and weeaboos…..)
So, so relevant to people who identify as otaku, weeaboo or are ‘really into Asians’. Please watch this! She puts it so perfectly!

"It’s quite a fun relationship, but no, I did call and say, ‘I want no Papa-Nicole moments’. I think there was a bit of tension with that at first, but I was absolutely adamant.”
Fuck. Yes. Everything about this article just made me want to pick up watching Doctor Who again. Capaldi will NOT be bullied by Moffat.
"I didn’t want to be Doctor Who in a Doctor Who I didn’t like," he said. "I had to be convinced the show was going in a direction I was interested in."
Allergies are weird as heck. You can snap a humans leg in half and they can recover but if you eat this peanut u dead
Robin Thicke is unapologetic about how rapey ‘Blurred Lines’ is, meanwhile the dude who parodied it issues a public apology for one word.
And that is just one reason why I love Weird Al.It’s great that he’s addressed this but are we really supposed to believe that NO ONE during the extremely lengthy processes of writing a song, recording it, mastering it and animating the music video wouldn’t have brought it up?
Excuse me but how the hell is spastic even remotely insulting?
So I just recently learned that in the UK calling someone spastic means the same thing as calling someone retarded, only much worse.
If it makes people in the UK feel any better, people in the US literally do not know this (like literally no one I have ever met and/or know). Here being spastic is usually meant to mean something along the lines of acting like a hyper-active child (like running around in circles yelling just because they feel like it please be quiet for just 2 minutes type of child). NOBODY here uses it as a slur.
Since Weird Al is a US musician and the US music industry is pretty non-international, yeah actually I think its entirely possible that none of the people who worked on this song actually knew that spastic was considered an awful slur in some parts of the world.
And I’m like 99.9999% sure that Weird Al is genuinely very sorry that he was accidentally offensive.
don’t get it twisted like i respect bugs for being the best they can be in spite of their specific assigned flesh prisons and their ecological significance but they need to stay the fuck away from me
